CaterCow

We are now a vendor on CaterCow!  This makes ordering cupcakes from us exponentially easier.  I've been browsing it for about an hour now racking my brain for an excuse to throw a party just so I can use it.
Enjoy!

You guys, I'm SUPER excited about this one!  In exactly one week I'm going to be teaching my secret recipe to.....you? at the brand spankin' knew Haven's Kitchen in Manhattan.  No more of this treking to a run down warehouse that is "very brooklyn".....this time it's fancy.  This is a kitchen that I only dream of one day owning, and am excited to pretend it's mine for a few hours this next thursday the 28th.

There I will be teaching how to make two of my favorite cupcakes:
- Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Sauce
not only will you learn how to make my secret dark chocolate cupcakes, but you will also learn how to make caramel from scratch!  A talent I find very useful when eating ice cream.  :)
- Strawberry Cupcakes with Lavender Frosting
Here you will learn how I make my super dense and moist strawberry cupcakes that we will top with a lavender frosting that I like to put on everything.

The class is from 9:30am-11:30am this Thursday the 28th.   Located at Haven's Kitchen at 109 W. 17th st in Manhattan.

Fashion and cupcakes go so well together

Here are some cupcakes Kumquat Cupcakery recently made for a party at Bergdorf Goodman. These were made to look like different lipstick colors, and I think turned out quite well. Look at that red frosting!!! I love it.

Too sweet to not post




I got the sweetest email today from a fan who was visiting NYC and managed to hunt down my cupcakes at the Dean & Deluca on 40th st and 8th ave. Here is a snippet from the email she sent me and some images taken from her blog.

"Keavy,

Thank you so much for your cupcakes =) This one was our favorite and so was the maple bacon and salted chocolate. Ahh, we loved them so much; they DEFINITELY lived up to its reputation! Now if only my bf would propose to me I'd be scheduling you to cater our wedding =P just kidding... kinda heh.
Thanks again, we love NYC and Kumquat Cupcakery! Woot!
Shana "
During their stay they went on a cupcake crawl checking out all the different cupcakes manhattan has to offer. They checked out Crumbs, Magnolias, Baked by Melissa, and Kumquat Cupcakery.......thank goodness for Dean & Deluca.
To read about their adventures and what they thought of the different places GO HERE!


THANKS SHANA!

Kumquat got married!!


Well....the folks AT Kumquat Cupcakery got married!
This last month both Megan (head cupcake baker) and I acquired new last names, a ring, and a best friend for life.

Mr. & Mrs. Megan and Anthony LaMarca

Mr. & Mrs. William and Keavy Blueher

What did I have for my dessert you ask? Why cheese of course...... ; )

Bill and I were a bit sneaky about our wedding. We invited both our families together for a fun filled weekend in NY and upon arriving told them that we were getting married......the next day! It was truly amazing. My cousin dario married us by the water in east river park in Williamsburg, and then we all went back to his place to devour amazing cheese and champagne before heading to a loooooong celebratory dinner at Pastis. If only we could do that everyday.....
To see some pictures of the event you can go HERE.

Party at Victoria Secrets

Yesterday morning, my crew and I delivered 1,500 cupcakes to Victoria Secrets. They were having a employee appreciation day which included massages, manicures, CUPCAKES, gift bags, and a giant game show spinning wheel things (do they have a name??). I'm hoping no Kumquat employees read this - the way I show appreciation is with a hug! :)
The display was beautiful, and as one of the women who works there pointed out, it looks very vintage. I love that.
