Our Signature Cupcakes List (Revamped)

I was having a really difficult time choosing our daily flavors for our new store. We were up to over 28 total flavors and I love each and every one. I simply would not and could not minimize the list because I felt I had a duty to our fans to offer each and every flavor every single day!

Then reality sunk in.

Unless  I could find a way to clone myself there was just no way we could bake all these flavors daily. A tear found its way into the corner of my eye as I narrowed our list down. (Please don't you cry too!)

Here is the newly updated daily list of cupcakes you will find at our new store in Winter Park.

1. Goodie Two Shoes
2. Mintzer
3. Teacher's Pet
4. Chocolate overload
5. Rock & Roll
6. True Love
7. Breakfast in bed
8. St. Elmo's fire
9. Ga-ga Guava
10. Nutty By nature
11. Bubble Gum
12. Dreamer
13. Cocolicious
14. Addicted
Of course, we will still offer our secret flavors, seasonal flavors and mini of the month so give or take 16 daily flavors!

Oh and don't forget our self serve cupcake bar where you will be able to create your very own signature flavor. I'm so excited! I hope you are too.

Butternut Squash Cupcake

With the Fall season among us, I wanted to add another seasonal cupcake flavor for all our fans. After taking a short birthday vacation to the Bahamas back in September and tasting a Butternut squash soup with cinnamon and walnuts I knew exactly what our Fall flavor would be.

Behold our Butternut squash cupcake for November and December.

And here are the key ingredients: (though you can add as much or as little as you want to taste.)

1 1/2 cup of Butternut squash, cooked (add cinnamon sugar to the butternut squash for an added flavor)
2 teaspoons of Nutmeg
2 teaspoons of Allspice

You add that to your regular Vanilla cake recipe and bake. You can top with your favorite buttercream. We use our cinnamon buttercream.

Turning regular desserts into cupcakes

Today my family and I decided to go to Tony Romas for lunch. After we all finished our salads, ribs and shrimp we took a minute to review the dessert menu.

(Do you see that beauty to your left?? I did and my tastebuds loved it. I am going to be really honest with all of you and admit that Tony Romas' red velvet cake was the best gosh darn red velvet I EVER ate! I almost removed my red velvet cupcake off our menu because I was ashamed! How do they do it?? It was velvety smooth and sponge like, warm and the icing was exactly what they meant when they said "icing on the cake" deeeeeeeeelicious!)

(Sandwhich cookie!! Bring back the childhood years. This dessert reminded me of the ice cream sandwhich cookies I used to eat as a child back in NYC)

(Bourbon Pecan Cupcake with ice cream. Yes, its already a cupcake but since we don't make ice cream I will redo this tasty dessert and make it a Jubilee cupcake. Who doesn't like Bourbon and pecans! Yumm!)

Now I am going to try and recreate some of these desserts into a Jubilee cupcake.

Our new Cupcake lounge due to open in November!

Yes, I know...I wish we were in the new space sooner. But inspections take time and so do getting permits. Our contractors at Mulligan Construction are doing their absolute best to get us in our space ASAP.

So hang in there with me as we all dream along about our soon to come wine and beer parings, Italian Sodas and Cupcake Bar. Oh November...Sweet sweet November.

Waiting is such sweet sorrow.

In the meantime, which cupcake toppings would you like to see at the cupcake bar??
