Coco put herself together a CONVOY...

And it was a fantastic time for all!  With the support of all her new friends, Coco made the trek from the shop to Academy, to Briargate, to Garden of the Gods, downtown, to Tinseltown, to Fountain, and finally back to the bakery, spreading some sweet cupcake love all over the Springs!  Thanks again to everyone who came out to enjoy discounted treats, free T-shirts, cake-pops and more, we had such a good time.  Once we've sorted through all of our and fan pics, we'll post the best ones!  We may have to make this an annual thing...  ;o)

We had lots of help from our lead baker Angela and Julia Stiles - impersonator Kim...  ;o)

Jack couldn't control his sweet tooth, and had to come out and say hi to the crew!

Our only goals are to have some fun and show some appreciation for our amazing customers!  We're going to have a lot of personnel on hand to make sure we stick to the schedule.  Of course, things may come up along the way but the show WILL go on, with or without any given member of the fleet. ;) We have plans in place to keep us stocked, so get ready for some amazing treats to make your Saturday sweet!

Check out this fun video of our "theme" song!  The legendary country song "Convoy"...

*Keep in mind that both of my parents are retired military police officers and we still enjoy the tune.  ;o)
**The shop will be full of cupcakes but short of staff that Saturday, please be patient! We will not be doing deliveries that day, but you are welcome to order ahead and pick up cupcakes along our route!

Coco gets a Makeover!

Coco is parked briefly as she gets some much-needed interior work done, which includes a new dash complete with functioning gauges!  The gauges should help prevent future mechanical issues and give you guys a more reliable Cupcake Truck experience.  We can't wait to see the finished product!  :o)

Coco will be back and better than ever in the next week!

It's always disappointing when you put your trust in a business, and they don't conduct their business with the care and service that you would.  Unfortunately, we trusted Coco to a garage that proved to be careless and irresponsible.  Fortunately, we've found a couple local businesses that are working together to undo the damage and get Coco back on the road with your favorite mobile treats!  Definitely show these places some love--without their support we would have had to park Coco for the year.  Special thanks to The Mile High Car Company for finding the pieces, and Springs Auto & Truck Service for performing the installation.  The world is such a nicer place when we all practice the golden rule!

Coco's hitting her stride!

Coco is getting this cupcake show on the road this summer!  With plates of cupcake offerings like these, who can say no:

Check out the updates to our flavor page for a quick summary of flavors!  We'll be cranking & alternating new ones all the time, so every Truck stop will bring you something new &delicious to try.

Did we mention that we'll be hitting new spots this year?  We're keeping some of the classic parks, like Tinseltown and Briargate&Voyager, but we've moved to Quality Inn on Wednesdays on Garden of the Gods, we're at the Bank of Colorado or the Antlers Hilton when we're downtown, and we're investigating a permanent park in Fountain too!

Stop by and say hi when we're in the area!  We'll "treat" you well...  :o)  We hope to post a more regular schedule soon, but Coco's a popular lady and she's always getting asked to appear in other places too!  We'll keep you in the loop with more frequent posts.

Almost forgot to let you know that Coco is being immortalized in web comic form!  Hope you guys enjoy, we'll post cartoons on the blog too.  Hope you like!

Coco's Debut Was a Big Hit!

Folks in Tinseltown and Briargate welcomed her back with open arms, and she was so flattered...we're taking your feedback on Facebook about where and when you'd like to see her around the city, so chime in while you can!  Her "regular" weather-permitting schedule will be released soon, and she can't wait to see you all again and serve more of the best sweet treats in the Springs.

Everyone loves cupcakes!  :o)
