What a night Monday was!
At the Geffen Playhouse's 10th Anniversary Gala, photos were a no-no, however, they did allow us to snap a shot of the cake in it's spot (we opted not to show the two security guards on either side.)

The show was intimate audience was enthralled by behind-the-scenes stories of the theater interspersed with song and skits. Imagine watching on stage: Dick Van Dye, Carol Burnett, Bruce Villanch, Dana Delaney, Hellen Mirren, Brendan Frasier, Nia Vardelos, Sean Hayes, Kristen Chenowith, Ray Romano, Christine Lahti, Martin Short, Mary Steenbergen & Ted Danson along with MC Gil Cates celebrating theater, Les Moonves & Rita Wilson.
The highlight for me was when Dick Van Dyke closed the show with highlights from Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Bye Bye Birdy! Wow!

The cake was the talk of the room...we heard "thats a cake!" and "I don't believe it" and "lets go see!" over and over throughout the cocktail party. 500 of our fabulous Geffen-logo'd cupcakes were tray-passed along with shot glasses of iced-cold milk (a chocolate tasting was going on at the same time) and there were so many beautiful people and celebs in house that you know the paparazzi were swarming outside (yes, there was a red carpet~!)

Good times!
Just the day before we had participated in yet another bridal showcase...Here Come the Brides event at the Embassy Suites in Glendale. The hotel was surprisingly lovely, with a gorgeous water element and really great decor in their ladies lounge. We give them snaps all around. The engaged gals could not have been nicer, and our fellow vendors were equally sweet. We shared our fresh cake slices with them all ('cause that's how we roll!)

Back at the bakery life went on, business as usual.

Here are a couple of cakes we made for some special people!
