Secret Lives of Baked Goods: Book Tour Dates!

What's cuter than a cupcake and ten times sweeter?

CakeSpy of course! And if you want a piece of this sweetness, well, you're in luck, because I am headed on book tour next month! I'll be bringing not only my amazing self but stories to tell about baked goods--after all, that's the point of my delicious new book,  The Secret Lives of Baked Goods: Sweet Stories & Recipes for America's Favorite Desserts. And in some cities, I'll even be doing a demo or bringing sweets with me. Just read below--I've detailed where I am going and what type of event is going down in each city!

Here are the places I will be (oh, and a printable text-only version can be found here!)
