Get loved up this Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and every year we get the guys (occasionally the ladies) come in last minute in a panic to get cupcakes. It is without a doubt our busiest day of the year, even more so than Christmas. This year, our freakishly talented Pastry Chefs have come up with some crazy limited edition cupcakes and because we do handcraft them there's only so many we can bake on the day. We don't use frosting machines or robots so unfortunately we can't spit a million out at once....which means that we do sell out! So my post today will be encouraging you to order them so your Valentine will feel loved the heaven up. Let's workshop some ideas why cupcakes really take the cake for V-day pressies. one. They are freaking delicious. Freshly baked every morning. Best ingredients. Belgian chocolate. Aphrodisiac. #foodporn two. Serious work goes into decorating these limited edition cupcakes, I'm talking about tempering white chocolate, making love hearts and painting them with edible food colour. And hand piping love in cursive script. It's real art...that you can eat. It's made to impress your Valentine's eyes, mouth, nose, stomach and instagram. three. Yes everyone likes roses but it's not like they can go sharing roses to their work colleagues, friends family - that's just weird. If you want to get the approval of your Valentine's friends & peeps, sharing is always caring and cupcakes are super shareable. This will also indicate their degree of generosity but don't be too hard on them if they keep it all to themselves cos they are Cupcake Central cupcakes after all. four. "What? You mean all I have to do is order it online and it'll get delivered to them? I don't need to do any leg work and only finger work on the keyboard?" Yes. And yes. All you need to do is come up with a witty note to go with the gift box when you check out and if you can't think of anything here's a nice quote "Will you be my cupcake?" #sopunny Shopping online is where it's at. five. I've run out of ideas but I honestly don't think any Valentine would be mad getting a box of cupcakes, unless they are on a juice cleanse. In which case you'd be in a bit of trouble as they would blame you for trying to make them give into temptation. But hey you can always work out together afterwards *winkie wink* #yolo. Here's some gorgeous styled cupcake photos for extra encouragement. Ok that's all from me. Oh I've also started making more YouTube videos finally so if you're bored, you can add that to your watchlist. Have a sweet day! x Sheryl Founder + Co-owner Cupcake Central p.s. Some of you may have a super keen eye and see our new packaging with a totally new brand. Yep we are evolving and wait till you see the new packaging in all it's glory in your hands.
