Designer Ice-Cream...YUP!

Are you are interested in something different for your upcoming Wedding or Event? Tired of the same old cake?  Maybe that candy bar is soooooo last year? Well then check this out! I received this press release from my friends over at Kern Communications.  It's about this up and coming trend...Designer Ice-Cream! Yup, I said Ice-Cream! Check it out:

Brides, grooms, wedding and bridal shower planners indelibly searching for ways to make their event memorable should integrate super premium ice cream into the experience, which can be done in a multitude of inventive ways. This according to Ellen Schack, CEO of Cowabunga Ice Cream – a super premium designer ice cream and healthful frozen yogurt brand to exhibit at The Great Bridal Expo in New York on April 8, 2011.

“Top shelf ice cream can elevate a wedding, reception or bridal shower experience from ordinary to extraordinary,” notes Debra Kulovitz, vice president of sales for the Great Bridal Expo Group, Inc. “From elegant ice cream bars at spring and summer soirées, to decadent build-your-own banana split or ice cream sundae stations, to wedding or shower cake à la mode, integrating sumptuous ice cream into the experience is one tasty way to create a distinctive event and sweet memories for all. We’re thrilled to have Cowabunga Ice Cream exhibiting at this year’s event.”

Ellen Schack, CEO & Edward (“Ed”) Schack, Co-Founder of Cowabunga Ice Cream

“Our inspired ice cream blends offer an exquisite epicure experience that’s perfectly suited for special occasions and celebrations like weddings and bridal showers,” notes Schack. “This is why we offer our fabulous frozen confections for full-scale catering nationwide.”

Those who’ve experienced Cowabunga Ice Cream rave not only about its bold, creative flavors, but also the fresh and creamy taste said to make other “premium” ice creams taste “day old.” New York Times bestselling author Omar Tyree has proclaimed Cowabunga as “the Louis Vuitton of ice cream,” while ActionCOACH business consultant Steve Vorrius declared, “Once you taste this ice cream you will never look at ice cream the same again.”

Cowabunga Ice Cream offers a wide variety of perennial and seasonal flavors, with many that are exclusive to the brand. Offerings in its current designer ice cream line include:

Rodeo Drive Designer Flavors:
Cookie Dough - Cookie dough flavored ice cream with chocolate chip cookie dough chunks and dark chocolate chips mixed in
Mint Chocolate Chip - Cool mint flavored ice cream with dark chocolate chunks
Cake Batter - Cake batter flavored ice cream that tastes just like out of the mixing bowl
Almond Joy - Coconut flavored ice cream with almonds and dark chocolate chips mixed throughout
Coffee Espresso - Rich coffee flavored ice cream with chocolate covered espresso beans scattered throughout
New York Cheesecake - Luxurious creamy cheesecake flavored ice cream including real cheesecake chunks and graham cracker swirled throughout

Off 5th Avenue Chocolate Flavors:
Classic Chocolate - A rich and decadent chocolate ice cream
Death by Chocolate – Chocolate ice cream with chocolate chunks, chocolate cake “crunchies” and fudge swirled throughout
Chocolate Peanut Butter – Chocolate ice cream swirled with creamy peanut butter

Lux Vanilla Flavors:
Very Vanilla – A smooth and velvety vanilla ice cream unlike any other
Take 5 – Vanilla ice cream with peanuts, caramel, and chocolate covered pretzels mixed in
Rice Krispy® Treat - Vanilla ice cream with marshmallow swirled throughout and Rice Krispies® mixed in

South Beach R.E.A.L. Yogurt – all flavors are low fat and contain probiotics to naturally promote healthy digestion:
Red Velvet Cake
Peanut Butter
Chocolate Cable Car

Those wishing to order Cowabunga Ice Cream or inquire about event or catering services may do so online at http://www.cowabungaicecream.com/.

The Cowabunga Ice Cream Difference:

Cowabunga Ice Cream is made in small 5 gallon batches. This allows us to keep our consistency creamy by controlling each step of our proprietary production process, including avoiding aeration. We do not “skimp” on anything, using only use the highest quality ingredients to ensure the utmost in flavor, texture, and decadence. For our designer ice cream line we also use a high butter fat content base, which is integral to achieve a ultra-creamy ice cream. Our exclusive recipe and production process ensures a minimal amount of air rather than over-aeration, a common ploy of mass-production manufactures that undermines the creaminess and density of the ice cream and artificially inflates volume.

Coy Clothes ~ T-Shirt Giveaway!

I won a giveaway a few weeks back.  Through that giveaway, I met Lisa of Coy Clothes.  She is a kick and her stuff is hilarious and cute. Can something be hilarious and cute at the same time...YES! I followed her blog and checked her out on Facebook, and she continues to keep me laughing day after day. So I had to share her all with you. She obliged AND said one lucky KDC Event reader could WIN one of her awesome shirts!! So read on... (to enter, see last paragraph)

Denice: Why did you start Coy Clothes?
Lisa: I started Coy Clothes because I saw a real need for funny, good-fitting t-shirts for the 30+ set. Also, I'd been home for 5 years with my kids and I was craving a creative/entrepreneurial outlet.

D: Where do you get your inspiration?
L: I always start with an image. I spend hours pouring over old advertising art looking for images that are evocative. Once I have an image, I focus on text. I'll work on the text until I have it down to two or three. Sometimes I'll post my shortlist on Facebook to get feedback, but usually I'll go with mine and my husband's gut reaction.

D: What is your favorite piece?
L: I have two favorites. I have a men's shirt called "Pensive Guy" and I really just love the illustration style. I think it's really beautiful and I love his expression. My funny favorite is the "Crazy Jesus Lady." She's ridiculous and has this crazy vacant expression that kills me.

D: Do you do custom orders, let's say for bridal parties?
L: I'm always open for custom orders! I'm happy to work with existing stock or source brand new images and write text for them. Just keep in mind, a custom order with a new image would take a minimum of 4 weeks.

Ok, now you have met Lisa of Coy Clothes- Go visit her site and tell me which one you love and have to have. (mandatory for entry)
