We are delighted to have been asked to participate in the 2012 Academy Awards Talent Gifting Suite at the historic Avalon Hollywood Theater alongside SpeedZone. The gifting event took place Saturday, February 25 and it was an all day, celeb-studded affair. This is one of the most prominent award ceremonies to take place and what better place to be than amongst industry leaders, directors, costume designers, agents and professionals! A highlight for us was running into Temara Melek (actor, singer and dancer) as we just sang happy birthday alongside her for Connor Cruise’s 17th!
The first time we were asked to work with Speedzone was for Roshon Fegan’s CD release and birthday party. They brought us back for more as we gifted attendees with free racing passes and personalized boxed cupcakes with the signature logo and our Ah, How Sweet! doll dressed in her red carpet best to accept her Academy Award! We met other lucky gifters like Perfect vodka, The Delectable Cake Ball Company and Teeki (ah-mazing leggings, swimwear and panties made from recyclable bottles!) Oh! How could we forget, our favorite gift we received was the Marshmallow Fun Company‘s Double Barrel Shooter. Every baker should be armed with one of these bad boys.
Special thanks to Melissa Luna, Gabriel Cabrera, and Herick Serna for all their help in promotion, box folding, custom logo designing and just being awesome. Ah, How Sweet! are our photos that tell their very own story of this incredible experience:
