It’s been a good week for our friends at [desi]gn cakes & cupcakes.
At Sunday’s (March 17) I.E. Cupcake Fair, the bakery took top honors in the professional division in both Best Overall for its Salted Caramel cupcake and Most Unique Ingredient for its Apple Bacon Harvest cupcake.
And this Sunday (March 24), the Food Network will air its return to Cupcake Wars.
We spotted this on their website a while back, but it’s finally a reality…Sub Zero Ice Cream is opening in Rancho Cucamonga!
This is the chain’s sixth California location, but its first in the Inland Empire.
But it’s not our first liquid-nitrogen ice cream shop.
The shop, 10590 Town Center Drive, Suite 170, will open
Monday (March 18) Wednesday (March 20) eventually.
Those of you who checked our Twitter, Facebook or Google+ feeds this weekend might have seen that we finally got our hands on some delicious Sugarbird Desserts cinnamon rolls.
Lucky Facebook fans might be able to get their hands on a six-pack of Sugarbird Desserts cinnamon rolls — for free!
We’ve been anticipating this for a while…the Riverside Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour opens at 11 a.m. tomorrow (January 31)!
Many of you (myself included) remember the old Riverside Farrell’s at 10098 Magnolia Ave., which was converted years ago into a Coco’s Bakery Restaurant.
The new location, at 3610 Park Sierra Drive, threatens to put that old location to shame.
Formerly a Black Angus Steakhouse, it’s the largest of the chain at 8,700 square feet.
The Rancho Cucamonga Dairy Queen (9694 Base Line) is having its Customer Appreciation Day tomorrow (January 26).
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and will feature half-price specials, such as $1.99 banana splits and 99¢ small cones.

Who doesn’t love chocolate?
Diabetics, I suppose, and even most of them probably love chocolate, even if they’re not supposed to eat it.
If you love chocolate, good food and supporting a worthy cause, tickets are available now for the 19th annual Chocolate Fantasy.
The event is a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs.
Kiwanis clubs in the Inland Valley typically sell See’s Candy during the holidays to raise funds for their charitable efforts.
This year is no exception, and you’ve got at least three spots to conveniently pick up boxes of candy for friends and relatives (or yourself) and avoid the hassles of mall shopping.
Funny, they don’t look a day over two…
Ontario’s My Delight Cupcakery is celebrating its third anniversary from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday (December 9) at the bakery, 1520 N. Mountain Ave., Suite B-108.
This is one party you don’t want to arrive fashionably late to, however…the first 300 customers will receive one regular-sized cupcake.
In addition, while supplies last, those who bring a toy to donate to Steven’s Hope for Children will receive a regular-sized cupcake.
The delicious fun doesn’t end there.
It’s that time again, and I think this is the year we’ll finally get to see it!
What is it? The making of holiday candies at Logan’s Candies in Ontario.
You, too, can see it for yourself as the store is offering candy making demonstrations throughout the holiday season.
The next demos will be 9:45 and 11:45 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. tomorrow (December 1), during the city’s Christmas on Euclid craft fair.
Upcoming demos will be 5:30, 7 and 8:30 p.m. December 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22.
Space is limited, so it’s a good idea to show up 15 or 20 minutes early.
Logan’s and its candy cane maker, Jerry Rowley, were the subject of an NPR article and interview back in 2007.
Redlands-based Sugarbird Desserts is going to make Christmas a little sweeter for four of its Facebook fans.
The bakery is hosting a contest to give away four six-packs of its delicious cinnamon rolls.
All you have to do is head to this post on Sugarbird’s Facebook page and leave a comment saying “SHOW ME THE ROLLS!”
The four winners will be chosen at random on December 18.
One comment per person, please, and the winners must be able to pick up their sweets on Christmas Eve from J.D. Myers, 122 E. State St., Redlands.
At the time of this writing, there’s already 171 comments on the post, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a chance! And as they say, you can’t win if you don’t enter.
If you haven’t tried Sugarbird’s desserts, you can usually find them between 8 and 11 a.m. Saturday mornings at the Certified Farmers Market on Redlands Boulevard between Fifth and Sixth streets.
Sugarbird Desserts’ cookies are also used in à la minute’s decadent ice cream sandwiches.
Update: Sugarbird has picked its winners! Congratulations to Linda Hubbard, Cassandra Berk, Cynthia Soto and Stefanie Serrano Wall.
