A Divalicious Booth!!

This past Sunday we organized a Springtime Boutique with 25 vendors at the St. Joseph's Church Hall in Nipomo.  The boutique was a fundraiser for our MS Challenge Walk 2011 team, Wine Country Walkers.  It was very successful!  We will have to make a few changes for the next one to get a little more traffic, but all in all, I would have to say it was a great first time event!  This was also our first boutique as a vendor!!!!  That's right, Divalicious {Sweet Treats} made it's debut and the feedback was very positive!  Yay!  I made English Toffee (milk chocolate with almonds and dark chocolate with pecans), sugar cookies covered in fondant with a chocolate MS ribbon on them, peppermint patties to sell at the booth and German Chocolate Cake Truffles for samples.  If you like coconut, you will love these German Chocolate Cake Truffles!  Next time I am going to sprinkle coconut over the top instead of the little pearlized balls.  I had planned to this time but when I reached in for the coconut I realized that someone I forgot to buy it after I made all those wonderful coconut cupcakes. Argh!!   Christy made mini Mocha cupcakes and mini Tangerine cupcakes for samples as well that were Divalicious!!  I must say that I like mini cupcakes much better than the full size version.  The minis are bite size and you can try more than one without any guilt!!  Love that! 

So what's on the agenda for this week?
  •  Devil's Food Cake Truffles for a little girl's First Communion (Special request on her part!!)
  • Batman Sugar Cookies for a birthday party - Bam, Pow, and Bats comes to mind!
  • Cake Truffles and Chocolate Covered Oreos for the Teachers of St. Mary's of the Assumption School
  • Bar Pan Cookies for a FABULOUS friend who just had a beautiful little baby girl (I am taking her dinner as well but the cookies are her favorite so I am not sure she will even eat the dinner!!  :0)
Remember, life is short, eat dessert first!!
