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!

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.
