Cutie Patootie of the Week!
Back in November at the Cleveland Fabulous Food show Duff and our gang had the pleasure of meeting Miss Isabella. She came to the show decked out in a home made Duff T-shirt and was just about the most adorable little muffin that ever was.
Here she is with Duff after they swapped hats:
…and us girls met up with her later on the floor of the show (here you can really appreciate the awesomeness of her shirt):
We heart you, Isabella! Thanks for making our visit to Cleveland filled with cuteness and awesome.
We Love Our Troops
A while back, I got an email from Staff Sargeant Charles Johnson, who is charge of the cooks of Echo Forward Support Company, 1-41 Infantry Brigade, supporting Bravo Company, at Combat Out Post Baraki Barak in the Logar Province of Afghanistan. SST Johnson told us that he really wanted to be able to make special cakes for his guys for birthdays and special events but didn't have the supplies to do so.
You want to make awesome cakes but need some stuff? Duff and company to the rescue! We contacted our friends at Gartner Studios, the makers of Duff brand cake decorating supplies to see if they could help. Did they ever come through! They send us a huge bunch of supplies which we then sent off (with some CCC shirts and holiday decorations) off to SST Johnson and his guys in Afghanistan. A few weeks later we started getting some pretty fantastic emails with photos of what he had done with his cake stuff.
Very excited to have so much to play with:
…a couple of cakes for a birthday and New Years:
…and the guys enjoying their New Years Eve festivities:
Keep up the awesome decorating, SST Johnson! We can't wait to see more of what you come up with and hope you guys all get home safe and soon!
That's it from the 410. Hope everyone's weekend is super duper and I know I speak for the entire CCC staff when I say,
