We may not be a cake decorating company, but now and again, if we are able and time allows, we will take your idea and make it a reality!
Photo 1: A customer took last year's Fort Worth Magazine Best of 2008 and created a wedding anniverary destination date. She and her husband visited a Best of lunch spot, Best of walking spot and Best of Cupcake spot! The cupcake message was her sweet idea.
Photo 2: The initials S and N were for a couple's engagement party.
Photo 3: An Enchanted Florist fan wanted to wish them well in their new location on Camp Bowie Blvd.
Photo 4 & 5: A young man called from LA, California wanting to send something special to his mom as she became a United States of America citizen. We delivered this festive box of a dozen babycakes to Arlington. What a thoughtful son!
Photo 6: A call from the Bay Area, California asking us to do something special for a friend's birthday. Another delivery of cuppies!!
Photo 7: Our own son wanted to make that Prom invitation a little extra special and 'sweet'. She said yes! =)

Christmas Greetings!

One of the best parts of owning and operating this little shop of cupcakes is meeting the amazing customers that walk through our door. Whether they appear on a Forbes 500 list, or work two or three jobs in order to provide for their family, there’s one thing all our customers have in common: they crave and appreciate quality!
Our customers recognize the effort that goes into our baked-from-scratch cupcakes, no matter who they are or where they are from.

We have gotten to know so many people over our counter, and they have gotten to know us.
We get updates at Christmas time from some, invitations to gatherings, and even announcements of recent births. We learn of less joyful moments such as the loss of a loved one, or an unexpected diagnosis of a difficult illness. We have customers that keep us informed of marathons they are running, vacations they are taking and businesses they are starting.

We even have a customer that started a Facebook Group, called For the Love of The Cupcake Cottage, after discovering our little shop a few months ago. That was very flattering! If you are on Facebook be sure to look it up. I took a peek at it once while my daughter was logged on to her Facebook and was impressed that there were about 25 members!
I'm afraid time doesn't allow for networking via Facebook, Twitter or Text Message, maybe someday.
For now, we will continue to meet and greet our customers the old fashion way: over the counter!

Straight From the Case

We sell lots and lots of cupcakes every day! Sometimes customers pop in for a quick cupcake fix before, during or after lunch. Often times they will call or come by in need of more than
a few cuppies and are happy to leave with a pink box of delightful treats!

Above is a box of 2 dozen cupcakes we put together from our case for a customer calling from Weatherford. By the time she arrived her box was ready and waiting!
We encourage you to call ahead so we can let you know what's available. We are happy to hold cupcakes for ya!
