Saturday Sweets: The Wynwood Yard Hosts A Sweets Social


Chances are you’re wrapped up in a thing called Art Basel, and haven’t had the chance to think about what’s next on your social calendar. But if you’re ready to plan ahead and you’ve got a sweet tooth — then we’ve got an event for you!

Next weekend, The Wynwood Yard will be hosting its first ever Baker’s Dozen: A Sweets Social, following the highly popup Ice Cream Social from previous years. This sweet event shines the spotlight on thirteen of Miami’s talented bakers from world-class pastry chefs to up-and-coming culinary entrepreneurs, dessert masters and dream makers, on December 15th from 3:00 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Melt into a masterfully made treat by pastry chef Karina Rivera, a Mexican native in Miami whose day job has her making world-class pastries working side-by-side with superstar pastry chef, Antonio Bachour at Bachour Bakery. She also makes time to foster a platform, @womenchefs305, where women in the food and beverage industry can connect.

Get a taste of personal trainer and cookie maker, Lamaar Evans, who gives you permission to Indulge MIA (my inappropriate appetite) with fan favorite confections like cookies-n-cream, and his campfire cookies, a play on America’s beloved s’mores.

Taste the passion behind Zaytouna Foods’s namoura, a semolina cake topped with an almond and soaked in irresistable aromatized syrup. It’s prepared by Syrian refugee women in Miami, connecting them to their new home in South Florida through traditional Syrian eats made with love.

Other participating bakeries and sweets-makers include Lily & Pips, Illegal Bakery, Lulu’s Nitrogen Ice Cream, SusiLicious Bake Shop, Dasher and Crank and Indulge MIA.

Your pocket-friendly $10 ticket gets you generous tasting portions from each one of the thirteen bakers. Vote for your fave to help them land a pop-up at The Wynwood Yard!

In addition, The Bar at The Yard will serve up sip da day away happy hour specials from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. including a Simple Vodka cocktail and Bubbles & Bubbles specialty drinks.

Bring your friends, kids and pets — and of course your sweet tooth!
