How to Eat A Cupcake – Team Sparkle Style

The SCBWI winter conference was last week in New York. I was there, as were fellow Team Sparklers: Susan Adrian, Emily Hainsworth and Victoria Schwab… and more than a thousand other writer-people.

It was wonderful.

Just ask Susan:



Or Nova Ren Suma, who we dragged away from her deadline to come conferencing with us.

In fact, because they’ve already done a fabulous job summarizing and describing all the wonderful people, books, laughter, wisdom, and hijinks we discovered, I don’t feel the need to re-state it. Procrastination WIN! I will just add this:

How to Eat A Cupcake – Team Sparkle Style.

…because it is a widely accepted fact that all the best writing is fueled by sugar.

If you’ve never tried my less-mess sandwich technique, you’re missing out. Run, don’t walk, to the nearest bakery and procure yourself a cupcake.

Then, once the sugar-jitters have faded, sit down and write some sparkly words.

You can thank me later.


  • Oh, I love it!! Man, now I want a cupcake. And I just had a brownie.

  • Linda – My cupcake had brownie IN IT. I think you should go try and re-create this… then send me your recipe… and a sample.

    Nancy – You should make cupcakes, bring them to my house, and I’ll give you an in-person demo of the proper technique.
