At CakeSpy, the only thing that rivals the sweetness of the treats we eat is the awesome people we get to meet--bakers, artists, and sugar enthuiasts of all sorts. And I can say that without a doubt, one of the coolest people I've met in recent memory is Tuey. She contacted us a while back after reading about the Cupcake Street Art project--as it turns out, she's been making the world sweeter slowly but surely with monthly cake parties, mostly in Portland, at which she makes a cake and shares it with friends in the park--new friends and good times always ensued.
Next came several batches of quite possibly the best brownies known to man, using the recipe from Baked: New Frontiers in Baking.
And then they were made even more awesome by the addition of rosemary whipped cream.
With all of this sweetness in tow, we headed over to Cal Anderson Park on a perfectly sunny Sunday.
And we brought Danny's band, Exohxo, with us--because what party would be complete without music?
As the band began to play, people began to drift over--and from then on, we just let the good times flow. Much cake was consumed, many lucky people received free CakeSpy buttons, and we made a lot of sweet new friends.
At the end of the day, after taking Tuey back to the train for her journey home, we were all exhausted, but happily so: after all, we had all spent the day making the world a much sweeter place.
If you're interested, someone posted videos of the band playing too! Check 'em out here!
