Desserts Unlimited 2015 in Legazpi City

Legazpi City, Albay - The sweetest event in Bicol for 2015 took place in LCC Mall Legazpi for the Unlimited Desserts 2015. Inspired by movies like Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, this event was designed primarily to provide a destination for everyone to enjoy sweet tasty desserts. Sublime Events Designer Co. was able to showcase around 32 Bicol's best dessert shops from local bakers and pasty shops to promote the region's local flavors.

The 2-day event was full of activities that every member of the family got to enjoy. Since it's the holidays and a time for giving, the event also had a Santa Corner where children got to donate books and school supplies. Children had the opportunity to be Santa's little helpers this Christmas to help children in need. The children who donated supplies had the chance to have their picture taken with Santa Claus.

The Chocolate Jolly Bingo was absolutely fun since the organizers implemented a twist in the mechanics. If you have the number on your Bingo card as read by the host and the bell rang, the participants received a treat of chocolate, cookie sticks or candy.

A seminar on How to Start a Dessert Business was shared by the Alec Pena of Bratanella Patisserie. Hobby and passion into a successful business just like Brat's started with cupcakes as her final project for her college degree. Inspired by Alec's sister, she started from basic baking skills and has now invested into further culinary studies. Indeed she has a lot more to share with her loyal customers. Everything is personal, from baking to designing, promotional materials up to final touch of the packaging of the pastries. Pretty sure that the audience, especially the students, got  inspired by Bratanella's presentation.

Easy, delicious and fun Christmas Desserts was also presented by Chef Jamie of ICARS through a cooking demo. A personality development seminar focusing on success principles that will help people reach their goals was shared by Teacher Queenie Maravillas, a motivational speaker based in Albay.

Cakes, cookies and pastries were common during the event, but the Pili Pulp Ice Cream caught my attention being the sole exhibitor of ice cream plus the camote-based products of Camote Creations. The Pili Pulp Ice Cream of Sweet Treats Albay is extra special. Created by a group of students of Bicol University as their project, this product will surely go a long way if supported well.

To conclude the event, the participants were serenaded by the sweetest voices of Bicol as they sang beautiful heartwarming Christmas songs.

Having this kind of event in a certain locality is a good opportunity for these budding entrepreneurs to get noticed. The two-day event did not only focus on the desserts per se but was a total holiday event package for the locals of all ages to enjoy. Gift-giving, talks, contests and the super fun Choco Bingo plus the opportunity to learn from one another was a success in this two-day sweet event.

We really had so much fun during the two day event. Hearing "Bicol Bloggers' on OK FM Legazpi was also a sweet treat for us.
Thank You Ms. Erika fo Sublime Events Designer Co. for tapping us for your event.
