Attention Austin candy makers! How would you like to make something for the Trail of Lights this year? We got a request from Alexandra Stewart (astewart **at** 3canevents.com) to post this opportunity:

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Trail of Lights, and we are planning something extra special for Austin. The traditional Candy Land display will be transformed into a live activity zone with exciting candy making demonstrations and delicious holiday treats from local artisans. Over 15 nights we will entertain and indulge trailgoers with a variety of competitions, decorations, and techniques.We are seeking local chocolatiers, sugar artists, candy makers and other confectioners to showcase their talents in Candy Land. The Trail of Lights will take place December 7th to December 21st, and we expect up to 100K visitors to Candy Land during the event. Please let me know if you know of anyone that would be interested in this special opportunity.

Contact Ms. Stewart at the address above if you are interested!

Slowly but surely your club secretary is working back through years of minutes to post them to this site. You will be able to find them all here: http://capitalconfectioners.com/meeting-minutes/. There won’t be a blog post to announce each new minutes going up, but hopefully once the backlog is posted, new ones will be up within a week or so of meetings.

What else would be useful for our members to see on this site? Let us know in comments!

bakesale

As Jennifer Bartos of Make it Sweet mentioned at our last club meeting, the store will be having an Open House event on July 1 and 2 during their regular business hours. There’ll be plenty of activities for all ages, including a bake sale with proceeds benefitting Capital Confectioners.

The public (especially club members!) are asked to donate baked goods for the sale. This is a great opportunity to try out recipes for bars or cookies you’ve seen in books or online without having to eat a whole batch! With Independence Day later that week, you can bring themed desserts if you wish, or go for a summer or other theme, or just something undecorated that tastes yummy.

Please bring donations to Make it Sweet during business hours on Monday, June 30 or just before opening at 10 am on July 1. If you have a baking business, you can leave some of your business cards to be handed out as well. Then stay to shop, play, and have fun!

And of course even if you can’t bring a baked good, you can come by to buy some! Tell your friends and family and help spread the word!
