The official Scootabaker logo was finally complete and ready to be premiered at the event, thanks to our illustrator friend, Bob Thomson, who also illustrated Michael's children's book series, Mike and the Bike.
At the insistence of the event coordinators, I prepared Lemon Coconut Bars, Raspberry Ganache Tartlets, and Pecan Pie Bites. It felt like we were baking for months on end. The kitchen smelled of fresh pastry dough all the days long, and the crispness of the zested lemons enveloped our every senses. Heavenly indeed.
The venue, Hollywood's Playhouse, was blaring with color and decadence. The dessert assortment was a supreme addition to the already vibrant landscape. And you know this girl can't go without telling you what she donned... I was prancin' around sharing my desserts with guests in my favorite seafoam green chiffon dress and kickass Chloé wedges. Black? Forget it.
And it was the most bizarre thing cause I was about to throw back my ump-teenth cocktail, and then the night's events drew to a close. Had I been buzzin' through the crowds that long that 6 hours had passed?
