Need a little sweetness in your life? Big Bite Events has just the thing for you. Coming down with the recent success of their Big Bite Bacon Fest in Long Beach, they’ve announced their newest concept in “foodtainment,” Sugar Rush.

Sugar Rush is a one-of-a kind combination dessert showcase and sweet market experience. Festivalgoers will also enjoy chef demonstrations, live entertainment, games and crafts for kids. As with all Big Bite Event productions, there will be plenty of fun themed games and entertainment to keep everyone busy!

The event is packed with entertainment, competitions, demonstrations, walk-about tastings, and shopping from dozens of the best pastry chefs and confectioners in Southern California.

Karina Jimenez of Viva Los Cupcakes is the chef behind an award winning specialty cupcake company which draws inspiration from Mexican regional foods and desserts to create new and unique cupcake flavors like the ‘Tamal con Mole” cupcake. (Pictured above.)

Olivia, owner and founder of Unbaked: A Cookie Dough Bar, makes sweet dreams come true with 100% safe-to-eat edible raw cookie dough.

In celebration of National Cookie Cutter week, Sugar Rush is inviting both professional confectionary and pastry chefs along with amateur dessert artisans to participate in the Sugar Rush Cookie Competition. This competition will offer everyone a chance to put a favorite family cookie recipe to the ultimate test. There will also be a Sugar Cookie Art Display Competition, which will bring together a cookie, an artist and a cause to battle for the best sugar cookie art display. All entries will be put on display for the festivalgoers to bid on via a silent auction, with 100% of the auction proceeds being donated to a local charity.

Regular tickets are still available and start at $20. VIP tickets for Sugar Rush are also available and include one-hour early admission before general admission guests, a VIP swag bag, chocolate and spirits pairing and access to the VIP Sugar Lounge. The event will open at 11 a.m. for VIP, 12 p.m. for general admission and continue until 5 p.m. daily. The event will be held at the OC Fair & Events Center in Costa Mesa.

Atticus Creamery & Pies Opens New Location in Hollywood

Atticus Creamery + Pies Hollywood

Atticus Creamery & Pies recently opened their second location. Following-up on the success of their first location in West LA, Atticus Creamery & Pies has launched their second Los Angeles location near The Grove. The new Atticus location serves up hand made pies, ice cream, coffee drinks, and a few non-coffee drinks too.

Inside Atticus Creamery and Pies Hollywood

Their pies are baked daily at their Pico location and then delivered fresh to the Hollywood location. They feature creative and delicious flavor combinations such as Early Grey, Salted Caramel, Lemon Lavender, Strawberry Pistachio, Blackberry Cheesecake, and more. If you need help deciding what to get, just ask for a sample!

Atticus Hollywood Amazing Pies(L-R: Lemon Lavender, Blueberry Cheesecake, Strawberry Pistachio, Peanut Butter Chocolate.)

Their pies are made with only the freshest ingredients, and they do not use artificial colors or flavors. Their scratch-made crust is light and flaky, and pairs with each pie flavor beautifully.

Atticus Creamery & Pies in Hollywood also features a rotating selection of ice cream, also hand made in their Pico location. These ice creams also feature no artificial colors or flavors, and feature incredible flavor combinations such as Honey Honeycomb (one of their most popular), Milk and Cereal, Raspberry Champagne, Brown Sugar Apple Pie, Caramel Macchiato and more.

And of course what compliment pie and ice cream better than coffee? Atticus has a great selection of flavored lattes as well as espresso, brewed coffee, and cold brewed coffee. The stand out of their coffee selection is the “Atticus Cold Brew.”

Atticus Hollywood Coffee & Dessert

The Atticus Cold Brew takes cold brew coffee to the next level with a splash of whole milk and a hint of maple syrup. It’s the perfect refreshing drink on a warm day, and it pairs amazingly with a Lemon Lavender pie!
