It’s a big news day! I’ve had so much news lately that it’s been extremely hard to write a totally idiotic blog post that has pretty much nothing to do with the actual business. This is weird for me too, guys.
First item of business…

This week, we’re the featured food sale on Fab.com! You can get up to 25% off our signature hot cocoa, brownies & loaf cake assortments, and have them shipped to you no matter where you live. This sale lasts only until inventory runs out, and our prices will not be this low again this year, so get while the getting is good.
Of course, Robicelli’s baked goods are the perfect gift for any of your friends, relatives, co-workers, next door neightbors, business associates, girlfriends parents, friendly lady who runs the laundromat, mailmen, receptionist at the dentists office, or friends whose pants you desperately want to get into but can’t because you’re socially awkward and fear rejection. But what if you don’t want to just send a box of brownies to their front door- what if you’re showing up at their door, in person, and want to be holding a big box of cupcakes?
If that’s the case, you can place your order directly with us and we’ll bring the cupcakes straight to you! We’ve already put up the Hanukkah ordering, which allows you to order cupcakes for any day from this Friday to the next one. And today, I’ve officially opened Christmas ordering, and this years Christmas menu officially determined by our fans on Facebook.
This year’s Christmas flavors, as chosen by you, are:
- Cranberry Gingerbread: gingerbread cake with vanilla buttercream and fresh cranberry compote
- Creme Brulee: vanilla buttercrea, vanilla custard buttercream, caramelized sugar
- Port Poached Pear: Pear cake, vanilla buttercream, port wine poached pear, port wine reduction
- Chocolate Candy Cane: Mint chocolate chip cake, peppermint buttercream, crushed candy canes
But wait…..there’s more!
- Classic Vanila Marshmallow Whoopie Pies
- Chocolate Chestnut Whoope Pies: filled with vanilla buttercream, chopped roasted & candied chestnuts and chocolate chips
- Eggnog Whoopie Pies: filled with eggnog & bourbon buttercream and freshly grated nutmeg
- Classic Sea Salt Brownies
- Moverly Brownies: with Scotch whiskey, roasted walnuts & a touch of espresso
Order a box or two of those for Christmas Day, and just see how nice your Christmas presents get the following year.
Now to today- we’ve got a bit of a holiday over here in the Robicelli’s household today: Matt’s mom’s birthday. My mother-in-law is one of the best home bakers I know, someone we’ve implored to enter the Pillsbury Bake-Off more times than we could count, someone who’s Christmas cookies are anxiously anticipated 11 months out of the year. My favorite is a cookie she makes that starts off with a lemon & almond dough which she wraps around Hershey’s Kisses, bakes, and then rolls in powdered sugar. I’ll eat an entire tin of those cookies in a matter of minutes.
Lucky for you guys who think that sounds delicious but aren’t related to us so you can’t get those cookies- in honor of her birthday, we’ve turned it into a cupcake (of COURSE we did!). This will be available this week only, so go out and find the Gramma Jean. It will make you wish Jean was YOUR mother-in-law.
NEW! Gramma Jean: Lemon almond cake, chocolate pudding, vanilla buttercream, roasted almonds, chocolate chips
Bourbon Caramel Apple: Apple cake, bourbon salted caramel buttercream, roasted apple, bourbon caramel drizzle
Pumpkin Spice Latte: Pumpkin cake, espresso mascarpone buttercream, fall spiced crushed chocolate espresso beans
Chocolate Candy Cane: Mint chocolate chip cake, peppermint buttercream, crushed candy canes
