Frequently Asked Questions

What do you do on weekends?
We try to sleep as much as possible. Doesn't seem to work as we find ourselves waking up at 6 or 7 am. Which is fine with us actually as we like going for early morning walks or drives. But we also give the truck a thorough cleaning out, take stock of the past week and prep for the coming one. There doesn't ever seem to be enough time.

How do you like working together?
We really enjoy being together. And it's a dream come true to be able to do something that makes us happy and that makes other people happy together.

Where'd you find that great truck?
Around the corner from our house. It was pure serendipity.

Do you bake your goodies at home?
No. We bake them at a commercially licensed kitchen about 15 minutes from home. The folks who run the place are great to work with, and they were right from the beginning when we asked them if we could use the kitchen way back November last year.

What's in your cupcakes?
Really good stuff. All our cupcakes have all natural or organic ingredients, no artificial anything (except for our Red Velvet, which has red food color). We use local milk, eggs and cream. We use award winning European-style (high fat) Vermont butter and unbleached flour. We highlight these simple ingredients with premium Madagascar vanilla, Belgian chocolate, natural high fat cocoa, French sea salt, lemon puree and candied flowers (hey, I had to do something with that French degree), Vietnamese cinnamon and Grenada nutmeg.

Do you have drinks to go with your cupcakes?
Yup. We have water, soy milk (chocolate and vanilla), organic milk (chocolate and vanilla), frappuccino, Yoohoo, hot coffee — from locally roasted organic beans — and starting in September, we'll have a new drink we think you'll like.

What your favorite cupcake?
Hmmm. I think the S.O. likes 'em all. I like our Chocolate Ruin with our silky, smooth Vanilla Buttercream. I think Sweet Potato Pecan is my second favorite and though most people like it with our White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting, I actually like it without frosting.

Can I order cupcakes for a party or event?
Yes. Just call 203-675-3965 or e-mail us at at least a day in advance (for larger orders, please give us more notice) and we'll be happy to bake some fresh for you.
