Behind The Scenes: Children Mending Hearts Art Workshop & Spring Fundraiser 2011

Here is a couple of Behind the Scenes shots of the 2011 Children Mending Hearts Spring Fundraiser and Children's Art Workshop!

The 2011 Children Mending Hearts Spring Fundraiser this year was an outdoor, elegant high profile affair. Situated in the courtyard of a private home within Brentwood, CA. 100-150 high net-worth guest were invited to not only help raise funds for an amazing cause founded by Lysa Heslov, but to also recognize the efforts of kindness and generosity of two recipents of this years' Humanitarian Awards- Maria Bello and Mr. Bill Gates Sr.

We were asked by Lysa Heslov herself to create delicious bite-sized cupcakes fit for the billionaire crowd....and I think we nailed it! Our cupcakes were the talk of the night amongst the most A-List celeb guest list that included:

Bill Gates Sr.
Ben Affleck
Patricia Arquette
Aisha tyler
Maria Bello
Tippi Hedren
Bonnie Hunt
Steven Weber and many more!

Check out our Sensational menu of the evening:

Turtle Cheesecake-French chocolate cake filled with a caramel cheesecake, topped with a whipped caramel Belgian milk-chocolate frosting, drizzled with caramel sauce and finely chopped pecans.

Apple Pie- Madagascar Bourbon vanilla cake, filled with an apple pie filling, topped with an apple buttercream seized with fine ground spices, then rolled in graham cracker dust and topped with a handmade fondant apple painted in edible 24 karat solid gold and then rolled in edible gold glitter.

Christy's Southern Red Velvet- Cupcake Wars Food Network winning recipe! A velvety light cocoa cake topped with a Madagascar vanilla bean cream cheese frosting!

Cameras and filming crews were forbidden at this exclusive event, but our very own Suite Girl, Rebecca, got a chance to sneak this incredible atmosphere shot on her mobile phone...we think the outdoor lounge clusters created by celebrity wedding event producer, Jo Gartin of Love Luck and Angels were absolutely breath-taking, not to mention the scrumptious mini cupcakes
in the picture by none other than Suite 106 Cupcakery.

We Love To Volunteer! On May 7, 2011 Our Suite Girls Christy and Rebecca volunterred along side Mayor Villagrosa, Corbin Bleu of High School Musical, Matthew "Mdot" Finely of Camp Rock and many many more celebs in Watts, CA for the annual Children Mending Hearts Art Workshop. Our Suite Girls also provided delicious cupcakes for over 650 at-risk children who painted t-shirts for kids in Haiti and backpacks for kids in Japan!

Here's a couple of pics of our Suite Girls, their friend Corbin Bleu and one awesome cupcake fan!

Our very own Suite Momma Lee with Bill Gates Sr., Yes that is "THE" Bill Gates father! It was such an honor to meet Mr. Gates - he was a very kind, gracious and humble human being.

We had the privilage to meet some outstanding kids who loved the cupcakes and a handful of remarkable parents and teachers who appreciated Suite 106 Cupcakery's support and attendance.
