I have been away for most of February enjoying the first vacation I’ve taken in almost eight years.  Bridal season is back in full force so it’s back to work on the latest creations for my 2009 brides.  May is one of the busiest months for weddings, however, I am going to make some time to participate in the Albert Uster Sweet Charity event for the first time this year.  The event will be held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, DC on May 11th from 6 to 9pm.  The benefit helps fund ‘The Heart of America Foundation’s Books From The Heart’ program.   There will be a fashion show where models are draped in some form of chocolate and other treats as the ‘fabrics’ should be edible, as well as a silent auction.  Best of all, some of the area’s top chefs will be participating, each showcasing their delicious  creations for guests to sample.  Clara’s Designer Cakes is proud to announce our participation in this event.  I’m not sure what we’ll be serving as of yet, but you can bet it will be delicious and decadent!  We will be showcasing our latest couture cake designs and there will be plenty of delicious cake filled with our signature buttercream flavors.   Hope to see you there!
