Graveyard Cake

Some of you might remember this graveyard cake, put together by a mother/son bookclub reading The Good Thief. Now another group of readers in Rochester, NY has decided to create their own graveyard cake inspired by the book. Soon I may have to sponsor some kind of bake-off, but for now I will simply enjoy and post the pictures (special thanks to Chris Fanning for sending this one along). Later today I head to Rochester for their “All City Read” of The Good Thief, and hope to meet some of the chefs of this magnificent confection. Go here for a Reader’s Guide & list of events, sponsored by Writers & Books (who also put together a Good Thief scavenger hunt). For the next four days I’ll be upstate, reading and giving lectures, handing out wishing stones, presenting cartoon slideshows and playing the ukulele badly in public.
