Sweet Shop tasting party

The Sweet Shop Team got together this morning (as in a.m.) and did some serious taste tests.  We only want to bring you...our future customers...the finest products.  There is nothing like taste testing cupcakes and chocolates at 8:30 in the morning!  We actually loved starting our day that way and highly recommend it.   Here are a few pictures of the products that we sampled below...enjoy (we did!!):

Some of the signature cupcakes that we will be selling.  Notice that a few of them have our logo on them and others say our name...cute!

Close up shot of the cupcakes.  Yes...they tasted as good as they look.

A picture of some of the chocolate bars we sampled this morning.  There were definitely a few products here that you will see in our Shop.

Sweet Shop & the SF chocolate show

The Management Team of the Sweet Shop went to the "San Francisco International Chocolate Salon" today and it was amazing!  We tasted over 20 different types of chocolates, sampled 2 different types of hot chocolates, sipped 3 different types of chocolate "infused" coffee and we glanced at (we weren't brave enough to try it) the body art chocolate.  There was more chocolate there than I have ever seen under one roof.  We think we have found some pretty wonderful products to sell at the Sweet Shop that will be unique and local and we hope you will stop by when we open to see what we have for you.  

The sign welcoming all of the chocolate lovers!!

Some of the chocolates were displayed in pretty this one

We really liked this chocolate.  They had their product displayed in a very unique way and it tasted great too.  Check them out if you get a chance.  They are called Brix Chocolate and you can find them online at

Chocolate show this weekend

The Sweet Shop will be dedicated to bringing you only the finest, high quality products. Many of those products will be local and organic too. We have been busy tasting chocolates from local chocolatiers and vendors and this weekend there is a chocolate show in San Francisco called the San Francisco Chocolate Salon. The management from the Sweet Shop will be going there this weekend (we are so dedicated to you...our customer!!) and tasting chocolates to hopefully find the best chocolates to sell in our store. We are doing our best to try to buy locally or organic...but most of all, to give you, our customer, the highest quality product available for the best price. See you in the summer of 2009!

The stucco is up!

We had quite the exciting day today as the stucco went up. Here are a few pictures of what the inside of the Sweet Shop looks like...with our stucco walls.

Look how we've changed!

The Sweet Shop continues to look better every time I come by!  Can't you just picture people walking in and out of these doors with their bags of candy, cups of coffee and favorite frozen yogurt in their hands?  I sure can!  

Here is where our ADORABLE Sweet Shop logo is going to go.  It is so cute!!  I can't wait to put it here! Check back soon because I should be able to share it with you!  You will love it.  

So exciting!  A counter is up! This is where we will be serving you yummy baked goods and coffee from.  

The view from inside out.  This is what we will be looking out at from inside.  We imagine looking at a lot of happy customers...both inside and outside of the Sweet Shop.
