Dowser Series: ‘Cake in a Cup’ T-shirt and a giveaway

November 27, 2015

GIVEAWAY CLOSED. Winner: Lucky #45, Avanti from Indiana!

Last but not least! Cake in a Cup!

Elizabeth models the Cake in a Cup T-shirt - white printing on black

Elizabeth models the Cake in a Cup T-shirt – white printing on black

This logo makes its appearance in the Dowser series (of course), but the actual T-shirt is due to show up in I See You (Oracle 2). Here’s a sneak peek of the scene:

Chi Wen, the far seer of the guardian dragons and my old-as-ass mentor, had apparently decided that his typical gold-embroidered white robes and sandals would stand out too much in Yachats. So he was now clothed in a baby blue, oversized short-sleeved T-shirt emblazoned with a fuchsia pink Cake in a CupΒ β€” Taste the Magic logo. The shirt hung almost to his knees, his cargo pants ended at his lower calves, and he was wearing black combat boots to complete the ensemble. – I See You (Oracle 2)

Three guesses as to who dressed Chi Wen. πŸ˜›

The logo also appears in Jade’s bakery in the Dowser Series, as well as on Blossom’s apron in Dowser 5!

Note the chocolate cosmos. πŸ™‚

I made the ‘Cake in a Cup’ T-shirts available in white printingΒ as well asΒ pink printingΒ in the maximum colours I was allowed by the retailer (five). They are printed on fitted American Apparel T-shirts and THEY FIT SMALL!! Elizabeth is wearing an XL in the picture, and she usually wears a medium. I knew this about the American Apparel T-shirts (I also wear an XL) but I really like the fabric and the flattering fit. The site suggests going up a size – based on their sizing chart I’m a large – so please check the sizing.

    Hmmm it is really a tough choice to just pick one… It is really down to a choice between Lust in a Cup, Buzz in a Cup and Vixen in a Cup πŸ™‚ But I going to pick Vixen in a Cup as there is almost nothing like the smell of gingerbread filling the house at this time of the year…

    My favorite “cake” recipe is for Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes. They are cupcakes, but just like eating pumpkin pie, without the pie crust, YUM … I need to figure out a conversion for a “cake in a cup”, so I can have them whenever I want. I’m a pumpkin junkie!

    Charm in a cup, lemon cake with strawberry… a taste of summer. I know it’s sacrilege but I’m not a fan of chocolate cake. If I don’t win, this shirt is going on my Christmas wish list.

      Entry #49 – LOL, good plan!

    • November 29, 2015 8:31 PM

      Entry #53 – watch your strawberries with that one … some strawberries are runnier than others (who knew?) and then the icing is too runny.
