Upcoming Events – Fall 2011

Holiday cupcake mosaic

Fall is here! (maybe) and we are participating in quite a few events this season. So far we’ve been accepted into:

OC Chocolate Festival – Nov 4 & 5

This festival is all about eating chocolate and drinking wines and coffees. Are you in? You must buy a ticket to attend but that ticket includes lots of free samples. We are going to be preparing some special treats just for this event, stuff we haven’t done before. It’s going to be really fun! There are two types of ticket packages:

GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS are $25 and are good for admission to the O.C. Chocolate Festival on your choice of Friday orSaturday, when you will receive eight chocolate samplings and three wine tastings.  General browsing, holiday gift shopping and entertainment are all included in the ticket price. Additional sampling tickets will be available at the event.

VIP PARTY TICKETS are for Friday night, Nov. 4, or Saturday night, Nov. 5.  The nights require separate tickets. Anyone can purchase a ticket to this event.  The party is in one of the separate expo rooms at the chocolate festival. Your ticket includes heavy hors d’oeurves, wine samplings, plenty of chocolate and live jazz.  Great night to come with special friends. VIP tickets are $50 per person per night.

Buy your tickets here.

San Diego Holiday Hit List – Dec 4

The Holiday Hit List is an annual event that is organized and hosted by the San Diego North Park Craft Mafia.  It is a holiday social and shopping experience – and it’s a FREE, all ages event.  You can stop by, listen to some music, and get your holiday shopping done in one place!  Doesn’t that sound great?

Free to attend!

Renegade LA Holiday Craft Fair – Dec 10 & 11

The 2nd Annual Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Market in Los Angeles returns to Los Angeles State Park on December 10 + 11, from 10am – 5pm, to supply all your handmade holiday shopping needs! Always free-to-attend and featuring over 200 artists, shoppers are sure to find something for everybody on their lists or can craft a special gift themselves at one of our terrific hands-on crafting workshops! A handful of LA’s best independent food trucks will be on site serving up delicious dishes and our bar will have many holiday libations!

Free to attend!

We are still waiting to hear back if we got into Patchwork Festival and we’ll report back when we (hopefully) do!

You can stay up-to-date on where to find us by liking our Facebook page. You can add the events to your calendar here.

Barnyard cupcake tower for a 2nd birthday

Barnyard cupcake tower

We were hired to put together a barnyard or farm theme cupcake tower for a cute little boy turning 2. I hope we didn’t disappoint! These were so fun to make! I loved making the animal pieces and then the animal sounds. I thought that would be perfect for a 2 yr old! We topped the tower with a custom cake with a barn and some clouds and grass. I love when it all comes together so well!

Dessert table for Daniel Tosh, Live Nation and crew

Tosh on Ice Dessert Table

A month ago, I was hired to put together a dessert table to celebrate the run of Tosh On Ice 2011 tour at Honda Center. I am a fan of Daniel and his show Tosh.O. Coincidentally I was just at the season finale taping of Tosh.O a few weeks prior up there in Culver City. It was really neat to see it from a live audiences perspective and also get to see the host (Daniel) in real life and how it really is vs how he is on tv.

The Invitation Matched the Cake

Bear smash cake

We had one heck of a busy weekend! We were very lucky to be asked to do a cupcake tower for Hearts & Laserbeams (the person responsible for the awesome graphics on my site!) son’s first birthday. Steph designed his first birthday invitations herself and I wanted to match his smash cake with the one on the invite.

Here is the smash cake vs little bear on the invite:

Hot Pink Kitty


One of the orders we had this week was for a Hello Kitty birthday party at Pretend City. Hot pink frosting was the request along with matching hot pink glittery bows. All hand cut decorations. Can someone tell me where I can buy a small hello kitty cutter??
