Large scale conventions aren’t just for comic book aficionados… this one is for all you who recently finished your last piece of Valentine’s Day chocolate, but are still feeling a sweet tooth.

Cookie Con & Sweet Show returns to Los Angeles this weekend. This is the largest baking and pastry expo on the West Coast. Whether you love to eat or bake, you will be able to enjoy samples from over 275 different shops and brands. And celebrity pastry chef Duff Goldman will treat fans who attend on Saturday to cake that will be featured on an upcoming episode of “Cake Masters.”

Sweet bites for everyone: traditional, sweet, savory, salty, and – of course, because this is L.A. plenty of vegan and gluten-free treats too.

This is the perfect place to sharpen your baking skills with workshops on traditional baking, paleo baking, cake decorating, and cookie decorating. Make sure to come with an empty tummy, so you can leave in need of some serious belly rubs.

This convention will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on February 18 & 19. Tickets for the convention start at $25. Visit the website for more information.
