Owner, Kim Hand, traveled to London and received training at Peggy Porschen Academy in order to perfect these beauties.  They taste every bit as beautiful as they look.

The Petite size serves 2 – 4 people and the Tall size serves 12 – 15.  Check out our Flavor Page for available cake flavors and details on ordering.  Due to high volume of orders at holiday time, it’s possible for us to fill our order book to capacity, so don’t delay.

It’s that time again for us here at Buttercups to introduce our flavor of the month and this month we are excited to introduce the Mimosa Cupcake! Here in Louisiana Mimosas are a staple at any brunch you attend and they are a personal favorite of mine. I love the mixture of champagne and orange juice, to me it just screams summertime. Our Mimosa Cupcake starts off with a fluffy orange zest infused vanilla cupcake, followed by our scrumptious champagne buttercream, and then lastly an adorable white buttercream flower is added. These cupcakes are simply amazing! It has the perfect hint of orange and of course the wonderful champagne flavor that comes with a Mimosa.

For the past few months here at Buttercups we have introduced a new flavor of the month each month! This month is no exception but is going to be a little more special. For the first week of April we will have a flavor of the week, and then for the remaining three weeks we will have a different flavor of the month.

The flavor of the week for April 1st-4th will be Peeps Cupcakes! The cupcake is our original Vanilla and our Chocolate Vanilla with an adorable Peep bunny dunked in chocolate and placed on top! Peeps have been a staple candy during the Easter season and we love them here at Buttercups!

Peeps were founded in 1953 when Sam Born replaced the painstaking process of hand-forming the chicks with mass production. When founder Sam Born would display a sign for his freshly-made candy, he would title it “Just Born,” playing off of his last name and the fact that he made his candy fresh daily. New shapes other than the chicks were produced following a theme according to the season starting in the 1960s. Twenty years later, the Marshmallow Peeps Bunny was released as a popular year round shape of the candy. The yellow chicks were the original form of the candy — hence their name — but then the company introduced other colors and, eventually, the many different shapes in which they are now produced. Peeps were manufactured in different colors such as lavender and blue starting in 1995. Prior to that they were only being produced in the traditional colors: pink, white, and yellow. New flavors such as vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate were introduced between the years of 1999 and 2002.

This past Saturday Buttercups was featured at one of our favorite events in town, Cork! We made 1600 mini cupcakes for the event and gave out every last one of them at the event.

Our booth!

There were only 1300 tickets sold for the event and the weather was perfect! The festival included over 80 wines from across the world. There was live music and food from various restaurants in town.

In between each food booth was a booth for a different type of wine. There was everything from Moscato to Malbec and everything in between! The patrons even received there own Cork souvenir wine glass to assist in trying all the wines. Our booth was a big hit and was constantly busy.

My favorite part about working the wine festival is getting to meet all the people who are attending. I also enjoyed getting to network with different people in town and even people from out of town.

One of the reason we enjoy participating in Cork is that the proceeds from Cork go to support the Red River Revel Arts Festival. We can’t wait for next year!
