Treat or Treat

Before we hit the neighbourhood to collect a quite spectacular quantity of candy, we decided to go trick or treating at the Wallingford Center – a small collection of indie shops housed in a beautiful old wooden school building.

The star turn of the Wallingford Center is Trophy Cupcakes, Seattle’s best cupcake shop, which has recently been discovered by Martha Stewart, which had gone to town on Halloween-themed cakes.

We did have a rather fetching devil costume, but there was a last minute change of heart (and yes, our front garden needs WORK.)



These couture cupcakes were not for sale


These are their ‘special order’ themed cupcakes.  Lots of ideas for cupcake making next year.


And these are the ones that followed us home…

    Hi Paola,
    Just wanted to say that I’ve started reading your blog. I’m wondering if you have heard about the book, “What Men Don’t Tell Women About Business”. I heard the guy (Chris Flett) on the Today Show and thought you probably have already heard of him. I’m wondering what your thoughts were. He seems to be really taking on the ‘Old Boys Club”. I just emailed him, but haven’t heard back.
    Anyway, keep up the great writing.

    Hi Paola,
    I’ve been doing some additional research on the author, Chris Flett, that I talked about on my last comment. His company is “GhostCEO” ( and his book is a bestseller. I found it on Amazon here. Anyway, he was in the NY Times last Sunday under the “Career Couch” and he makes reference to women’s blogs like yours so I thought you might like to connect. I’d like to see you interview him and see what he’s all about. I saw on another blog he was a guest blogger. His email is:
    Best wishes,
