Everything is home made in small batches
Why are your baked goods so delicious?
Because I don't use fat-free, sugar-free, or imitation stuff. I also don't use mixes or canned or premade frostings. Everything is home made in small batches from real ingredients.
Baked goods are treats and should be as tasty as humanly possible. Sugar tastes like sugar, butter tastes like butter, cream cheese tastes like cream cheese-- and those things are tasty! I use things like butter, eggs, flour, sugar, coconut milk, real bananas, walnuts, cream cheese... mmm!
Treats should be treats and while there are some people who will swear that "you can't tell the difference" when it comes to faux treats and the real thing, I heartily disagree. I can tell and I think you can, too.
Will you make me a fat free/sugar free blah blah blah?
See question 1.
C'mon, please? I'm diabetic/on a diet/pregnant/your best friend/blah blah blah…
Cupcakes are the perfect party food! No need for plates or forks or the hassle of cutting and serving. And people can eat them and hold a drink in their other hand! Cupcakes also feel fun and festive. They bring out the kid who can really, really enjoy a dessert in all of us.
Why is your white frosting not a bright, blinding white like Miss America's teeth?
Think of the foods that are that color, friends… let's see… there's shortening and … well, shortening… And shortening is not tasty. Butter is tasty. Real vanilla is tasty. Do you need a diagram?
Why do your baked goods cost more than the crap at Dillon's or Sam's?
See answer to FAQ #1 and refer to word "crap" in phrase "crap at Dillon's or Sam's".
Do you make fondant cakes?
That's also a nope. As I mentioned before, treats should taste like treats. While it can be beautiful and lovely and molded into infinite forms, fondant generally tastes nasty and is the consistency of chewy modeling clay. That's no treat!
One of you will doubtless want to tell me about your aunt/best friend/second cousin twice removed who LOVES fondant. I think you might be making that up, because anytime that I have been at an event with a fondant cake people do one of two things:
If you want a pretty but inedible surface, I suggest you put a something delicious that people will want to eat into a really fancy box.
Can I get some combo of cake and frosting or a cookie that's not listed on your website?
Probably! Just give me the specifics and I'll let you know!
How early do I need to place an order?
Generally, two days will be enough time to get your order done. Around holidays, the earlier the better! It's first come, first serve and if the schedule is full you'll be sad and lonely for sweets.
