Mother’s Day is less than a week away and if you’re still scrambling to find the perfect present, you should keep reading. We’re sharing a handful of great Los Angeles tastemakers, all of whom will be at Six Taste’s ‘Decadence: Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea Party’ on Saturday, May 12th (nothing surprises mom more than showing up a day early).
Nina Rodecker founded Tasty Clouds as a result of her pregnancy craving (very fitting for Mother’s Day). Her cotton-candy cravings became the inspired her unique flavors like Banana Cadabra, Berry Caliente, Asian Ginger, and Citrus Swirl. for her signature light, fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth cotton candy. We will be raffling off several tubs of her signature light, fluffy, melt-in-your mouth cotton-candy at our Mother’s Day Events.
