Sugar Plums, Macarons, Cupcakes...Oh My!

One of Tartelette's Gorgeous Macarons!

Good Morning, Darlings!

As this is the time of year when sugar plums are dancing in your head, I would like to let you in on a super cool event happening on Saturday, January 16. It is being organized by super fab Shameeka of The Broke Socialite, who has just been invited (along with my other buddies, Laura at The Weary Publicist and my darling Tami at Running With Tweezers) to attend the Martha Stewart Show in NYC on Bloggers!! I am so excited for them and cannot wait to hear every detail when they return. Here are the details on this super fabulous, super exclusive event:

The Broke Socialite has embarked upon the creation of a unique series of experiences in Atlanta. The first will be held on January 16, 2010 and is entitled “Sugar Coma”. In essence, it is a tour of local bakeries, cupcakeries and restaurants that serve sweets, which allows those with a hankering for all things sweet to be chauffeured on a tour of some of the city’s finest establishments. On the flip side, it’s a great opportunity for a business or chef to market their offerings and share “test kitchen”/new recipes with feedback that will be channeled through the waves of social media. I am looking forward to Sugar Coma being a successful event and trust that it will set a precedent for those that will follow in the series.

Helen McSweeney, a French pastry chef out of Charleston, has come on board as our “Sugar Mama” (read: keynote) and she will discuss her experiences as a blogger, foodie, pastry chef and will facilitate Q&A between stops on the trip. This is a tremendous coup! Through her blog, Tartelette, Helen teases us with the yummy desserts that she chefs up and photographs. She has also been nominated among the 50 Best Food Bloggers In The World. I know…awesome, right?!

Tickets are $40, Cadillac is the transportation sponsor (!!), and you get to eat sweets all day – it’s required!You can get all the details at the Broke Socialite’s site.

Will I be there? You bet your sweet cupcake, I will! Come out and lets get chauffered around sampling sweets.

You deserve it!
