{RECAP} EVENT-SOLUTIONS IDEA FACTORY / CATERSOURCE 2012 LAS VEGAS

Last week I attended the Event-Solutions Idea Factory / Catersource Tradeshow 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada. I had a blast, learned a lot and meet some really cool people. I loved the energy in the air and the creativity As some of you may already know, I have two degrees in event management and worked many years in this field. One of my biggest passions are events and all aspects of design. Every year I look forward to this show because there are soo many new things to see and learn about, not to mention the amazing tablescapes designed by some the country’s top event designers. This was my fourth time attending the show and every year it seems to keep getting bigger and better. I will be back again next year!

OPERATION SHOWER – SUNSHINE SAFARI FLAMINGOS

 This is a way over-due post but one that I really wanted to write and share with all of you.

As some of you may already know, we have had the opportunity twice now to design and donate custom marshmallow pops for the beautiful organization Operation Shower.  There are soo many reasons why I feel dearly toward this organization to name them all, I just hope to be able to continue donating our products and time whenever possible. You too can get involved by donating here or through their Amazon wishlist. After learning that they were hosting the January shower in San Diego, I immediately volunteered to provide pops and also to come help set up for the event. I was stoked to finally meet the wonderful team behind this organization and the 11 talented designers that were being involved.

Here’s the cherry on top of my ice cream sundae… I got to make new friends, hang out with a fabulous group of ladies, and I even heard our Flamingo Marshmallow Pops were a favorite on the sweets table with the future-mommas!

I can pretty much go on and on about my amazing experience but I’ll let the photos do most of the talking…. [Read more…]

MEETING BAKERELLA!

Oh yeah…. I was mega super excited! It was finally time to meet…

Although I do not bake cakes, decorate cookies, frost cupcakes or roll cake pops, I sure eat them LOL.

No seriously, I’m a huge fan of Bakerella because she has motivated me to become a better blogger and more creative sweets decorator. She has also showed me that it’s okay to teach people how to do what you do.

3 C’S DEMO AT ABC CAKES ON 10/8/11

I got something cool to share with you guys 🙂

A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to be invited to do a demonstration at ABC Cakes Shoppe and Bakery in Orange, CA last Saturday, 10/8/11 for the California Cake Club Fall Quarterly Meeting. Although I’ve been teaching for a year now, something about doing a demonstration in front of sugar art professionals made me a little nervous. Boy, am I glad I accepted the offer and came out to Orange, California because I found a gem…

   

The store is located in a cute little strip mall off a main avenue, with an ample parking, and great signage so you can’t miss it. I was welcomed by this big o’ Gingerbread Man Baker in the window.

    

They when I walked in…… “WOW! This place is HUGE”, I said out loud LOL [Read more…]
