Benefit Days are now BENEFIT MONTHS!

PLEASE JOIN US IN CELEBRATING the return of our “Benefit Program”!

New and improved because it lasts all month now! Your purchases any day, all the time, without exception will help us contribute to a lucky local non profit.

We will donate  a portion of all sales to a new non profit organization each month.

The FIRST BENEFICIARY in our new program is (…..drumroll please….) our great friends at PHAME ACADEMY!

That’s right! All your Cupcake Jones purchases in the month of June will benefit PHAME ACADEMY! What is PHAME? It’s a fine and performing arts academy for adults with developmental disabilities. And it’s AWESOME!

June 23-24, 2012 PHAME’s performing arts students present “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”. We dropped by their rehearsal on Saturday and surprised the students with some sweet inspiration as well as an announcement about our benefit month for them. Check out a quick video of our announcement (AND their reaction!) and learn more about PHAME here.

Check out our June menu to plan ahead….Remember that phone orders, wedding orders, pre orders and walk in customers all count. So plan those parties, preorder for your office, drop in for treats for that meeting, book that wedding (even if it’s in 2013!). Any and all revenue in June qualifies.

Want to know more about PHAME? Check out their website.

See you at the bakery and thank you to all our friends and customers who make it possible for us to give.

Wedding Thank You

We got the sweetest thank you card today from a bride and groom we worked with recently. I wanted to share it with you all.

……………………………………………………………………………..

Dear Cupcake Jones Crew,

Mmmm…your cupcakes were absolutely wonderful tasting and a masterpiece of icing. They were such a hit and they added such a unique flair to our wedding. You all were so personable and treated us as if we were your only gig! It is for that reason that we wanted to thank you for doing such an amazing job on our cupcakes. Your talents and careful creations made all the difference. Thank you!

Yours truly, Cody & Andrea

Thank so much Cody and Andrea. It was our pleasure! We wish you many happy years together!!!

Luck o’ the Irish Cupcakes

It’s almost here! St. Patrick’s Day is this Tuesday, March 17th!

Now many of you know that we are NOT Irish (actually, Peter is mostly Norwegian and I am Native American and German) but we love beer so, I guess like many people, we love this holiday too! And, we’ve been to Ireland so that counts for something, right?

We will be celebrating at Cupcake Jones with a couple of really fun Irish themed cupcakes. One is our Bailey’s Cake. The cake is made with chocolate and Irish Cream. The filling and icing are Irish cream, too. It is delicious!

The second is our Thin Mint cupcake. This one takes some really cool explaining. We use our very popular sour cream fudge cake to start. Then we make these really yummy homemade mint sandwich cookies and we grind them up and put them in pastry cream for the filling. Then we grind up more and put them in buttercream for the icing. Finally, we put a one of the mint sandwich cookies on top of the cupcake, too. It is so minty and good!

Every year we have people call and ask for green cupcakes. We try to stay true to our commitment to avoid artificial color in our cupcakes so we hope that these Irish-ish cupcakes will satisfy your St. Patty’s Day desires. 

So, call ahead and place your order for fastest service and we’ll be happy to help you celebrate!

See you at the bakery!

~Lisa, Peter and the Baking Leprechauns!
