There’s a lot of stuff to go over right now, so forgive me if I don’t get into the jokes or small talk or have any sort of command of the English language. Thems got orders in the whonow to properfy!
Hannukah: We are not taking any sort of online orders for Hannukah, since we have never received a single request to make a Hannukah delivery, and thanks to my limited technological skills coupled with my stupendous procrastinating skills, it takes me 16 hours to put together each order form we do.
We ARE, in fact, making special items for Hannukah that will be available at DeKalb, Union Square, AND at our retail partners! We have our Blatt cupcake which is our homage to sufganiyot, and we’re introducing a blueberry cheesecake whoopie pie for the occasion! We were working really hard trying to come up with a Hanukkah brownie and asked for suggestions on Facebook and Twitter, and everyone said “Make brownies and put latkes on top of them!”. So…..erm….NO.
Christmas Ordering: We’re taking a limited number of Christmas orders for pickup/delivery Christmas Eve. Click HERE to get your order in. You can also order in advance from our participating retail partners, but as always, terms and conditions are solely at their discretion. Cupcakes = PURE JOY. Remember that.
New Year’s Eve Ordering: I want to say that’s going up soon, but I really say a lot of things and then they get shot to poop. So how about I say I’m never doing a NYE ordering page and we see what happens! Or you can contact us and ask for an order. This year’s flavors are Strawberry Champagne, Chocolate Merlot, Car Bomb & Creme Brulee- any of which would raise the classiness of your party to an 11.
Gift Boxes/Corporate Gifts: We are offering these for pick-up at Union Square, and have decided that we still want to be able to put these together on a custom basis. Next year we may grow into a company that does everything by online form, where you’re nothing but an order number- but we don’t want to be that company just yet. We’re still a mom and pop, and we’re going to talk to our customers as much as we can until we can’t anymore. So you want a $10 box of whoopie pies for your cubicle mate? A $100 box of brownies for your aunt and her three teenage sons? Or maybe a few dozen cupcakes hand delivered to the office of your best client to let them know you appreciate them? Email me at allison at robicellis.com. I’ll do my best to design the perfect gift(s), and get them all freshly produced for you to pick-up any day between now and Christmas Eve.

Anything else?: But of COURSE. SOMEHOW I have totally neglected that tonight and tomorrow you can find us at:
If the last Night Bazaar was any indication, this will be THE shopping/entertainment event of the 2011 Holiday Season. Plus it’s the only appearance we’re making in Williamsburg this month since we’re no longer in Radish and have yet to hit the pavement and find a new outlet in those parts. You can find us with cupcakes, hot cocoa and other stuff only steps away from the front door, so stop by for a glass of cocoa to keep you warm while you shop!
Anything Else? No, Allison. Just post the flavors and you can go to sleep now.
