Last Night at the Scottsdale Culinary Festival: Bubbles and Bliss for the Extreme Sweet Tooth

We're used to gussying ourselves up to go to Sushi Roku for great sushi, so when we came back to the W Hotel for Bubbles and Bliss, we expected the crowd to be dressed up to eat way too many mini cupcakes and sip on champagne. We didn't expect a tight mini-dress competition. This is the girliest event in the SCF lineup, complete with on-site spa treatments, on top of the cupcakes and champagne thing. But we thought that meant that the point was to relax. Since the focus for Chow Bella is the food, we'll try to ignore all of that.
