Sweet Somethings...

Today's event was a resounding success...the Same Sex in the City Wedding Extravaganza was the place to be, with top wedding vendors and fabulous guests (including some major celebrity sightings!)

Our modest booth was transformed into a shimmery winter wonderland, thanks to a little help from a friend who was sweet enough to "prop" us up. Her tchotchke-accents truly made our table the belle of the ball.

The whimsically lustrous cake that we brought in to feature was covered with pearl-ized butter cream balls (completely edible) and were set off perfectly by the baby pink, brushed white, mirrored silver and other shiny balls held beautifully in antiqued small urns. This is a great way to set your own wedding cake table; a different look for a fantastic photo!

Here are some more views of our display...

Our fanned out brochures were soon replaced by fresh slices of wedding cake. We brought two full sheets with us for the show; one white, one chocolate (both with white icing, delicate borders and center clustered floral.) With 200 servings of cake at our fingertips, we managed to pass out just about every bit of delicious cake to the steady flow of people.

By the time the show was over, we warmly shared the remaining slices with the hard working show staff, who we had noticed were espying our booth with a hungry eye throughout the day.

We're grateful to the many interviewers who took the time and interest to learn about Hansen's Cakes history and extraordinary cake legacy.

Here is one of our favorite Same Sex in the City Celebrity attendees...Princess Diaries' Heather Mazzarino and her lovely fiance popped over to rehearse the "Feeding of the Cake" ceremony for their upcoming nuptials.
We look forward to meeting up with these ladies-in-love very soon!
