{Mini Pie Bar}

I know I say this every week, but each week I am beyond thrilled to share a brand new bar idea on our Raising the Bar series!  I’m not going to lie; it’s getting just a little bit tougher to stare at all of the dreamy desserts on my computer screen while trying to get in shape for summer, but who's counting calories, right?

Today’s sweet guest is the amazing Andrea Smetona, founder of Cakewalk Desserts.  Andrea founded Cakewalk Desserts last summer as a bit of a side project.  It was soon after that she realized the demand for these little sweet treats was the perfect match for her love of baking, turning this side project into her full-time love affair! 

Cakewalk Desserts specializes in couture Cake Pops, Pie Pops and Mini Pies.  These bite-sized sweet treats come in a variety of flavors and designs and make a perfect addition to a dessert table, a practical and elegant wedding favor and for some, are now even taking the place of the traditional wedding cake itself (hold on to that thought because you may change your mind later in the series).

Andrea’s educational background in Interior Design has given her an advantage in the mini dessert industry because they like to consider the "whole picture," meaning they take into account how these pops are best packaged for each occasion, the display and the overall presentation of the pops.

Proper displays really showcase mini desserts and ensure that they aren’t missed or forgotten! There is something so special when a bride asks you to be a part of their big day, and Cakewalk knows that each order should be unique and reflect the style of the bride and groom they’re made for!
