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.

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 :)

Royal Wedding Fever!

The happy couple is finally tying the knot! And in celebration of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton's happy union, we at Living the Sweet Life will have some special treats to make you feel like royalty too.

Stop in on Friday and grab a scone or a couple petit fours to enjoy with your afternoon tea. If you are not familiar with petit fours, they are basically a dainty little cake glazed in fondant or chocolate. We'll be taking orders for them as well, if you would like to share with friends on the special day! Don't forget, we have a variety of Tea Spot teas to enjoy as well.

And of course we will have all our regular goodies, so feel free to grab some cookies, brownies, pecan caramel bars, cupcakes, and more!


Order Treats for an Eggstra Special Easter and Passover.

Every Easter I would wake up to a house filled with Easter eggs and GAME ON... it didn't matter that my sister was significantly younger than I, I was ready to compete in the hunt. I still am known to host a neighborhood Egg Hunt and it is just as fun as always. After the hunt I get together with family and friends for a fabulous Easter brunch or dinner. These are some of my favorite treats to serve and I hope they become yours.

Birthday Party a Success!

Lane Cutler's party for her daughter's first birthday was a smashing success! We were so honored to be a part of the party and to make some savory treats. The beautiful photos were taken by Andrea Flanagan and the birthday girl could not have been cuter. The menu included mini quiches, gourgeres, moroccan chicken puff pastry trianges and a darling smash cake. Here is too a fabulous year for the Cutler family!

Hot Dog!

Living the Sweet Life is more than just a bakery: We're a total sweet shoppe! We just received an order of retro candy for our candy bar, and the jars are now overflowing with all kinds of goodies. Some of the new arrivals include Hot Dog gum (remember those??? They're totally cute!), Good & Fruity (the name says it all), Candy Buttons (just pop 'em off the paper and eat), Candy Necklaces (all girls love these!), LemonHeads (a classic favorite), Pop Rocks (the ultimate fizzy sensation for your taste buds!) and adorable Haribo gummy frogs (that beg to leap into your mouth!). Some of these sweets are just too cute to eat, but we know that once you come in and grab a baggie full, you'll travel back to the days when you were a kid spilling all of your pennies on the candy counter to buy as many goodies as you could get! Who knew reminiscing could be so sweet?
