Exciting News!

If you are a regular follower of yummy stuff, you will notice we have unveiled a brand, spanking new website that went live last Friday. This new website has been a long time coming and we couldn't be happier with how it looks! We're jazzed about the direct links to our blog, pinterest, twitter, facebook and flickr page- we love our facebook fans and twitter followers... oh- and our flickr page is so much fun to peruse! Now these fun features are all just a click away! 
Our new website also features a much more extensive cake, cookie and cupcake gallery- so you have more to look at when you need quick cake inspiration. Do make sure you click on our Flickr page often, typically  I post new pictures there every week!

Our new homepage... featuring our notorious red velvet!

Happy November!

It's here- the first day of November. I can't wait to tell you about the new flavours we are offering this month, 
but first, let's talk cake. Look at this:

The 2 beauties above are my favourites from the little while. Both made for some very special gals, for 2 very different occasions. These are perfect examples of what you get when you mix a little bit of imagination with a little bit of experimentation- the possibilities for fun, unique cakes are endless!

Ok, let's get down to business- this month we're giving you pure, cozy comfort food in the form of coffee and tea! "Why, what do you mean?" (insert puzzled look and quizzical head scratch here) "how could one possibly fit all of the delicious aspects of my morning ritual into a cupcake?" Well... we did! Firstly, a chai latte cupcake(!) A delicious, richly flavoured chocolate cupcake paired with a chai spiced buttercream- and lemme tell you, that chai frosting is no joke. It's filled with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and more! It's your fav drink from the coffee shop in a cupcake. 
Get ready Earl Grey fans (I know you're out there), because we did it! We made a delicious earl grey cupcake with the most amazing bergamont flavour in a light and spongy cupcake. It goes just perfect with the swirl of heavenly frosting on top: earl grey buttercream spiked with orange zest. I can't decide which one I like better-I'm a die hard Earl Grey fan. BUT, the can't-live-without-coffee-let-alone-chai side of me is really into the Chai latte cupcake. 
Swing by soon- these yummy flavours will be around until the end of the month!
