Part of my role in helping organize Social Media Day this year was to try and find partners and sponsors to join our event. This meant reaching out to local businesses, chatting about what the event was for and seeing how we could incorporate the different businesses into the event itself. After reviewing the sponsors that were already on board, I noticed one, rather key component missing from the list…..DESSERT! I immediately ran to social media to find a local baker that could help us out. Within seconds, I stumbled upon, The Sweet Tooth Cakery, a local “cakery” in South Tampa, located on Westshore Blvd. I contacted the owner and “Master Baker” , Pam, to see if she could be of assistance and she agreed. The cupcakes she provided were phenomenal and the coolest part, they were personalized with the logo for the event and other fun icons that were on brand for the event. I was sure to keep her number and contact info saved for future events.
Now that was back in June, so fast forward to last week when we received an email inviting us to an exclusive tasting at Sweet Tooth to try out and comment on some new menu items that are being released. We gladly accepted and on Wednesday night, Allison and I rushed our hungry stomachs right on over to the shop. We met the other bloggers that came for the fun and took our seats to get the tasting started.
So as you can see, we were asked to comment and judge on three types of cupcakes, Kahlua Biscoff Crunch, Sweet Potato Pie and Chicken and Waffles. But, before we could do that, we were served some delicious Party Cake Milkshake with a rainbow sprinkle rim. Let me say that the pictures don’t do any of these treats justice in that they were so yummy. The milkshake tasted like liquid birthday cake. SO GOOD!
We eventually got going on the cupcakes and to start off was the Kahlua Biscoff Crunch (top left). After that decadent treat, we moved on to Sweet Potato Pie which was both mine and Allison’s favorites. The marshmallow buttercream may have done it for us, but either way this one is a MUST TRY. Lastly, they brought out the Chicken and Waffles, which was rather intriguing. It literally had bacon bits and a chicken nugget on top, which made for a unique but appealing taste combo. As I ate it all I could think about was wanting an order of actual chicken and waffles. As we closed up the judging on the three (Sweet Potato Pie took the top spot for us), Pam explained there was one more surprise item to come. This item was something that she hadn’t seen done in Tampa before and was getting ready to launch it the next day on her menu. As many of you know, Cronuts were the big thing before summer began. Well, move over cronut because there is a new headliner in Tampa Bay! Introducing the COOKIE CUP! It is exactly what it sounds like, a cup made out of cookie. It can be personalized with different frosting, sprinkles, and filled with a plethora of different treats: milk, latte, ice cream, or empty! As we enjoyed all of the delicious treats, we made sure to snag a few shots and even squeezed in some “Sweet Tooth Selfies”. #pinkysupdrinkysup HAHA

As we got ready to leave and filled our to-go boxes because there was NO WAY we could finish all of those sweets in one sitting, we were presented with a Bourbon Banana Pudding Cheesecake baked in a baby mason jar as a parting gift. It is in the fridge ready for a tasting, so I will have to hold off on that judging. But, I am sure it will be delicious!
