Here are some luscious photos from book release party for Sex and Candy: 22 Succulent Stories (Pretty Things Press) edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, held December 14 at Pete's Candy Store.
Editor Rachel Kramer Bussel, host and Sex and Candy contributor Jen Dziura, and Molly Crabapple look good enough to eat.
Keavy MacPherson Landreth of Kumquat Cupcakery made all 144 mini cupcakes in six different flavors, including peanut butter frosting with chocolate cake!
Tables were strewn with all kinds of candy and attendees munched on mini cupcakes. Jen Dziura, Tsaurah Litzky and Rachel Kramer Bussel all read from the book—respectively, "The Fat Box" (about some well-placed Twizzlers) by Jen Dziura, "Old-Fashioned Fudge" by Tsaurah, and Rachel read from Stan Kent's "Cupcake," in which the narrator actually has sex with (a la American Pie) a cupcake. Jen did erotic Mad Libs with some of the stories, having the audience call our appropriate (or totally random) responses, producing some hilarious results, and we gave away prizes including furry handcuffs and bondage tape.
