Summer Solstice Shindig

To welcome the start of summer each year, my husband and I host an annual Summer Solstice event here in Santa Barbara. A less formal party, we kick off our shoes, listen to live music, and eat a spicy BBQ spread that only my co-host, and chef of our Kinfolk October workshop, Emma Cantu, can add to the mix. Enough cake for a small army followed, including 100 cupcakes and six full cakes! Peanut butter and chocolate, vanilla and coconut iced red velvet, hot & spicy chocolate pepper cupcakes, homemade strawberry & chocolate ice cream, fresh flower topped cakes... it was amazing! A day to remember for sure filled with friends and the sweet sounds of The Kinds. Check out the gallery of photos, by our very own Chelsea Mitchell! Have your taste buds been tempted? Please follow our blog, facebook page, Instagram #fruitfulcollaborations and look for recipes that will soon be found in our upcoming fruitful collaboration DIY/cookbook! More on that very soon!

And don't forget! Our first event of the season is in just a couple weeks! Join us at Summerset Farm August 2 from 10am - 1pm for berry picking, galette making workshop and picnic by the fabulous Ashley Mulligan Shutz! Tickets are $65, and are going fast. Don't miss out!
