Weather is perfect right now, and it’s going to stay beautiful all weekend, meaning it’s about dang time you GOT THE HELL OUT OF THE HOUSE!!!
Fall could not have come quick enough. I’m working outdoors right now in a crisp breeze, drinking coffee and wearing an adorable little sweater. I look so goddamn cute right now, really. (And if you want to come look cute with me, I’ll be working on the book at Hom in Bay Ridge for the next week, enjoying their fair trade coffee and free WiFi. They also have some pretty dope cupcakes here, if that’s your thing).
I think you guys should all put on cute sweaters and come see us this weekend- or at the very least an adorable jacket. Because, well, there’s just so much to do this weekend! And NEW FLAVORS! Like:
-We’re using up the last of our New Jersey sweet corn to make something special just for you- a popcorn cupcake! Sweet corn cake, with a salted sweet butter buttercream, topped with Iowa popcorn!
-We also got some gorgeous sweet potatoes on our last trip to the farms in Jersey- so Sweet Potato Pie cupcakes are coming back!
-A cupcake inspired by baklava that we’re still designing……want to help us out? Friend us on Facebook- we ask for your input quite often over there!
-This puppy right here
Remember this from a few weeks ago? This is the Laurenzano: fresh fig cake with goat cheese buttercream, fig balsamic gastrique and crispy prosciutto. This is the last time you’ll have a chance to see this for at least a year since fig season is just about done.
And of course, what would a very special day be without
CHICKEN N’ WAFFLES CUPCAKES!!!
You’ve heard about them, you’ve been requesting them for weeks, and tomorrow they’ll be back to knock your socks off. And there will be TWO spots to get them at:
As always, come visit our store at DeKalb Market in Downtown Brooklyn (138 Willoughby Street). This weekend is “Family Weekend”, so there will be lots of great attractions for the kids, plus DJs and Brooklyn Brewery for the adults.
Come visit us and 74 other vendors for The Brooklyn Local, a fundraiser at DUMBO’s Historic Tobacco Warehouse benefiting City Harvest. In the afternoon, I’ll be hosting a “Make Your Own Cupcake Bar” for the kids, where kids can frost their own cupcakes and add as many toppings as they’d like. And in true Robicelli’s fashion, no food dyes or sprinkles- we’ll have crushed cookies, homemade chocolate and caramel sauces, chocolate chips, dried fruits (because we’re parents too- we just had to try), and more!
Fun fact: last time I was at the Tobacco Warehouse was almost 10 years ago, when my right arm made an appearance in a Most Precious Blood music video (don’t try to find me- you’ll have a seizure). Had you told me at that shoot that one day I’d be in the same spot hosting a kids’ cupcake decorating table at an artisan food festival……well, I mean seriously, how ridiculous is that last statement?
I guess this means I’m officially grown up now. Because I didn’t get the hint from the marriage, children or businesses. *le sigh*
Anyway- come down! We look forward to seeing you! And please tell me how young looking and attractive I am! Thanks in advance!
