Bats and Rainbows!

Hey Everyone!

I thought it was time for a little update here! We have now been attending the Downtown Orlando Farmers Market for over two months now! It's been going great and we can't wait for the upcoming Fall months! It seems like the weather is finally trying to cool down here!

Each week, we have our standard favorite cupcakes on hand but we also try and mix it up with a feature flavor and/or feature theme! We have featured flavors such as Guava and Cream Cheese (Guava infused Cake with a Cream Cheese Frosting), Strawberry and Mango (Fresh Strawberry Cake and Carmelized Mango Buttercream), Banana and Nutella (Moist Banana Cake and a Nutella Buttercream), plus many more!

This week, we decided to get into the Fall spirit and do some fun theming around that! We also did some great rainbow cupcakes to go along with Downtown Orlando's annual Come Out with Pride Parade and festivities!

Here are some great pictures of our cupcakes and the market this week!

And here are some great pictures of our booth, neighbors, and where the musicians and Beer and Wine Garden take place!

This is Rico and Evelyn! They have been at the Farmers Market for the past four years serving up the BEST Mexican and Puerto Rican food I have ever tasted! They have been so successful at the market, that they are about to open a restaurant in Downtown. For those of you who live in Orlando, please visit El Coqui Mexicano on the corner of Bumby and Washington!

I promise to update this a little more often, but thank you again to all of those who continue to stop by our booth! We are always happy to see everyone out there!

See you Sunday!

Downtown Orlando Farmers Market - August 3rd!!

Thank you to all of you who came and showed us your support this past Sunday at beautiful Lake Eola! A lot of effort, time, and most of all, support from all our friends and family has gone into making this a true reality---so thank you so much!

Our first Farmer's Market in Downtown Orlando was a huge success and best of all--a TON of fun! Yes, it was hot and humid, but what else would you expect in the middle of summer in Central Florida?

It was great meeting everyone who passed through as well as seeing all those familiar faces! :)

Please enjoy the pictures of the first of many many Farmer's Markets to come!

"If You Like Pina Colada's..."

Ah, there’s nothing much better than feeling as though you are sitting on a beach in the Caribbean sipping on a well blended Pina Colada! Well, except if that was actually the case :)

Unfortunately, a trip to the Caribbean wasn’t in the mixer, but Pina Colada cupcakes made with fresh coconut were! Pina Colada Cake with a Coconut Buttercream and topped with freshly sweetened coconut!

These cupcakes were made from scratch using a fresh coconut and nothing canned or packaged; from drilling the eyes of the coconut, cracking the shell, and draining the juice to shredding and sweetening the coconut flesh! A bit time consuming, but oh so worth the end result! Yum!

And We're Off!!

Well, here it goes; our first blog post! Here at confetti cupcakery, we are very passionate about baking, specifically about baking cupcakes! For us, it’s quite therapeutic to come home after a long day and just bake; whether it’s our tried and true recipes or a new creation!

Great ingredients, amazing flavors, and a true love for what we do are three of the most important factors that are put into every cupcake creation!

We wanted to start off the blog with our signature flavors: A moist Golden Vanilla Cake with a smooth Chocolate Mousse Buttercream and an amazingly rich Chocolate Cake with a Vanilla Bean Buttercream! Both cupcakes are topped with our signature “Confetti” Sprinkles!

I also must point out that all photography seen on this blog is done by Christopher Patrick Photography!! (Our other passion in life!!)
