Gertie’s Cupcakes – part 3

June 25, 2014

When I released Dowser #1 in June 2013, I was completely blown away by a few readers who emailed to tell me that they’d felt compelled to bake cupcakes while reading the book. I’ve previously blogged about Michelle’s and Gertie’s – book 1 and Gertie’s – book 2.

Since then, Gertie has taken it upon herself to form the ‘Cupcake Support Committee’. It’s a thankless job, but she is obviously seriously devoted ;)!!!

Here is her contribution for Dowser 3 (posted on Flickr). They look insanely good, as all of Gertie’s cupcakes do. She puts my icing efforts to shame.

Happy Cupcake Day!

Thanks for sharing Gertie!

If you bake while reading the Dowser Series I would love to know about it!!

    Yay Cupcake Support Committee!
    Do you have a list anywhere of all of the cupcakes you have included in the books so far? That would be a cool post sometime if not! Oh, idea! A cupcake naming competition. That’d be fun. 🙂 (Who am I kidding, everything to do with cupcakes is fun. I’ll shut up about them now…)
    Started reading the book a couple of days ago, last night I reread the ending of book 2 to make sure I remember everything, so I can pick up #3 again tonight. I know Jade is in for some trouble…

      I definitely have my list, but I see now that you want to get your hands on it – hee hee!! I should have a master list on the blog somewhere, and slowly link all the recipes as I share them. I do need new cupcake names for Dowser 4, maybe I should do a contest? I’m going to test out some raspberry and blackberry ones. I tried to seed all the bits you need to know from Dowser 1 and 2 to start off Dowser 3 – and you can thank the editor for pushing me to add more – but I always reread when I pick up the next in a series I follow myself. Actually, I was thinking it would be fun to sit down and read all three Dowser books… right after I make cupcakes – LOL!! I do hope you enjoy the read, but poor Jade 🙁 I’m really mean to her.

    YES! That would be a lot of fun for the readers to participate in a contest, and you will probably get some cool names!

    Ah, we wouldn’t want you to be too nice to Jade anyway… 🙂

      You just like Jade’s coping mechanisms, Gertie. More cupcakes and chocolate!! LOL

    Gotta love me some Jade! I always read your books all over again before I go in for the newest . . . raspberry and blackberry….hummmmmm… will have to think about those! Maybe “Berry Berry Sexy”?

    Dark chocolate/raspberry cupcakes with blackberry filling and dark chocolate ganache topped with a fresh raspberry and blackberry? Hum… maybe too many flavours in the profile? How about lemon cupcakes with raspberry or blackberry filling and a blackberry or raspeberry buttercream frosting? Mix it up – blackberry inside and raspberry on top or the other way around? Blackberry Lemonade!
