Super Bowl’s over. Now to get talkin’ bout sweet, sweet love.
AWWWWW!!!! Yes, that IS two red pandas kissing. I went to the Prospect Park Zoo with the kids yesterday, and though normally when I get to the zoo these guys are always passed out in a tree somewhere, the cold weather totally brings the cuteness! These are the animals that have finally gotten me through my heartbreaking conundrum of “Oh God I want a koala so bad it hurts”/”Oh God why do koalas have to be rife with chlamydia”/”Will my husband be cool with me getting chlamydia? I mean, you just need to take antibiotics or something for a few weeks, right?”/”Will Matt believe I got the chlamydia from a koala?”. I’m on the red panda train now, baby. You koalas can take your STDs elsewhere.
Anyway, on a side note you should go to the Prospect Park Zoo and get your heart melted by the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen, and that INCLUDES crap on the internet. Now we’ll get back to talking about sweet love and our business.
Ok, just one more.
NOW to sweet love- namely, Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day ordering is officially open! As we did last year, we’re offering 12 cupcakes wrapped in a sexy bow with a handwritten card and delivered to your loved one’s doorstep for only FIFTY DOLLARS. You find me a dozen flowers for that price- and not only that, you can’t even eat flowers! (trust me) The only one eating flowers is the cat, and then they throw them up all over the apartment! Valentine’s Day= RUINED. Cupcakes, however, can be savored together while snuggling on the couch and listening to Miles Davis, or used in something Cosmo suggests that sounds fun but is likely awkward in real life (and I beg of you- if you try it, please don’t send us pictures. Again. That part isn’t a joke)
If you don’t live in NYC, you can still get a special Valentine’s gift for the person in your life- we’re offering our limited edition Chambord Brownies in our online store! Velvety melted bittersweet chocolate and creamery butter mixed with Chambord liqueur, swirled with raspberry jam. I’ve yet to see someone try our brownies and not declare that they were the best ones they’ve ever tried- and I’ll guarantee whomever you buy them for will be all over you once they try them. Unless it’s your grandma or something, because that’s just gross.
Note that mail orders need to be placed no later than Saturday, February 9th. All packages are going out 2-day shipping on Monday morning. Cupcake delivery orders can get placed til Monday the 11th, or until we end up completely booked as we unfortunately can’t make personalized deliveries to every person in NYC (we did book up last year, so get in early!).
And lest we forget, we are doing a one night only Valentine’s Day pop-up dessert bar at The Owl’s Head in Bay Ridge, and it’s already almost 100% booked. Don’t want to be pushy, but it’s a small place and I don’t want anyone who really wanted to go to be disappointed that they couldn’t get a table. Valentine’s Day is about love and eating fatty food and getting hammered, and no one is going to do that better than us this year. NO ONE.
Now here’s today’s flavors! No picture today, so enjoy another one of these:
