Free Cupcake with Purchase!

I've mentioned our super cute gift cards before, so just in case you needed any more reason to purchase one, here's what it looks like. And for the last two days of Christmas shopping, Tuesday and Wednesday ONLY, we are going to give you a free cupcake with any purchase of a gift card valued at $20 or more.

If you'd still prefer to give the real thing, I just want to remind you that you can place an order ahead of time; let us know it's a gift and we'll put a ribbon around your box. We even have window boxes, for an additional $1, for gifts of 1, 4 and 12 cupcakes. Our brown boxes present well with a ribbon too, and that's no additional fee. And don't forget to grab a to/from sticker to put on your box. We're trying to make your gift giving as easy as possible!

Free Parking!

What's the worst part about last minute shopping? The crowds, right?! Unfortunatley, we don't have any tips to help with that....but something that might help those Christmas shopping blues is free parking on 2nd street this weekend. Verizon Fios has paid for all the meters on 2nd for the entire weekend. You might have to circle a bit, but if you can get yourself into a meter down here, you won't have to pay all day. If you're anything like us, you still have plenty of shopping to do and now you can head down to the shore quarterless! And while you are down here, don't forget to stop in for any last minute gifts. We have the cutest gift cards and you know your friends, co-workers, family members, teachers and classmates would love a box of cupcakes. We have perfectly present-ed packaging! Come on in or call ahead, 562-987-1080, to place an order so your boxes are ready when you arrive.

Flying Cupcakes

Have you seen our cupcake mural yet?! We've been wanting to put cupcake art on our walls for a long time, our old store was just too small to accommodate it. Now that we're in our new space, we knew we had to do something big. So we started thinking about who we would want to paint in our store, when we came across a post on our friends' blog called (P.S. it's super random and only rarely offensive). Our friend Erin is a graphic artist and a painter; we like his stuff a lot so we asked if he'd be interested in designing a cupcake mural for us. He was into the idea so he made some time for us right away, and geez did it take time. Erin worked nights after we closed for about 4 or 5 days, he even pulled an all nighter (18 hours straight, with only an ice cream cupcake and carrot cupcake to sustain him). We documented the progress so you could all see how much work goes into painting such an awesome mural!

We're so happy with the newest edition to our 2nd street location and we hope you will enjoy admiring it and even take some photos of your friends eating our cupcakes in front of it! If you've seen our mural in person, you've seen how talented Erin is. If you are interested in contacting him to paint a special wall in your place, you can email him at or check out his website.

Dear Erin, I'm your biggest fan. Love, me.

Frosted Hearts Megan

This Friday, December 5th, we're having a party! We're celebrating the release of an inspirational book written for young girls. Come meet the authors, purchase your own copy of Megan Hearts Baking and get your book signed.

We're very excited to support a Long Beach writer, Kimi Fate. She's written a fantastic book with her sister, Megan, as the star. Megan's journey, in this edition of the Megan Hearts series, is very close to our hearts.

Get to know Megan and Kimi while enjoying mini cupcakes and warm beverages compliments of Frosted Cupcakery and It's A Grind. And did we mention there's going to be a fun band playing live!
