Last Thursday I had the privilege to attend and present some of my cake and cookie pops at the Kentucky Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) meeting. It was hosted by two amazing professionals in the Kentucky wedding industry, Mackenzie Spalding of One Fine Day and Melanie Mauer of Melanie Mauer Photography.
When I received the e-mail from Mackenzie, inviting me to bring my treats to the meeting, I was over the moon! Since cloudy winter days marked February, I thought I would try to bring some sunshine with me to the event. I came with a garden of cake and cookie pops to get everyone in the mood for sunshine and warmer weather. I had a marvelous time coming up with these sunny little confections and I hope everyone enjoyed them. My children certainly did!
Martine and Jim Holzmen of Martine’s Pastries also brought many of their amazing pastries and I absolutely fell in love with their macaroons. They were so delicious and what amazing colors! They made me want to go home and design invitations to an ice cream social, just so I could serve some at the party. Martine’s is the bakery who makes our cake pops possible and she and her delightful staff have been such a joy to work with! I highly recommend them and I hope to delight you with our unique cake pop designs for your wedding day event or party.
The event was in itself, breathtaking. It was like attending a mini-wedding. The Bodley Bullock House, is of course an exquisite piece of Lexington history and was a perfect venue for the meeting. Dupree Catering catered the event and the food was absolutely fabulous! I would highly recommend them if you are on the hunt for a top-drawer caterer. The stunning floral arrangements were compliments of John with Best of Flowers and Purdon’s provided the gorgeous chivari chairs.
The topic of the evening was “Creating a Well Crafted Business” and the speaker was the lovely Melanie Mauer, who did an outstanding job. I was very inspired by her talk about a building a business that enriches your life. Her materials and ideas on organization and goal setting have already been helpful to me as I start my new venture. If you haven’t met Melanie, she is quite possibly the nicest person I have ever met and so full of joy! On top of that she is one of the best photographers in Lexington. I love her work, just divine! She was so sweet to photograph my cake and cookie pops at the event and when she sent them to me I had butterflies! She made my display look like it was shot for the cover of Martha Stewart Living. Amazing, amazing work! I am so grateful to her for sharing these with me and allowing me to share them with you.
Enjoy the sunshine and the coming of spring!
