Beloved young adult writer Judy Blume was greeted with an adorable and appropriately-themed welcome amenity courtesy of the W Austin during her stay in Austin on Friday, June 12. The hotel's pastry chef Angel Begaye whipped up desserts and drinks in honor of Blume’s novels: fudge brownies from Superfudge, and cherry, orange, and raspberry "freckle" juices of the similarly-named novel. A drinking glass was decorated with a chocolate painting of the latter book’s cover.

Blume was in town last weekend to promote her new adult novel, In the Unlikely Event, at BookPeople.
