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.

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!

The Truck won't park today.

Sorry folks buy we just need a little baking break. Don't worry! We will be out tomorrow and probably most of next week as well. So keep checking this blog and do your best to stay away from the vending machine Twinkies!

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!
