Although mentioned in the title, this post is not for Sugar alone. :-)
Actually, I'm going to the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show at the end of September. In attempting to introduce cake decorators to Murder Takes the Cake, I called Jo Ellen Simon of the River City Confectioners Association. She was warm and encouraging and told me I should talk with Kerry Vincent. If you've ever seen a Food Network cake challenge competition, you're familiar with Ms. Vincent. She gave me Ms. Vincent's e-mail address, and I sent her a message. She promptly responded with her phone number. I called and she was delightful. She was excited about the book and invited me to come to the Oklahoma State Sugar Arts Show, as it would be the perfect setting for a cake decorating mystery. I told her I would be there on September 27, notebook in hand. Actually, I'll have a notebook in one hand and a camera in the other. I'm sure I'll have lots of pictures to post upon my return.
Naturally, I have several posts to write between now and September 27, but I was so thrilled about this I had to go ahead and write about it. Plus, if there are any cake decorators who read Fatal Foodies who will be at the show, I'd love to meet you!
