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 […]

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 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. […]

We had the very great pleasure and honor to be part of a wedding this past weekend. Cupping Cakes supplied cupcakes, the cutting cake and two different types of cookie favors. The wedding was on the beach, and we continued the beautiful blues of the ocean and beach themes throughout the entire event. We worked directly with the Bride to bring her the best items to work with her theme […]

I recently attended a “Equal Plan” Wedding Show, which gave opportunities to couples of ALL KINDS to meet vendors that support love of any kind. This choice to support any event was a no-brainer for me, but it got me thinking about how some people still view cupcakes at weddings as “unconventional.” So I took some time, gathered some great ideas and information about cupcakes and wedding traditions. What this […]

Summer is almost here, and for us Floridians, it’s ALREADY here! Some Northerners may still be scooping up snow, but we’ve seen temps higher than 90 already here in Tampa Bay. We’ve got some great holidays coming up as well, Memorial Day, July 4th, and a lot of outdoor festivals and events. You know what works really well for summer parties? Oh yes, cupcakes. No cutting, messy knives, forgetting to […]
