We baked 2,000 cheesecake samples and introduced a new Bitty Bite Caramel Pretzel which was a huge hit!  This was intense and exhausting... but loads of fun. The amount of positive feedback was outstanding. The line waiting for our booth was ridiculous.

We offered New York Cheesecake, Berry-Berrie Cheesecake, Death by Chocolate cheesecake and Cappuccino cheesecake. Plus, Bitty Bites in plain cheesecake, Oreo cheesecake and Caramel Pretzel. Mocha Cappuccino Supreme for the judges.
