It's been a busy couple of weeks here at NYCC... So much so that sometimes we joke about setting up roll away cots in the backroom because we're here so much! Lately we've been up to all sorts of fun things! Halloween (my favorite holiday) is coming up in a little over a month so we've been getting into the spirit by putting up cute decorations all over the store, and we just got all of our Halloween sugar toppers in! My favorite are the pumpkins and witches... Even the spiders (which I normally don't like) are cute!
Halloween cupcakes for a special order
We decorated the cases for Halloween!
In addition to preparing for Halloween we have just rolled out four new flavors! Among them are the the "Sweet Cherry Kisses," the sweetest cherry frosting on your choice of dark chocolate or vanilla cake with either a maraschino cherry or a Hershey's kiss on top, the "Ole Miss Mud Pie, a dark chocolate cake baked on top of an Oreo crust, filled with Ghiradelli soft caramel and topped with Oreo-mocha buttercream, a dollop of whipped buttercream, a mocha bean, and finished with a drizzle of Dilettante fudge. They don't make mud pies like this in Mississippi!"An Affair to remember, which is a fluffy vanilla cake with a creamy dreamy caramel frosting, topped with a pinch of brown sugar and finished off with a sweet caramel candy, and finally we have what is in my opinion the best seasonal flavor we've had yet; "The Big Apple," a vanilla cake topped with apple pie frosting and sprinkled with homemade cobbler crust! If you are an apple pie fan you will LOVE this cupcake!
Also keeping us busy is the preparations we've been making for Cupcakes for a Cause. As many of you know, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. We will be selling cupcakes for the cause and donating part of the proceeds to Cancer Care for Kids, which provides free services to children and families affected by cancer. To help us out with the cause, come into New York Cupcakes September 20-26th and purchase any cupcake with the smiley face sugar topper on it. Twenty five cents from each cupcake purchased will go straight to the cause!
That's all for now, but we have a lot of fun events coming up soon including the 3rd Annual Girl Power Hour and Runway to Freedom, a fashion show supporting new beginnings for abused women, so stay tuned for photos and highlights from the events!
