We Just Got This E-Mail

February 10th, 2011

We love getting e-mails from happy customers:

Dear Foiled Cupcakes,

Just wanted to say thanks for putting together a Valentine’s Day cupcake assortment. Without it, I wouldn’t have known what else to get my girlfriend. But cupcakes? They’re EASY. They taste way better than flowers. The 12 special Valentine’s Day Quippies are pretty much like sending 12 different cards. And did I mention it was easy?

Thanks again. You guys are great.

-Mark (project manager and guy who just sent his girlfriend Foiled Cupcakes because it was EASY)

Thanks, Mark, for your order! We so appreciate you. :)
