Who doesn’t love a good cupcake? We know the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars judges do, and they especially loved the Blue Eyed Daisy’s. On Sunday, June 17, the Food Network aired an episode showing the bakers of the Daisy being crowned winners of this season’s Cupcake Wars and taking home the $10,000 prize.
To make the night even sweeter for Candi Pittman, our resident baker, Serenbe hosted a viewing party for residents, Daisy staff, and Candi’s family. The cheers were loud, the smiles wide, and the applause enthusiastic when the judges announced their decision.
Since the show aired, the Daisy staff has been kept busy baking, decorating, and filling orders for the now famous flavors, which you can purchase to enjoy.
Our friends, Dana and David Widmer, Christy Bacon, Smith Hanes, and my family got together for a 12 hour re-do of the restaurant. Items were cleaned and rearranged, walls were displayed and stocked with Serenbe merchandise, and jars were filled with “old-fashioned” candy.
I know everyone remembers this candy from their childhood, candy necklaces, saltwater taffy, rock candy and more….. what fond memories.
Cecilia Winston, another Serenbe resident will be making lots of decorated cookies, cupcakes and her fabulous homemade cheesecakes.
I hope you come by to try out the new menu featuring many new additions that many of you missed. More soups, egg salad sandwiches, new salads and lunch combos are just a few of the changes. Prices have been lowered too so drop by and let them know what you think.
Enjoying breakfast at the new Daisy.
Tomorrow morning (Saturday, 8/15) at 10 am I will be having a cooking demo at the Serenbe Farmers market!
Come join the fun and shop around for beautiful art work, planters, fresh herbs and of course a wonderful selection of home grown veggies from Serenbe farms as well as other local farmers.
Tomorrow’s demo will be “all things eggplant”! So many people always tell me they don’t know what to do with eggplant or are afraid to cook it. Come see me and learn how to make three different dishes including my mom’s famous eggplant souffle.
