Clayton chef finds surprise success as buttercream sculptor

There’s spectacular cakes, and then there’s the art that Chef Rebecca Wortman creates with buttercream frosting and sugar pieces. Using the common cake topping, Wortman makes sculptures that have captured the eye of the confectionary world in just a few short months.


“I wanted to do something different,” said Wortman of her sculptures. “And it’s turning out to be good.”

Is Kris Crocker a killer? Find out Friday at The Mousetrap!

Is Kris Crocker a killer? Find out Friday at The Mousetrap!

Rumors have been swirling that our KXLY4 Chief Meteorologist Kris Crocker is a cold blooded killer, but thankfully I, Mark Peterson, am on the case.

Sure Kris Crocker is sweet, and she puts together a mean forecast, but could KXLY 4's mild mannered meteorologist actually be a murderer? The answer is just across the street from the KXLY studios at the Spokane Civic Theatre.

You see, Kris has been disappearing every night for hours and it turns out she's been cast in "The Mousetrap," an Agatha Christie murder mystery that first premiered on the west side of London in 1952 and has been running nearly continuously ever since.

"I'm trying to re-create the feeling of the original production in 1952," director Wes Deitrick said.

One way he's doing that? Real snow on stage.

"One of the things they did on the original production ... they had a snow room, and they would have snow on them and they would walk on stage and it would melt so I bought a snow cone machine so I could have snow on them," Deitrick explained.

A snow cone machine is interesting but, down to business, who is the killer?
