Sweet Cheeks Turns 4 – Part 1!

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

This March Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. turned 4 years old as a tiny San Diego corporation…yippee!
We enjoyed an incredibly memorable birthday party – yet again – with the help of amazing family & friends in the industry. Thank you all for joining us in celebration! Some memories from the Starlight Photo Booth to start…

Givin’ it love…

While our finest photos were shot by local wedding photographer Heidi-O-Photo, which will soon be posted, here are some of the silly shots self-timed by many guests in the Starlight Photo Booth! Thanks to Andy & Tim, we caught some people in some pretty typical moments…

These Guys ROCK IT with Starlight Photo Booth!

Shooting the Cheeks!

Showing off our new duds…courtesy of McGuire Photography

Check out our fun on the jungle gym and more on Maryanne’s blog post:
“Great Photographs of the Fantastic Women of Sweet Cheeks…”

What a great afternoon with Maryanne McGuire of McGuire Photography (www.maryannephoto.com) we had! Fellow East Coaster from Brooklyn, Maryanne always has a funny quip or chuckle to share…truly one of the most positive and happy people we’ve encountered in our time here! Love her!

All the Cheeks were present and accounted for…donning our favorite new yoga pants and hoodies – all available on our online store again soon!

Grantville Park is a sleepy little San Diego neighborhood spot for kids (and obviously bakers and cake designers now!) down the road from our kitchen, the perfect place to play and make our human pyramids… Are we getting old, or is that a LOT harder (or are the upper tiers heavier?) than it felt as kids?

Regal Cheeks at the US Grant

Liz Beck & Sweet Cheeks at US Grant

Edible British Albums!

Wow, what a stunning display of creativity and regal elegance at the US Grant Hotel this past week for their annual wedding show! It truly was “A Royal Affair” with radiant hues of silver & gold, blues, and jewels tones.

We teamed up with 3 different booths. Our main focus was on the British Royal Family theme, where we worked with incredible talent in vendors:
* coordinated by Liz Beck www.lizbeckevents.com
* beautiful florals by Dawn Stone www.embellishmint.com
* contemporary seating by www.koolpartyrentals.com
* vintage seating by Hire Elegance
* plateware and silver pieces from various San Diego vintage shops (found by the resourceful Liz Beck, of course)
* photos by Braja Mandala www.mandalaweddings.com & Gene Higa

Even though we couldn’t get Liz to wear the giant red velvet hat with the leopard skin trim, we still felt it was a pretty special setting…
