i heart new york

Monday, June 27th, 2011

so proud of my spiritual home state. alternative title: taste the rainbow

special thanks to blue rooster for the gift of neon and to my gay-married friends for letting me borrow their cake server.


my very handsome, charming, and brilliant husband, who i am so grateful i was allowed to marry (in the great state of new york) adds: “Lady Liberty and her longtime, blind-folded girlfriend Justice are getting married.”

happy easter!

peep show

Monday, March 21st, 2011

easter candy is the best holiday candy there is. if you disagree, your mouth is broken.

did you ever wonder how peeps were made? oh, yes? then let me show you:

mad genius bonus hour:

i got an email from jon at enjou chocolat the other day, complimenting my work. this was very exciting because i have long dreamt of being willy wonka someday, and also because flattery works wonders on me. he asked if i might give a go at making a tiny version of his… are you ready? CHOCOLATE DIPPED PEEPS.

that is some goddamn taking the sunrise and sprinkling it with dew action right there.

if you wanted to actually try some of these you can buy them here. to see my version (tooth cracking, unsatisfying) click here.

i am kind of obsessed with fortune cookies. i never, ever pass one up. if we are at a restaurant, and they are served, participation is mandatory. my tablemates must eat theirs, read their fortunes aloud, pass them on the next person, whatever ceremony i can come up with on the spot must be performed by all present. fortunes i especially like go into my purse to float around for ages. the cookies themselves are delicious when they are roof-of-your-mouth-scraping-fresh, or chewy, flexible, and stale. i was really excited when i got a box as a birthday gift. i have a problem.

please, be an enabler and help feed my habit by purchasing a signed limited edition print of my tiny fortune cookies here.

i was compelled to make miniature twinkies because i’d always heard that they weren’t really baked, were just some bizarre chemical plastic treat, and that the slightly darker golden color along the bottom and sides (which i realize you can’t see here, but trust me) was air brushed on to make them seem like a more wholesome fresh-from-the-oven cake. trickery!

i can’t seem to find any evidence supporting the fake bake story, so i have a hunch it was an urban legend someone’s mom made up to make them sound gross and unappetizing. it worked on me, i can’t remember the last time i ate one, and i have had no desire to eat one- until i started working on these. i found my self looking longingly at the little packaged pairs in the checkout line, in my mind justifying their purchase in the interest of my “art”, but i managed to crank out a few little tiny twinkies without succumbing to the cream filled sirens.

it’s hard man, every day i pray for strength.

you can buy your very own limited edition print of my twinkies and their little hostess cupcake cousins right here.
