Today Fusion Bakery celebrated their grand opening at their new location. With an excited crowd full of some pretty famous Middletown faces, a $50 dollar raffle, and of course, a smorgasbord of delightful samples, it was truly an event to remember.
Besides a jam packed case of full-sized baked goods for sale, Steve and his staff also offered a variety of miniature items for sampling. These included red velvet, carrot cake, and chocolate cupcakes covered with chocolate ganache, mini blueberry muffins, mini lemon tarts, flourless chocolate cakes, and caramel and plain milk chocolate from Vermont-based Lake Champlain chocolates.
We were in good company. Attendees included Quentin Phipps (Q), executive director of the Middletown Downtown Business District, Middletown’s Mayor Daniel Drew, Larry McHugh, president of the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce. Andy Heuer, director of development and fundraising for Marc Community Resources, Rosanne Bickford, owner of Lizzy B’s Sweet Celebrations, as well as a cluster of Wesleyan students, and tons of other fans.
The staff was busy wrapping pastries, whipping up beverages, and chatting with patrons, but they did find a minute to draw the winners for the raffle! The prizes were three $50 gift cards to the bakery…the first number drawn? Yep, it was me.
All in all, a seriously fun event. Now that they’re officially opened (and we have a $50 dollar gift card), we can’t wait to see what else Fusion has in store for us!
