Magic 98.9 HOUSE OF BREAD remote

Magic 98.9's April Powers was at the House of Bread grand opening, along with intrepid photographer, Magic's afternoon guy Brian Ross, as HOB unveiled a 100 POUND CINAMMON ROLL!

  •  
    Magic 98.9 was doing a live broadcast at the House of Bread. April was the dejay, but I had to come along when I heard about the 100 POUND CINAMMON ROLL they were going to make.
  •  
    Another Anchorage grand opening with Magic 98.9. Now it is official. 8130 Old Seward Hwy...just North of Dimond, and sort of across from Pink Elephant Car Wash.
  •  
    Here's April from the Magic Morning Show, with Christine Merki from our Sales staff.
  •  
    ...and we come with a bucket o' prizes. But now...the moment you've been waiting for...HERE IT IS...
  •  
    THE 100 POUND CINAMMON ROLL!! It had to be brought out in 4 different sections.
  •  
    Then, the 100 pound cinnamon roll (which smelled soooo good, even down the block) was carefully pieced together.
  •  
    And April finished doing a live break just in time to come see the ICING start to flow.
  •  
    Sweet, gooey icing was drizzled generously all over the enormous pastry.
  •  
    It took between 4 and 7 people almost 10 minutes to ice the cinnamon roll, which measured 46 X 52 inches!
  •  
    This 100 pound cinnamon roll used 10 pounds of butter and 20 pounds of cinamon and sugar.
  •  
    OMG! Got 2 call BFF ASAP! Am icing 100 POUND CINNAMON ROLL 2day! LOL!
  •  
    No...not an Alaskan glacier...its a closeup of a 100 pound Alaskan cinnamon roll. Take that, Texas!
  •  
    One of the many people at the House of Bread grand opening was ZOEY...the Greenbaby Packer! What an adorable little Cheesehead.
  •  
    For those of you who like the corner pieces the best...
  •  
    TA-DAAAAA!!
  •  
    A cinnamon roll so huge...it can use the Y at the beginning of the word...it's YUGE!!
  •  
    Yep...YUGE!!
  •  
    I had to get a baker to take my photo for my FB friends. My family has always LOVED cinnamon rolls.
  •  
    Thinking about a family roadtrip where Mom bought us each a cinnamon roll...and found out they were each the size of A BREAD LOAF!! Good memories.

    April, with John Baldiviez. House of Bread is his family's business.

    Look at April as she marvels at the YUGE cinnamon roll. The smell alone must have been 150 calories!
  •  
    April gets the first taste of THE BIG CINNY!!
  •  
    Proud HOB staffers now got ready to give free samples to everyone waiting in line. The place was packed.
  •  
    Lining up the plates. Everone who wanted one got at least the equivilant of a normal sized cinammon roll. Some even got seconds. DON'T JUDGE ME!
  •  
    Zoey the Greenbaby Packer and mom patiently awaited their free cinn roll samples. Okay...I don't know if Zoey is old enough to eat it, BUT SHE'S JUST SO CUTE so I took another pic.

    "I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMuffin."
  •  
    House of bread has a great ambience. Modern, with some rustic touches. Look at this Bucket o' Light.
  •  
    Mason jar hanging lights. Very cool.
  •  
    Mason jars...not just for jelly anymore.
  •  
    There's also a nice fireplace to sit by and enjoy your sandwich or pastry and coffee.
  •  
    Yes...COFFEE!
  •  
    ...coffee and a smile, that is.
  •  
    Free bread samples were also given out to people in line. I got some good ideas for my next buy.
