Hey There, Cupcake! came out in Melcher Media’s first catalogue. That’s right, before the cupcake craze. This book inspired many folks and produced a lot of smiles. The Secret Life of Food was published by Hyperion Books’ adult and kids catalogues. It was sort of a cookbook, an inspirational creativity tool, an amusing coffee table book, and a kid’s story book all at once. It is much loved and has been printed many times in both hardcover and paperback forms. Both books were featured in many publications and television shows including: Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, The Today Show, CBS Sunday Morning, The New York Times, etc.
