Lightly Frosted Favorites

April 25th, 2012

Introducing . . .

Lightly Frosted Favorites!

Our newest line of gift cupcakes, the Lightly Frosted Foiled assortment takes our best selling cupcakes and gives them to you with more cake and a little less buttercream.

Q: Is the overall size of the cupcake different?
A: No. The whole cupcake size will remain the same. The ratio of cake to frosting will be different.

Q: How much different will the ratio be?
A: We estimate that our standard line of Favorites (Chocolate Favorites, Seasonal Favorites, Classic Favorites) have around 65% cake, 35% frosting. Our Lightly Frosted Favorites will have about 80% cake, 20% frosting.

Q: Is this healthier for me?
A: We make no health claims.

Q: Who wants less frosting? That sounds craaaazy!
A: We posted this idea on our Facebook fan page and got over 200 responses via e-mail requesting this assortment. The masses speak for themselves!

Q: How much notice do you need if I want the Lightly Frosted Favorites assortment?
A: As with all of our Favorites assortments, order by 5 p.m. the day before you need the cupcakes, and we’ll deliver the next morning.

Q: Will they cost the same?
A: Yes.

Q: Can I mix and match?
A: At this time, the assortment is preset (6 flavors, 2 of each). We may offer a mix and match option in the future.

Q: How do I order?
A: Use our order form! The Lightly Frosted Favorites can be selected on Step 3 (Pick Your Cupcakes).

Any other questions, just let us know. Thank you for your suggestions and for your continued support of our shiny happy goodness! We certainly appreciate you!
