Kandy’s birthday s’mores

July 21, 2015

In Dowser 4 Jade takes Kandy out to dinner for her birthday. They go to Fable Kitchen and have s’mores for dessert. Well, last Saturday I was lucky enough to dine at the same restaurant and partake in the same insane chocolatey goodness.

Behold the beauty! From the menu: chocolate ice cream, brownie, marshmallow.

The only problem was that I had to share it with Michael. :D

Dowser 5: cupcakes

July 13, 2015

I’ve had a few requests to post a list of the cupcakes eaten or mentioned in the Dowser books with each new release. So, I thought I would dash off this blog post just in case anyone wanted to bake before – or while – they’re reading Dowser 5 (release date: July 23, 2015).

New Creations (recipes to come):

Vixen in a Cup – chocolate gingerbread cake with a salted caramel icing.

Blitzen in a Cup – a rich but airy chocolate cake that was heavy on the mocha and iced with eggnog buttercream.

Joy in a Cup – a simple buttercream-frosted lemon cake (Recipe will be posted – along with a giveaway – on the Reading Cafe on August 7, 2015).

Old favourites:

Charm in a Cup – lemon cake with strawberry buttercream

Love in a Cup – chocolate cake with strawberry buttercream

Buzz in a Cup – mocha fudge cupcake with mocha buttercream icing

Charm in a Cup

July 10, 2015

Here is Charm in a Cup from Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic (Dowser 1) and  Maps, Artifacts, and Other Arcane Magic (Dowser 5).

This is a super dense, but moist, sponge cake. The cake is also the base for Sunshine in a Cup and Joy in a Cup. The frosting is also the icing for Love in a Cup.
