Last week, Katie, owner of our Ruston store, had the privilege of heading over to one of our favorite cupcake shops to learn a little more about baking! Heather, the owner of Social Bites in Ruston, was kind enough to teach her the basics of baking while letting her indulge in a few sweet treats so that we could share it with you. As you can probably imagine, they had a blast in the kitchen together...

Social Bites is the most adorable little shop in downtown Ruston. Our Rodéo team visits them almost everyday. (Yes, it's a problem. We know.) The good (or bad) news is that they are about to be our neighbor! Heather is moving her shop to West Park Avenue in August. She will be relocating and expanding so that she can offer a space inside that you can rent out for parties and showers. We couldn't be more excited to have her on our street, but we have a feeling this could be dangerous!

Heather is a native of Ruston, Louisiana and has had Social Bites for seven years. She loves everything about baking and has become accustomed to an apron being her uniform! Her sweet "weakness" is Carrot cake.

Although baking was a lot of fun, it is not as easy as it looks. Loading massive pans into a really hot oven is no easy job. And with baking, there is little room for mistakes or errors. However, the reward can be so sweet. 

Thanks again to Heather of Social Bites for welcoming us into your kitchen. You are the sweetest! If you live in Ruston, make sure to swing by her shop and indulge in a cupcake and an old fashioned coke! 

Keep Dreaming,

The Rodéo Girls
