Oooh, I am SO excited about this giveaway. Someone is going to be very, very happy because Tina, the very generous owner of the NY Cupcake Co. will be making them their very own tasty and decadent treats! And the best part is, the winner has a choice between a few different treats that are all simply yummy-licious! Is yummy-licious even a word? If not, it is NOW, because I can't think of any better way to describe anything that comes out of the expert kitchens of the NY Cupcake Co.! A little something sweet and sinful to share with a special someone or keep all to yourself...Does it get any better than that? This mama thinks not!
Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that cupcakes are all the rage right now, and for good reason! Cupcakes are fun and whimsical, or they can be classy and elegant...Some are filled, some are plain, some are decorated with smooth fondant, while others are topped with creamy, flavorful, and sometimes colorful icings. You can top a cupcake with elaborate little cupcake toppers that are often edible, or you can sit down with your favorite wee ones and have them "decorate" with sprinkles and colored sugars. With cupcakes, the possibilities are endless. Cupcakes are definitely versatile enough for any occasion, and they are portable enough to take to parties or to your child's school come birthdays. They are also the PERFECT serving size for those of us who are trying to lose a few pounds by summer and might not always help ourselves to the smallest sliver of cake! Can we say portion control?
Tina over at NY Cupcake Co. has you covered when it comes to fun gourmet treats that will make every occasion just a little sweeter.
NY Cupcake Co. specializes in custom, made-to-order cakes, cupcakes, cookies, handmade chocolates and other sweet treats-always made to order in their own kitchens and always using only the finest ingredients available, like Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate, Pure Madagascar Vanilla, Real Fruits, Fresh Citrus Zests, and of course, what is baking without real sweet cream butter!?
And let me tell you, not only is Tina a wonderful lady to work with, she also pays close attention to even the tiniest of details. The people at NY Cupcake Co. work closely with each and every customer, ensuring that they understand the wants, tastes, and desires of each individual client. This ensures that all the details and colors fit the theme and spirit of your special occasion perfectly. This is the commitment of the NY Cupcake Co. They want to make every occasion just as sweet and memorable as it can be.
I received a TON of goodies from Tina to sample with my family. When the box arrived, my husband and son were perched, waiting like vultures, just ready to devour its contents! I was shocked to find not only cupcakes, but edible image cookies, adorable and chic cupcake toppers, chocolate covered marshmallow pops, chocolate dipped Oreos, yummy meringue cookies, and FABULOUS whoopie pies! I really got a sense for the love that Tina puts into her edible "art" (cause let's face it: baking IS an art, especially when things turn out so beautiful to the eye!) I also was amazed by the close attention to even the tiniest of details. Take a look at what I received from the NY Cupcake Co. These photos do not do these heavenly desserts any justice.
As you can see, there is a TON of variety coming out of the NY Cupcake Co. kitchen! And let me assure you, it is all delicious! We loved it all! My husband especially loved the Chocolate Covered OREOs, the Chocolate Marshmallow Pops, the Chocolate Cupcakes that I could not ice for the life of me, and the Whoopie Pies. (If you're noticing a theme here, it's because my hubby is a self-proclaimed choco-junkie!) My son loved it all. I really liked the buttercream icing that Tina sent for me to ice the chocolate cupcakes with. It was sweet, somewhat fluffy, and creamy all at the same time. The vanilla flavor was deep and rich, and I could tell that she uses a superior quality vanilla for her goodies. Yes, you can really tell. Quality of ingredients definitely makes a difference when it comes to the overall taste of things. I also loved the cookies! I could not bring myself to actually eat the images of my babies, so I performed minor "surgery" with a butter knife to get just the cookies! No, I don't have a weird hang-up about eating someone's face...I just thought these were too full of awesomeness to eat, so I am keeping them! Okay maybe that IS a little weird, but whatever. The cookies themselves were WONDERFUL...I am not sure if they are a shortbread or a sugar cookie, but they are sweet, have an amazing texture, and they are just packed full of a light, vanilla flavor that I just adored. Overall, we LOVE the NY Cupcake Co. and would recommend their sweet creations for any special occasion you might have...even if that occasion is just a rainy Sunday spent indoors with family, surrounded by babies and covered in baby goo. Yep. They're really THAT good. Give them a try!
