The two hosts Karen Tack and Alan Richardson (authors of “Cupcakes, Cookies & Pies Oh My”) were there to show everyone how to decorate cupcakes with cute Easter holiday ideas using Jelly Belly jelly beans and other candies. Being a cupcake aficionado, I couldn't wait to try my hand at being a cupcake artist!

Dylan's provide snacks and drinks from their cafe upstairs we ate before the event and Jelly Belly had a whole display of all their other products, including Jelly Belly sodas - I tried the Juicy Pear flavor and it really tasted like the Juicy Pear jelly bean!

They have some really fun and cool products that I had no idea existed. Car air fresheners? check. Scented iPhone case? check. Body wash? Check. Scented nail polish? Check!

So there were four designs they showed us how to create -
  • a red high heeled cupcake
  • a flower
  • a sheep
  • a cute Easter egg
All of these involved different candies and confectioneries including Jelly Belly, some chocolate dipped cookies and graham crackers and melted chocolate for the egg. Some of these are definitely not easy cupcakes to design and would need a lot of prep work beforehand if you actually wanted to make a bunch of them for a Easter party!

That being said, I had a blast making these creations and the kids loved making them too... I didn't want to eat them afterwards, they were too pretty and adorable! I love my sheep. :)
