Since it’s been SO cold on the East Coast lately, I was extra excited to fly out to San Francisco this past weekend to host my sixth event, the San Francisco Bay Area Cake Poppers Meet-Up! Search #SFCPMU on Instagram for pictures from the event.
The event took place in San Bruno, in two parts. First, we all gathered at Sahaara Mediterranean Cuisine. We started off with an ice breaker so everyone could get to know each other while sharing stories about why they started making cake pops, the biggest order they’ve ever had, and other fun topics.
After lunch, Fairytale Brownies co-founder Eileen Spitalny lead a great talk, covering a number of interesting marketing topics such as establishing your mission, protecting your brand, and so on.
Before departing for our next location, we raffled off some amazing prizes. Click here to see our Facebook Album of all of the lucky prize winners.
We all headed over to Busy Baker Supplies, where the attendees were divided into four stations. Every 30 minutes, they rotated around, which allowed for more in-depth conversations in a smaller setting.

Then we had one extra special raffle prize… a KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer! Attendees posted Instagram selfies, which resulted in some really cute (& wishful) photos – baker Yhami L. was the lucky winner!
