Day of Giving

We've been tossing around the idea of a Day of Giving or our Give Back Day where we give back to the community.  We know what we'd like to do - give cupcakes away on March 9th.  However, we don't know how.  Should we have it at our bakery where everyone that comes in gets a free cupcake or do we just go out into the community?  The day itself holds special meaning for us and is inspired by our mom who was a big giver.  It is a way to honor her by doing something near and dear to her heart.

This would be the first time that we've done anything like it and we'd like for it to be meaningful.  Having it in our bakery of course would be very convenient and make it easy to re-stock if we were to run out.  The logistics of going out into the community had us in a tizzy so we posted our dilemma on our facebook page.  From the responses we've gotten, going out into the community makes more sense since it is for the community.  We'd love to hear your thoughts.  Where should we go to hand out our cupcakes on March 9th?

Friday's Flavors

Hey y'all!

Here's a look at what we're baking tomorrow, Friday, January 18th:

Birthday Chocolate - chocolate cupcake with vanilla Italian meringue buttercream and birthday sprinkles.  Just plop a candle on top and you're good to go!  If it's your birthday, of course.  If not, just skip the candle :-)
  • Birthday Chocolate
  • Birthday Vanilla
  • Caramel Vanilla
  • Carrot
  • Chocolate Fudge
  • Cookies n Cream
  • Red Velvet
  • Sunny Lemon
  • Vanilla/Chocolate
  • Vanilla-Vanilla
  • White Chocolate Raspberry
  • Snowball
  • Cookie Dough
Phew!  It would have been easier to list the only flavor on our menu that we're not baking - S'mores.  Tomorrow would be a great day for a Baker's Choice if you haven't tried us yet and want to try a little bit of everything.  To order, give us a call at 404-949-0409 since we are past the 5pm day-before order online deadline.

Oh, before I forgot, we're baking inauguration cupcakes for one of my former co-workers who recently discovered my new job and has been faithfully ordering ever since.  Thanks B!

K.  Bye!

Hello 2013!

Hi Everyone!

Hope all sixteen days of the new year are going well so far?  The year started out really solid for us.   Let's just say that we were really, really looking forward to a new year and new beginnings towards the end of 2012.  So far, this year has not disappointed.  We started out with our friends at Saks Fifth Avenue placing an order for the entire year!  Imagine that?  Throughout this year, we'll be delivering cupcakes to them regularly on a monthly basis and we're just thrilled to have begun the year with such an arrangement.  This is something we kicked around in our heads - the idea of delivering cupcakes on a regular basis to our customers.  We didn't even have a name for this 'program' when we got the call to do just that.  So, look for some kind of corporate gifting program from us this year.  Still have no idea what to call it.

Also, just this past week, we posted on our facebook page that the president of one of the biggest, most recognized, brands in the world went to our lil' website and placed an order for his wife's birthday.  That was just out of this world.  Being that I spent an entire semester in business school doing case studies on his company and that they are all over the place, you can imagine why we're so over the moon that this happened.

New year, new resolutions.  Well, kinda sorta.  Here's what we're looking forward to as a team:
  • More opportunities to connect with our customers in a retail setting.  Not sure what that means, but we'd love, love, love to have more Bakery Days!
  • Classes.  We'd love to offer cupcake decorating classes and demos.
  • New flavors and new products using somewhat unusual ingredients as well as items from our local farmers market.  We're really excited about this.  Specifically, the thought of all the testing and sampling to come.
Here's wishing you all a healthy, happy, and successful year.  We are truly thankful for your support over the years.
