The Festival of Chocolate Experience!

We are officially "Award Winning!" The two ribbons here were for "Runner Up" in the Chocolate Cupcake and Chocolate Brownie Categories!! The competition had so many fantastic bakers, I was so honored to receive recognition!
The event was hosted by Indigo Creative Productions, and was first class all the way! They had demonstrations by chocolatiers in which they showed the audience variuos techniques for creating chocolate masterpeices. The judges included with NBA player Bo Outlaw of the Orlando Magic, Robyn Austin of 103.1 WLOQ (love her!), many local news anchors, Chef David Ramirez (2009 Team USA Pastry Captain), and MANY other talented and decorated pastry chefs including the Executive Pastry Chef of Universal Orlando, Mike Harman, who said that my Tiramisu buttercream was one of the best he has ever had!!! My feet haven't hit the floor since :)
This weeked was so amazing, and the best part was meeting the guests and other vendors! It was an inspiration to receive so many return clients to our booth, and hear so many kind words about our product. There is so much effort that goes into making sure every cupcake is perfect (even when you are making 1,400 of them) and its wonderful to see, hear and feel the fruits of our labor. Thank you!
