Quick Update

I was so wanting to be properly prepared for Fall this year but time is making quite the fool of me. I will be shipping a ton of orders out in the next 2 weeks and after that I might have to take most of the items down from the site while I continue to play catch up and get things ready for Halloween. =)

I will most likely be posting ready made things up on Etsy and cease the custom orders for awhile. I'll be sure to let everyone know what I'll be posting and when. There are a few things here and there...like an extra blueberry smoothie cupcake, and a pineapple smoothie cupcake that I might post. Other than that the Summer Smoothies are RETIRED. For now. I'm sure they'll be back next year, but I've had many people asking when the Summer Smoothies are coming back...and well...what can I say...summer is OVER! Thank goodness. =P

I also plan on standardizing my cupcakes. Most likely, the only sort of cupcake bases I'll do from now on are the more realistic style ones as seen on the new buttercream cupcakes. So that means that the birthday cupcakes, the oreo ones, even the swirly top ones (if I don't decide to discontinue them, which I am seriously considering), will all have the same realistic style cupcake base. I want to change them now but I just don't have photos of them, and I don't want to send people something when they were expecting it to look differently (even if they like it better). So I might have to take all the cupcakes down until I can get photos of the new standardized look of them.

And yes, I did say I will most likely be discontinuing the swirly top cupcakes. It's not because they don't sell...in fact they are still a favorite...I just personally don't really like them anymore. And well, I'm not going to sell something that I don't like just because it makes me money. *shrug* I suppose it's not good business, but I'm an artist first and foremost and that's what matters most to me.

can't wait to see what you have in store. (:

i think it's really cool of you to have that art for art's sake mentality. i'm not sure why you don't like those swirly tops for they sure are adorable. maybe you can incorporate them into something ? like a candy cane cupcake for christmas only using red, green, white and a peppermint scent if people are that crazy over them. (: or antique them and wow us with another favorite. (:

hope all is well. (:
