Follow That Cupcake!

I'm taking a break from all things baby as I'm sure you are sick of hearing me go on and on! I'll just tell you that there is no news to report yet. Still waiting. My last day in the office was yesterday. I'll be working from home next week until someone decides to make their grand entrance.

So enough of that...Southern Connecticut has a fun new experience that I wanted to share with you. A traveling cupcake truck! This is such a neat idea. The owners refurbished a vintage bakery truck and each day they load it up with homemade cupcakes in amazing flavors like Chocolate Ruin, Red Velvet, and Salted Caramel. They then park in different areas and list them on their blog. You can then go purchase the cupcakes and have them topped with your choice of frostings and toppings ranging from the traditional chocolate and vanilla to marshmallow, candied flowers and edible gold (is anyone else's mouth watering?).

Believe it or not, I have not yet had the pleasure of visiting this truck (the above photo is from their website) but I'm hoping to have the opportunity to make a quick trip and get some fun photos while on maternity leave.

I do think I'll go a little crazy once I'm at the truck though! I'll be double fisting the cupcakes and licking my fingers! :)

Once again, thank you to everyone for all of your kind comments, e-mails and support! I can't wait until I have more substantial news to share. I have worked on a few small projects here and there but haven't had a chance to take photos.

I do have to say I'm loving the slightly warmer weather and hope it stays this way and only gets better.

Cheers to you all!

Oh my goodness!
This is a wonderful idea!!! I love it!!! It would solve a lot of problems! (for baker and customer)
ALSO! I bet I know where their inspiration came from!!!
The Super Duper Weener Mobile, IN Fairfield CT!!!
They actually are now in a permanent location for they are extremely busy! So I hope that the cup cake truck has such success also!

When I read the double fisting part, I had this image of a little girl with chubby little hands fisted as cake icing oozed between her fingers. Sorry, that may or may not make you woozy. I assure you it was a cute image. The cupcake truck is a great idea, would be cool to see how they make this work! Take care of yourself!!

Jenn said...
