Celebrating Halloween with Coco and The Cupcake Doctor!

We are so excited for the sweet-centered holidays, and Halloween is definitely no exception!  We can put together lots of fun and spooky treats for your Halloween parties, be they for the kiddos or the folks at work!  Be sure to get those orders in soon, as our calendar fills up around the end of the month. 






Our shop also holds an annual Trick-or-Treat, where anyone in costume can come in Halloween afternoon/evening to claim a free festive mini-cupcake.  We wish everyone a fun and safe holiday!

Almost the end of the season for Coco!

Hi guys!  Coco would love to be able to serve delicious amazing gourmet cupcakes year-round, but as the weather cools off, so will her schedule.  She is still making some regular parks, so be sure to get out and see her while you can!  As the holiday season approaches, we'll make some local event-centered parks too, including for the giant pumpkin festival in Old Colorado City on October 18th:

We'll be parked at local children's shop staple Mountain Moppets.  We'll keep you in the loop about other big events on Facebook and Twitter.  Many of our regular stops have needed to shuffle around, and we'll look for some new parks over the winter so we can come back with a regular park schedule, bigger and better than ever, next year!

You can still book Coco for holiday events; she is a perfect way to thank employees, entertain the kids, or just throw a heck of a party.  If you have something in mind, be sure to give a call at 719-271-0990.  If you are a business looking to book for a holiday party, be sure to get those orders in soon!  All bookings will come with the caveat that Coco does not drive in snowy weather, but we are always happy to sub in our Cupcambulance with a load full of your delicious treats for a lower cost at your event.

Finally, if winter weather gets you to feeling the lack-of-cupcake blues, remember that Coco's amazing cupcakes can also be found at her home bakery, The Cupcake Doctor, located just off Powers at 6455 Omaha Blvd.  Our bakeshop is open year-round and will be serving tons of fun and festive themed treats!  Till next time,

Coco participates in the #ALSicebucketchallenge!

The Cupcake Doctor was doubly nominated to participate in the 2014 ALS Ice Bucket Challenge last week, and after a successful double-dunking she nominated other local small businesses Radiantly Raw, Mountain Pie Company, and Coco the Springs Cupcake Truck to participate and donate for the challenge.

Coco happily took on the challenge at American Storage, and graciously nominated our hosts there to participate.  That was quite a splash!  But she's one of few folks who enjoy an ice bath.  :)

Our friends at Radiantly Raw (Alan Mosher) and Mountain Pie Company (Matt Campbell) rose to the #ALSIceBucketChallenge!  Thanks everyone for the support, and don't forget to donate online at the ALS website (http://www.alsa.org/).

Responding to our challenge!  Appropriately awesome!

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!
