Happy Saturday!

Well the sun stayed out today, but its still freezing outside! So we are staying warm in the cupcake shop today with a lot of yummy treats! I thought I'd just post a picture of some cute little cupcakes for a three year old's birthday today! A pink and orange themed birthday! So cute!
Don't forget that I'm trying to GIVE AWAY cupcakes! Spread the word around! Give a little cupcake love here on the blog, and I'll make sure you get some cupcake love back! We love to hear from you guys, so don't be shy! You can also follow me on Twitter @Cupcake_Bettie and I also do the Twitter for @NewYorkCupcakes, so there's another fun way to keep posted! Sometimes I'll post up deals on Twitter as well, so don't miss out!!!

Hope everyone is having an amazing weekend!

A few fun extras!

So much going on in the cupcake store! The other day we had our dear friend Betsy from JavaCupcake for a mini Birthday party in the shop! We were also joined by our friend Carrie from Bella Cupcake Couture for Betsy's Birthday as well! So sweet that she chose us out of all the other cupcake shops to have her birthday celebration! We treated her to her favorite cupcake - the Park Avenue Peanut Butter, with a candle on top! So much fun! We had lots of girl talk and had a great time! Betsy took lots of fun photos for her blog! Go check it out click HERE. She is moving to Germany soon, and we will definitely miss her!

Here is a photo from a wedding we did at Lord Hill Farms after our event with them a few weeks ago! We came in and set up, and they had the venue set up in such a cute way! Twinkle lights everywhere, and each guests table had a different photo of the bride and groom! So cute!
 We also just wrapped up our busiest day this year so far which was Valentines Day!!! It was absolutely crazy in here! We had a line out the door all day long! If you stopped in to get some sweet treats for your sweetie, you know what I'm talking about! We had some fun Valentines cupcakes, and I'm sure these little treats made everyone very happy on the day o' love! 
 I thought everyone should also see this adorable little pup Daisy, who is Lisa's (owner of NYCC) little dachsie wearing her cute little cupcake bows! She can be our cute little cupcake mascot! If you have any fun pictures of your pets in cupcake gear you should post it on our facebook page! We love little critters here, and would love to see your pets all dressed up in CUPCAKES!! 
The day before Valentines Day, we donated some cupcakes and a cake to an auction, and the cake had a Valentines theme to it! I decided to go with a candy heart theme, and it turned out pretty darn cute!
 We also had a fun cake for a 10 year old's Birthday Party! They were going with a fun Hollywood themed cake! I went with a red carpet Oscar theme for the cake! So cute! I had so much fun making it!
Well I've gotten a few blogs out today and I hope I got everything covered! Next week I will be picking a blogger of the week (on Monday) so leave lots of love here on the blog!!! I love to hear what you guys have to say!!  Also, we are having a big vote on Facebook for the flavor of the month for March! We can't decide if we should do a Guinness Stout Cupcake or an Irish Mocha Cupcake! So leave some feedback on our Facebook page, and your favorite could be the one we choose!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! We have some weddings coming up this weekend so I'll post some pictures up! Thought I'd also post this picture of some yummy Candy Store Salted Caramel mini cupcakes, just to make you drool ;)


Wine and Dine!

Last night we made our way out to Woodinville to go to a wedding event at De Lille Cellars! There was some amazing food and wine, and about 250 guests who were very excited about cupcakes!!! It was kind of fun because it was right down the street from the house I was raised in as a kid, so I was in my home town for the night! We brought with us about 300 cupcakes, and the favorite of the night was a tie between the Long Island Lemon and the Candy Store Salted Caramel! 

We saw a few of our friends from the Seattle Wedding Show like Pink Blossom Events and Twelve Baskets! We were right next to Pink Blossom Events at the Wedding Show, so it was fun to see them again! And it was also fun to see Andrea from Twelve Baskets, she was a huge help in the evening trying to get us a great spot inside De Lille Cellars

We finished the night by tasting all of their amazing food! We had everything from crab cakes, to cheese tortellini (my favorite), to smoked beef, spinach salad, and lots of other tasty treats! There was so much food we almost didn't know what to do with ourselves! They had a white wine that was absolutely delicious as well, I believe it was a Sauvignon Blanc mix. I highly recommend it!

Well I'm off to do more blogging! Trying to play catch up, and there is so much to talk about! Hope everyone is enjoying this weird weather we are having to day!!! Don't forget there is one more blog on the way!


I'm a bad blogger!

Holy Moly! It's been a busy past few weeks and I haven't had any time to blog! I feel so bad! I'm back full time now, and I think the few months I was gone recovering from my broken back, my 'To-Do' list got a little out of control!!! You know how it goes right? So much to do and so little time!

So I'm going to load you up with a TON of fun photos from events that we've done lately! So I'll start first with Lord Hill Farms and Girl Power Hour! We had two events on one day, so we split our selves up and went both directions! First we went to Lord Hill Farms and took a beautiful display of cupcakes out to Snohomish!

All of the other vendors were fantastic to work with, and they had a delicious Macaroni and Cheese! We are all suckers here at NYCC for some good Mac & Cheese! Lord Hill Farms is a beautiful venue with a gorgeous view of a valley and trees out the top window where a wedding ceremony would be held. On our drive out we saw a beautiful Bald Eagle and an alpaca farm! How fun! We wanted to feed an alpaca a cupcake, but I'm sure their owners wouldn't be very happy with us! :)

That very same night we had a Girl Power Hour event out in Pnk Ultra Lounge in Seattle. We put our cute dresses on, and made our way downtown! It was a really amazing turn out! We ran out of cupcakes before the night was even over!

Pnk Ultra Lounge was such a great place to have a Girl Power Hour event, it was completely lit in all pink and beautiful! Such a great lounge to have a few drinks and have some girl time! They were featuring Bacardi's new Cherry Vodka, the drinks they made with them tasted like Skittles! It was fabulous!

The next week we had a wedding event at The Sanctuary in West Seattle! It was a cute little venue, with a fun balcony that reminded me of an old theater! We saw some of our friends there like Act 3 Catering, and Ravishing Radish!

One of the vendors there had these cute little citrus martinis! They were adorable! These little glasses were only about 3 inches tall! The favorite cupcake of the night was the I <3 PB&J! I think people were nervous about it at first, but once someone sampled one, word spread like wild fire, and everyone kept coming back saying, " I heard about this Peanut Butter and Jelly cupcake...." needless to say they were gone before we knew what happened!

I'm going to keep blogging today so don't stop reading yet!!!
