ANNOUNCING THE TITLE OF OUR UPCOMING BOOK

If you’re already subscribed to receive our Yummy Newsletter¬†in your inbox, you probably already knew this ūüôā Now I’m here sharing it with the rest of our readers and fans:
It is all coming together. I am just beside myself with excitement and disbelief (maybe a little sleep deprived too from all the endless night hours working LOL) that the time to announce our book title is finally here. Just like¬†we’ve spent hours¬†and hours in the past deciding on names for our two sons, we’ve done the same for our book. Surprisingly, the answer was right¬†in front of us the whole time. Seems it’s always that way, isn’t it? More on why we chose this title later on the blog. Choosing the title was¬†only the beginning. After doing so, we then began working on the overall design which is the fun part but also very hard to decide on. Who knew there were soooo many fonts available out there? Now I do.

Without futher due –¬†Drum roll¬†please……………..

The title of our upcoming book is:
We have¬†another sweet surprise for you!!! To show how special and unique this book will be, we’ve created a¬†dedicated website¬†to provide you with always up-to-date information regarding the progress, pre-ordering, and release date. Also, there will be some awesomely sweet¬†free downloadable goodies¬†available to those who have purchased the book. I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback, they mean the world to me and help us improve. Here’s the site:¬†mARTshmallows. Hope you like it ūüôā

Pinching. Pinching. Still pinching myself and not waking up. Wow, this is really happening. It’s not a dream!!

I am jumping with excitement over here! After months and months of holding it in, I am thrilled to finally be able to tell you all that The Marshmallow Studio is being sponsored byKRAFT¬†Jet-Puffed marshmallows.¬†This is HUGE!!¬†Jet-Puffed being the #1 marshmallow manufacturer in the United States asked me to join their team?!?!? They sure did ūüôā Let me tell ya, it’s a beautiful feeling to know that the marshmallow brand I love and use the most actually admires what I create and think so highly of me as to bring me on board as their¬†“digital spokesperson”. I feel soo honored and blessed!!

I will keep you informed of what’s coming up so you don’t miss a thing.

What better way to make this announcement than with marshmallows? I wanted to make this announcement¬†extra special¬†so I ‘mallorized the JET-PUFFED logo. We used a 48″ X 36″ board, mini marshmallows, ¬†MallowBits and StackerMallows. My husband and I had actually had a pretty good time making this together!

WE’RE PUBLISHING A BOOK!!!

YES, you read right! ūüôā I am ecstatic to finally tell you all that we are working on our first book! What started off as just a crazy idea is now truly happening. Two years ago when I founded The Marshmallow Studio I thought people would just want to order my designs (or not even) then I started receiving endless wonderful emails from around the world requesting tutorials, videos, and classes. I had accidentally created a new¬†craze¬†and it became fuel for me to keep pushing the limits. My students, customers, fans and readers have inspired me to truly pursue this book venture and make it a reality.¬†My¬†goal¬†is to make a humble contribution to the world that could hopefully make an impact in someone’s life.

A little bit about the book… it will show you step-by-step, how to make¬†over 72 designs which most are¬†never-before-seen creations. The book will also contain tips, recipes and techniques that I have learned along the way. The pages will be filled with amazing photographs and all of my marshmallow and sweets decorating knowledge. On top of that, we are also working with an¬†amazing team¬†of talented, creative professionals to add a few “extra goodies” that will be exclusively available those who snag a copy.

We haven’t set a solid pre-order or release date yet but it won’t be too far out and I will be ¬†sure to let you know as soon as it’s scheduled. I plan on taking you along this¬†exciting journey with me by sharing some behind-the-scenes photos and stories through our¬†blog. I’m still pinching myself over here while jumping up and down with excitement and trying to calm the butterflies in my stomach.¬†I want to¬†THANK YOU¬†all for your love and support, it truly means the world to me and I hold it dear to my heart!¬†Let’s get this show on the road….

SAN DIEGO CAKE CLUB 29TH ANNUAL CAKE SHOW

What an experience….

Although I am not a cake decorator, I am a sugar artist so I believe it’s very important to participate in local cake clubs and network with my fellow artists. ¬†As you may already know from my previous posts, we are members of the California Cake Club (3 Cs) and the San Diego Cake Club (SDCC). Every year for the past 29 years, the SDCC has puts together a Cake Show Competition to benefit a charity and allow local artists to showcase their talents. This is the largest show of it’s kind in California.

OUR 1ST ARIZONA CLASS! 1/14/12 RECAP

While at Cake Camp 2011 in Las Vegas, we had lots of people express interest in learning how to make marshmallow pops like ours. Some were asking about classes, some about online tutorials, DVDs, books, magazines, etc. Unfortunately, we have not had a chance to complete all of the sweet projects we have going on. But we DO teach local and travel classes.

Two of the ladies that talked to me about coming out to teach at Arizona were Aurora from Lovely Little Cake Shop and Kim Crapps from Confection Connection. After working out all the details, the date was set and I was set to come out to teach our first travel class!
