Getting Ready for Wedding Expo

The WZID wedding expo is officially three days away and I am stressing big time. This event is my first wedding event so I am very nervous about how to prepare my booth and what to have with me.
If you have any tips, please email me at Check out my website and let me know what you think would be good for brides.

I have little bags filled with chocolate covered pretzels sprinkled with hearts, colored sugar, and drizzled with chocolate. I also have bags of peanut butter cups and molded chocolates and filled chocolates. And there are takeout containers of freshly baked cookies, as well as boxes with chocolate covered Oreos. And the real kicker is the chocolate heart box!

Come one, come all! Should be a fun event.

Holidays over...time for Wedding Expo!

After a busy holiday season and lots of corporate gifts, it's time to focus on the WZID Wedding Expo that's coming up a week from Sunday.
I have already begun the busy process of baking, frosting, and decorating hundreds of cupcakes for the elaborate cupcake tower that some lucky brides will destroy on their quest for buried prizes.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the cupcakes.

On top of the cupcake endeavor, I also have to prepare favors for the booth I'm getting at the expo.

Spread the word to all those newly-engaged girls to attend the expo at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, NH.

My husband's beloved Grammy always had chocolate almond bark on her coffee table. That's just one of the things he loves and remembers about her.

I'm discovering so many new and exciting ways to create chocolate bark.

I love taking dark and white chocolate and swirling them together. I also love layering them to get a pretty look when it's broken into pieces.

And coming up with flavor combinations is so fun: pecan and kosher salt, cranberry and pecan, peanut and raisin, candy cane and white chocolate, white chocolate and Oreo, and now milk chocolate and Oreos with chocolate filling.

Do you have any suggestions for me to try? If so, I'll give you a plug on the website and blog.

'Tis the season for cookies...although I have no qualms about baking and eating them year-round.

I tried calculating what I need to make over the next four weeks for customers and events, and I was scared at the math. I guess I better get to the store to get more eggs, flour, and sugar, since I have about 75 batches to make. Yes, that's 75 batches!

So, let's do some arithmetic. If a batch of cookies uses 2 eggs, and 2 times 75 equals 150, and there are 18 eggs in each package I buy...I need to buy 8.33 packages of eggs. Will that even fit in my fridge?

Anyway, here are some shots of today's work. Enjoy! And I hope to hear from you with your very own cookie order...might as well make it 80 or 100 at this point.

Overwhelmed, in a good way

Wow, I can't believe it. I have already attended three holiday shopping events and now I am getting ready to fill lots of orders and get prepared for the WZID wedding expo.
This is my first holiday season in business and I had a lot of expectations. Some have been met, and some have not. But I'm sticking with this thing because I love it and am committed...and I have current orders to fill and will make lots of enemies if I quit now.
WZID is an awesome radio station. If you don't live in NH, you can listen online. And my friend Jen is a big shot there and she is super supportive and really great at giving me opportunities for exposure and growth. Like the wedding expo. I'm getting a booth with a friend of mine who sells invitations, so that reduces the cost for both of us. And it's great that we can direct interested brides to the other's table.
In addition to creating a eye-catching tablescape for the expo, I am also providing the station with 300 cupcakes...yes, I said 300. The cupcakes will be on display for select brides to maul and mutilate while searching for a hidden wedding ring. Those 300 cupcakes will get me key radio advertising, so it's a good trade...but lots and lots and lots of work.
Oh, and before the wedding expo, I am providing the station with their corporate gifts this year. Yeah me! That means my chocolates and cookies will get in the hands of lots of local businesses who advertise with the radio station (and hopefully need corporate gifts of their own in the future). But it's a lot of work and it's due really soon.
So, I guess all of this new business means I probably won't be tending to this blog as much as I want.
But I hope you'll follow me on twitter and keep checking my website for updating information about products and events.
