Mini Baker Tasting for MARK MCGRATH!

by Christa on September 15, 2009

Post image for Mini Baker Tasting for MARK MCGRATH!
Mini Baker had to opportunity to do a sampling for Mark McGrath owner of “A” Restaurant and Market!

“A” Restaurant and Market just opened in Newport Beach. It’s a rebirth of “The Arches”, a very famous steakhouse that opened in Newport Beach in 1926 for celebrities and locals alike to dine in an intimate setting and enjoy amazing food.
I put together a box of cupcakes including: Coconut Cream Cupcakes, Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes, Red Velvet Cupcakes and Oreo Cupcakes. I also let him sample the famous “Mini Baker Carrot Cake”, some of my home-made strawberry jam, Apple-of-My-Eye Mini Apple Pies and Mini Baker Toffee.
Word has it he LOVED it all! I will know soon if my products will have a home at this fine restaurant!
I was delighted just to have the opportunity to bake for a celebrity/singer I have admired for many years 🙂

Here’s a few pictures of the spread…

You go girl! That is so totally rockin' 🙂 Your cupcakes all looks soooo yummy!

How fun to make little treats. Of course that just means I will eat more because if they are little then there are less calories which means you can have as much as you want right? Like I said, non fat milk with Hostess cupcakes, it all equals out.
I am glad you found me. It is so interesting to read others blogs and talents and become friendly.
And you are way too adorable.

Now that's a real blast from the past for me, man I remember those songs back in high school. That's really neat that you got to do that.

Love that cupcake with the cookie and frosting, that's a mini version of everything delicious in this world 🙂


Melissa September 16, 2009 at 12:49 am

Mark McGrath is hot! I might share those cupcakes with McGrath, but I'd have most of them for myself.
