The Truck is DONE!

Sorry about that, Truckers. We really had no idea it would take this long to get the old girl back up and running. She's about 40 years vintage which is what? Like 70 in people years? Bottom line is she put in a good three plus years with no real major work to speak of, just tweaking here and there. So she was about due for something big.

We can't wait to see you all next week. We plan to be out around Tuesday/Wednesday (got a few holiday gigs to cater) and will let you know where and when Mondayish. Have a fantastic weekend loyal Truckers!

Monday, December 5, 2011

We saw our beloved Truck and it's almost there

No Truck yet but December's coming

Whether you're planning a small party for friends and family or a big end-of-year "thank you" for your corporate family, you can celebrate with the best cupcakes around.

TRUCK RENTALS
Why settle for the usual holiday ho-hum when you can rent America's Original Cupcake Truck? We don't just serve you and your guests fantastic cupcakes. We give you a memorable experience you'll be talking about all year long.

HOME & OFFICE DELIVERIES
Can't think of the perfect gift for that special someone on your list? Get them some fresh-baked cupcakes. We deliver almost anywhere in the state. Price and minimum vary depending on delivery location.

Thanksgiving Menu, Black Friday Cupcake Craziness

ON OUR THANKSGIVING MENU
Stop by our store in Downtown Bridgeport on Wednesday to grab your holiday dessert. We'll be open later than usual and will have all your favorite cupcakes along with our specials "Pumpkin Pie, Stuffing & Cranberry Sauce." That's Pumpkin pie "cupcakes," cupcakes stuffed to order with any of our delicious frostings and buttercreams and our own special cranberry glaze to drizzle on top. Hope to see you there!


BLACK FRIDAY: WIN FREE CUPCAKES ALL DAY!
Stop by the store on Friday and you could win. Each hour from 11-5 we'll randomly pick someone to win 1 dozen Chocolate Ruin cupcakes with rainbow sprinkles. 6 winners in all! But everyone wins, too, because our fantastic Chocolate Ruin cupcakes are just $1 each with purchase of any other cupcake(s)*. Why this craziness? Because we think we’ve got the best chocolate cupcakes around. So we’re putting our money where your mouth is…or something like that :)

*Limit one (2) $1 chocolate cupcake per customer. While supplies last.

Our Truck is not ready but our cupcakes are

Unfortunately, the Truck is not ready to roll yet but our store is open and we have all kinds of wonderful fresh-baked goodies including Marble Cupcakes, Rum Cakes and tomorrow...a Toppings take on Pumpkin Pie!

We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day but open on Black Friday with some fun specials. Stay tuned to find out more.

No parking Monday. Awaiting word on the Truck

We're hoping to get good news regarding the Truck today and will update you with word of when we'll be back out on the street.

On another more serious note, we're saddened by the tragedy that took place this weekend at The Game. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected.

Saturday, November 19, 2011

No parking this weekend. The annual conundrum.

Who do you root for when you have Crimson all over on your hands (and not just from the Red Velvet) but Bulldogs in your backyard? Hmmm.

Well, as always, go team!

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Catching the holiday spirit

We always know when the holiday season is upon us. Not because the leaves have all turned brown are falling fast and furious. Or because the inevitable barrage of toy/gift/car commercials have started. But because we see egg nog on the shelves again.

Something about egg nog just gets us excited and puts us in a really good mood. We want to buy it, drink it and experiment with it as only bakers can. What's not to love about eggs, cream and that wonderful and powerful but oh-so-temperamental nutmeg? We want to put egg nog in everything and we try. Oh yes, we try. Like last year's mini Egg Nog Cheesecakes and today at our bakery, Rum 'n Nog Cupcakes. Our twist on traditional rum cakes and ode to good old egg nog.

We hope you get to try this decadent, decidedly adult treat and that it warms you in all the right places and puts you in the holiday spirit, too.

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Our Truck's getting major work this week

Our trusty Grumman is garaged and having some MAJOR work done. Quadruple bypass major. We were assured that it would be ready and back in action within a few days.

Btw, we'll be at Webster Arena's WWE Smackdown later today. If you're heading there with the kids, be sure to stop by our booth and get some dessert before the main event.

Friday, November 11, 2011

What We Are Working On. And Not.

Hey Truckers!

Firstly, a special howdy to all of our new friends in Stamford. We had a great time with you guys yesterday and hope to visit again soon.

Secondly, we have been working really hard at maintaining our culinary/business integrity as we grow our delicious little business and if that means we keep politely declining Food Network's Cupcake Wars and Food Truck Race invitations then so be it....

Competitive programs like these can sometimes be fun to watch from the sidelines but if you really care about food and quality then we think it's hard, in all good conscience, to participate.

We are in the midst of finishing up Truck #2 (hopefully by the end of November) and there may be some other fun things by then also.

TCT

No parking this week. Lots of events

We've got a lot on our plate as it warms up. Lots of college and corporate visits as well as private rentals BUT we'll get out on the street as much as we can and will update you beforehand when we do. By the way, we are working on two big projects that we will reveal in the coming months and that we think will help satisfy your Cupcake Truck fix. Stay tuned.

WE'RE GOING BACK TO COLLEGE!
This week, we will be swinging by QU on Wednesday for a fundraiser benefiting Invisible Children. If you're on campus, we hope you will stop by, treat yourself to a cupcake and donate what you can to this cause (we're donating a percentage of sales and all tips). Then later this week, we'll be back at the UNH handing out goodies to hungry students there craving a good cupcake. We look forward to seeing you all again!

Here's to a Happier, Healthier Earth!

We've been pondering how best to celebrate the amazing planet we all share. We finally decided that nothing short of a fantastic new cupcake would do, one that could live on on our menu.

A HEALTHY CUPCAKE?

Have we got a treat for you today! Whether or not you're into "healthy" food, we have a cupcake that you're gonna absolutely lo-ove. We call it The Health Nut and it's full of wonderful stuff and is seriously delicious. It has NO dairy (milk, cream, butter), eggs, white flour, tons of sugar or any artificial flavors.

What it does have is organic whole wheat flour, antioxidant-rich organic cocoa, organic, fresh-ground flax seeds, non-GMO soy milk, non-hydrogenated shortening and margarine, natural peanut butter and organic coconut oil. And that frosting! Fluffy, creamy, chocolatey and nutty all at the same time. We have a limited supply in our store today and we hope you can stop in.

SATURDAY, WALK THIS WAY

We'll be sure to bring some more with us when we park tomorrow. We were invited to stop by Artspace in New Haven for a fashion seminar event called "The Urban Catwalk". We're still working on the parking particulars and will confirm once we know them.

IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS
Can't make it to the store or Truck this week. Here are two more simple ways to make a difference in the world. 1) Join the Elm City Market Coop. 2) Plant something. Even if you live in the tiniest apartment ever, you can still grow a tomato plant in a pot and enjoy at least one fresh, healthy vegetable for many months of the year.

Happy Eating!

Thursday, April 21, 2011

You could WIN FREE CUPCAKES!

The Truck will be out on Saturday night only but don't miss your chance to get a dozen free cupcakes. How does it work?

JOIN OUR EASTER "EGG" HUNT
Visit our store today, Friday or Saturday, stop at the Truck on Saturday night or at one of our private events today through Saturday and if you find Easter themed cupcake wrapper, don't just jump up and down for joy. Eat that cupcake! But save the wrapper. It's your ticket to a free dozen cupcakes. Good luck!

MORE EASTER TREATS
We'll be baking up some beautiful Easter colored cupcakes and making some Marshmallow frosting as well on Friday and Saturday. So be sure to come get your Easter dessert.

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

No parking Tue. What's up for Easter?

Easter equals marshmallows. You know, fertility, chicks (the clucking kind), eggs, marshmallows, get it? Anyhoo, we've made — by hand, from scratch — a batch of yummy Red Velvet Marshmallow Squares. Yep, another Cupcake Truck original. And as if that's not good enough, we've gilded the lily and dipped them in white chocolate and sprinkles. You just gotta stop into our store and try one!

If you do make it to the store, it's Two-fer Tuesday. So bring a friend and you'll both get freebies. If you can't make it, we'll see you at the Truck later this week and we'll try to make more of those mmmarshmallows and other Easter treats.

DON'T FORGET FRIDAY IS EARTH DAY
Lots of people have lots of great ideas about how to save the earth. We just try to the best we can every day to build a sustainable business. It's not easy but we do what we can like using natural paper boxes and sourcing all-natural, local/regional or organic ingredients whenever possible. We hope you will do what you can this Earth Day and every day. If you're in the New Haven area, here's an idea. Check out the Elm City Market Food Co-op and become a member. Support this effort that's bringing fresh, healthy, affordable food to local residents.

What a winter this is turning out to be. Are you as tired of shoveling as we are? Well, at least we're halfway to spring. Just a few more short albeit cold, wet, snow-capped weeks to go. Hang in there Cupcake Truckers!

Thanks e-fair friends!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at today's e-fair. Thanks to you we sold out early! For those of you who missed us and can make it to our store, we open at 5:30pm today for another event and we'd love to see you.

If not, look for the Truck to be back on the streets of New Haven and beyond starting early February.

The e-fair in Waterford today!

We're on our way to the e-list's e-fair in Waterford! We've got Chocolate, Red Velvet plus our seasonal January flavor, Maple Walnut and our new Malted Root Beer Float cupcakes.

Because of all the snow out there, we'll be inside at a booth. So don't look for the Truck today but do stop by to say hello and get some cupcakes to go!

We're there only until we sell out. So be sure to come early!

Year of the cupcake

We are always excited to start a new year. It's a whole new opportunity to meet new people, see old friends and, yes, bake more cupcakes!

We have lots of fun stuff coming this year including great new flavors, new goodies, new promotions, new Truck Stops and more. But you gotta roll with us to be part of it all.

Btw, if you're tired of the snow and cold, take heart! Spring will be here in about 60 days. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the e-fair next Saturday. It's indoors i.e. warm and toasty :)

Having a Dream

A few years ago we had a dream of creating a business that would not be judged by the glossiness of its advertising but by the quality of its product. With lots of hard work and perseverance, that dream became reality with the country's very first ever Cupcake Truck. So on this day when we celebrate the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we wanted to pause and thank you, loyal Cupcake Truckers, for helping us realize our dream.

Mark your calendars for the-e-fair, 1/29

That's right Cupcake Truckers, we're headed to the-e-fair at the end of the month. Of course, we hope to be out and about before then weather permitting but we wanted to give you ample time to put it on your calendars. Should be lots of fun with great food, music, shopping and cupcakes!

Can't wait till then? Stop in our Toppings store (1001 Main St. in Bridgeport's Arcade Mall, 203-330-5766) and get your cupcake fix. We're introducing a new flavor today...Malted Root Beer! Come on down and try it before the next winter storm that's headed our way tonight.

So much snow!

Hello Cupcake Truckers!

We’ve been getting a ton of the white stuff (snow not vanilla frosting) and the roads have been pretty tough to navigate so the Truck probably won't be out this week. If things get cleared up enough and we can make it out toward the end of the week, we will. So stay tuned.

Until then, don't forget that you can always pick up our yummy sweets (including a brand new flavor tomorrow and January's special flavor, Maple Walnut, this Friday) at our new store Toppings. It's located inside Bridgeport’s Historic Arcade Mall at 1001 Main Street. For those of you who've had trouble finding us, it's the building with the white glass doors on Main between John and Cannon streets. It's been recently renovated and we hear they're working hard on signage. So in the meantime, just look for the visual cues above and come on in.

We hope to see you soon!
