Cupcakes cancelled this weekend

Due to lack of response and extenuating circumstances, I will not be doing cupcakes this week. I will still be able to fulfill special orders.

Thanks,

Senseless Destruction


As I mentioned in the last post, my dear friends home was destroyed by fire a week ago today. This has been a really tough week for all involved, and my prayers and heart go out to all.


Regarding business - I had to cancel "Cupcake Friday" two weeks ago, as I was out of town, then again last week because of the fire. There is still a lot of work to be done to help my dear friends, but I am going to go ahead and do cupcakes again this week (May 29th). We will NOT be doing cupcakes the following week, but will resume again on June 12th.

No Cupcakes This Week

I will be unable to do cupcakes this week - sorry for all those of you that have been waiting - the home of one of my best friends was destroyed in a fire yesterday, and I need to attend to her needs, as well as fulfill a wedding cake order.

Thank you for understanding. See you next week!

Cupcakes - May 8th

Thanks for another great "Cupcake Friday"! For those of you that purchased, I'd love to hear your feedback. What flavor was your favorite? What flavor would tempt you next time?

On that note - just a reminder that there will be no cupcakes next week, May 15th. I will be out of town, but plan to have cupcakes available the following week.

Thank you to those FABULOUS people that are spreading the word about my cakes/cupcakes!!!! You are awesome! I'd like to reward those of you that refer people to me, so make sure you tell your friends to mention who sent you here, and I'll put you down for a free cupcake(s)! Remember, I also do wedding and celebration cakes.

"Sweet" Dreams!

Here Come the Gargoyles!




Today I did something that I think no-one else I know has ever done. I made a gargoyle wedding cake! Can you believe it? Apparently, it was a surprise for the groom, who is writing a screenplay involving gargoyles. I was pretty excited to do it, as it's quite different from what I normally do! The gargoyles were difficult, but it was a totally different experience making them than I thought it would be. I thought the faces would be the hardest to do, but they were a cinch, and soooo fun! I want to do more more more! Then came the bodies. I don't know why - but they gave me such fits! I kept starting over and over and over because I wasn't happy with them. Finally, I think I got it, but it put me WAY behind on the whole process. Thankfully, with Jeff's help, I finished in the nick of time. I learned a LOT more than I thought I would on this process - and it was great! I'm ready to do another one - anyone have a gargoyle-themed party coming up???????

Another Friday full of frosting!

Well, another Cupcake Friday is behind me. The mango-coconut cupcakes were MY favorite of the bunch, and I couldn't stop nibbling on the scraps all day! I hope all of you that purchased this week were pleased with what you got. I'd love to hear from you!

I'm so very tired right now - had a big free-lance article deadline this week, and all the cake fun, so I'm not sure about having Cupcake Friday this next week (May 8th). What do you all think? I will not be doing it the following week (May15th) as I am going to Camp Casey with the 5th graders. Should be an adventure!

IF I go ahead for next week, I will probably be doing Chocolate Mint Truffle, Red Velvet, and one other flavor.

Comments, please!

Thanks everyone.
