You are all in for such a treat. When this book comes out on April 5th, you get to meet me! I’m sure some of you have been looking forward to meeting the best baker in Minneapolis. Don’t take my word for it, just take a gander at the first place prizes I’ve won.
You’ve probably heard of me in my capacity as one of the founders of the Minny Batter Battle. Get it? Minny for Minneapolis? And since it’s a baking contest, Batter Battle is the perfect name. I admit I have a flair for creating names. For instance, my own bakery shop is called The Pilsener. (From my last name, Pilsen.) Such a cute play on words!
Honestly, I don’t understand why people come in looking for beer, which I do not sell. It happens every week.
This year, Anna Larson will be competing with me, poor thing. She imagines that a dessert bar will beat a creation by me. We’ve been rivals for so long that I know I’ll win, of course. I think I’ll call and let her know I’m doing the contest again this year. She’s a nice woman, I guess, but I’ve never forgiven her for saying my distinguished white streak in my hair resembles a skunk stripe. I wasn’t meant to hear it, but I did. When you meet me, you’ll know that it looks much more like Cruella de Vil’s hair. I’m not a nasty person like her, but her hair is nice.
Can’t wait to meet all of you! Tomorrow, I’ll be public knowledge, see the light of day!
FAT CAT TAKES THE CAKE is the third mystery in the Fat Cat series, coming tomorrow, April 5th! Please check Janet’s webpage for ordering links.
