I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream...

For Frosted's ice cream cupcakes!! Just published today, in the District's Best of Food and Drink issue.

We are so excited to offer the very first ice cream cupcake, topped with our signature swirl. This is a dream come true for ice cream cake lovers, present company included! We've put a new spin on it and made it available in a single serving size. It's twice the size of our regular cupcake, so it's large enough to share with your best pal at the beach or on a picnic with your sweetheart but definitely yummy enough to devour yourself. We're serving them up straight from the freezer so they travel well too. About 2o minutes out of the icebox and you've got the perfect summer treat. We plan to have a variety of flavors, starting with mint-chip chocolate chocolate buttercream (shown above).

Come What May...

We owe this month's flavor of the month to one of our favorite customers, Lori! She suggested trying a Mexican chocolate so we got to work coming up with a recipe. We're a week into May and it's already getting rave reviews. We're happy to present our Mexican chocolate buttercream on a royal white cake topped with chocolate curls. It's a creamy chocolate flavor infused with a taste of ground cinnamon. We hope you'll be in soon to try it before the calendar turns another page!

Whistlin' Dixie

If you didn't make it to the Claremont Street Fair, you missed out! But you're in luck, thanks to our devoted documenter Jessica McCarty, we have lots of photos that will make you feel like part of the scene. The weather couldn't have been better, the sites and sounds were reminiscent of Main Street USA and the food & beverages were top notch.

Before we get to the goods, I want to thank our fantastic Frosted crew! Inside, Jacqueline, as always, provided service with a smile to the line of people eager to get their gift with purchase while Kelsey, Chelsea and Jessica kept the cupcakes comin' with their expert frosting techniques and Zach worked his box building magic. Outside, Carolyn showed us all her wonderful artistic abilities painting cupcakes on the young and young at heart and Emily kept the event rolling along with her cool and composed coordination. We had some help from our friends and family too, thank you so much to Rookie, Robby, Lindsay, Kali and Phil for being part of our team on this special day. Our Frosted friends and staff made this event successful and we are so lucky to have them!!

The Dixieland band set the tone for the event, they got our toes a tappin'!
The face painting was a huge hit! As our newest employee, Carolyn has delighted us in the kitchen with her quick study of our ever challenging frosting technique but we were even more amazed at her artistic talent.
It's always a special treat when we sell our mini cupcakes, being that they are only offered for special orders. Kali and Lindsay were the perky faces behind the minis tray. They served up some of our most popular flavors: royal white/vanilla, royal white/chocolate, chocolate/vanilla, chocolate/chocolate and chocolate/mint chip.

The highlight of our event was the Frosted totes we screen printed on site. Rookie and Robby manned the silk screens and Phil was the hand off. We'll take any excuse to work with these guys, they are the best! The totes were offered as a gift with the purchase of 4 full size cupcakes and they were a crowd pleaser. We can't wait to start seeing our customers carrying the cupcake tote around town, it's perfect for groceries and even school books ;)

You'd think that screen printed totes, face painting and mini cupcakes were enough, but that's not how we do it. We like to give you every opportunity to fully immerse yourself in our Frosted fantasy so we painted a photo op! The design was sketched by one of our favorite artists Parker Jacobs; click here, here and here to see what he does best. And we're proud to say, he likes us too, check out our myspace comments! Our most favorite Robby pretty much painted the whole thing, can't thank him enough! Here's a familiar face showing us how it's done...And finally, here's the gal of the day, Emily! She was our eyes and ears out on the street. She was a fantastic coordinator. Here she is helping with the raffle! It's A Grind, Belmont Bliss, Belmont Grill and Frosted Cupcakery all donated items to the raffle. Emily and Katie, from It's A Grind, announced the winners every half hour.The Frosted Crew would like to thank everyone who came and had a great time with their friends and family! We all had a wonderful day and we hope you'll be back for the cupcakes! Here's Nancy, my Mom and business partner, goofing around with Kelsey and's not always all work and no play ;)
