No Truck yet but December's coming

Our Truck is still at the mechanic (who we understand has experienced some personal tragedy) but we are gearing up for another wonderful holiday season. 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.

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.

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.

Want to send a sweet treat to California, London or even the Middle East? As about our convenient and delicious mail order options.

Email your orders early or send questions to baker@followthatcupcake.com

Thanksgiving Menu, Black Friday Cupcake Craziness

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

In the meanwhile, we still baking—we're always baking!—and you can get our fresh-baked treats at our Bridgeport store. Hope to see you there soon!

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.

Our thoughts and thanks turn to all those serving in the military today but especially the vets. Have a wonderful weekend, Cupcake Truckers!

Don't forget you can always stop by our store located in Downtown Bridgeport's historic and recently renovated Arcade Mall. We're at 1001 Main Street between John and Cannon streets. Hopefully we'll see you there!

Btw, a very sweet belated birthday to our favorite little cupcake.
