Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is by far Moscow's favorite cupcake! So far, the beautiful city of Moscow goes through about 50 of these delicious cupcakes a week! It makes sense after I took my sons on a play-date to Ferdinand's in Pullman a few weeks ago. Ferdinand's most popular flavor of ice cream is . . . Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough! Well here she is in all of her cookie dough glory . . .

Pink Tea Extravaganza!

The Cupcake Company was honored to cater two tables sponsored by Debbi Dockins at the Pink Tea. Debbi is absolutely fabulous, motivated, and wonderful! She is just a whirlwind of positive energy! Also a great BIG thanks to Jade Stellmon, one of our favorite cupcake customers, she put us in touch with Debbi. Jade and Debbi are in the picture below looking wonderful! Jade just had a baby recently and she looks great!

We were also excited to donate 1 doz cupcakes as door prizes for attendees to enjoy. This is Gritman Medical Center 8th annual Pink Tea. The Pink tea raises money for breast cancer detection. Money raised at the event goes to the Bosom Buddies Program which provides financial support to women who can't afford to pay for a mammogram or other breast cancer services. I know that there are still other ways to donate to this wonderful cause either by contacting Gritman Medical Center directly or by purchasing a pink tea T-shirt. The pink tea T-shirts are in several locations around town.

Cupcake Care

Our cupcakes are baked fresh for every event without the aid of preservatives or stabilizers. They are meant to be enjoyed right away! If you are saving them to eat at a later time please keep them in an airtight container for the best results. You can also wrap your cupcake box in saran wrap, though you will get better results with an airtight container. Store your cupcakes at room temperature. We HIGHLY recommend eating them within a 8 hr window after purchasing. I've had several people ask about freezing them we've tried that. Ultimately, we've found that eating them fresh really does showcase our cupcakes as a superior gourmet product and that is how we recommend them, fresh. And really who wants to wait around to eat cupcakes?

Computer upgrade . . .

Sorry about the lack of delicious eye-candy. My wonderful husband has been upgrading our computer this last week in between Law school, our family schedule and his BUSY schedule. So needless to say that as soon as he's done making our computer a dream machine, I've got LOADS of decadant cupcakes to blog about. For now it's just me, Heidi O'Barr flavor: times new roman (isn't that the name of this font - I probably just ruined my punch line).

Anyways, we regret to say that we will not be at the Farmers Market this Saturday October 24 due to a change in our family schedule, but . . .


Come enjoy some spooky cupcakes, start your Halloween off frightfully.

Caramel Apple Pie . . . Again. CUPCAKE GIVE AWAY!

I know another picture of the Caramel Apple Pie cupcake in all her glory. I just couldn't resist. I just love this picture and she's so photogenic. Anyways . . .


I'm having a cupcake giveaway to celebrate 4 wks of selling out at the Saturday Market! Thank-you Moscow! And I am testing out a new flavor:

Chewy Chocolate Coconut
A moist chocolate cupcake with a coconut spread, chocolate cream cheese frosting, garnished with a chocolate dipped marshmallow rolled in coconut. Some will have marshmallow cream some will not. A few super lucky individuals will get both so they can tell me which one they liked better. What a great way to conduct market research, huh!

I told myself no experimenting with new flavor combinations until after the Saturday Market ended because we've been so busy, but I couldn't help myself and there's enough to share ;) So here's what you have to do to get your name in the drawing:

1. Make up a sentence or jingle that incorporates 1 or more of the cupcake flavors that are listed at the right and post it. For example:

Jade said "I know I'm just a Plain Jane, but if I don't get s'Mores of the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Spice cupcakes, I'll have to take the Rocky Road out to the river where I'll do a PB Cliff Dive into the Jupiter Sunrise-reflecting water. However, if I can get my Butter Pecan fix, I'll be so Oatmeal Chocolate Chipper that I'll Snicker Doodle all the way to the Black Tie Affair I'm attending in my Orange Dreamsicles." 09/30/09

In fact, if you can find a way to use all the flavor names I'll put your name in the drawing twice.


2. Become a follower of The Cupcake Company blogspot, just scroll down, add yourself to the followers, and post a comment letting me know you did. In fact Katelyn was our first follower so she's gets a Chewy Chocolate Coconut cupcake because she was the first! Yeah Katelyn!


3. Add The Cupcake Company's button to your blog. I just figured out how to create a super-cute Cupcake Company Button. If you scroll up it's at the right. All you have to do is add a Html gadget and copy and paste the script listed next to our button at the right. Then when people smell that amazing post cupcake consumption breath that you have and ask, "Where do you get such fabulous Cupcake breath from?" You can say, "The Cupcake Company, just click on the cute cupcake on my blog and check it out!" Then just post a comment and let me know your blog has a button and you want a piece of the cupcake action.

I will announce the winners tomorrow, Wed. 10/06/09 at 7pm. Good Luck Cupcateers!

Anatomy of a Cupcake

SO I've been thinking about this for awhile; it's just been so busy. SO Jade thank-you for giving me a reminder. Anyways, eventually all the cupcake flavors will have a link so when you have a cupcake craving that you need to satisfy with a custom order you'll be able to take a peek at the cupcake flavor of your choice. SO here we go . . .

Caramel Apple Pie

A vanilla cupcake with a graham cracker crust, a cinnamon and sugar caramel apple filling, topped with a layer of spiced apples, and cinnamon cream cheese frosting, drizzled with caramel. So Fabulous! This is one of my favorites, it was inspired by the neon green caramel apple pops that we all coveted when we were children!
