It’s been a great year, Sugarfans!

As we wrap up another great year, we’ve decided to take a quick look back at some of our favorite happenings in 2014.  In case you missed out, here’s what we’ve been up to (Besides, of course, making thousands of cakes, cupcakes, and fresh pastries!):

Sugarland 2014

We were nominated for 7 awards in the Indy Best of the Triangle– Best Bakery, Best Cupcake, Best Desserts, Best Frozen Desserts, Best Pie, and Best Place for a Blind Date in both Orange/Chatham and Wake counties. That was all thanks to you, our sugar fans, sharing all the Sugarland love!

We also won The Knot “Best of Weddings” Award for 2015! Once again, we’ve had the privilege of working with the most wonderful couples in the Triangle and are so grateful for all the kind words you shared about your experiences with us!

Through our Charity of the Month program and donations, we’ve given more than $3000 to several wonderful local charities this year.  We’ve gotten to work with the Duke Lemur Center, the Carolina Tiger Rescue, The Boys and Girls Club, the Movember Foundation, Kidzu Children’s Museum in Chapel Hill, and so many small and large groups to make 2014 a little sweeter!

We hosted our first ever March Madness- Great Cake Off! Starting with 64 cakes on our Pinterest board, and over 100 participants, you all pinned and liked until we had narrowed it down to one winning cake!

There have been so many other funs times this year and great moments that we’re grateful to have gotten to share with you!  We can’t wait to see what 2015 holds for us and all our lovely Sugarfans!

What was your most memorable moment this year?

 

Mo-cupcakes! Mo-money!

Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Who has the manliest mustache of them all? By the end of this month, we’ll know! We’ve given you a two week head start, men, to get your sweet ‘staches growing. Now it’s time to see how your furry, facial flavor saver stands up to the competition!

The rules are simple- take a picture of yourself, aka a selfie, sporting some Sugarland sweets all up in your ‘stache. Make sure to include the words cupcakes and ‘stache in your caption! We’ll be donating an extra dollar to the UNC Movember Network for every ‘stache selfie we get! Tag our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag, #mocupcakes, so we can see your magnificent mustache! Then, find your selfie on our Facebook page and share with all your friends to get more likes. The picture that has the most likes at the end of the day on November 30th will receive a $100 Sugarland gift card. That’s a lot of Mo Bro cupcakes!!

So step away from the razors and shaving cream and get yourself a cupcake, because it’s time for a facial hair throw down!Movember at Sugarland

Great coffee, even better cause.

Care Cups Oak City RoastersWe know what do-gooders our Sugarfans are, and we love to spread the good as well! We’ve got a wonderful opportunity for you to help out with an awesome cause! Oak City Roasters, the wonderful company that makes our delicious coffee, has come up with a brilliant new business model to create individual servings of their coffee, similar to K-Cups, which they will call Care Cups. The product will allow people to have local coffee shop taste come right out of their Keurig, from their own home.

But the product isn’t really what this is about. Oak City Roasters has partnered with Wake Enterprises to employee adults with developmental disorders to create and produce the Care Cups, which is awesome! They intend to give adults with autism an opportunity they don’t normally get- the opportunity for real, full time employment, making a product they can be proud of. We’re so excited about employment opportunities for the developmentally disabled!

We love to support this cause! But we can’t do it alone. Oak City Roasters needs funds for equipment and other costs associated with starting such an awesome business. These crucial funds come from generous people like you, our dear Sugarfans, and you are the ones who can make this amazing dream a reality. Even if it’s just $5, every donation makes a difference. You can visit their website to find more information and donate to this amazing project!
