CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life - Jessie Oleson (Boek)

*****
What could be sweeter than a cupcake-stuffed cupcake? Perhaps a piece of birthday cake French toast? Or a Pop-Tarts ice cream sandwich? Maybe a piece of Magic Cookie Bar Pie? Oh the choices, how sweet they are. In CakeSpy Presents Recipes for a Sugar-Filled Life, readers find 60 of "Head Spy" Jessie Oleson's most popular, totally sweet treats, along with stunning photography so you can really appreciate the awesomeness of her desserts. And of course it wouldn't be a CakeSpy book without unicorns, robots, or Cuppie the Cupcake. Jessie's iconic and whimsical illustrations are featured throughout the book. CakeSpy's mission is to seek sweetness (literally) in everyday life, and this little book does just that.

Review
"Jessie's recipes inspire sugary-coated adventures in the kitchen. CakeSpy is a treat for the curious and kid at heart."
—Bakerella, author of Cake Pops

"Don't be fooled by her whimsical illustrations of emotive cupcakes and cake slices—this cookbook is not for the faint of heart. With over-the-top recipes like Glazed Cinnamon Rolls Stuffed with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Birthday Cake French Toast, S'moreos, and Deep-Fried Cupcakes on a Stick, this colorful, humorous, unapologetically excessive book promises insatiably sweet-toothed readers the ultimate sugar high."
—Library Journal

"In addition to her baking and blogging skills, the founder of Cakespy, Jessie Oleson, is also a talented illustrator, and has created a line of original artworkfeaturing such characters as Cuppie (the cupcake), Toastie, Pie Slice, and Doughnut."
—Saveur

"The woman behind @cakespy's cute and quirky Twitter commentary is just as sweet as you'd imagine. In fact, her life’s mission is to “make the world a sweeter place through art and baked goods.”
—The official Twitter Blog

"CakeSpy provides readers with sinfully delicious baking recipes, sugary tours of Seattle, and tons of her signature illustrations."
—Seattle Met

"Jessie Oleson's confectionary illustrations are absurdly adorable and sweetly subversive"
—Seattlest

"Cakespy (who I can't help but adore due to my love of cupcakes)...makes a strong case for eating cake in the morning."
—Slashfood

"Oh, Jessie Oleson from Cakespy, I do so love your whimsical art. Now, this might seem weird to gluten-free readers. Why in heavens would I recommend a website that glorifies the cupcakes, that sings the praises of bakeries around the world, and brings an overwhelming sense of glee of all that is sweet and baked? Well, you might not want to click on the main website, if you are feeling too down about not eating gluten. (For those of us are who are more hardy, it’s difficult not to feel the enthusiasm in the photos and words)."
—Gluten-Free Girl

"Anything touched by the sweet, arch, clever 'Spy' in her humor-mode is bound to bring on a smile -- if not an outright laugh. And now she's written a cookbook to bring some more sugar-filled hilarity to our own home kitchens."
—Rebekah Denn, Al Dente

"That Jessie Oleson is a woman of many talents—baker, writer, illustrator, businesswoman—is impressive. That this Seattle resident manages to make a full-time living by harnessing all those talents under an umbrella enterprise called CakeSpy is damned improbable."
—Chow

"Her work, a blend of charming and fey, is populated by anthropomorphic baked goods, chiefly a cupcake christened 'Cuppie.' She writes regularly about sweets, from delving seriously into the history of apple pie to creating wacky recipes like 'Cupcake-Stuffed Cupcakes' and 'Cadbury Crème Eggs Benedict.'"
—Seattle Times
