Wow! I cannot believe it is already August! 2013 has been fast-paced, and has went by so rapidly that it’s difficult to even look back on this year and reflect on all of the things I have done. While it’s certainly been fun, it’s also been so busy that I haven’t been able to regularly update TheHomicidalHomemaker.com! However, in my spare time, I’ve been hard at work on publishing my first cookbook and making jewelry and merchandise for my online store that will be launching soon.
Anyhow…last month, I sponsored the Viscera Film Festival in Los Angeles on July 13th. This was my third year providing goodies to one of their events, and I was very happy to be able to do it this year, as I missed out on the summer 2012 ceremony (for good reason, though; I was hosting a screening of “Slumber Party Massacre II” in Fresno that day!)
For this year, I made my signature Blood Red Velvet™ cupcakes with white chocolate zombie heads for the VIP room, and my signature Ghost White™ cupcakes with white chocolate skulls and roses for the general admission attendees. All decorations were handmade.
Traveling to Los Angeles (a three-hour drive) with hundreds of cupcakes and hundreds of little white-chocolate skulls and zombie-heads in a little car was not an easy task, but I made it work, and assembled everything in my hotel room before the event.
The cupcakes were extremely well-received. I didn’t return home with a single cupcake!
Several folks took a few of my business cards, and I am happy to say that I’ve gotten many inquiries about orders and events in the future.
The lineup of films this year was the best one yet, in my opinion. Congratulations to the winners!
Karen Lam, “The Meeting”
Jen Moss, “My Brother’s Keeper”
Mai Nakanishi and Christine Joy (producers)
, Nicholas Humphries (director)
, “No Place Like Home”
FRESH BLOOD (under 18 category): Maddison Lopez, “Outbreak”
And just on a side note, I was extremely thrilled when I saw that one of my favorite actors ever, Bill Moseley, posted a photo of my cupcakes on his Instagram!
