…been wanting to decorate here since the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck parked outside. It’s Color Me Mine meets bakery.  I bring my secret weapon, Joy Osmanski, who is exceedingly talented at every single thing she does, to help with the evening’s competition.

The contest theme is “California Cuisine.” We got some tips from Duff Goldman, The Ace of Cakes himself!!!

Also crafting at our table was Chef Eric Greenspan, whose short rib grilled cheeses are legendary.

    Was so fun having you both join us for the Los Angeles Food & Wine pre-party! Some seriously talented people in the crowd but the Cal Cobb was a great call and so very well done!! Can’t wait to have you join us Aug 22-25 for the Festival. So many great chefs, wine, and fun is in store. Congrats on your win!!!!
