Mothers Day Tea

I know this is really late, but I wanted to share some of the things we did at our Mothers Day Tea in Palm Springs. Along with over 200 women and children, Desert Chapel creates two teas a year. One for Christmas and one for Mothers Day. Each table is decorated differently depending on the theme. This year it was a French Bistro. My friend Cindy decorated the table and I made the party favors. Below is also a picture of my daughter and myself at our very own bistro table that was used as a prop.

The evening ended up with wonderful food including our vanilla bean cupcakes filled with strawberry and buttercream along with a cute presentation put on by Desert Chapel.

I hope you had a wonderful Mothers Day and next week is graduations. We will have some fun cupcakes for your grad.

 

 

 

 

Cupcake Tasting in Palm Springs has a successful turnout.

On Saturday, April 14th, we did a wine and cupcake pairing at Desert Wines and Spirits.  Desert Wines does a weekly tasting and chooses 6 different wines based on the theme or supplier that they are focusing on. Yesterday we had three wines that went with our vanilla bean and strawberry cupcake and three that went with our espresso cupcake.

 

Costa,  from Desert Wines and Spirits had 6 wines on hand to taste that evening.

2008 Vinehill Winery Chardonnay, Clements Ridge Vineyard.

2009 Opolo Vineyards Viognier, Central Coast.

Cupcake sampling at Miramonte Resort

I am uploading my pictures from our Cupcake Sampling at the Miramonte Resort while watching the Oscars. I haven’t watched them in years, but I put it on my calendar and of course I am multi tasking and getting some work done. Last week I showed you some pictures leading up to this event.

Last Thursday, I had the privilege of bringing some of my samples to the Professional Business Alliance’s 2nd annual business expo. There were over 25 vendors that are members of the organization and 4 additional vendors they invited in, including, Olive A Sudden, Savory Spice Company, Brandini Toffee and Candiland Dessert Company .   It was a 4 hour event and they had over 200 people come through the doors.

Cupcake Display Stand

My exhibit had Gluten Free Raspberry cupcakes and Red Velvet cupcakes along with Red Velvet cheesecake brownies.  Then I had some additional treats for display.  I really enjoyed meeting the members of this group and thank Margaret Hines for inviting me.

They offered hors d’oeuvres and beverages to the invitation only event. To get more information on this networking group go to Professional Business Alliance
