The Cats Meow! 9 Years, 9 Lives + Some Crazy Cat Ladies

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

Sweet Cheeks’ Birthday parties are well known for FUN, YUM, and a little bit o’ CRAZY!  This year, as we celebrated 9 years in business, we chose the “9 Lives” theme of…yup, CATS.

About 350 people showed up – some in ears & tails, others with their own stuffed animals, most just to have a great time & taste AMAZING DESSERTS in cat-inspired style!  From kitty litter cakes to Grumpy Cat Cake, cakes to make the Cake Boss sigh… Gluten Free Desserts to funny edible cat hair balls (coconut, that is)…people were stealing the to-go boxes once again!!!

Donating deliciousness…

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

 

Recently, we helped with a small donation to an important fundraiser benefitting Casa de Amparo – An organization that assists neglected and mistreated children.  The kids in the organization are all kids who need a little extra attention in their lives, and we greatly appreciate our friend (and former Weddings of Distinction member) Tiffany Arnaldo for organizing a super special day/fundraiser called the “Day of Beauty.”
The intent of the day was for all the kids to feel pampered, to feel as though there were at a spa!  The day was not just about providing the kids with beauty products but more so about making them feel special.  There were thirteen boys and girls, ranging in age from 9-18.
Thanks to generous donations from local businesses in San Diego, this day was a rousing success.  Over $800 was raised, and ll the boys and girls received amazing gift bags with personalized hair and skin care items and well as providing the home with a flat iron, curling rod, blow dryer and hair trimmer (for the young men).
We at Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. donated various cookie platters to keeps the kids’ bellies full, and while it seemed small to us, the kids were so happy.  That makes our job: happiness!

 

Local San Diego Businesses Involved:
Jarrod Harm, Owner of Detour Salon: Donated a Stylist, Jo, as well as hair care products & friendship bracelets
Clarissa Champlain, Hair Stylist Extraordinaire
Leah Nelson, Mary Kay Sales Director: Makeup products & more
Karen Lee, Makeup Artist
Lois Mathews Design: Bouquets of Sunflowers
Pride Socks: Retro knee socks

We love helping our clients plan for their wedding, so when they’re wedding is especially unique and incorporates their culture, we get even more excited to cater to their wishes.  This was exactly the case for a recent Indian wedding of ours.  For this special couple, we made a cake with a traditional Mendhi (Indian) design in red icing on fondant.  The flavor: a delicious citrus cake with passion fruit curd and lemon butter cream!

Besides being delicious, the cake fit perfectly with the couple’s Indian-themed wedding day.  The day also gave us the opportunity for a fun photo shoot, complete with elephants and elegance!  To see more of these images, check out the following magazines, which will feature the wedding in upcoming issues:

RIVERWALK GOLF, Great Place for San Diego Events!

Finding great outdoor events spaces in San Diego seems simple, but it can be challenging. What a treat to find a great spot like Riverwalk Golf Course, which showcases not only the lush, pastoral calm from the rolling greens but also offers its central location for easy access, nearby hotel rooms for guests, lots of parking, protection from hot sun & rain, and of course great vendors!

Riverwalk hosted their season’s Special Events gathering for wedding & corporate clients and invited Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. to become their current cake & dessert provider…we feel flattered and thrilled to be chosen as their neighborhood bakery!
