Sugar Fix: ICDC

Sugar Fix: ICDC in Los Angeles

I’m slowly prepping you for the insanity that will be the 2nd annual Donut Week because, you know, I don’t want you all to pass out with overwhelming donut happiness all at once. Samantha mentioned that there was a new colorful dessert place in LA and we BOOKED IT to the brand spankin’ new ICDC where donuts, ice cream and candy-colored walls live in harmony. Basically, it’s my dreamland. It was started by Amy Knoll Fraser (owner of BLD) and pastry chef Mariah Swan, who’s been serving up coveted donuts at BLD for years. Now with a whole shop devoted to items like rocky road donuts (that’s chocolate drizzled AND homemade marshmallows) and their namesake “ICDC” Affogato, a salt + pepper caramel donut topped with a scoop of ice cream and finished with an espresso pour over, I highly encourage you all to get your booties over there too!

The New Studio DIY HQ (+ Meet Samantha!)

Studio DIY HQ

Based on my track record, it’s only appropriate that it’s taken me almost four months to introduce you to the new Studio DIY HQ and the newest Studio DIY team member, Samantha! We moved into a bigger, better studio space in February for a number of reasons: space, a nicer floor in the building and most importantly, A SINK! Let me tell you, I have never been so excited to have a sink in my life. Here’s a few peeks at the new HQ, the clean slate it started as and an intro to the gal who’s been helping keep Studio DIY running smoothly!
