Gone are the days of traditional birthday cakes and wedding cakes from a box and frosting from a can.
Today, over the top cakes and cupcakes are king!
I, myself, become weak at the knees when someone udders 'chocolate chambord with raspberry' or 'chocolate ganache with caramel filling.' I'm a sucker for sweets, especially if they are small and pretty!
Bite sized tasty treats have become so popular, I have started serving them at nearly every event I host!
One of the bridal couples I am currently working with decided on cupcakes for their wedding. I recommended my local favorite,
Play Cake Bakers. This couple couldn't decide on just one flavor, as Jen makes the most amazing cupcakes even MORE amazing!
The couple narrowed down their dessert menu to 3 spectacular fall flavors: pumpkin spiced latte, chocolate stout with bacon crumbles, and apple pie. Mmm.... that sounds like Fall to me! Their guests are sure to remember the dessert portion of the evening!
If you are planning an event in the near future... don't hesitate to jump on the cupcake bandwagon. This trend has been around for a while, but who knows how long of a shelf life it will have. Just be sure to do a taste test before serving to guests. You may have to taste 2 or 3... just to be sure they are good. You have my approval!
I am proud to be a participating vendor in this AMAZING sale!
Cherry Lime Boutique in Loveland, CO has figured out how to make a community boutique simply thrive! They rented a space in a building with tons of drive-by traffic, so their visibility is great, but historically the businesses in this building have struggled. Somehow Alyssa and Michelle (store owners) have come up with an amazing concept, and have given new life to not only the building they rent from, but to the community in general.
No matter what your crafting skill, Cherry Lime Boutique will sell it. No more buying my birthday and holiday gifts at Target... I'd rather buy from local artisans and crafters! Stop by their store at 402 E. Eisenhower in Loveland.
This Saturday, Cherry Lime Boutique is hosting their annual "Christmas in July Sale" at the Fort Collins Hilton. This event is so large, that we will take up 2 huge ballrooms, and the entry way! Over 50 vendors are participating.
If you are smart, you'll think about getting a head start on your Christmas shopping, and even purchase some birthday, shower or wedding gifts for the upcoming events in your life.
Shopping local feels oh, so good. And who doesn't love an original gift with a story behind it? Come find that gift and plenty of stories at the Hilton in Fort Collins this Saturday.
Place: Fort Collins Hilton, 425 W. Prospect Rd.
Date: July 28th 2012
