Baby Showers and Reunions... June kicked off with a big bang! Let's see what the rest of summer brings!
Baby Elijah Hyde - Coming soon!
I just love welcoming new life into the world. And we were honored with the opportunity to be there in spirit at the shower to welcome Baby Elijah Nolan into the world. My best friend from college is going to be an auntie for the first time any day now. She told me that her baby sister wanted S'Moore Gifts to be at the shower and I was more than overjoyed to be apart of the celebration. The expectant mother wanted Red Velvet cheesecake brownies for herself and I created custom sugar cookies for her guests. Some looked like baby buttons, others looked like giraffe spots since she wanted a jungle type theme and others had the letter "E" for his name. Above you can read that someone else enjoyed the brownies as well. I'm so happy that my contribution to their welcoming party was enjoyed and I look forward to visiting Mississippi and meeting my nephew soon.
Lights, Camera, Action: Remix!
Last weekend I celebrated my 10 year class reunion from Cordova High in Rancho Cordova. In high school I was the Senior Class president - I had a lot of school spirit. Part of why I chose to study Hotel and Restaurant Management in college was due to my experience in Student Government while in high school. I enjoyed planning events and I thrived off being apart of the details in creating someone's memories. I had good people around me back then so when it came time to start planning for our 10 year reunion, I reached out to some old friends. After months of deciding where we would go, what we would do... June 15, 2013 finally was here. Our theme was Lights, Camera, Action: This is the Remix! based on Mr.Cheeks hit song from 2002. We took it a step further and decorated our tables with movie posters from our four years (Remember the Titans, Not Another Teen Movie, Drumline, American Wedding) and I created name badges that were *All Access* passes to our VIP event. In addition to the chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal raisin shown here, we had sugar cookies and red velvet cupcakes. At the end of the night we had so much stuff left over, we sent all of our classmates home with as many treats that they wanted and I still came home with an abundance of desserts. I will admit, I overdid it, but I wanted to be sure that we had enough. I'd say that it worked out - my classmates and I partied like we were teens again and everyone had a good time. The picture above is of my friend Samantha and I. She made a beeline to the dessert table as soon as she came in and we talked. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing my classmates in October for the 50th Homecoming! Go, Lancers, Go! Lancers 2003!
We've been really busy in the kitchen cooking up some delicious treats for you to enjoy. Keep reading!
Last month I had an opportunity to take the Wilton Method Cake Decorating Class and I am so pleased with the investment I made. I learned new techniques and found my creativity challenged,so with this new knowledge that means greater options for you to treat yourself to! Here's a deluxe version of our Tuxedo cupcake - it has a strawberry filling!
Last month we introduced a new treat to the S'Moore Gifts menu, the Banana Pudding cookie and June won't disappoint either because we're unveiling the Strawberry Blondie. If you're not familiar with the blondie, it's quite similar to a brownie, except there is an abundance of brown sugar in place of cocoa.
