Without further ado, Here is Heavy on Fashion Talks Kimmee Masi, Owner of Confections of A Rockstar!







How did Confections of a Rockstar come to be? 

K.M.: I knew I was going to open a bakery but it needed to combine music since I have been playing drums since I was 4...thats how it was born


What inspired you to become a Baker? 

K.M.: My father had 2 bakeries called Vincent's Cookie Cupboard (Manalapan and Freehold) I spent my childhood and early teenage years in a bakery



What would you say is the hardest part of starting your own business?

K.M.: Where to start-menu items where to purchase reliable equipment and finding a staff that believes the goal you are trying to achieve as much as I do

How long does it usually take you to conceive and create a Confections of a Rockstar cupcake? 

K.M.: It depends on, could take a few minutes or a few days...cupcakes are easy but we do a lot more.  Custom cakes (Wedding, grooms birthday etc) Cheesecakes-cookies-cannolis-cream puff-seasonal donuts-gluten free items french macarons.  Sometimes you go with what are current flavors trending and then try to toss in a flavor that isn't and pray for a masterpiece.


As a fellow Jersey Shore Girl (born in Asbury park, raised in Neptune) What inspired you to called Asbury Park the home of Confections of a Rockstar? 

K.M.: Asbury Park is "Where Music Lives" there couldn't have been a better fit, growing up close to Asbury and spending a lot of time playing shows at the Saint, The Stone Pony, and bars that do not exist anymore it was already like a home to me.


How as Asbury Park influenced the Confections of a Rockstar brand?  

K.M.: The brand was already completed before opening the store, I had spent 3 years marketing and branding prior to opening. The fact that it is such a musical town def expands upon it

What are some of your proudest accomplishments as a baker and business owner?

K.M.: Watching my staff grow and become so incredibly awesome at what they do.  I am not an easy person to work for, I like perfection. Creating my new show, More Famous Than You. It’s a series that I have created through celebrity contacts to raise money for various charities. 

As a business owner and personal, I like to give back whenever I can. This allows me to listen to music, back and give back all at the same time and this show allows me to do just that!


What do you hope to have achieved 10 years from now? 

K.M.: Ten years from now I would still love to be helping people and have a successful few Confections stores in music city in the US


Name your top 3 favorite confections and why?  

K.M.: I can't do that, I'm a chubby baker...I like it all!!!!




I would like to thank Kimmee Masi for the interview!

Heavy on Fashion at Shecky's Girl Nights out in NYC - Fall 2011

Hey guys! As you all know, I had a chance to cover Shecky's Girls Night Out in New York City.  I am a fan of Shecky's  event but this time around I found some great fashion, a celebrity sighting, and of course some great cocktails. Here is Heavy on Fashion at Shecky's in NYC!  

Vh1's Tough Love Miami @ Shecky's
Host and matchmaker Steve Ward along with fellow match maker and founder of Master Matchmaker Joann Ward (also Steve's Mom!) was at Shecky's giving out some great dating advice to all the ladies in New York! 




Don't you just love this dress. Fabulous! 

Here is a look at the crowd for Steve and Joann. Many ladies had some awesome question about relationships and dating. I have to say that Steve and Joann gave some grand advice. 

Sidenote: I am really loving Joann's style! 

When Steve took off his jacket, I knew he was  about to get down to business! He did and gave out some much needed Tough Love! Check out their site at http://www.mastermatchm…

Heavy on Fashion Goes to The Alex Soldier Showroom

Hey everyone! I had a great opportunity to visit the The Alex Soldier Showroom in New York City. I became familiar with Alex Soldier at a private showcase in New York City. When I received a email from Maria Soldier, Executive Director of the Alex Soldier Showroom, to come and check out the Alex Soldier collection in New York City. I was honored.

Alex Soldier has a vast collection of jewelry and artwork that is exceptional in craftsmanship and quality. From unique luxury jewelry with exotic diamonds and precious stone designed for the rich and famous to awards for Royalty. Alex is a creator and a example of true artistry in the world of luxury.

Here is one of my favorite piece from Alex's collection. This starfish ring is full of precious stones including diamonds. The best thing some of Alex Soldiers' pieces is that are interchangeable. Each piece has a custom key for each interchangeable piece.  They can be a ring or a pin. I believe the company is also working on making these…
