Madison is OPEN!

Today is our first day of opening down at our new Seattle location! It's so exciting! The store finally looks like it belongs to us!!! 
Last night was a crazy night trying to get some of the little things set up, and our contractors George (we like to call him Georgie Porgie) and Reggie were helping us hang our aprons across our 'clothes line'. 
It was kind of fun watching these two manly men hanging the aprons in just the right way! We couldn't have opened this place up with out them!!! Thanks guys!

And right when we opened our doors, two of our favorite customers Pam & and her daughter visiting from San Diego, came in and bought the first cupcakes out of the shop! 
We just love these ladies! We even put up our very first dollar we made from them!!! Thanks ladies! You are the best! 
So I've got to run, still a lot of things to do in this new little shop! So come on by and treat yourself to something sweet! 

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

Let there be LIGHT!

Tuesday Blues-day?

Where is the sun? I don't think Mother Nature got the memo that Summer has started! WHERE IS THE SUN????

Well we have been very busy lately with beautiful summer weddings and we are getting ready to start construction in the new shop! We have been going back and forth between the new Madison shop and the Bellevue shop quite frequently lately, and its slowly starting to take a New York Cupcake shape! 
 We haven't changed out all the signage yet, but we are teasing everyone with this guy for a bit! Also, if you are in the area stop by and say 'Hi' if you are there! We are trying to pass out samples of cupcakes every time we are down there, so stop on by if you are in the area! 
 Sample cupcakes!!!
 Here is the big chandelier that is going to go in the new store!!!
 Lisa working hard and scrubbing the floor! But we love the black and white checker that is just like our Bellevue store!
The past few weeks we have also been doing a LOT of summer weddings! I think this Saturday alone we have seven set ups! Oooh! That is a lot of cupcakes! So check back next week for a lot of cupcake pictures! 
If you are planning a wedding, or know someone who is, don't forget that we do complimentary wedding tastings! To set up a wedding tasting, take a look at our website and see what flavors you would like to try, and pick up to 10 flavors and give us a call to set an appointment! We can take up to 3 people per tasting! 

Recently we did an event for the opening of 'Horrible Bosses' and we brought about 200 mini cupcakes! We brought are sweet photographer Amanda Waltman from Art of Subtlety Photography! It was kind of funny to see a movie about horrible bosses, with my not so horrible boss! If you haven't seen the movie already you should check it out! We were all dying laughing through the entire movie!

 Also, at the new store we made two new friends! The first is a cute little grey kitty cat who we named Cupcake! We aren't sure if he has a home, but he sure was a friendly little bugger! We left the back door open while we were cleaning the store, and he sat at the door and hung out for a few hours! Such a happy little fellow! So if you stop by and see him, make sure to say hi to Cupcake too! 

Our Second new friend is a little man named Evan! He is the coolest dude around! He tried our cupcakes and told us that we were 895% good! What an awesome compliment! We're hoping to see more of this little guy around, cause he is a funny little man! We love him!
 Well I'm off to go decorate lots of cute cupcakes!

Hope your all having a sweet day!
