Bill, i am so glad you found some light on the new book for cupcakes, and thanks for opening this forum. The red velvet is also on my to-do-list, it is such new concept for cake bible people like us. The book is also spotted at my local B&N. Official publication date is not until September 26th, I believe, so I am just as puzzled as everyone is regarding timing! But the word is out, the world is out, let just bake.
My flesh and ink copy coming from Wiley hasn’t arrived yet, but I did rush and bought one copy at Amazon for Luca. Everyone told me that I should NOT have done this, was temptation since Amazon released the books a bit too early than officially published! I spent my weekend in great company of the book. There are very many new recipes and techniques one could have asked for.
I spent my weekend with the Golden Dream in Heaven, and THAT is all i will spill beans for until i have a chance to do the writeout that will post as my grand finale for the blog in October.
p.s. I am sending Rose a lot of gingseng and noni, so she embarks a very intensive publicity year (after official publication date or course). She needs to sell herself for the book, and we know it will be greatly appreciated.
