Adorable dipped strawberries decorated in a sports theme… just in time for a March Madness party or the upcoming Father’s Day. They look like something you would pay top dollar for from one of the large mail order companies but actually cost significantly less and are fun to make!

Making the sports themed strawberries is very easy and only requires five ingredients. To see step-by-step instructions and get the recipe, read below.

Here at Le Top, our Warehouse Manager Daryle made a bet with his oldest daughter Kiyera (16). Normally, Daryle loves his bald head, but decided it was time to show his love for the Giants…and his daughter.

He started growing his hair during the NLCS playoffs when the Giants clinched the division on October 3rd. He vowed not to cut it until the season was over. The moment the closing pitch landed in the Buster Posey’s glove to seal the divison title, Daryle told Kiyera that if the Giants win the World Series, she could shave his hair any way she wanted and that he would wear it that way for a day!! Well, you know the Giants won the World Series!! Go GIANTS!! Kiyera wasted no time after the game. With spectators in towe, she dragged Daryle into the bathroom to shave his head. Check out her masterpiece below! I think Daryle may be keeping this style for a while to show off how proud he is of Kiyera, and it looks pretty good on him!

For those of you who may not know Le Top is located in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.  Things are pretty exciting around here right now – our home team is in the World Series!  Today was “Giants Day” in the office – with an explosion of Orange and Black clothing – Orange Cupcakes and Cookies and the low hum of dedicated sports fans discussing the series.  We snapped some photos – so the world will know where we stand:

GO GIANTS!!!

A funny thing happened the other day. A potential vendor came in to our office to discuss his services. He saw all the photos on our walls and realized that our Le Top playwear line was one that his son modeled for back in 2001 (Le Top Wildlife Park collection spring 2002). He later sent me the photo and it happened to be the one I look at everyday while eating my lunch in our break room. What a co-ink-ee-dink!


Spencer now 10 years old (this month) and way too big to model our clothes. He is still a super cutie and also an athlete that loves to play many sports. Though soccer is the sport of the moment, his absolute favorite is baseball. Spencer is not just a one trick pony, as our former model is also a Cub Scout (currently at the rank of Webelo) with the ultimate goal of becoming an Eagle Scout. Go for it Spencer! We know you can do it.

His dad tells me that 5th grade starts soon and “he is very excited about it because it will be his last year before he moves into middle school”. I guess he is looking forward to a year of being a big fish is a small pond. Those were always my favorite years too!

Keep up the good work Spencer and be sure to keep us ‘in the loop’ about your life.
