"In addition to her baking and blogging skills, the founder of Cakespy, Jessie Oleson, is also a talented illustrator, and has created a line of original artworkfeaturing such characters as Cuppie (the cupcake), Toastie, Pie Slice, and Doughnut."

"Don't be fooled by her whimsical illustrations of emotive cupcakes and cake slices--this cookbook is not for the faint of heart.

"Seattlest"
The table of contents for CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life reads like a fairly conventional baking-related cookbook...until you look at the actual recipes and realize that they appear to be conceived by someone in only the happiest of sugar-induced states. Which is precisely why you will be taken with this book...In all, it s a trip in and out of an imaginative mixing bowl.
Lisa Yockelson, author of"Baking Style"
Oh, Jessie Oleson from"Cakespy," I do so love your whimsical art. Now, this might seem weird to gluten-free readers. Why in heavens would I recommend a website that glorifies the cupcakes, that sings the praises of bakeries around the world, and brings an overwhelming sense of glee of all that is sweet and baked? Well, you might not want to click on the main website, if you are feeling too down about not eating gluten. (For those of us are who are more hardy, it s difficult not to feel the enthusiasm in the photos and words).
"Gluten-Free Girl"
Anything touched by the sweet, arch, clever 'Spy' in her humor-mode is bound to bring on a smile -- if not an outright laugh. And now she's written a cookbook to bring some more sugar-filled hilarity to our own home kitchens.
Rebekah Denn, "Al Dente"
That Jessie Oleson is a woman of many talents baker, writer, illustrator, businesswoman is impressive. That this Seattle resident manages to make a full-time living by harnessing all those talents under an umbrella enterprise called CakeSpy is damned improbable.
"Chow"
Her work, a blend of charming and fey, is populated by anthropomorphic baked goods, chiefly a cupcake christened 'Cuppie.' She writes regularly about sweets, from delving seriously into the history of apple pie to creating wacky recipes like 'Cupcake-Stuffed Cupcakes' and 'Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict.'
"Seattle Times
"Her book is delectable, deeply entertaining fun, and I bet I'm not the only sugar fiend who'll be cooking straight through it, start to finish.
"Edible Seattle
"The book is generously sprinkled with her charming, whimsical drawings, complete with speech
balloons, funny quips and asides that add another layer of sweet n sassy delight. I don t know
about you, but I love when my cookies, cakes and pies talk to me. And yes, star mascot
Cuppie is up to his usual mischief and will no doubt attract legions of new admirers. Jessie s art
is her distinctive brand it sets her apart from the legions of other dessert bloggers and truly
makes this cookbook a unique visual treat.
Jama Rattigan, author of "Alphabet Soup" blog
The recipes are accessible and give bakers options, such as making their own cookie dough or using store bought. Jessie s friendly voice reassures readers as they work their way through the recipes and you really can t help getting excited about the process while you re baking. As a result, these recipes will work for even the most timid bakers, while providing ideas an inspiration for more experienced cooks. The recipes are as fun as the illustrations and this is one cookbook that will put a smile on your face just by turning the pages.
"Baking Bites
"The book is beautiful. It's 100% CakeSpy.
"Scoopalicious
"For most people, a "guilty" pleasure is eating raw cookie dough. For Jessie Oleson, it's cupcakes or cinnamon rolls baked with cookie dough in their centers. Or a "Pookie," an entire apple pie wrapped in cookie dough and baked. Oleson takes your guilty pleasure and raises it a rainbow layer cake.
"Voracious

This is an extremely sweet book! Full of crazy recipes such as cookie cake pie, pie crust with a cookie dough and cake filling! Fun stuff like s'moreo's, Oreo s'mores and home made pop tarts! It is a real treat (pun intended) to read. The illustrations are cute, fun, and entertaining! I have followed Jesse aka Cakespy's blog for a while now and couldn't wait for her book! Even if I never make any of the over-the-top , super sweet, amazing desserts in this book it will always have a spot on my shelf! It is just fun to read and flip through!
Just a last note it is American! So, measurements are in cups and some of the products may not be found locally!, but you should be able to source everything online!
