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.
The other bloggers on the panel with me were Stephanie from Lick My Spoon and Damaris from Kitchen Corners , and Ryan from Foodbuzz moderated it. As a team, I think we did great!
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.
Mama Pea !!!
Resting up before the Gala Dinner. I’m not going to lie, I’m already hungry again.
