Coco is Ready for a Winter Break!

Our regular stop schedule is on hiatus with the arrival of Colorado's wintry weather, but we are still making appearances at public and private events!  Check out the Facebook page to see when Coco is out at holiday craft fairs, tree lightings, company events, and more!  If you need some sweet treats to tide you over until fairer weather returns, visit Coco's home bakery, The Cupcake Doctor, located at 6455 Omaha Blvd.  We always have an awesome selection of cupcakes and other treats available to walk-ins and to order.  We even deliver if you're looking to avoid the cold weather or winter traffic.  Our custom holiday treats can't be beat for office parties or family time, just call 719-271-0990 to place your orders today!  We can also put together some beautiful gift packs for colleagues, clients, or anyone you want to make feel special this holiday season.



We have all sorts of fun Coco-related projects that we'll continue to work on through the winter, so we're ready to share them with you next year!  In the meantime, Coco and everyone here at The Cupcake Doctor wishes you and your families a wonderful holiday season!

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!

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!
