Pokémon Events and Food!

After being green-lit a few months back, I have been working on organizing a series of Pokémon-themed events and programming, and I'm proud to announce that Pokéthon is happening in less than a month!

We are being hosted by Otakuthon, an animé/manga convention in Montreal, Quebec. They already have a number of sub-events for other topics, such as the Touhou Project video games, yaoi (yep, yaoi), and ball-jointed dolls, and we're the newest one!

We're going to have a number of neat events, like a video game tournament, cosplay photo shoot, contest, and a bunch of panels. Thankfully I don't have to worry about running everything, but there's still been a lot to figure out.

I'll be posting updates and news on the Pokéthon Facebook page, so I hope you'll follow us and help spread the word!

In Pokémon dessert news, did you guys hear about the Pikachu Café in Japan? Don't misunderstand - I am not a fan of Pikachu, but show me any Pokémon edibles and I will be excited. What do y'all think of it?

So I shall make do with my own creations! First up, here's the next batch from my Cupcakedex project!

This time, we have Growlithe, Poliwag, Abra, Machop, Bellsprout, Tentacool, Geodude, Ponyta, Slowpoke, Magnemite, Doduo and Seel! All on banana cupcakes with cream cheese icing, which I had never made before!

Lastly, my friend Alex had her birthday last month, and I was determined to make a cake of her choosing. When she chose Arcanine, I was thrilled, even though I couldn't give her the cake until some weeks later. Still, who doesn't love Arcanine cake? :D

I'm really proud of how this guy came out! Since learning the buttercream transfer technique for cake decorating, I can't do it any other way! I'm really satisfied with how much I've improved over the past couple of months.

Thanks for reading!
