Our whimsical June Tasting

We're keeping busy here at Living the Sweet Life and what better way to start off June than with our monthly complimentary tasting! Last Thursday we hosted a creative & whimsical array of tasty treats - cake pops, mini apple pies on a stick and some coconut & chocolate cupcakes...mmm! Check out our pictures to get an idea of what a dessert bar could look like!

Each month the shoppe hosts a complimentary tasting for brides, grooms, family members and those working in the industry. Join us for an upcoming tasting - each month is a different theme - look out for pies in July - a decadent spread of lemon, cherry and blueberry pies.

If you're interested in attending an upcoming tasting, stop on by or give us a call to reserve your spot! We'd love to see you.

Celebrate Dad with some sweet treats!

Father's Day is upon us this coming Sunday, June 19th...so don't forget to treat the dads in your life to something special. Living the Sweet Life will be making some extra goodies to treat dad - in addition to all of our regular sweets, we'll have mound balls and golf themed shortbread cookies - yum!

Just to give you a headstart on ideas - think about stopping in/ordering an assorted box of cookies, a tasty Saturday cinnamon roll, a combination of desserts (brownies, pecan caramel bars, cupcakes, etc). We'll have lots of treats to choose from, so you can find the perfect combination of sweets for dad.

And don't forget, since we're closed on Sunday, you'll have to stop in before then :)
