Happy Birthday, Sweet Cheeks Baking Company! This past March marked the 6th birthday of this special woman-owned business. It seems like just yesterday that they opened their doors and began offering savory desserts and treats to the people and brides and grooms of San Diego!
So, like any 6 year old, Sweet Cheeks had a party, and this birthday brought out some great industry colleagues, family, and local & long distance friends for a wonderful evening! Approximately 300 people attended the modest festivities, and some brought with them some special favors and snacks. For example, Joes on the Nose, fellow Weddings of Distinction vendor and dear friend, brought caffeine (coffee + espresso), so needless to say, he was a hit.
Then, San Diego wedding coordinator, Carmin Cermak, of Carmin Design, also a Weddings of Distinction vendor, helped style the food and decorate the space. The theme was 1950s – 1960s Americana, with many hints of Norman Rockwell art inspiration. So in fashion with the theme, the wonderful Sweet Cheeks staff, with the help of San Diego caterers and Weddings of Distinction vendor, Continental Catering, created snacks and treats, such as:
Root Beer Cupcakes | Hamburger Cupcakes | Parmesan Savory Shortbread Cookie “Fries” | Chocolate-Caramel Apples on a Stick | Mini Pop Tarts | Flourless Chocolate Cake | Gluten-Free Red Velvet | and Vanilla Sour Cream and Slow-Cooked Fudge Birthday Cake
Besides being Sweet Cheeks birthday, it happened to also be Carmin’s, so the celebrations were shared. Yet, these birthday parties did not just include food. Music was provided by Tim Altbaum Production, a photo-booth provided by Starlight Photo Booth, (yet another also a Weddings of Distinction vendor!), and event photography by McGuire Photography.
It was a great evening all around. We talked; we ate; we celebrated. If only every evening could be like that!
