Please join us this evening from 5 to 6:30 at the First & Spring shop location, for a Trophy Cupcakes & Parties! book signing. Author and cupcake maker extraordinaire, Jennifer Shea, will be on hand to sign her new book and also to answer any party planning or cupcake questions. This, her first book, is loaded with recipes, tips and ideas, all beautifully shot and styled. Cupcakes will of course be served, as well as bubbly, sparkling cider, and cups of Mariage Freres tea. Come do a little Holiday shopping, have a treat, buy a book. You get the idea. Hope you can join in on the fun. It will be a festive eve. For those of you not able to make it, we will have a stack of the books signed by Jennifer for sale after the event. These make swell gifts for the baker on your list. We hope to see you there!
It is always fun to introduce a new line to the shop shelves at such a busy time–it just adds a freshness visually to everything around it. I am so pleased to introduce Admiralty Salt Company, which is a local artisan sea salt made entirely by hand in small batches from seawater they harvest directly from the Strait of Juan de Fuca. It is perfect finishing salt to use as you complete a dish on the stovetop or oven, or to leave out on the table to use while you enjoy your meal. Don’t even get me started on how cool the packaging is. What a perfect stocking stuffer or small gift for any foodie friend or family member on your list.
Speaking of local, I wanted to give you all a heads up to a book signing we will be hosting this Tuesday from 5 to 6:30 at the First Avenue shop. By now I am sure you have picked up on my love of Trophy cupcakes. Jennifer, the owner, has created just the most wonderful book that includes cupcake recipes as well as party planning ideas. She will be signing said fabulous book that eve, as well as serving her outrageous cupcakes. It will be such a treat to have her signing her new book while the shop is hustling and bustling with holiday shoppers. Bubbly and sparkling cider will also be served. Please do come join in on the fun this Tuesday evening. Hope to see you there!
Trophy Cupcakes & Parties!, the new book out this week by Seattle cupcake maker extraordinaire, Jennifer Shea, is filled with tasty ideas–on how to make the perfect cupcake, of course, but also ideas on how to throw the perfect party. I have long had a love for Trophy cupcakes, serving them at our Holiday Open Houses for many years. This book, that Jennifer has so lovingly put together, is filled with recipes & ideas that you will reach for time and again. I attended the book launch at London Plane the other evening, and got my first look at the book. It is so delightfully written, styled and photographed. Copies will arrive at Watson Kennedy soon, and Jennifer will sign them for us, so each copy will be a keepsake. Look for further details for a book signing at the shop during the Holidays too.
We took a small respite during the hot months of cupcake deliveries, but with the crispness in the air, we once again are selling the divine Trophy cupcakes Monday through Saturday at the First & Spring shop. Pair that with a cup of Mariage Frères tea and you are in for quite a treat. These also makes just the sweetest gifts, as the cupcakes are packaged in the above stellar & stylish box. We have a neighborhood business that gives a boxed cupcake to their employees on their birthday instead of a card. I love that idea! Salted caramel and red velvet are the top selling flavors to start us off this week.
I am thrilled to report that we just received our first delivery of Trophy Cupcakes at Watson Kennedy today, at the First & Spring location! I have long been a major fan of Trophy cupcakes. We have served mini-cupcakes at our Holiday Open Houses for years, so I am delighted to be offering them for sale each day. Please stop in and check out the fun display of the tasty delights. We are also starting to sell our Mariage Freres tea by the cup today too. What a perfect combo!
