Five Fun Ideas for Valentine’s Day

January 31st, 2012
With just two weeks until Valentine’s Day, we thought it’d be fun to share some ideas we had to make the day a little more memorable:



1. Make dinner at home. Find some recipes online, pick up all the fixings at a local market, put on some romantic music and cook together. There’s no PDA when it’s within the walls of your own home, so go ahead – feed each other across the table, too.

2. Go dancing. Even (especially) if you don’t like dancing and your date does, you’ll definitely score some extra points for this one.

3. Take a train. Ride the El or Metra to a neighborhood or town you don’t know so well. Explore. Get lost. Be a little spontaneous.

4. Kidnap your Valentine. Get a room at a nice hotel and pack an overnight bag. Details are important, like remembering her favorite drink garnish or leaving a note in his toiletries kit.

5. Send a surprise to the office. Everyone loves a little attention at work. Nothing says “I love you” like “I love you in front of your colleagues, too.”

Get in on the Foiled Cupcakes Love Bundle and you can take care of #5 like *that.* And bonus: the first 100 people to order the Love Bundle will get a FREE 4-pack of Conversation Heart Cupcakes- just because we love you.

Enjoy!

The Weekly Quippie Challenge

January 28th, 2012

We’re doing a new thing around here: The Weekly Quippie Challenge!

For those who don’t know, our Quippies are the fun little taglines that go into our cupcakes. Our first set were written up by our copywriter, who came up with
“I love it when you look at me that way”
“Your taste buds might explode”
“I’ve been eyeing you too”
“Check your nose for any leftover frosting”
“Ice cream is evil”
and, like, 100 more.

Here at Foiled Cupcakes HQ, we thought it was time for some new Quippies – and we’d love your input. We’ll put a new Quippie Challenge up on our Facebook wall every week, and one lucky person each week who answers the challenge will get

- a FREE box of cupcakes to keep or give away to a friend, and
- their Quippie featured in our cupcakes in the future!

You have to be a fan on Facebook to participate and play. We’ll post a new challenge every week. Have fun!


Every flavor, every day.
