Flavors: Friday, January 4th
Well, the holidays are over, we are back in “ordinary time”, and our cookbook is due into Penguin/Viking Studio in 11 days! NOT STRESSED OUT! EVERYTHING’S FINE!
I have never been this crazy in January in my life. This is supposed to be the “holiday season for the service industry”, the four weeks where business is glacially slow, where we get to see friends, take day trips, and calm our asses down just a tad. And we are scaling it back in the kitchen a bit- until Valentine’s Day, we’re cancelling Wednesday cupcake deliveries, and will only be sending them to stores Monday and Fridays (this doesn’t apply to Queen City Cupcakes out in Patchogue, who gets their own schedule because they’re special). This is also because we’ve gotten so busy with brownies, whoopie pies, loaf cakes and hot cocoa we need a lot more time to produce them, so our online store remains completely and totally open.
Also because I’m pretty sure the book is trying to kill me. Seriously. My vision is blurry from doing so many fractions and I got a really nasty papercut today. If anything happens to me, the book did it. It’s also being released on October 17th, so mark your calendars!
To get yourself excited for it, go have some of these cupcakes today- they’re all in the book!
