One of my favorite foods is cupcakes – I love sweets! I am happy to report that now I don’t have to go very far to satisfy my sweet tooth. Kelly Garcia has opened her new bakeshop Butter & Me down the street from the hotel. It’s on Goldwater Blvd. just north of Main Street, next to the Poisoned Pen Bookstore.
Butter & Me has an array of tasty cupcakes, cookies, bars, scones and pies. Eventually there will be a featured soup, sandwich and salad on their menu. One of Kelly’s specialties is custom cakes and cupcakes for special occasions, and she also offers decorating classes.
Kelly is also in charge of my favorite event at Hotel Valley Ho. The Cupcake Love-In is scheduled for Sunday, November 11 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. As soon as you walk into the ballroom, you can smell the wonderful flavors of all the cupcakes on display. Restaurants, chefs and bakeries will be showcasing their favorite cupcakes hoping to be named the best.
Not only do you get a chance to taste test those yummy cupcakes, but also to contribute to a charity. This year’s event is benefitting Project H3 Vets, which helps homeless veterans. So satisfy your sweet tooth and help a great cause by coming to the Cupcake Love-In at Hotel Valley Ho. Be sure to get your tickets early; they won’t be available at the door. See you there!
