I’m going to be on NPR – All Things Considered!

I’m really excited about a fun interview I did for NPR’s All Things Considered. So, if you’re a fan or happen to be listening on your drive home from work, you’re very likely to hear me in a brief segment on today’s afternoon edition.

If you’re not able to listen live, I’ll be sure to post a link to the recording that will be available online post-broadcast.

Big News about Small Packages!

You asked and I answered… A Cupcake Co is now offering Mini Sized cupcakes!

There is something about a miniature-sized sweet treat that has an appeal I cannot avoid. Everything is cuter in a smaller size, right? So, now I’m offering a size that is perfect for your parties where a smaller size is needed – children’s birthdays, open houses, finger-food gatherings. Whatever the reason, let us make a perfect mini cupcake for you.

A few important things to know:

  • Not all cupcake flavors are available in mini size. Please contact us for a full menu and availability.
  • Mini cupcakes are only available for orders up to 72 cupcakes. We cannot accommodate larger orders of minis at this time.
  • The minimum order for one flavor is 24 mini cupcakes. So, if you want 2 flavors, the minimum order will be 48 mini cupcakes.
