We had the wonderful opportunity to be a part of a Preakness themed wedding, set of course, on the day of the Preakness, at the wonderful Tampa Bay Downs. I love when the couple goes with a flavor for each of their tastes, it adds a nice personal touch to the dessert. This couple even had their son choose a flavor, since we had a vital part of the ceremony […]
We had the pleasure of coming up with a custom cupcake flavor for a very cute (and very pink!) baby shower. The mom-to-be had not experienced many “cravings” and she did not have much of a sweet tooth, since she was raised in Lithuania. One of the main themes in Lithuanian desserts is that chocolates are not very sweet compared to American tastes. Also, one of the things the mom-to-be […]
Here at Cupping Cakes, we love weddings. We get to take part in couple’s awesome day, and help make their visions into real delicious treats. This wedding took place in the Palma Ceia area of Tampa, and we could not be happier on how these turned out. The couple chose “His” and “Hers” flavors, the bride wanted a key lime pie cupcake, and the groom loved all things chocolate […]

Cupping Cakes loves to be a part of your wedding or any special event. Today we wanted to do a “Throwback Thursday” to a special day in Cupping Cakes history to Vikram and Sonya’s wedding. While every cupcake is special to us, this is our favorite event in our history. Enjoy some great photos of an amazing wedding for two great people.
Cupping Cakes was very happy to participate in the 2014 Gift of Peace Lunch for The Spring of Tampa Bay. It is their largest fundraiser for the year with more than 400 people in attendance. This gave us a great opportunity to come up with some great mini cupcakes and full size cupcakes for the major donors – as a thank you for their amazing donations towards a great cause. […]
We are sure that you’ve found a slew of wonderful Halloween treats that you want to make, but where to find the time? So we’ve put together a list of Semi-Homemade Halloween treats that are great for sending to school or work, having for the kids when they get back from Trick-or-Treating, or even to serve at a party. Semi-homemade is a great way to have personalized treats without spending […]
We had a GREAT time out at Woofstock this last Saturday. The event was hosted and benefited the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. We had a lot of fun giving delicious treats to the dogs AND people that attended! Below are photos of the treats we had.
Cupping Cakes, albeit our name, is more than just cupcakes. We love sharpening our baking skills by trying out new things like madeleines or macarons, or making a batch of the old favorite: the peanut butter kiss cookie. What is just as fun is making treats for pets, and it has great rewards – seeing those wagging tails and excited sniffs. But what if you want to make something simple but […]
Cupping Cakes recently took part in a Wedding photo shoot, and were happily given a little carte blanche on flavors and materials. The theme was “soft pink and gold – with romance,” the table was set with a great range of pinks, gold accents and soft romantic materials and textures. First, we chose a white and pink paper baking cup with a scalloped edge, giving it a soft romantic feel. […]
