crazy cupcake week!

i'm going to have a few very crazy cupcake days for the rest of the week! i'm so happy to have been asked to do 360 cupcakes for a wedding this weekend...but, it also falls on a weekend where i already had a few birthday parties to do. don't get me wrong though, i'm super excited to have been asked to be a part of so many special occasions...still, 594 cupcakes in two days is going to be a sight to behold! i'll post pictures on saturday of it all :) xoxo

another great day at the williston farmers' market!

today was another fun day at the williston farmers' market; thank you everyone for coming out! although i didn't sell out today (i had 14 left), i did sell more than i did last week! and i did sell out of the maple walnut bacon. i think that it is so awesome that so many people were willing to give it a try, and that so many people were so excited about it! although there were a few people that did look at me strangely while saying, "is that bacon?" it was a definite hit, and i'll probably do it at least once again this summer. another hit today were the frosting shots! look for those every week from now on...

cupcakes take the cake blogged about me!!!!!!

how in the heck did i miss this...?!?! i've been reading cupcakes take the cake for about 5 years now, and they blogged about me on friday, and i totally missed it. must have been all the cupcake baking i was doing this weekend...

5 day forecast...

because of the farmers' market, i find myself checking the weather all of the time. so far, we've been pretty lucky at the farmers' market. the past 3 saturdays since we've opened have been pretty nice. but, I just checked this morning and they are calling for rain on saturday :( and this saturday i was planning on baking my maple walnut bacon cupcakes! oh, i'm still going to bake them, and they'll still be there, but i'm afraid not as many people will come out and get to experience their awesomeness because of the rain. well, i really hope that you still come out, and if it starts to rain we can all huddle under my umbrella :)

new cupcake prices...

okay, i hate to do this, but i have to increase my cupcakes prices a bit. the cupcake baking takes a really, really long time (between 7-8 hours for 120 cupcakes, longer if i'm doing donuts and cookies to add to the top), plus the time at the market with set up and tear the costs of actual ingredients; well, the math just doesn't work. the thing is, i love baking cupcakes and being at the farmers' market so much, i'd probably do it for free, but if i'd like to make this my full time job one day and save up to open a cupcake bakery, i have to make a little money. i think that if i'm going to do it, i should do it now since the market just opened a couple of weeks ago. so, the new prices will be one cupcake=$1.25, 3 cupcakes=$3.50, 6 cupcakes=$6.50, and 12 cupcakes=$12.00. if you've ordered cupcakes from me for an upcoming event, this price increase does not apply :)

graduation cupcakes

i made these graduation cupcakes for mary's daughter emily tonight. i had a great idea that didn't quite come out the way that i wanted it to...but they still turned out pretty :)

awesome day at the williston farmers market!

i'm both excited and disappointed about today at the farmers market. the good news is that i sold out, the bad news is that i sold out at 1230, and i was down to just 12 at 1145. you see, i look forward to saturday all week, and i actually didn't want to leave early. i baked about 2 dozen more than i did the last two weeks because of the article in seven days, but i had no idea that i'd sell out so quickly. it is so fun talking to people there and meeting new people. one girl said to me, "i was hoping you'd have the maple bacon," this means she's checked out my website! a few others said they're reading my blog. this is all so exciting!! everyone is so nice.

great day at the williston farmers' market!

i had a great day at the farmers' market today. it was so nice out and a bunch of my friends came by to support me. i sold all of my cupcakes except for a few vegan and a couple of cappucinno. i feel badly, but i don't think i'm going to make a vegan cupcake everyweek. there doesn't really seem to be a demand for them. however, i will still offer them to people who want to order them in advance to pick up at the market.

mini donuts!

last year i made mini donuts...about 100 of them to be exact. they were so cute and only a little bigger than a quarter. i've been dying to make them again, so i've decided to make them to put on some of the cupcakes for saturday's farmers' market. i'll be making a cappucinno cupcake with vanilla buttercream with a mini glazed donut on top. they are going to be soooo adorable.
