Please note: I have been unable to process shipping labels through PayPal and Canada Post; they are investigating the problem, but in the meantime I have shipped everything directly through the post office on Monday. Shipping notification won’t show in PayPal, but this will not affect shipping time for your package.
I recently read a thoughtful essay in the New York Times about the quiet subversiveness of 1970s children’s picture books. I remember all of those books fondly, and loved having a chance to revisit them as an adult. In their honour, today’s colournames are drawn from the books Frog and Toad Together and Owl At Home, by Arnold Lobel– and especially the charming pathos of the story “Tear-Water Tea,” about Owl thinking of sad things in order to collect his tears to fill a kettle for tea. It’s delightfully melancholy and funny at the same time. I highly recommend it!
To claim a gobsmacker, send me an email (email@example.com) letting me know the name of the cake and the base. The first person to claim a cake gets it. Things can be pretty fast and furious at the beginning, but I promise I’ll email you back to let you know whether you got what you wanted. Once the dust starts to settle a little, I’ll follow up with a PayPal invoice; if you haven’t ordered from me before, please include your mailing address (and phone number, if outside Canada).
Please remember that colours may vary across different devices; if you have any questions or would like a verbal description of colours, just ask.
