Killer Cakes – Issue 46

Posted on Jul 30 2012


I have some exciting news–Gayle Trent just signed a contract for Book 4 in the cake decorating mystery series! It will be titled Battered to Death and should be released sometime in 2013.

Event Spotlight: 2012 Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show

At right is the cake that won First Runner Up in the 2011 competition and was prepared by Pamela Tsaldaris of Michigan. This year’s theme is Once Upon A Wedding Cake. Presenters at this year’s show include NYC pastry chef Martin Howard (follow Martin on FB) and master sugar artist Orlando Serrano (contact Orlando via email at

Of course, Kerry Vincent will be on hand to oversee the festivities. You might be familiar with Ms. Vincent as a judge from the Food Network Challenge shows, but did you know that she was inducted into the International Cake Exploration Societé Hall of Fame in 2004, and then the Dessert Professional Hall of Fame in 2010? If that isn’t impressive enough, Ms. Vincent has lived in the United Kingdom, Mexico, Switzerland, Singapore and Holland. She is a successful author, freelance writer, international presenter and wedding-cake-style advisor and designer.

Start making plans now to attend (compete in, maybe?) the 2012 Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show. Sign up for email updates.

By the way, Ms. Vincent asked Gayle Trent to send some signed copies of the cake decorating mystery series for the show. Gayle sent four copies of each of the three current books for Ms. Vincent to share with contestants and/or show attendees!
