Happy Holidaze!

Yes, yes they are!
I have had numerous customers popping by the past few weeks saying the same thing, "Have you noticed your business slowing down in this economy?"
The answer, "Not at ALL! I'm near busier than I can handle!"
I've been leaving it at that, but I feel there is so much more to add.

I am unique.
What I do is unique.

One can't go anywhere within a good hundred mile radius (if that even), to get pastry like mine.

Fact peeps.
I'm not being snooty about it.
There are plenty of things I can't do well which I will readily admit to, but Food Art ain't on that list baby!

The connoisseurs that seek me out want delicious hand-made quality. It's not just food, it's a memory. Nourishment for your body & soul. That's what I create. Know what? I spent my holiday (Yule, Winter Solstice- Dec. 21st) creating for all of you and I didn't mind one bit! In fact, it makes me feel really good, knowing that I am making others holidays special, no matter what God or Goddess you might believe in, which religion you follow, if any at all! It matters not to me. I look past the labels to see the real person inside & I ask that all of you try to do the same. Hopefully you can do that whilst savouring my cupcakes. ;-) If not, enjoy some FoodPorn ala jin!

jin has strict quality control issues
she doesn't let just anyone savour her cupcakes

A glance at some of the items jin took with her to The Stumpjack Coffee Tasting a few weeks ago in Two Rivers.

Savouries! Boursin Cheese on Organic Crackers w/ Seckel Pears.

A few of the GORGEOUS ornaments Shelly at Humpty Dumpty Eggs in Reedsville made for jin this year. She hand-delivered them w/ her Hubby Mark. Thanks you two!!!

Single serve (3.5" diameter) Pumpkin Tarts in Jingersnap shells topped with crispy pastry.

Mascarpone Mousse & Rasperry topped Snowflakes
along with
Almond Macaroons w/ Bittersweet Ganache & Edible Gold Leaf

A traditional Yule Log transformed into a Cute Chocolatey Fishy Fishy!

A Holiday Array Display!

A jin with a box of delectable Candinas Chocolates (Verona, WI)
Thank you Mr. JDC!!! They are DIVINE!

It's been much too long
but the time is finally here
slowly peel off my clothes
catch a glance in the mirror

My body is trembling
in an-ti-ci-pa-tion
my senses alive
no more fab-ri-ca-tion

I slide into bed
and purrrr as I go
ready to be bad
glad no one will know

With a grin on my face
a moan passes my lips
long legs stretching out
wiggling my hips

MMmmm... the sensations
running across my tongue
I feel giddy and tingly
excited and young!

OH MY! Hit a spot
as sweet as can be
delicious and perfect
so smooth and tasty

I'm almost finished
what if my longings aren't quite fulfilled?
Good thing I brought myself TWO slices of Cheesecake
The other is in the fridge keeping nicely chilled.

Um, whaaaat? I'm not the only one who eats cheesecake in bed... am I???

On A jin Safari

From the Perspective of the Hunter:
I must. . . I simply
must see a jin close up before I leave this cruel world! Friday. Yes. This Friday I shall finally go through with it. After dusk. I will collect the proper attire so I blend in without disturbing the jin in her natural environment.

I have been observing her from afar, for a good long while. I believe I understand her patterns now & I know just where to sight her. Yes. . . yes finally. . . I shall see the jincreature in her entirety. . . . .

*fade out as his eyes glaze over & he strokes his chin in eager anticipation*

From the Perspective of the jin:
So many orders - so much to do! Zoom to the ovens - zoom to the counter - zoom back to the ovens - out of the corner of her eye she spies the truck, again, driving past, turning around, driving past, turning around. and again. and again. Ah well, no harm, no foul. As long as he's just looking a jin has no problem with that. Don't understand it mind you, as jins lean toward the exhibitionist side as opposed to the voyeuristic . . . but, whatever.

From the Perspective of the Hunter:
There she is! MUST get a closer look. I shouldn't but I must!

*dressed all in dark clothing the hunter abandons his mode of transport to follow on foot. . . *

From the Perspective of the jin:
She says aloud, "That is SO uncool!" as she briefly stops working for she notices the man creeping towards the front window; pushing his way around the bushes & trying to peer inside.

Kudos to the local police department. They arrived in about 3.5 minutes. Double Kudos to the freaking hawt friendly officer who responded.

Now, I do realize peeps think I lead an Über jinteresting life & they might wish to catch an uncensored glimpse. So I feel I must be 100% truthful here:

Things you really won't catch a jin doing while she works
  • Being Nude. Sorry to burst your bubbles, but jins really do wear clothing while they bake. It's kinda a sanitary thing.
  • Pole Dancing. First of all, there's no pole installed in my shoppe. Second, I'm too busy actually baking stuff.

Tried & Tested Tips on How to Spot a jin the Easy Way
  • Check for up & coming Open House dates, drive to her shoppe, walk in the front door, buy some of the pastries she works so hard to create. She'll probably even talk to you then.
  • Go hang out at the area coffee shops (Culture Cafe, Manitowoc Coffee, Stumpjack Coffee) that sell her pastries. You could catch her mid-delivery. Treat her to a steaming hot double shot (no sweetener, thanks!). She'll probably even talk to you then.
  • Buy yourself a place at this Thursday's Tasting deal at Stumpjack Coffee in Two Rivers. She'll probably even talk to you then.

Opportunity Knocks

Ever dream of living
mere steps away
from the scent of
Belgian chocolate

Belgian chocolate
wafting in your bedroom window
the soft pump of an espresso machine
waking you before the alarm
shocks your delicate senses

Imagine living right next door to a jin
a jin who loves to feed stray men
when they wander upon her back porch
& rub up against her leg
looking at her with those
puppy dog eyes

Is it your fantasy?
it could be your reality!

Opportunity Knocks!
The house next to my shoppe is currently empty.
The last neighbors were good.
But I have known many that were not.
Will YOU be my neighbor?
I have to say,
I don't want any more neighbors
that try to set fire to my trees
try to blow up my roof (accidentally) because you are too drunk to light your grill safely
put 45 gallon garbage bags full of trash in my backyard like I won't notice because you're too effing cheap to pay for garbage removal
did I mention NO trying to set fire to my trees (!)
having to watch/listen to the cops break up your 'Domestic Disturbance'
trying to kill the squirrels that I hand feed

I'll even throw in a little jincentive.
If you are a decent person
& save me from a horrible new neighbor
I will cook you dinner one night every week for as long as you stay there.
Dinner will jinclude a FAB dessert made expressly for you.

That's me, cooking your dinner!

I'm actually quite serious...
I'm 1906 Hamilton
The corner house, east of me, is empty.
I've not been inside...
it may be a fixer-upper!

Act FAST before it's too late!
Save meeeeeee......

There's a Blogfan at My Door!!!

I could sooo get used to this peeps!
Another Blogfan popped by to see me today!

Shall we play a little game?
Let's give you a mini sum-up of his blog
see if you can guess who it was!

"Start with the first meal of the day & toss in some military chemicals, add a few warplanes, plenty of attack dogs and hummingbird videos. Throw in a deliciously dark sense of humour that scares away the timid and makes jin's giggle uncontrollably. Take a virtual trip to a land of a hundred & ten degrees+ while in the comfort of your own temperature controlled office. A true omnivore who takes great pleasure in teasing us grazers mercilessly. (Shhh... we kinda like it! Don't tell him that though!) Lastly, toss in the occasional moving poem to round out this incredibly unique individual."

Can you guess?!!?
Can you?
you must know!

Ok Ok.
It's the

*drum roll*

Phosgene Kid
V Agent for Breakfast

We talked, we laughed, I got taken out to lunch!
Unfortunately I had no cool cakes to show off...
but sent Phos & his brother on their way with plenty of cookies for munching.

Phos from Arizona & brotherPhos from Milwaukee

A jin & a Phos

I've heard talk of Phos not being a hugger, but I got a few out of him! I think he just likes to have that tough guy persona even though deep down he's a big 'ole softy! He even told me I'm purdier in person... awww shucks.... *blush* way to make a jin's day!!! Bloggers ROCK!!! Who'd have thought this tiny piece of cyberspace I tend to would put me in contact with such wonderful human beings such as these two guys?!!? You two must come back again one day... I'll make a PhosCake! ;-)
