Cupcakes and More!

It has been a long time since I have been able to get to the blog.  Things have continued to be insanely busy!  I hope to get back to the blog on a more regular basis. 
So let's catch up a little!  First, my friend Jenn at Posh Couture Cupcakes and Cakes has opened her new shop 401 Monte Vista Avenue, Vacaville.  Her new storefront new storefront is a cupcake boutique, champagne & tea lounge, and espresso bar.  Her alcohol license is still pending but in the meantime go in and see her super cute store, enjoy some Illy Coffee or Tea Forte Tea and a cupcake or two.  I believe she has chocolate dipped strawberries also. My suggestion is to go early as I have a feeling she will sell out fast! Also, if your in the market for a cake, she designs sculptured cakes. cake pops, cake bites and cake truffles.  Check out her website at  You can also like her on facebook at!

Speaking of Facebook ....MagPies finally caught up with the times and you can now follow us on facebook.  We try and post all that we are up to, where we will be, menus, things that are getting close to selling out, pictures, etc.  Please like us on facebook!

Fancy Food Show

It seems like I have posted nothing but cake pictures.  Not sure why.  I have been saving these since January. 
The above is Duff from Ace of Cakes, who was introducing his new cake products.  The Food Show had various stars all over the show.  Most of whom I wouldn't have known were stars if it weren't for the people I was with.  Food is big business!
The show continued to grow this year.  Again, it seemed to me like the organic/natural foods section continued to grow.  
After all the eating, walking and talking I found some great products that I hope to be using in the near future.  I found some new catering products, particularly in the drink department.  I also found a new fondant product that has various flavors.  Great for people who hate fondant on cake.  I hope this changes peoples mind!
I will be filtering through all the information I collected over the next months and will continue to share it with you.

Deliveries will be Sunday from 9am-11am.

More Cakes

I have been busy with another round of cakes.  The first cake was for a 1st Birthday Party.  The pink cake (sorry picture no great) was a ruffle cake for Valentines Day and the Red and White Flower Cake was for a 80th Birthday Day.  I love to do cake but to be honest I am still finding my footing with cakes.  I sometimes go a few months without doing a cake and then have to get my feet wet again.  I enjoyed creating the cakes and being part of each of these special days!

Things just keep getting more busy! Trust me I am not complaining though. I just wish I could be better about getting the blog posted in a more timely manor.

The above picture was created by my beautiful daughter while we were making salad the other night..  The rest of the pictures are from a set-up we did for bride-to-be to look at.  We are planning a dessert bar, cake and favors!  So much fun to work on things like this!

They use the arts to reach launch a new generation of confident, loving, motivated and community minded people.

We had 14 girls create stunning art projects, dance and eat rainbow colored food!
Mary who owns and operates this business is a true gem! She is patient, entertaining and a long time supporter of MagPies. We used her electricity for a season to run our freezer for ice cream at the Vacaville Farmers Market.
