I was fortunate enough to have attended the International Baking Industry Exposition a couple of days ago. IBIE is North America’s largest, most comprehensive trade event. It’s held every three years at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. It attracts more than 20,000 baking professionals from every segment of the grain-based market from all around the world. I am already counting down the days until the next event in 2016!!

THE PARTY WITH AMY LOCURTO

Rainbow-Butterfly-pops-The Marshmallow Studio

A few weeks ago, you guys might remember me talking about a super cool secret project I was making pops for. I shared a few sneak peek photos on my Instagram profile. Then a couple of weeks ago I was able to share what the big mystery was all about and who and what they were for.

I had made marshmallow flowers and butterflies to match Amy Locurto’s new Rainbow Party Collection from her new line with Pebbles, Inc.  She was having a booth at the 2013 Craft and Hobby Association Winter Tradeshow and wanted to display them in her booth along her beautiful new bright paper goods. Of course I was honored she asked me and jumped right into this opportunity. It’s not everyday someone you totally admire asks you for something.

Here are a few screen shots I saved from other’s posts:

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.
