I kicked out the idea for a society with a barter system in my last post and was pleasantly surprised when Madame Weebles and The Howler and Me offered to bake me cakes! Ding, ding, ding! Good answer! Holy crap I think I’m on to something here–I could get German chocolate cakes, black forest cakes, cakes with buttercream frosting piled three inches high — pink birthday cakes! I could sell my book for different kinds of cakes and we’d all win!
One idea spawns another — Fred begat his challenge which begat my response which begat this idea of me bartering for cakes. By the way, I want to back track on Fred’s question about how my uniqueness is being showcased in my blog. My blog is infused with a death metal sensibility — I’m iconoclastic, anarchistic, morbid, wry, extreme and dark, so there — oh yeah and I’m sweet as hell!
You sure know your cakes lol, that one in the picture looks yummy too. All that cake will only make you too sweet though ruling out all the extreme and dark :). You are one funny and clever writer
BB thanks so much! I’m glad that you appreciate! That’s right — I suppose the sweet cake would negate the darkness and I can’t have that! 🙂
Oh! Oh! I know! Next to the dollar amount price on your books, you could put little pictures of cakes that you’d be willing to accept in exchange for a copy of the book. Pictures of little cupcakes, little red velvet cake, little birthday cake, little devil’s food cake, etc etc. And Boomiebol is right–the cake pictured in your post looks yum.
mmmmmmmmmmmmm red velvet cake!!!!
You know I think I’ve had red velvet cake once. You’ve mentioned it a couple of times in response to my cake blabbering — I’ve got to try some again!
hahahaha really? I didn’t realize that. I do love it when it’s well done. I’ve had a couple that are not very good.
Right now, my favourite is White Chocolate mousse cake. Heavenly 🙂
Oh geez! White chocolate mousse?! Gotta try that one too! I’m in such trouuuuble…
You should come visit me and I’ll take you to this fabulous place called “Oh So Good”. It’s oh, so good! 🙂
You know I’ll keep that in mind. Some of the best names for shops get right to the point!
Oooohh Mme. Weebles — don’t give me any ideas! Doesn’t that cake look like it’d taste yummy — it’s a lemon cake! I looooove lemon cakes!
All your talk of cake moved your book to the front of my queue. 🙂 I started it tonight and am about 1/4 of the way in. I love the honesty in your writing; it’s almost like I’m a voyeur. “Kill Her” is my favorite so far. I’m looking forward to reading more. 🙂
Oh, I meant to add that I’ll leave a review at Amazon when I’m done. 🙂
I would appreciate that. I think it helps to draw people in…
Also Carrie — you’ve just helped to keep my mood up with this! Mucho thanks!
Carrie — thanks so much for this! I’m so glad you like ‘Kill Her’ because I wondered about it. My sister liked it a lot as well and I thought it was rather funny. I hope you enjoy the rest of it. It’s so funny how my talk of cake got you interested! Lol! I need to write the ultimate cake book!
Well, I suppose it was more than cake; it was also your infectious writing style. 🙂
Carrie — you’re helping to kick-start a great weekend for me! 🙂
Whipcream pie, of course.
Oh but of course nephew, while whipcream pie does not possess the same density or complexity of flavor as cake — as always — and I mean ALWAYS, under threat of violence — there will be special allowances, considerations and perks made just for you, my Royal Clown Nephew in Perpetuation.
