I Spy, You Spy: Cakespy at Venue

I think Jessie Oleson might have the best job on the planet! She is head spy at the Dessert Detective Agency known as Cakespy.  Are you kidding me?  Jessie spends her days tasting, and writing about, sweets and baked goods.  If you read my blog about Trophy Cupcakes you know how much I love cupcakes so her job seems ideal… what degree do you need for that career?  In her spare time Jessie has created a line of adorable artwork, cards and tee shirts featuring that charming, endearing and oh-so-sweet ‘Cuppie the Cupcake.”  The Seattle-based artist sells her commodities at one of my favorite Seattle boutique Venue in Ballard.

    Thank you so much for the sweet writeup, Raven!! I am so happy that you’ve discovered the artwork–and especially that you discovered it at one of my favorite places in the world, VENUE! You are a wonderful writer, I am so flattered!

  2. Hello Jessie. Thank you so much for your comment, I have to tell you that I discovered your artwork a few months ago at Venue when I was looking for a cheer up gift for a sick friend. She and I both love cupcakes so your small watercolor of a parachuting Cuppie was perfect. It’s turned out to be a real conversation piece in her living room and something that always makes her smile.
