Good news: I faced my fear of public speaking and survived the food blogging panel!!
Bonus: I didn’t pass-out and I only said a few weird things!
Really, it wasn’t that bad. I was nervous the whole time, but I managed to form complete sentences and, hopefully, people took something useful away from it.
After the panel, I caught up with Mara before heading to Taste Pavilion.
Where I dominated the desserts and booze.
At the event, I was especially excited to see Mission Mini cupcakes and Annie the Baker’s Dough Balls!
I absolutely loved the Carrot Ginger and Red Velvet cupcakes.
And the Toffee Milk Chocolate Chip Dough Ball! It’s the BEST dessert ever!
Seriously, it is. Best.dessert.ever. Got that? Good.
I also enjoyed a bunch of “savory” foods at the Tasting Pavilion. But, I don’t get nearly as excited about them, so I didn’t snap too many photos.
I spent a lot of time eating, but I spent even more time chatting away with new and old blog friends.
Resting up before the Gala Dinner. I’m not going to lie, I’m already hungry again.
