Spring is in full swing. Seeing everything in full bloom with new growth is a special time of year. BC Cupcakery is in its springtime as well. We have left our current Orlando location for a temporary one in the same area but soon to have a permanent location at New Smyrna Beach in the Fall of this year. During the transition we are open and taking orders now as always! We are so excited to get to know some new cupcake lovers but hope that our faithful friends will still look us up as well in New Smyrna Beach this Fall. Just call and we will have your order ready to pick up when you are heading over to spend time on the beach. Some favorites this time of year are Lemon Meringue, Key Lime, Blueberry Compote or maybe a Black Forest. We are excited about our new chapter and will be posting more as the time nears with any additional exciting news. Happy Spring!
The Winter Park Farmer's Market was such a perfect place for a rustic, vintage style wedding reception for this bride and groom. The weather was not ideal but you would have never known it by seeing how much fun everyone was having. We tried to carry out the rustic, vintage theme that was requested with the tablescape for the cupcake/cake display and I think it was well received. The cupcakes that Cassandra chose were Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Banana, and Churro which I believe were a hit since there were hardly any left behind! Congratulation and best wishes for the new bride and groom!
Elisabeth and Michael were such a joy to work with. The selections of cakes they chose were very different and fun for me as a baker. The cupcakes were vanilla cake with blueberry compote, a black forest and a apple spice. The cutting cake was a white chocolate with a raspberry compote filling done in the naked style. This was all so fitting with the style and location of the wedding. The style was rustic and woodsy and relaxed and fun. Her bridesmaids were gorgeous and I actually got to see the bride and groom (which is rare) during the photo shoot - absolutely stunning. The venue is a hidden gem. The Acre Orlando is a rustic, beautiful venue tucked away in College Park. You have probably driven by and didn't even know it was there. You walk through the gates and enter a tranquil, beautiful setting just perfect for any celebration. I would highly recommend considering them for your next event. Elisabeth and Michael, again all the best in your future.
Two of the sweetest kiddos you ever want to meet (who happen to be my niece and nephew) have birthdays pretty close together so when they celebrated together and I was lucky enough to make them cakes for their celebration! Liam is a fan of dinosaurs as you can see and Bailee is such a fan of Shopkins we decided to make her a cake in honor of her growing collection. Their excitement and enthusiasm was contagious which made for a memorable party that was enjoyed by all.
That is the perfect way to describe this wedding. When I met with Gabi and Alysia they said they wanted
the theme of the reception to be elegant and timeless. I used that vision for the display and it was beautiful!
The Crystal Ballroom is the perfect venue for an occasion as this. It couldn't have been more elegant. The decor and colors they chose couldn't have been more beautiful. They partied the night away and I believe the
cupcakes were well received as there was hardly a crumb left. Gabi andAlysia, congratulations to you both!
Birthday celebrations are always fun. We have created an extra way to add a little kick to any party if
you haven't noticed already. We have a line of adult cupcakes that each have added flavor with the
addition of various kinds of liquor. We now have the ability to give a small shot on the side. If what
inside is not quite enough, give a little squeeze and add an additional small shot to add a little kick. Take
your party to the next level and impress your friends with this little added addition. These just happen to be
the favorite Red Velvet with Jack Daniels on the side and Strawrita.
Show your love to someone special in your life today. Everybody loves cupcakes, and when they are surprised with a pretty pink box filled with fresh cupcakes delivered especially for them they are always excited. Any flavor, or design. We go the extra mile to make your gift extra special. Birthday, anniversary, get well, I'm sorry, I love you or just because. There is no good reason not to send a box of cupcakes.
This is the time of year there seems to be a ton of parties going on. From birthdays, weddings, baby showers or graduations. It's Party Time! We have some new flavors that we have been adding to the mix to spice up a good party. Chocolate Caramel is not new but it is always a favorite. One that we have added that seems to be a hit is Churro. This starts with a cinnamon cake filled with dolce de leche, topped with a cinnamon buttercream and a churro on top. The other new one is a strawberry margarita. Here we start with a yellow cake with a hint of lime, fill it with a fresh strawberry lime margarita filling and top it with a cream cheese frosting. If the tequila in the filling isn't quite enough I have included a small shot of tequila on the side to kick it up a notch! All of our Adult cupcakes can have this added addition if you would like. Tell me your favorite and we will sure try to please.
A mini rage or me raging on minis?
I know that mini cupcakes are all the rage but I ask why? I know that I have been told that this is a way of trying several different kinds of cupcakes or I am on a diet, and I only just want a taste. Have you every just tasted one potato chip? Of course not! These little bites are just small enough to make you want more. Usually by the time you are finished you mind as well have just eaten a gourmet size cupcake! Every baker makes them, me included, but with minis you can't put any of the amazing fillings in them that BC Cupcakery is famous for. That's not good! I guess they are good for a quick fix but I think a better idea is to just get the one that you love so much in a regular size. Dive into that creamy frosting and enjoy the cake and amazing filling. Go for broke and make it a gourmet size...if you got minis you would have eaten that much anyway!
In reality folks I will make any size you want, I guess its different strokes for different folks.
What we have ready for Spring is Lemon Meringue, of course filled with fresh lemon custard and piled high with toasted meringue. or strawberry shortcake, which is vanilla cake infused with fresh strawberries filled with a vanilla mousse and topped with a cream cheese frosting. Ours aren't sitting around, they are made fresh when you order.
The Winter Park Farmers Market is such a beautiful venue and it was perfect for Claire and Michael! The historic surroundings were perfect for the vintage, rustic theme of the reception. The evening could not have been more beautiful. Congratulations to you both!
