Woooo! I really don’t think there are words for how tired I am right now. I have been in the kitchen either alone or with our incredible intern Alexandra for 5 straight 9+ hour days, in a 19th century warehouse that has no heat on the weekends (thank you union guys!). Tonight I’m having dinner at 2 am, consisting of some leftover Italian bread the kids had with the babysitter and a cup of tea I got from a gas station. This is the glamorous life of us Brooklyn indie food scenesters!!!
Speaking of exhaustion, totally forgot to take pictures of the cupcakes before I left tonight. My bad.
The Big Social at 201 Mulberry is running through this Thursday every day from 12-8, and you MUST come down and check us out (and maybe grab some Luke’s Lobster or Pies n’Thighs for lunch?). Our brownies are getting scooped up almost faster than we can make them- we’re thrilled you guys like them so much! And our brownie gift boxes are flying off the shelves- they start at $10, so they’re the perfect little gift for a co-worker or that person you want to get just a little something for. Remember- food gifts never need to be dusted and don’t take up space, so they’re perfect for the person or family who has everything (plus the brownies can be frozen for months, so no worries about them going bad!).
Also, if you want our cupcakes for Christmas, email us NOW or preorder through your nearest store. Christmas flavors are:
-Hot Buttered Rum
-Chocolate Candy Cane
We’ll also have special Christmas flavors on Thursday at Big Social that aren’t in stores. Remember, ALL of these are going in the vault after this weekend and you won’t see them until next year, so stock up!
