Valentine Adventures with The Sassy Cupcake (including my own personal cupcake ‘war’!)

February 24, 2011

Well… we can’t believe it was only a few weeks ago and how many pounds of butter, sugar and GLITTER!!!!
Thanks to Wendy Gregory Photography we have some shots of the fun (yet exhausting!) weekend!

It is so fun to see her walk in the room and just take over with her amazing skills!

She makes the cupcakes feel so special and important and beautiful- she’s like the “Glamour Shots for Cupcakes” lady. HA!

this would be nice to download to my plate...


So speaking of Glamour Shots, I think that the amount of glitter we use on our cupcakes (edible, of course!) could rival

the amount of hairspray used at one location in the late 1980’s…..

glitter, tan, pink.... "Valentines Barbie Goes to Vegas" says it all!

Here are some conversation hearts that we paired JUST FOR YOU to see because we thought they were so random.

Some of those conversation hearts are just funny!

By all means, we don’t mean for you all do not email us! HA!~ WE love our cupcake followers!

SO…. here is My OWN personal ‘cupcake war’ to share with you-

The interesting part of the holiday weekend was making a cupcake ‘parfait’ out of the TEN BOXES that were ruined when yours truly did not see a bench which was ‘parked’ right beside our truck. I say ‘parked’ because I have never noticed it before. I’m sure it was just there for the day. I did not see this bench until I ran in to it, flew over it and landed on my kneecap with the giant box of cupcake boxes flying ever so gracefully from my arms, rotating slowly as if pretending to be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson leaping through the air in an action movie. I’m sure that he would have recovered much better than my cupcakes (and I) did. The bruises are still there ūüė¶

A big thanks to the wonderful Bello Day Spa for lending me your office to cry in and for use of the ice pack! You were much appreciated that morning!

Well… enough of that!

You can check out the rest of the photos here of the cupcakes that survived their mission!

We are already looking forward to our spring cupcake events- for the Junior League of Eugene, multiple weddings, (and tastings for upcoming weddings!) a Cupcakes for Cambodia fundraiser for the NCU Missions team in March, Mothers Day cupcakes, Graduation cupcakes- the orders are pouring in!


Stay sassy ~

we have so many things to laugh at!

Cupcake Samples and Experiments

October 28, 2010

The Sassy Cupcake Orange County has been doing alot of cupcaking.  Free samples and experiments have been on the agenda.

These beauties were taken to a local elementary school.  The moms and kids sampled as they walked to their cars.  I think these were a hit!  Blackberry Pumpkin with Vanilla Creme Frosting and Pumpkin Cheesecake topped with Cream Cheese Frosting and dusted with Cinnamon.  Oh yeah!  One mom said that the pumpkin cheese cake was the perfect combo of cake and pie!  Just what I was going for!

If 50 of these weren’t enough, later in the evening, The Sassy Cupcake OC and her mom started talking about Great Grandma Brown’s signature dessert. ¬†Grandma Brown loved Angel Food Cake. ¬†When she made it (which was very often!) she’d frost it with maraschino cherry frosting. ¬†We wanted to figure out a way to make her signature dessert into a cupcake. ¬†After talking through it, we decided to try. ¬†My mom said that these would have made Emma very proud!

Grandma Brown, these cupcakes are for you!  We hope we did you proud.  These cupcakes are light as a feather with just a hint of maraschino cherry.  I call them perfect!

The Sassy Cupcake Orange County is getting ready to do a flavor of the week special. ¬†This means that our normal 3 dozen minimum does not apply! ¬†So, it’s your lucky day (or week!) ¬†The plan is on Monday, the Orange County location will announce the “flavor of the week”. ¬†You’ll have till that ¬†Thursday at noon to place your order for 1 dozen. ¬†Deliveries (within 5 miles) will be made on Friday! ¬†We can also arrange pick up when you contact us.

So, as we are gearing up, what flavors would you like to see offered? ¬†Leave your choice in the comments section. ¬†Our hope is to launch “The Flavor of the Week” beginning on October 18.

Make sure to take a look at our flavors page for inspiration or if there is something you love that you don’t see listed there, tell us that too!


October 6, 2010

We’ve been asking our faithful fans on Facebook to tell us their favorite seasonal drinks as inspiration for some new cupcake flavors. ¬†I have two favorites that I must indulge in at my local coffee shop (I’m not naming names…I know you know which one I’m talking about!)

I love my peppermint mocha and my salted caramel hot chocolate.

Those are worth every bit of digging through the couch and car seats for misplaced coins.

What are your favorites?

It’s been far too long…

September 28, 2010

It’s been far too long since we’ve posted. ¬†We’ve been in the thick of frosting and trying so many new recipes. ¬†But we’re back! ¬†We won’t take you back 7 months, but we will be posting some highlights from the last 7 months and will do a better job of keeping you updated here! ¬†So stay tuned. ¬†It’s gonna be sweet!
