No parking today - Snow's coming!

Remember we said we planned to park today barring any major snow? Well...they're saying it's gonna snow. So we're going to make some deliveries today then ring in the New Year, like you, with a glass of something bubbly or hot in one hand and a snow shovel in the other. Happy New Year Cupcake Truckers!

Thanks to Mike and Caitlin and everyone else for having us down in Old Saybrook yesterday. It was fun to see you and we hope you enjoyed the goodies. Have a very happy New Year "From Us!"

Countdown to the New Year

Hello Cupcake Truckers!

We hope your holiday season is full of warmth and love. If you're looking for the Truck this week, we'll be parking — barring major snow — on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day so you can ring in 2009 with a little something sweet. We plan to park Downtown New Haven somewhere. So be sure to check back in the coming days for the specifics.

In the meanwhile, here's something that's sure to add to your holiday cheer. (Thanks Jane for the cute photo!) In case you're all wondering, this adorable little one is enjoying one of our Chocolate Ruin cupcakes with Caramel Frosting. And, really, who wouldn't?



Also, a special "thank you" to Erica for including us in E-list, her "excrutiatingly opinionated e-newsletter of all things good on the shoreline". Be sure to check out the-e-list.com website and sign up to find out what's new and hot on Connecticut's shoreline.

No parking today. Know of a good stop? Tell us!

Thanks to all the snow, we won't be able to park the Truck today. We'll keep you posted as to the rest of the week. If it warms up and the roads are clear enough for us to do the delicate maneuvers required to park the old Grumman, we'll be out with our jingle bells on!

Also, we'll probably be parked in a more central location, somewhere downtown New Haven. If you know of a good location — say your office parking lot or what have you — e-mail us at baker@followthatcupcake.com or call us at 675-3965.

Stay warm and don't forget to send those holiday/New Year's orders to: order@followthatcupcake.com.

No parking on weekends.

We're enjoying a rare, snowy break and some MFK Fisher. By the way, we can still accept a few more holiday orders. So get yours in by e-mailing us at: order@followthatcupcake.com. See you next week, weather permitting.

Friday, December 19, 2008

Snow today(!) No parking.

Thanks for coming out last night Cupcake Truckers. It was nice to see your smiling faces downtown.

They're saying snow today. We haven't seen a flake yet but...all we know is it's no fun trying to drive a 5 ton, 30+ year-old, drum brake bearing truck in snow, whether, 2-4 or 6-10 inches.

So have a wonderful day and enjoy the snow!

Congratulations Melinda & the Burzenski crew!

You won yourself a dozen free Red Velvet Jones cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese frosting. Thank you so much for being one of the first to order our cupcakes for delivery and supporting our little mobile business through our very first winter.

Be sure to send us a picture of your cupcake free-for-all.

The Truck will NOT park today. We're baking for charity

We feel very blessed to have had our little mobile bakeshop take off the way it did over the past few months. So we wanted to do something small to give back a little to the community that is giving us so much support. That's why we agreed to bake for the Lifehaven 2008 Annual Holiday Party today honoring Pat Andrews and the Porcini Club.

Life Haven is a temporary shelter that provides a safe and nurturing environment for homeless pregnant women and women with young children. The organization is committed to assisting women in developing skills that will enable them to live independently.

Happy holidays to everyone at Lifehaven from The Cupcake Truck!

Delivery starts Wednesday - Caramel Day



Hello Cupcake Truckers,

Brrrr! Now that it's cold outside, WE WILL NOT BE PARKING THE TRUCK downtown as we did over the past few months. Instead, as we mentioned a couple of weeks ago, we're starting our Cupcake Delivery and we want to keep this post sweet and simple so that it's as easy as possible for you to get your cupcake fix. Here's how we'd like it to work:

1) You (or you and your co-workers) order a DOZEN or more cupcakes.

2) Choose from our DAILY MENU (see main page of this blog). If you need another flavor not on the daily menu, we ask that you order a dozen or more.

3) Order at least a DAY IN ADVANCE. We can only accept a limited number of "day-of" orders

4) You can pay with credit card, check or cash (correct change would be great)

5) As a special brib...um...incentive...anyone who orders cupcakes for delivery over the next week will be entered to WIN A DOZEN FREE CUPCAKES. Red Velvet Jones with White Chocolate Cream Cheese. Because that's what so many of you told us you love. And from now through the end of November, when you order 12 cupcakes, you'll get a baker's dozen. That's 13. That's a whole entire FREE CUPCAKE!

Place your ORDER TODAY FOR TOMORROW and keep those orders coming!


PLEASE NOTE:
Orders will be taken on a first-come, first served basis and we will call or e-mail you to confirm your order or let you know if we are not able to fill it.

Our DELIVERY FEE will be $3 for deliveries anywhere in Downtown New Haven, $10 within a 10-mile of New Haven and $15 to Fairfield counties and other nearby areas outside New Haven.

In case you're wondering if the Truck will be out during the winter months, the answer is yes. We do plan to come out occasionally when the weather is nice and will let you know ahead of time when this will happen.

Anyhow, that means....drumroll please...we'll be parking DOWNTOWN! That's right all you center-city New Haveners(ites?) who've been asking/begging/cajoling/pleading with us to come Downtown, today is your day.

Can the Truck come to me? And other q's.

We receive lots of phone calls, e-mails, faxes with comments, questions and orders and we'd love to be able to respond to all of them (really!), but we simply can't at the moment. Especially not in the mornings which is when we do our baking (that way you get 'em fresh).

BUT we are working quickly to change things and we wanted to take a few minutes out of our "crazy morning time" to answer a few q's that may be on your mind:

Q) I placed an order/requested the Truck for an event (yesterday, last week, two weeks ago etc.) and haven't heard from you. What's the deal?

A) Orders are filled on a first come, first served basis and up until now, we've only been able to get back to you if we can fill your order.

Q I understand but I still think you should call or e-mail me to let me know you can't fill my order.

A) We agree and are working on solving this right now. In fact, we have a plan that we think will allow us to start responding within a day or two to every single person who contacts us starting next week. For the rest of this week and for those of you who've been waiting on a reply up till now, we're asking you to please continue to be patient as we grow. If we haven't filled an order for you yet, we hope you will try us again.

Q) Can you come Downtown? To Science Park? To Wallingford? To Hartford?

A) We've worked hard to pick the two locations we currently visit and it's simply not possible for us to be everywhere we'd like to be. Parking is one reason. Distance, another. That said, the cupcake delivery phase of our business, which will start soon (once it's too cold for us to be in the Truck and for you to wait on line), will hopefully enable us to get you your cupcakes wherever you are in the New Haven vicinity. Or you can e-mail us about renting the Truck to come to your home or office for an event.

Q) How much is it to rent the Truck for an event?

A) We will be posting our rental rates/process/policies later this week and will have them on the website very soon as well. Stay tuned.

Q) Will the Truck be out for Thanksgiving?

A) No. The Truck will not park on Thanksgiving or the day after. We will do our best to fill your orders (a dozen or more cupcakes) during the days before and after the holiday. Again, this will be done on a first come, first served basis.

That's it for now. More Q&A's to come later.

Thursday at The Cupcake Truck

Neither rain nor weariness...Yes, we will park today and we hope to see you. Nothing like a little sugary-sunshine on a dark, damp, dreary day, right?

Ready for cupcake delivery?

We're almost ready, too, so we wanted to give you an idea of how it will work.

1) We will deliver a dozen or more cupcakes to your home or office in Downtown New Haven, the New Haven metro area and certain areas outside New Haven county (please ask if your area is included).

2) If you need fewer than a dozen cupcakes, we ask that you pool your smaller order for 1 or 2 cupcakes together with your co-workers or neighbors (it's the season for sharing and bonding!)

3) For orders up to 2 dozen cupcakes, our delivery fee will be $3 (c'mon! that's just 25 cents if you're pitching in with 11 other people). For larger orders and orders outside New Haven, the fee will still be $10.

4) Place your order at least 24 hours in advance. We will accept orders on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis. There will be a LIMITED amount of cupcakes available for those last-minute I-need-a-dozen-for-client/party/bribe-today orders but we can't guarantee these will last very long. We will do our best to get back to you to confirm your order or to let you know if we won't be able to fill it.

5) To expedite the cupcake dropoff process and ensure that you can enjoy your goodies as quickly as possible, we ask that you pay by credit card whenever possible (we will deliver your receipt along with your cupcakes) OR have your cash ready. Oh, and exact change would be really helpful.

6) As far as cupcake flavors, we will follow the same schedule we've been using over the past couple of months so you will be able to choose from the flavors available on your delivery day, much as you choose from what is available at the Truck each day.

Mon: Ultimate Vanilla, Chocolate Ruin, Red Velvet Jones

Tue: Sweet Potato Pecan, Chocolate Ruin, Red Velvet Jones

Wed: Salted Caramel, Chocolate Ruin, Red Velvet Jones

Thu: Hummingbird, Chocolate Ruin, Red Velvet Jones

Fri: Loco Coconut, Lemon Meringue, Chocolate Ruin, Red Velvet Jones

These will be posted on our website and blog along with any new items that we may add.

What else? We're probably forgetting something. Hopefully this post answers some of your initial questions but we are happy to give you more information via e-mail or phone.

In the meantime, keep checking our blog and watch for cupcake delivery starting mid-November!

"It's Election week. I need my cupcakes!"

We hear you. So we'll get right to the point.

Yes. The Truck WILL park this week from Wednesday to Friday.

We know it's sort of cruel and unusual punishment to make you wait a week to satisfy your cupcake cravings, especially when so many of you have told us that we've changed things. Elevated your standards and made it impossible for you to raid the office vending machine because your taste buds will no longer settle for Twinkies and other mass produced "baked goods." We do understand but there was much work to be done you understand.

You'd be amazed how much does not get done while you while away the hours of your day baking and chatting with folks about baking. For instance, you forget all about that whole taking-down-the-fall-
clothes-and-putting-away-the summer-ones thing. Until it's suddenly 40 degrees and your fingers are freezing along with your luscious Chocolate Ganache.

Anyway, the point is. In between filling orders, planning for our next phase and traveling out of the country, we've tried to steal some desperately needed time to get real life stuff done. How'd it go? We love our t-shirts but now we have sweaters and long underwear to wear with them :)

Okay, okay, on to the rest of the stuff you really want to know.

Yes. We will continue to take/fill orders for PICK UP ONLY at the truck during the week (LIMITED deliveries on weekends) as long as the truck is parked.

Yes. We will do our very best to return your e-mails, calls and queries in as timely a manner as possible.

Yes. We will have holiday gift cards that we think your friends, family and coworkers will love.

Yes. We will soon start selling our t-shirts and other fun promotional stuff.

Yes. We will have all your favorites (love that Hummingbird!) and add a new item or two to our menu. Think pumpkins. Maple. Spice.

Yes. We will soon start making cupcake deliveries so you won't have to stand out in the cold.

Have a happy Monday!

The Truck will not park this week – Wait! Don't click away! Here's why...

We've been telling you for a few weeks that we have some fun plans for fall and we gave you a peek at those plans when we mentioned that we'd be doing cupcake deliveries to offices and even homes in the New Haven metro area (and possibly outside). Also, we mentioned that we're working on holiday gift certificates and getting our fun t-shirts online.

Well we're taking this week — Happy Halloween btw — to finalize those plans and get everything ready for you.

We will spell out in detail how you can get your cupcake fix at home or at work whenever the truck is not parked sometime today or tomorrow and will update you on the rest as the week progresses.

You can keep sending us your cupcake orders (for orders of a dozen or more) for next week and beyond and we will let you know if we can fill them. They are still being filled on a first come, first served basis.

Hopefully you won't miss us too much? See you soon!

The Truck won't park today - we're off to the DMV

Hello Cupcake Eaters,

We told you a couple of weeks ago that we would be rolling out a new phase of our little business and that we would soon reveal the details. Well, soon is this week though not right at this minute.

Some of you may have heard at the Truck what we plan to do but for the rest of you, here's a sneak peek — CUPCAKE DELIVERY!.

That's right, we will be bringing our cupcakes right to your door at work or at home. As the temperature drops, we figured it's much more convenient for you if we took your orders for the office (so many of you act as Cupcake Runners bringing your lists with your co-workers orders) and deliver your cupcakes instead of having you come out in the cold and stand on line. Every day, Monday through Friday, not just Mondays.

We will tell you exactly how this will work by the end of this week. How and when you can place your orders and the rest. But in the meanwhile, we've got a cute new and nimble delivery van that needs to be registered and made road ready so we ask that you please be patient as we transition into this next phase.

THE TRUCK WILL BE OUT TOMORROW through Friday (and it will probably still come out on those nice winter days (who knows nowadays with this crazy weather?) when you feel like getting out and grabbing a treat.

So stop by tomorrow. We will have Chocolate, Red Velvet, Caramel and Sweet Potato.

Oh...we are also working on EXCLUSIVE HOLIDAY GIFT CARDS that you can buy for those hard-to-shop-for people in your life. There will be a limited number of these and they will be available around mid-November.

And our T-SHIRTS WILL SOON BE AVAILABLE ONLINE. Lots of you have been asking and soon you will be able to sport your very own Cupcake Truck tee.

How'd we sound?

Heard us on the radio yesterday?

We took a quick break out of our busy Monday cupcake delivery day to stop by the WPLR station to chat with Chaz and AJ on their morning show. We had a fun time watching Magilla eat as many of our Chocolate Ruin cupcakes as he could, and let me tell you he could!

Thanks for having us on guys!

Friday, October 17, 2008

The Truck will not park on Mondays

Hello friends,

As we mentioned last week, we've decided not to park the truck on Mondays. This will give us the time to tend to behind-the-scenes stuff like returning your calls and e-mails and responding to your order and truck rental requests.

We will park tomorrow as usual and we hope to see you on Sachem or Cedar Streets in New Haven for your cupcake fix.

Fall Schedule Change

Due to our desire to fill all the special orders we've been receiving, the Truck will do as many bakeries do who do not open on Mondays.

Starting tomorrow, we will NOT be parking the truck on Mondays. However, we will still fill and deliver your special orders on that day. So if you just can't wait till Tuesday, why not go ahead and start a cupcake pool with your co-workers, friends and family? Simply call or e-mail us with your order of a dozen or more by Thursday and we will deliver it the following Monday.

NOTE: All orders will be taken on a first come, first served basis. If we are able to fill your order, we will contact you via phone or e-mail by Friday to confirm.

The Truck will be parked on Tuesday, when we will do our darndest to park earlier and bring you more of the cupcakes you've told us you enjoy. See you then!

News from the Truck

Maybe you've noticed that we haven't posted much more than our menu and schedule lately. Yeah, we've been a LITTLE bit busy :)

But we wanted to take a few minutes out of our weekend (we're still working on that third weekend day thing) to say "thanks" to everyone for their support over the past few weeks. To everyone who's helped spread the word about our cucpakes and truck over the past two months. All our friends on the streets of New Haven, folks from Hartford to Fairfield and other cities in between who've stolen away on their lunchbreaks to find us, our supporters in other states and countries (from Canada to the UK, Australia and New Zealand). NBC30, the New Haven Register, the New Haven Advocate, the New Haven Independent and Play magazine (Did we forget anyone?). Your warm response has been amazing and we're excited to say that our little business is growing.

Of course with growth comes change, and we want you to know that we're working really hard to implement some changes that will address the lines, help us have a more consistent schedule and allow us to respond to your e-mails, calls and faxes faster. (If we haven't gotten back to you yet, we will!)

We will also be bringing you a more convenient way to get your cupcake fix. When and where you want it. Until then, we hope that you will continue to be patient with us as we grow.

The Truck will not park today (Thursday)

The old girl needs a bit of work and we need to take care of her as she's been taking care of us.

We will be back in action tomorrow (Friday) when we will have the usual Red Velvet and Chocolate as well as Coconut and Lemon. And for all those who've been asking, Marshmallow Frosting!

I love "cut & paste" but...

It's not always the best idea when you're in a hurry. What I'm trying to say is SORRY FOLKS! We were not on Temple Street yesterday.

We meant to say we'd be on "Cedar Street" and then wouldn't you know it, we forgot our trusty laptop so we couldn't even update the blog. (Note to self: remember to turn on feature that allows blog updates via cellphone).

Our Temple Street appearance turned out to be a fantastic treat for us but it may be a rare one. Our big old truck is not easy to park near the Green and if it were not for some special privileges — thank you to Ginny, Amy and the New Haven Traffic and Police Departments or making it possible! — we wouldn't have been able to bring our goodies to you just yet.
'
That said, we're working furiously to bring our cupcakes to all the people who work near the Green. Especially the folks in the Conn. Financial Center who've emailed and called and begged and cajoled. We are hoping that we can find a spot near to you at least once a week so that you, too, can get your sugar fix. So stay tuned!

Sachem Street and Cedar Street, you will still be on our schedule. So do not worry.

Have a great day everyone!

On our way to Temple Street

See you in a few minutes.

At the Truck Today (Tuesday 9/23)

We're making a slight detour today. Lots of folks have been asking us to come nearer to the Green. But of course, lots of you at the Medical School/Hospital have been patiently waiting for you cupcakes, too. So today we're going to try to find a happy middle ground — and we were asked to stop closer to a convention that's in town — so we will be parked on Temple Street, near the Omni Hotel, from 3:30 on. Our first stop is still Sachem Street and we expect to get there about 1pm. See you all then!

Announcing our weekly menu

We've been asking you to order at least 24 hours in advance but we realize that that's not easy when you're not sure what we're baking up from day to day. So in an effort to make things easier for you, may we present...drumroll please...our weekly menu. And yes, we will be updating our new website to include this new info.
Please note that we may still change a flavor from time to time, but we will let you know when we do.

Wow!

First of all, last week was an amazing week.

Thanks to NBC30's Andy Pergam's story about our little business, we've heard from dozens of people around the country. I mean from Detroit to Dallas, Seattle to Iowa, Maine to Florida. And quite a few places in between and some not so in between — like Calgary, Alberta (that's Canada!!!) And everyone had warm well-wishes and supportive words of congratulations. We feel truly humbled that you all like our idea and are inspired by our leap of faith with our venture.

To everyone (small business owners and cupcake lovers alike) who e-mailed and CALLED long distance, thank you! We wish we could bring our truck out to visit you but for now, we hope that you will continue to follow our story and that perhaps one day you will be able to come visit us in our corner of New England.

We'd love to get back to all of you personally, but as you can probably imagine it's not easy to do right now. So for now, as so many of you said to us...keep on truckin'!

We'd also like to thank the people who were there right from the very beginning all those weeks ago. What's it been like 5 weeks now :) Thanks for telling your friends and family and coworkers and for coming back again and again to buy our goodies.

And to Yoon-Young, thanks for your help spreading the word. We miss you in New Haven.

We're heading home.

Hope you are, too!

Have a great weekend and we'll see you on Monday.

We've parked!

We're turning down Cedar Street

Hopefully we'll find parking. Come see what we've got. First come, first served.

No parking just now. We're going round the block and will make a second attempt in a few minutes.

Btw, it's now 3:12pm not 12:42 as this post keeps telling me.

We have lots to tell you

First thing's first. We're officially creating a third weekend day or should that be weekenday? Anyhow.

We're not sure what it's called yet but we think you will all agree that you could use an extra day to get everything done that you have to get done. All those in favor of three day weekends, raise your hands!

That said, we will share all our news, views and random thoughts at some point over the next day or two.

Have a happy weekend!

It's Friday! What's at the Truck?

No Med. School Stop Today

We think it's because of the wonderful news story on us a couple of days ago but we met a larger than usual crowd on Sachem Street today and unfortunately we are sold out.

BUT....

Wait...wait! Don't click away!

As I was saying...but tomorrow we will absolutely be making a stop for you wonderfully devoted Cupcake Truckers (thanks for the phrase Rhona) in the Med School area and will make sure to keep your Chocolate, Red Velvet, Coconut and Lemon safe and secure.

Thanks for understanding as we grow and learn.

The Cupcake Truck has just parked near the Yale Medical School and we've got a few left so come and get 'em.

Yes, no and yes.

Yes. That was us on the news last night (Thanks to NBC30 for the publicity!). If you didn't get a chance to catch it, hopefully you can take a look now here: http://www.nbc30.com/video/17494375/index.html

No. We haven't raised our prices. It's still just $2 for our sugary, buttery delicious cupcakes.

Yes. We plan to swing by the Yale Med. School later today. Keep checking the blog and we'll tell you exactly where we are as soon as we find parking.
