Making One of Liberia's Favorite Sweets with Rosemarie Tolbert of Rozi Sweets!

Laughter, Treats & African Prints

February is a month, because of Valentine’s Day, heavily associated with desserts. Additionally, according to USA Today and Technomic, the food industry research specialist, although people are all into a better-for-you eating habits they are actually consuming more desserts more often. 

Some 40% of consumers surveyed say they're eating desserts after a meal at least twice weekly -- compared to 36% just three years earlier, the report says. The report is based on a national survey of 1,500 U.S. consumers.

Based upon this, and the fact that our CEO has a sweet tooth, we hosted a dessert cooking class to help friends and clients learn how to elevate their current baking skills.

This event ~ Sweets & Treat: Wrapped in Afro-Print ~ was led by sweet’s expert, Rosemarie Tolbert, of Rozi Sweets. Her desserts are currently featured on Essence and are on the menu at The Brooklyn Chop House.  Rozi gave attendees useful tips on, among other things, how to elevate Duncan Hine’s box cakes and decorate a cupcake. Did you know you should always use four eggs to bake a cake?!

Rozi also whipped up the culture, with the crowd pleaser and Liberian, condensed milk based treat called milk candy.

Guests wore beautiful and vibrant Afro-print aprons as they created and tasted delicious treats from Rozi Sweets.

This event was part of the newly launched “Print Rising Experience,” organized and hosted by lifestyle brands Wax + Wonder and Afropolitan Boutique. It celebrated the infusion of bold and vibrant Afro-print into our everyday life; each “Print Rising Experience” promises to help attendees rejuvenate their body, mind and style.
