Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Mixed Food Bloggers Conference again,
held at the beautiful Mountain Lake Resort in Pembroke, VA.
(You can read about last years conference here.)
and Susan of Doughmesstic.
There were so many awesome sponsors this year!
I came home with lots of goodies :)
We made our own sugar scrubs in the Dixie Crystals Sugar Suite.
The Chocolate Sugar lip scrub tastes fantastic!
You can find the recipes to make your own here.
McCormick was one of the major sponsors.They taught us so many great tips on flavoring and coloring foods to make them extra special.
How cute are these cookie cups colored and flavored to match your celebration.
This confetti cake was my favorite.
It is SO pretty!
Ombre cakes are very popular right now.
The possibilities are endless!
How adorable is this polka dot cake!
Hazelnut Hot Chocolate on a Stick.
Perfect for holiday parties!
Hershey's made sure we had plenty of sweets on hand!

We had the opportunity to sample Hershey's new Chocolate Spreads - yummy!
Dole Dippers for movie night.
One of the highlights for me was meeting Alan Richardson and Karen Tack of the book

They have the best ideas and decorate the cutest cupcakes!
I met so many new friends this year.
