The joy of barking

We used to have a dog. A beautiful, liver and white English Springer Spaniel named Charlie Brown. A.k.a the Chuckinator

For two years we shared our lives with this lovable bundle of energy, watching him grow from a 4-week-old ball of fur to a fifty-pound young dog. And while it wasn't always easy — does anyone really like picking up your pet's daily presents? — it was a joyful time. From the first, uneventful (he slept the whole way) car trip home and all the subsequent car trips to the store/vet/groomer to the final car trip to his excited, new owners. That's what we remember most when we think of our Charlie. The joys.

We recall the simple things he enjoyed. A good ice cube to chew on. A game of tug of war with a dirty rope toy. A yummy peanut-butter-cheese-beef-"really-I'm-not-picky-so-whatever-you've-got-there-works" treat. A loooooong, slobbery drink of water. A brisk walk at 6am or 3pm or 11pm. A spontaneous run through a sprinkler.

We laugh at the witching hour. You dog lovers know what we're talking about don't you? That strange time of day when your puppy suddenly seems to go nuts and runs around wildly just, we're certain, for the pure fun of running.

We reminisce about when he first learned to bark. How that deep, booming bark suddenly emerged sometime near the end of his first year and how scared and surprised he seemed at the noise he'd just made. Then once he had it down pat, how he would bark simply because he could. For the sheer joy of barking.

We think that's what the holidays are all about. Not spending oodles of money on the best and biggest gifts, or outdoing the neighbors. But the simple joys. The joy of being with family and friends. The joy of just being.

Don't know what that looks like? Take a look at a dog.

Or take a look at ours. Below: 1. You want me to do what? 2. Snowflakes keep falling on my head. 3. Doesn't everybody love eating ice cubes? 4. Being nosy 5. The big tease 6. Got it!





For Chuck.

Closed Sunday. See you soon.

Saturday, December 5, 2009

No parking Sat. Rain/snow coming (!)

We have to cancel our stop at IKEA today due to wacky weather being forecasted. (Anyone remember hearing about snow today two or three days ago? We don't but ya gotta love that weatherperson).

Anyway, we're hoping to reschedule our visit to next weekend but we'll keep you posted. Have a great day Cupcake Truckers.

It's that time of year when we have lots of holiday festivities to bake for. Like the Life Haven annual Holiday Celebration today which we will be donating cupcakes to again this year. And a big fundraiser at Hamden Hall tomorrow benefiting the Coordinating Council for Children in Crisis. So your Cupcake Truck will be quite busy and won't be parking today or tomorrow.

We hope to see you Downtown New Haven on Friday evening and on Saturday at IKEA. Our exact parking locations and times will be posted in a day or so.

Oh, don't forget to check out all the holiday window displays from various local merchants around town. Ours is on Chapel Street (in the old Villarina's storefront) and we do hope you like it.

We swung by Sachem and it looks like we MIGHT be able to find a parking spot today. So we'll give it a go (we'll try to park by the bus stop) and we'll have some Vegan Vanilla with us. Tomorrow, we're heading to a new Tuck Stop, 450 Sargent Drive...Ikea!

Btw, thanks to the nice guy who came to the Truck yesterday and said some sweet things any baker would love to hear. "You know, I travel a lot and have had a lot of good cupcakes but these are magic!" We think so, too :)

Happy Friday!

Hope you had a great week, Cupcake Truckers. We're busy preparing for winter and taking care of business :) but we'll be back on the street next week in some old and new Truck Stops. Details to come. Btw, we'll have a new seasonal flavor, something "pumpkin-y" that we'll be baking every Friday this month instead of our sunny Lemon cupcakes which will be hibernating for the winter and back on the menu next spring.

Oh, thanks to everyone who stopped by the Truck for Halloween. We got a kick out of every costume and we've posted a few of them below but in the end only one winner could enjoy those 31 free cupcakes. Well...sort of.

THE WINNER IS...
"The Wizard of Oz"
When you split the prize guys, try to keep Toto away from the Chocolate cupcakes.
















HONORABLE MENTIONS GO TO...

"The Fried Electrician"
We love this guy's sense of humor.



























"Lil Kraft Singles"
Kudos to our little friend for a really "krafty" homemade costume.




























"The Smurfs"

Need we say more?






















"The Easter Bunny"
They're all cute but how can you resist pink fuzzy ears?






















"The Viking"
At least we think he's a viking.

Monday, November 2, 2009

Closed for a few days

We've got lots to do to "winterize" The Cupcake Truck this week and we will not be parking for a few days. We just might come out for a day or two later this week/weekend but please stay tuned as we will update you by Wednesday. Also, check back soon to see who won the Halloween costume contest and 31 free cupcakes.

Enjoy that extra hour and have a great start of the week!

We're running behind. Cedar St. @ 4pm

We know the rain's hard to deal with. It's hard for us too but driving our vintage Truck in this kind of weather is sticky...like our Caramel Apple cupcakes. We want to get all your cupcakes to your safely. So please bear with us for just a few more minutes.

YNHH (Cedar & York) @ 3:30pm today

Come enjoy your Wednesday faves and try our new Caramel Apple cupcakes today through Saturday at The Cupcake Truck. It's crammed full of locally grown apples and drizzled with yummy, made-from-scratch caramel. So you can eat it "naked" (i.e. without frosting) or with any of our usual delicious toppings.

Btw, thanks to Tory Burch for having us yesterday. We had a blast and hope you did, too.

Thanks to Mary-Kate, Steve and Nancy for helping to organize our stop at the New Haven Register yesterday. A new Truck Stop is always fun and a great learning experience for us and we hope you all enjoyed our visit too. As "bookies"...er...book lovers...we hope to be able to browse and take home a few books ourselves next time.
