Today I have something hugely fun and different to share with all of you for my stop on the Count Spatula's Guide to Baking tour. Having participated in a wide variety of blog tours over the years, it's always exciting for me when an author or publisher comes up something completely unique, so I hope you guys enjoy the below as much as I did!
For those of you who don't know, Princess Decomposia and Count Spatula is a graphic novel by Andi Watson that releases tomorrow from First Second Books. For the tour, Count Spatula himself (who just happens to be a vampire and a chef) is hopping from blog to blog sharing kitchen tips and tricks, recipes and all sorts of other delightful things you don't want to miss. I have the pleasure of sharing a very special recipe with you, one I'm greatly looking forward to trying as anything sugar-related is an automatic win for me!

PRINCESS DECOMPOSIA AND COUNT SPATULA
Princess Decomposia is overworked and underappreciated.
This princess of the underworld has plenty of her own work to do but always seems to find herself doing her layabout father's job, as well. The king doesn't feel quite well, you see. Ever. So the princess is left scurrying through the halls, dodging her mummy, werewolf, and ghost subjects, always running behind and always buried under a ton of paperwork. Oh, and her father just fired the chef, so now she has to hire a new cook as well.
Luckily for Princess Decomposia, she makes a good hire in Count Spatula, the vampire chef with a sweet tooth. He's a charming go-getter of a blood-sucker, and pretty soon the two young ghouls become friends. And then...more than friends? Maybe eventually, but first Princess Decomposia has to sort out her life. And with Count Spatula at her side, you can be sure she'll succeed.
Andi Watson (Glister, Gum Girl) brings his signature gothy-cute sensibility to this very sweet and mildly spooky tale of friendship, family, and management training for the undead.
