What’s a Quippie?

July 8th, 2009

So our most FAQ is, “What in the world is a Quippie?”

The concept/execution came to us AFTER our initial photo shoot. So that’s why they’re not included in the pictures you see online. (D’Oh!) But most of the people we talked to like the idea, so we implemented it.

Well, it’s a fortune of sorts. A tagline of cupcake humor. A little “haha” before you bite in. (Our copywriter wrote them. They’re funny.) Every cupcake comes with our standard line of Quippies.

“See? Carrots CAN taste good.”
“Any frosting on your nose is just leftovers for later.”
“We’ve been eyeing you too.”

But sometimes, people want something a little more personal.

We got our first custom Quippie order back in May for a 30th birthday party. It was for a nurse who’s originally from Texas. She’s also a mom to Ethan and an eternal sorority sister.┬áSo here are some of the Quippies we put into these specially made, individually boxed cupcakes for this Designer Event Chicago soiree:

“Save some for Baby E.”
“Nurse! I need a cupcake STAT!”
“You know you’re from Texas when . . .”
“LML. It’s a sorority thing.”
“Happy 30th to the Hostess with the Mostess!”

Foiled Signature Quippies

So that’s what a Quippie is. Fun, huh?

Hi. We’re finally here.

Thanks to Tristan, we’re finally up and running!

So that’s it for now. We’ll go ahead and blog regularly from now on. We’re just so excited to have a functioning website.
