Gina Colon and Victoria Andreacchio, VSCupCakery, who was wondering why no one created a cake flavored a salty, Carmel taste since the theme was under the sea?

Heather Rothman, the Director of Programs for Variety Works says;
“The success of this program has been phenomenal, but we couldn’t do it without the support of events like Let Them Eat Cake. Not only does this event have amazing and delicious cake, but all proceeds go to helping us grow this program and help more people.”

Always a fan favorite, the Loews Hotel’s Executive Pastry Chef Amanda Kaewvichien. In a few short weeks Amanda will be creating a spread of her deliciousness at the Loew’s Bank & Bourbon’s 5th annual Bourbon Bash, I can’t believe it’s been 5 years already. Guests at the Bash will also enjoy all the menu items the popular restaurant has to offer, like a nice slice of my favorite – The Cowboy Steak, with mushrooms, yum. Tickets are still available, and proceeds go to a great charity –
DonorsChoose.org, an organization that empowers public school teachers from across the country to request much-needed materials and experiences for their students. INFO HERE #PCCinTheHouse
