4th of July cupcakes

This year is half over, can you believe it. But the heat is on and it’s 111 today. Even though most fireworks are illegal, there is one city selling them and they are on every corner. So we turned the ovens off today and will celebrate with the rest of America and thank God for our country. We will also be eating cupcakes. If you didn’t order yours yet, you can still order them over the next 4 days for any parties you may be going to.

Here is a look at some of the ones we did.The first plate is Tye Dyed red, white and blue, with a white icing, and chocolate stars. The 2nd plate is Red Velvet with a blue icing and red heart, for our love for America and you the recipient. We also do a baked cheesecake in a jar and add blueberries and strawberries. Delish.

New Web Design completed on Easter

I am so excited to share my updated site with you. Even though I loved my old site, the designer quit and I was left with some things I couldn’t change myself on the site. But thankfully Jacqui from Wacky Jacquis designs came to my rescue.

She knew exactly what I wanted and was so easy to work with. She is very creative and quick which was a blessing. She also designed my new cards. I am updating everything on the site and business too. I am hoping by this summer I will have several things in place that I have been working on.

In the meantime, here are a few Easter order pictures including some Peeps. I have been a little slow updating my blog, but I will be doing so more often.

 

Easter Cake and Cupcakes

 

Some of my cupcakes are on my Palm Springs Cupcakes website. I will soon have these combined onto one site, but you can also visit that site. You can place orders through either site or by calling 855-222-4330. Most orders can be filled within 48 hours. All orders are baked upon order so that are fresh and delicious. Thank you for reading this post and I wish you a Very Happy Easter.  You can see more desserts on Twitter and Facebook.

Cupcake Tasting in Palm Springs has a successful turnout.

On Saturday, April 14th, we did a wine and cupcake pairing at Desert Wines and Spirits.  Desert Wines does a weekly tasting and chooses 6 different wines based on the theme or supplier that they are focusing on. Yesterday we had three wines that went with our vanilla bean and strawberry cupcake and three that went with our espresso cupcake.

Cupcake sampling at Miramonte Resort

I am uploading my pictures from our Cupcake Sampling at the Miramonte Resort while watching the Oscars. I haven’t watched them in years, but I put it on my calendar and of course I am multi tasking and getting some work done. Last week I showed you some pictures leading up to this event.

Last Thursday, I had the privilege of bringing some of my samples to the Professional Business Alliance’s 2nd annual business expo. There were over 25 vendors that are members of the organization and 4 additional vendors they invited in, including, Olive A Sudden, Savory Spice Company, Brandini Toffee and Candiland Dessert Company .   It was a 4 hour event and they had over 200 people come through the doors.

Cupcake Display Stand

My exhibit had Gluten Free Raspberry cupcakes and Red Velvet cupcakes along with Red Velvet cheesecake brownies.  Then I had some additional treats for display.  I really enjoyed meeting the members of this group and thank Margaret Hines for inviting me.

They offered hors d’oeuvres and beverages to the invitation only event. To get more information on this networking group go to Professional Business Alliance
