There will be a convention coming up in Los Angeles that will be so different from any convention Fangirl Nation has ever attended. Instead of comic books, geek celebrities, or cosplay, there will be something more. Something to make the eyeballs widen, the mouth salivate, and the heart pitter patter.
It will be a convention of SWEETS.
There will be two days of taste testing, cakes, cupcakes, decorating classes, cakes, cakes,cakes!!!! Fairly positive that this correspondent will be jittery in the beginning and then a sugar induced stupor by Sunday evening.
To sweeten the experience even more (eh…eh…see what I did there???), Nerdy Nummies Youtube creator, Rosanna Pansino will be in attendance on Sunday! For anyone who is nerdy and enjoys any baking crafts, this Youtube channel is a must see. Check out her recent video featuring a tutorial on BB-8 cake pops using orange pound cake! Pansino is an absolute adorable delight to watch and the videos are just fun. Seriously, watch these videos.
It is also very interesting to note that 100% of the proceeds from the sugar art and baking competitions will benefit Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Good luck to the competitors and congrats on helping out the charity. I will definitely look forward to seeing the outcome of the competitions.
