We’re picking back up our Charity of the Month program for April after this month’s super-awesome charity competition! Next month we are partnering with the Duke Lemur Center. They are the world’s largest sanctuary for rare and endangered prosimian primates, and they house about 250 animals including 15 species of lemurs. Their mission is to promote research and understanding of prosimians in their natural habitat to contribute to educational development, conservation, and research. If you want to help out, come on by to either store and pick up a cupcake on Wednesday. We’re giving them 75 cents of each one sold every Wednesday all month long!

We had a BLAST last Wednesday at our Celebrity Cupcake Wars extravaganza! It was great to meet some of our cupcake poets and the celebrities did a terrific job! Our girls in the kitchen worked their butts off getting ready for the party and we think it worked out famously. Each team got a basket filled with 5 secret North Carolina ingredients and they had to use at least three in an original cupcake concoction.
The Yellow Team made up of Ed & Heba paired with the lovely Alysia. They were representing the Pay It Forward Fertility Foundation, and had the “North Carolina Icons” basket. This basket was made up of North Carolina items that are now famous all over the country including Krispy Kreme donut holes, Texas Pete, Moravian Cookies, Biltmore Wine, and Pepsi. [Read more…]
