North Pole Arbor Artisans Open House + Art Sale in So. Pasadena

New pics are up! I was invited to make sweets by Jewelry by Monica Lauren for a holiday event last weekend. Check out her beautiful pieces. The open house and sale donates a portion of their proceeds to community needs. The event was hosted at a grand old craftsman home in South Pasadena. Each artist was featured in a different room of the home. My decorated Texas chocolate sheet cake bites  were hosted outside. The event started at noon and people immediately began rambling through the home speaking to artisans about their wares and purchasing on the spot. Many vendors sold via the Square market and made sales on mobile devices. You can tell from the pictures this is a bunch of incredibly talented artists. I made fresh chocolate mini cake bites some were decorated with chopped pecans others with crystallized iceberg rose petals. The best part is the buttery fudge frosting on the top.
