For those of you who've read The Scorpio Races, you'll know what these are. And for those of you who haven't yet (it's due out tomorrow), you'll soon be in for a treat.

Holly, yes! Oh, yes . . .ReplyDelete
Oh sweet heavens thank you for posting this! I just read FYA's review and started foaming at the mouth when I read about cake, period. This is awesome and sounds so tasty!ReplyDelete
covergirl, lol. You're welcome!ReplyDelete
I LOVE this! Both that there's a recipe and that you made them :) I just bought The Scorpio Races and I can't wait to start!ReplyDelete
Alexa, doesn't the whole thing just make you grin? Enjoy the book. It's special.ReplyDelete
Oh, beautiful. I'm glad these will become part of the mythology, aren't you?ReplyDelete
