Goodbye Cupcake Corner....

Yes, we are no longer The Cupcake Corner. Introducing our NEW name....Sweet As Bliss! After making a few changes to my company, I strongly insisted my company needed a fresh, raw look. After several months of planning, I came up with a whole new concept, new name, AND a new website! I would LOVE for you all to take a peek and offer your feedback:) In addition to cupcakes & cakes, I am now offering a mini dessert bar, featuring everything from cake pops to mini heart shaped apple pies and chocolate truffles!

Although we have already launched our website, our new blog is still under construction. Details about a launch date will be posted on our new website at: . For inquiries, please contact: .

Thank you all for your support & I look forward to serving you under Sweet As Bliss!

Thank you,

One Year Anniversary!

Hey Everyone! I can't believe it has been over a MONTH since i've last blogged! Time has literally flown by over the past few weeks. The Cupcake Corner has certainly been blessed with an abundance of orders. I have been receiving quite a few new clients and am even more thrilled to receive orders from regulars!:)

I am also happy to announce that it has been ONE year that I have been in business and am excited for what the second year has in store for my company. As my small, web-based business continues to flourish, I hope to take on any opportunities thrown in my direction and continue to develop new concepts that will improve or enhance my company's growth.

The newest flavor to our menu (August's flavor of the month), is White Chocolate Cherry-Coconut. This flavor is ridicously good and is so full of flavor! Made with a blend of dark & lucious cherries, creamy coconut, and pure white chocolate. Frosted with a white chocolate cherry buttercream and toasted organic coconut shavings!

August, was the last month that I had featured a flavor of the month. Starting this Fall, I will be adding a flavor of the season, and continue to add one new flavor each season. The Fall 2010 flavor will be featured in October! I will continue to host monthly cupcake variety boxes, which feature four different flavors. Please inquire for ordering details! Below, is August's variety box order...

Green Tea & Honey, Orange Cream, Root Beer Float,
and White Chocolate Cherry-Coconut

As you can see, I have had very little free time to blog in the past few weeks, so I have decided to just blog about our customized orders...that way your brains are not fried after reading each blog! LOL! Check out some of the customized orders we've had throughout the past few weeks!

 LOVE this gorgeous modernized version of a dove...

 This customized lucious vegan chocolate smash cake is anything
but ordinary! Rich in flavor and a velvety, decadent texture that just melts
in your mouth!

These sweet, girly cupcakes below were for the birthday of my friend's twin
daughters who turned 7! The theme was Fancy Nancy Ooh La Laa it's Beauty Day!
The girls got to have their nails & hair done, plus mini facials. Soo cute! Can't decide
which decoration I liked best...but I would probably go with the lipstick!:)

My uncle Dean would just LOVE these!

a baby shower and are just soo sweet...

This customized cake pop basket is probably one of my favorite orders
to date! My client gave me full freedom to use my imagination and come
up with a birthday gift basket for her friend's birthday...and of COURSE I had
to incorporat red, burgundy, and gold as part of the theme! I am also
a huge fan of feathers and butterflies. I think it came out just GORGEOUS! The
flavors she chose were Burgundy Velvet & TARAmisu.

 Pretty in pink birthday cupcakes!

Sweet baby blue hearts for a baby shower...

That's it for the end of July & August's customized orders! I couldn't even imagine how long my blog would have been if I blogged about every order I had! Lol:)

Lastly, I would like to announce that for the ENTIRE month of September, The Cupcake Corner will be donating 10% of ALL proceeds to Gavin Marquez, who is battling Tay Sach's disease, which is a very rare & life threatening disease. The money will used towards furthering research in finding a cure for Tay Sachs. There are only 2 known cases in San Diego. Please check out to read his touching story and to learn more about this vicious disease. We all  (Gavin, his family, and myself) would love your support in ordering cupcakes this month or even better, making a personal donation! Please contact me for details or questions.

Have a blessed week and check back next week for the next cupcake variety box date!
