Re-Cap of Chocolate Festival
Twin Cakes Bakery was a vendor at Chocolate Festival at NC State here in Raleigh. The chocolate festival was an event to raise money and bring awareness to breast cancer. We wanted to share with all of you what our day was like yesterday getting ready for the event. Lots of chocolate! We brought a variety of gluten free, vegan, soy free, corn free, peanut free and low glycemic products! Here is a snap shot of what we brought Now at the event... time to set up.
