Flavors: Friday, November 15th
Three big chances to see us these next few days, in the event you can’t wait for our store to open in a little more than a week. Yes, you read that right. We’ll be open the week of Thanksgiving, so you people should probably start following me on Twitter now so you don’t miss the Britney-circa-2007 crap that will inevitably happen any day now.
TODAY: Come Be On TV With Us!
Yay TV! We’re shooting a bit for VH1’s Morning Buzz to air next week, and we need you guys to come down so they can shoot you guys eating cupcakes all sexy like in sloooooowwww moooootioooon. Or something like that.
Even more exciting: the cupcakes we’re making are not rotation flavors - in fact, they won’t be available anywhere else but at today’s shoot. So if you want to get your hands on a pumpkin cupcake filled with white chocolate cheesecake mousse, topped with bourbon caramel buttercream, and sprinkled with salted glazed pecans, you better come see us at Tazza, 72 Clark Street, in Brooklyn Heights today between 2 and 5pm.
TOMORROW: Signing & Samples at the Union Square Greenmarket
We’ll be there from 11-2 singing books, answering all your holiday baking questions, and demoing some of the new pound cake flavors we’ll be shipping this holiday. I’ve only lived in New York City, but I’m pretty confident in saying that Union Square is the greatest Greenmarket in all of America — though last week they hosted Alice Waters and then went downhill pretty quickly by booking us as the follow-up. I’m only assuming we got the slot because 2 Chainz wasn’t available, but hell, I’ll take it!
SUNDAY: Singing, samples, and talking about ? at The Brooklyn Public Library at Grand Army Plaza
Adding this event to the one from last week at the 92nd Street Y, all those years of public schooling, and rooting for the Yankees back in the 1980s — I’m thismuchcloser to the coveted “ultimate native New Yorker” belt. You better watch your back, Woody Allen!
I actually have no idea what we’re going to be doing at this one yet, but there will be free cake if you get there early enough.
After this week, the next shot you’ll have at seeing us and getting a book signed is at our shop opening, which is on Monday, November 25th. More about that next week- pinky swear. Now I’m going to sleep for about 40 minuted before I wake up having a panic attack over picking the right paper towel dispensers, because that’s my life now.
