Cupcake Craziness

Wow. Just wow. I had *hoped* for a good weekend with the Extravaganza, but I just didn't expect this sort of response. A very sincere THANK YOU to everyone who helped spread the word.

Friday obviously was a holiday, so lots of people stopped in early for a Box of Nine (or even two or three boxes!), inevitably on their way to a bar-b-que or picnic. Saturday and Sunday were much more steady, with lots of cupcakers wandering in throughout the day and evening. When all was said and done, we sold nearly 1200 cupcakes before close on Sunday. Who knew? Not me! Friday morning I began with just 300 cupcakes by 10am and didn't stop baking until well into the evening. And balancing 36 flavors is no easy task. At our height on Saturday at noon, we had 28 flavors at the same time. Check it:

So what now, you ask? Well, we will be accepting the rating cards (complete with your email address on the back for the Grand Prize drawing) through this weekend, so bring 'em in for your chance to win! The 2000th cupcake was also sold, which contained the winning medalion on the bottom of the liner, though no one has claimed the prize. If no one does by Sunday, we will draw TWO winners from the raffle, instead of just one.

And while we expect many more rating cards, some of the top rated so far are:

Lavender Sea-salted Caramel
Cocoa Nib Mint
Kentucky Bourbon Caramel
Salty Peanut Butter Toffee
Lemon Dulce de Leche
Lavender-Vanilla Bean
Macadamia Dulce de Leche
Peanut Butter and Jelly

Thanks again to everyone who came out. Cya at our next event: Five Course Chocolate Tasting Dinner, Summer Seafood!
