A Food Network Birthday Party!

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

Happy Birthday, Gale Gand, from Sweet Cheeks Baking Co!

One of FOOD Network’s finest pastry chefs and James Beard Award Winning Chef celebrated her birthday during this year’s outstanding San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival – specifically during the first annual ONE WORLD BEEF – “Celebrate the Chef” Event that the festival showcased. The party lasted all day, located at the Del Mar Racetrack, a fun setting for both festival goers and Birthday Girls!

Top chefs showed off their delicious beef recipes, pairing it with anything from bacon to marmalade, habanero to Uni (sea urchin, my favorite little delicacy).  Our own Top Chefs from the Sweet Cheeks Baking Kitchen added in Gale’s birthday cake to WOW the masses of taste-frenzied Foodies.  Um, wait a second… Are we talking Wagyu beef AND Sweet Cheeks cake in one setting??? “YES, PLEASE!”

Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. was asked to create a “simple” Day At The Races-inspired cake for Gale to cut. We enjoyed every moment of the design, execution, and even delivery! Our fabulous Michael Banag was on site to share with her and capture a minute of laughs.

Gale’s surprise & excitement about her cake made our day!!!!

Tickled – cute!

Given the Wine Festival setting and the unique client, we selected our Vanilla Bean Sour Cream Cake, soaked it with Gewurztraminer Wine, and filled it with both Slow-Cooked Fudge and Salted Caramel Butter Cream, frosted in Classic Italian Butter Cream…holy deliciousness!!!
