flavors: carrot cake & peanut butter crunch

I've become even luckier as of late because Judy, owner of Cupcake Delights,
and I have established a professional relationship!!

Judy provides me with delicious, beautiful, coordinating cupcakes...
I provide her with photos for her to use on her website...
And we both do some advertising for each other.
(I even encouraged her to ship cupcakes to Kim from the TomKat Studio and they are going to be featured in one of Kim's recent photoshoots)! Yay!!!

Needless to say, it's been a relationship that has benefited the both of us.
(not so much my thighs though...*wink*)

KEEPING IT REAL
How this all got started:

I walked into Judy's shoppe one day to purchase more cupcakes and I finally got up the nerve to ask her if she'd be interested in working together...
I'm thinking she thought I just wanted some free cupcakes at first because I couldn't really get a read on her. *wink*
I was excited to know she had a FB fan page so we exchanged url's.
By the time I got home that afternoon, Judy had left on comment on my fan page
and well...
the rest is history! *wink*
Little did I know Judy's shoppe was voted best bakery in Orlando in 2008! (and that was after only being open for 8 months)! Wow!!
I definitely feel lucky to be so close to such a treasure!!

Party Box Design November 19, 2010 at 7:35 AM

Love this giveaway, I'm always in the mood for cupcakes! I learned Judy took her first cake decorating class at age 13!

I run for cake! November 19, 2010 at 8:42 AM  

I would love one of her chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes! That's my favorite ice cream flavor so I'm sure it tates just as good in cake form!

I run for cake! November 19, 2010 at 8:43 AM  

I would love a new chocolate & peppermint cupcake flavor for the holidays!

Hmmm.....maybe a December flavor...something with Hot cocoa and candy cane!

ScrappinMissi November 19, 2010 at 2:45 PM  

I think a good December holiday flavor would be Egg Nog! :) YUM!

ScrappinMissi November 19, 2010 at 2:48 PM  

I learned that Judy worked for a trucking company before opening up the cupcake store!

ScrappinMissi November 19, 2010 at 2:51 PM  

Which one I would gobble up right now... Depends on if we are going by pictures or description. I was picking Cappuccino Delight until I read the description for White Madness. They all look amazing.

AZLB November 19, 2010 at 4:08 PM  

I love everything peppermint so candy cane would be my favorite!!!

Naughty & Nice -- a red velvet cupcake with white chocolate chips baked in. Then cream cheese frosting drizzled with white chocolate.

Peggy P. November 19, 2010 at 7:25 PM  

I read the "About" section of her site and learned that she baked the cake for her brother's wedding.

Peggy P. November 19, 2010 at 7:26 PM  

The flavor I would love to try from her website would be the Keylime.

Peggy P. November 19, 2010 at 7:28 PM  

The flavors I would like to see for the holiday season are Eggnog or a White Chocolate and candycane flavor.

angelria November 20, 2010 at 1:22 AM

angelria November 20, 2010 at 1:27 AM  

We have been to cupcake delites twice and she is always so friendly to us. Her cupcakes are to die for.

angelria November 20, 2010 at 1:32 AM  

Didn't realize they had been open since 2007. I would have started going there a long time ago.

vicki November 20, 2010 at 8:42 AM  

In ABOUT I found out we both have daughters named Taylor and they are both 12! Cupcake connection!

vicki November 20, 2010 at 8:43 AM  

I "like" Cupcake Delights and I told her you sent me!

vicki November 20, 2010 at 8:44 AM  

Love to have anything chocolate...hot chocolate cupcakes sound so yummy!

vicki November 20, 2010 at 8:57 AM  

When I was a little girl there was a bakery in my home town of Peoria that had the best chocolate cupcakes with cream in the middle and the whole cupcake was covered in chocolate..liked dipped..would love to see those cupcakes again!

Tasha November 20, 2010 at 2:04 PM

Tasha November 20, 2010 at 2:06 PM  

Wow, Judy started her own business selling cupcakes and cakes at 13! Wish I had that kind of drive at that age.

Tasha November 20, 2010 at 2:07 PM  

At this moment, I am salivating over those Red Velvet cupcakes, yum!

Tasha November 20, 2010 at 2:08 PM  

For the December Holidays, I'd suggest a Pumpkin Spice. Actually, I'd eat pumpkin spice cupcakes all year round! :)

Tasha November 20, 2010 at 2:13 PM  

I didn't see pumpkin spice was already available. Another dream flavor for the December Holidays for me would be Peppermint Chocolate Marshmallow. Lip smacking good. :)

Courtney November 21, 2010 at 1:18 AM  

I Facebooked liked Cupcake Delights!

Courtney November 21, 2010 at 1:19 AM  

I had no idea that an easy bake oven could turn into a love of baking and owning a cupcakery.

Courtney November 21, 2010 at 1:21 AM  

I'd gobble up any of them, but first I'd have the Chocolate Caramel Chunk, anything with chocolate and peanut butter, and the turtle cupcakes.

Courtney November 21, 2010 at 1:23 AM  

Seasonal suggestion:
Something like a pumpkin roll, but in a cupcake: pumpkin cupcake, cream cheese frosting, with chopped pecans.
