i'm buying a new house!

well, what i should say is that my boyfriend and i are buying a new house! i'm so excited; we close on tuesday. now, i'm also hesitate to say it out loud because our closing date has been moved twice already, and the buyer of my boyfriend place financing almost fell though, but as of right now, it is a go...
i love this house! i mean, love this house! it's my dream house because it is a comtemporary...i love how it isn't just a square house. i think it's perfect.

anyhow, i am moving next week...packing sunday and monday and moving tuesday and unpacking wednesday and thursday. you know what this means? i can't take any special orders next week. i will still be at the williston farmers' market this saturday and next saturday, but i can't fill any orders thoughout the week. and because of the article in the champlain business journal, i've already had to say no to 4 people who have called or emailed me asking for cupcakes for next week. it bums me out...i don't like saying no, but...i'm moving into my dream house!

flavors for this week at the williston farmers' market will be:

dreamsicle-orange cupcake with vanilla buttercream topped with an orange jelly belly;

peanut butter and jelly-peanut butter cupcake with roasted peanuts with peanut butter frosting topped with a dollop of strawberry jam and more roasted peanuts;

hot chocolate-chocolate cupcake with marshmallow buttercream topped with mini marshmallows.

i hope to see you there!

champlain business journal article!

the champlain business journal contacted me a couple of months ago to write an article about my little cupcake for (i was told) the october issue. i picked up the september issue tonight while at the grocery store and was surprised to see my face on page 14. although i didn't expect it to be there, it is a really nice article about my little cupcake. if you happen to pick up the september issue of the champlain business journal, you can read the article on pages 13 and 14 (under open for business).

it's good to be back!

it was great to be back at the farmers' market rained a little, but the market was still quite busy. i made a bit more today than i usually do, and although i didn't sell out early, i did sell out by 2pm! i was talking to lucky lady and new duds (both vendores at the williston farmers market) today. we were discussing options for venues to sell during the winter months now that the summer season is coming to a close in a month or so...i'll keep you posted as to where you'll be able to get your cupcakes after the williston farmers' market closes for the season...stay tuned. peach cupcake with honey buttercream with a peach slice drizzled with honey!

i'm back from vacation!

i just got back from vacation today. my boyfriend's parents rented a condo at mytle beach and we flew down for a few days...while we were there, i visited 3 cupcake bakeries. the first one was in raleigh, north carolina. the cupcake shoppe was so cute and the vanilla cupcake was very good.
the photo below is from a bakery called baked. there is a baked bakery in brooklyn and one in charleston, south carolina (that's the one i visited.) the cupcakes were just okay...they are frosted with swiss meringue buttercream, and i am not a fan.
the cupcake bakery below is called cupcake, and it is in charleston, south carolina. the red velvet cupcake was delicious! and the inside of the bakery is adorable!

for more photos of the inside of the bakeries, visit the my little cupcake facebook page.

i will be at the farmers' market this weekend. as of right now, i think the flavors will be:

peach: peach cupcake with honey buttercream;

red velvet: red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting;

chocolate mint: chocolate cupcake with mint buttercream.

i hope to see you there!
