Thursday, August 11


This morning when DJ came down to the shop to open, he noticed we had a message on the answering machine.  Not all the unusual until he listened to the message!!!!!!!!!!!  Remember a week or to ago when I jokingly posted about emailing Cupcake Wars?  Well guess what??  THEY CALLED!!!!!!  They received the following email and LOVED it.  

Hello Cupcake Wars!

I love the show Cupcake Wars and DVR it when I can't watch it. I know of a local cupcakery that would be perfect for your show!  The Crazy Cupcake in Jonesborough, TN.    

The Crazy Cupcake would be a great contender on Cupcake Wars. I have to say that I, myself, love sweets, especially cupcakes but am never really sold on cupcakes I eat from stores or bakeries. I heard about The Crazy Cupcake in Historic Jonesborough and thought it would be a cute place to visit with my mom one afternoon. We went. It was amazing. I ordered the Cinna-Monster and it was delicious! Just the right amount of cinnamon and cake combination. I took a bite and immediately melted. The cake was so good, the texture was smooth and airy, but with beautiful flavor. Since then, I have been back many times and have not yet met a cupcake I didn't love. I raved about these cupcakes so much to my cousin that she demanded I bring her some when we went to a wedding together 8 hours away! One of my favorite flavors is Choco-Latte. The frosting on that cake is smooth but with little chunks of chocolate that just melt in your mouth! I would love to see The Crazy Cupcake on your show, and honestly, I think it would be your honor to have them!

Now we have to make a 3-5 minute audition video by Monday!  I will post the video sometime tomorrow.  Tim Flannigan is  a professional videographer and he graciously offered to film us tomorrow!!

Better with Bacon.

At least that is what they tell me, so I added bacon {candied bacon to be exact} to our chocolate cupcake and then frosted it with a kicked up chocolate frosting and a piece of candied bacon to finish it off! I can say that this is one food that is Better with Bacon!

Create Your Own Cupcake Contest!!

What better way to kick off summer than with a contest.  So we are having a Create Your Own Cupcake Contest!!  Starting tomorrow {May 1st} and running through the end of May, we are accepting submissions of your Crazy Cupcake flavor.   The winner of the Create Your Own Cupcake contest will get to name their cupcake creation and have it added to the menu here at The Crazy Cupcake. {and maybe I'll give you a 6 pack of YOUR flavor for free!!}

So email me your flavor ideas at  At the end of May I will go through all the submissions and list them on the website.  Then you will have 2 weeks to get your friends and family to vote for your {or your favorite} flavor.  At the end of 2 weeks, I will take the top 6 and turn them into recipes.  For the following 3 weeks, each Saturday, I will bake 2 of the top 6 flavors and you can come in and sample them.  After the 3 weeks: You vote again for your absolute favorite!  And that flavor will get added to the menu.

Now remember when submitting your flavor to be as specific as possible.  For example: what flavor cake, is there a filling?, what type of frosting, what type of decoration or topping {fresh fruit, sprinkle, whatever}  You don't have to give me a recipe just a flavor {Here is an example: I want a chocolate cake with chocolate chip cookie dough pieces in it, vanilla frosting, and a baked mini chocolate chip cookie on top}.  Make sure your flavor combinations actually work well together and aren't gross {I might make you eat them!  LOL}  Also be sure to include your name and phone number or email address so I can contact you if I have any questions or to let you know you made the top 6 or won the contest.

Remember the wilder the better!!  We want Crazy Cupcakes not your average, run of the mill cupcakes.  During May, I might post some of the more crazy/interesting ones on Facebook to give you an idea or in case you need inspiration.  Good Luck and have fun!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Sweet 16!!

Diane {who runs the Jonesborough Merchants Association: JAMSA} had us make cupcakes for her daughter's Sweet 16 party.  The party was held at The Old Quarters.  She got 100 regular and 100 mini Double chocolate cupcakes.  She was also the first person to use our new cupcake stand. The stand is made out of white MDF wood and is laminate coated so we can easily clean  it.  The cool part about the stand is that we can put ribbon around each tier so that it will be color coordinated for any party or event.

Happy Sweet 16!!!  Hope your party was a blast!!!!
