Flying Pig Cake Pop visits Kings Island Amusement Park

Flying Pig Cake Pop visits Kings Island Amusement Park

Today our Flying Pig Cake Pop visits Kings Island Amusement Park just north of Cincinnati, OH!

Flying Pig Cake Pop

We couldn’t even get past the closed gates in the middle of winter to even take this picture.  Kings Island makes me so ready for spring and summer.  The roller coasters and water rides are as much a part of summer around here as Reds Baseball.

I don’t think I need to tell you about the beast or the Smurf Ice Cream.   Those are the favorites and it looks like this summer brings us a new roller coaster, The Banshee.  Yes, bring on another summer season!  Cue the lines and we are ready to go.

The Flying Pig Cake Pop will visit a different location every day for the next 11 days.  Join with us on Facebook to see where he will go tomorrow.  Flying Pig Cake Pops are a vanilla flavored cake pop with candy surprises inside!  You can find them daily at our Montgomery location.

What is your favorite part of Kings Island?

 

Flying Pig Cake Pop visits Music Hall, Cincinnati, OH

Flying Pig Cake Pop visits Music Hall, Cincinnati, OH

Today our Flying Pig Cake Pop visits the iconic Music Hall in Cincinnati, OH!

Flying Pig Cake Pop

I don’t think there is anything more beautiful than Music Hall.  The majestic building stands tall with such pride in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood and right off of the newly rebuilt, Washington Park.

It has both history and continued cultural influence in Cincinnati.   It is the home of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and if you didn’t see Luminocity last year, all I have to say is WOW!  If you didn’t love this building before that,  you will now!

Something that I didn’t know before writing this short little blog,  is that there is also a history of paranormal activities that are associated with the building.  Cincy Ghost Hunters offers tours of the building and discusses the past and history of the building and paranormal activity!

The Flying Pig Cake Pop will visit a different location every day for the next 12 days.  Join with us on Facebook to see where he will go tomorrow.  Flying Pig Cake Pops are a vanilla flavored cake pop with candy surprises inside!  You can find them daily at our Montgomery location.

Do you have a favorite memory of Music Hall or know of interesting activities that take place there?  Leave us a comment and let us know!

Flying Pig Cake Pop visits Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati, OH

Flying Pig Cake Pop visits Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati, OH

Our Flying Pig Cake Pop visits Great American Ball Park today in Cincinnati, OH!

Great American Ball Park

Is there anything more iconic than Reds Baseball in Cincinnati, OH?  This non-native has to think not!  The first year that I lived here, I had no idea that Opening Day was a virtual holiday and the parade was the cornerstone!    It didn’t take long to understand and appreciate what baseball means to this city and how quickly you grow to love the stadium,  hot dogs, cold beer and an evening game!

Great American Ball Park is the current home to the Cincinnati Reds.  Located downtown and in the now growing Banks District, grabbing dinner and a beer before heading to the game is easy and there are so many options.

I still don’t follow baseball as much as those around me,  but I hear there is always a possibility for a great team this year.  I can’t wait for long summer afternoon games and hopes of a championship season!

The Flying Pig Cake Pop will visit a different location every day for the next 13 days.  Join with us on Facebook to see where he will go tomorrow.  Flying Pig Cake Pops are a vanilla flavored cake pop with candy surprises inside!  You can find them daily at our Montgomery location.

What are your favorite memories of The Reds, Great American Ball Park and Cincinnati?

Cupcake Crazy Flying Pig Pop

Cupcake Crazy Flying Pig Pop

It’s not too often that we are this excited to announce a new product, but we love our Cupcake Crazy Flying Pig Pops so much that we couldn’t wait to share them with you.cupcake crazy flying pig cake pop

There are a million things to love about Cincinnati!  Whether you are spending a summer night in our thriving downtown or tasting a quintessential flavor of Cincy like Skyline Chili or a favorite flavor of Graeter’s Ice Cream, you can’t help but find something that makes you smile.  Did you see the wonderful article last week in National Geographic?  We were so excited to see our city loved and appreciated.

Lisa Ebbert, owner of Cupcake Crazy in Cincinnati grew up in St. Clairsville, Ohio  and relocated to Cincinnati to raise her children. Her three children were all raised here in Anderson Township. Lauren and Kristen now operate Cupcake Crazy with their mom in their hometown. Their brother, Aaron helps out in his spare time as well.

This year,  when Lauren decided to run the full Flying Pig Marathon with her friends for the first time it sparked our creative juices.  Not only to celebrate Lauren running the race, but celebrating Cincinnati and everything that it has to offer. We were so excited to see our  facebook fans seem to have a deep appreciation for this city too and we were thrilled to see how excited they were for us to share our Cincinnati Flying Pig Pop with them earlier this week!

Thank you so much for making Cupcake Crazy in Cincinnati so much fun.  We love being a part of this community.

 

Cupcakes and Weddings – Who is that guy?

Cupcakes and Weddings – Who is that guy?

We are so fortunate to have the best brides!  They seem to love cupcakes and weddings just as much as we do! (not to mention cakes, cake pops and cake push ups!)

At the beginning of the year I reached out to several of our brides and asked them if they would mind sending us some pictures of their events so that we could see how it all ended up!  We are always there setting up before all the decorations are finished,  often way before guests arrive and we can’t help but to wonder what it looks like at the very end!  Plus,  we never get to see them cut that first slice of cake for themselves!

Cupcake and Wedding

When Jessica shared her pictures with me,  I was thrilled.  She held her wedding at The Madison Event Center.  The cupcake tower looked great with all the various flavors they had chosen.  Isn’t Jessica gorgeous in her gown? We were thrilled to hear that Jessica and her guests loved everything!

And then, there was this photo…..

Wedding Photo Bomb

It made me giggle to myself and I couldn’t wait to write a blog post about a photo bomb!!  We all have a picture of two like this from a guy (it is usually a guy right?!) that we may or may not know.   Weddings are no different!  Congratulations to Jessica and thanks to Penny Hodge Photography for the beautiful images.  It looks like you had a wonderful wedding and we wish many years of as much fun!

Do you have any photo bombs from your wedding?

If you are thinking about having cupcakes and a cupcake tower at your wedding,  please be sure to check out our page.   You can contact Lisa directly at 513-984-1100 to schedule your tasting.  We would love to be part of your special day!

Gender Reveal Cakes are a Fun Surprise!

Gender Reveal Cakes are a Fun Surprise!

Gender reveal cakes are so much fun and quite the rage these days!  Just announcing on facebook  is no longer the ‘thing’ to do!  –  Invite your friends and share the surprise and fun with them!

A few years ago, when Dora, owner of Viva Bella Events, asked us to make some cake pops for the gender reveal of her second daughter,  it was a relatively new concept and unchartered territory.  Now,  we make cakes, cake pops and cupcakes that can all reveal the gender of the new baby.    The key is to keep the outside relatively simple so that it doesn’t give the surprise away! Cupcake Crazy Gender Reveal Cake

And how much fun is to be surprised by what sex your new baby will be?  —  We love the face on Heidi as she pull out the pink cake to find out her second was going to be a girl!

IMG_4597

We are excited to be featured on Fox19 at 9:40AM this morning to talk about gender reveal and this latest trend in how you may be sharing the good news with family and friends.   Be sure to tune in.  You can also find more information on our website or call and inquire anytime with Lisa at 513-984-1100.

What other creative ways did you tell your friends and family about the sex of your baby?

Fun Cake Pop Shapes for Valentine’s Day

Fun Cake Pop Shapes for Valentine’s Day

After the holidays are over,  January brings new opportunities for creating fun cake pop shapes for Valentine’s Day.

At Cupcake Crazy, we are a small, locally owned business.  Lisa Ebbert owns the business with her daughters Lauren and Kristen.   Everyone plays a very significant part of the business and creating these great Cake Pops falls under Kristen’s responsibility!   We just love what she does.

For Valentine’s this year, we have roses, hearts and teddy bears.   You can be certain there will always be a selection in store daily. You can also visit our online store and have items shipped nationwide.

Valentine’s Day Cake Pop Arrangements

Valentine’s Day Cake Pop Arrangements

If you are looking for a creative way of saying “I love you”,  rather than sending roses, consider sending a Cupcake Crazy Valentine’s Day Cake Pop Arrangement!

Over 119 million stems of roses are sent every Valentine’s Day (because I trust everything I read on the internet).  Although we don’t disagree with the rose trend, there is something to be said for adding some creativity and flavor!  If you aren’t familiar with what a cake pop may be, you should see our webpage that describes them first!

Then you can really start to think about how you want to send your Valentine’s Day Cake Pop Arrangement.  We do customize some colors and flavors,  but you can’t really go wrong with our signature chocolate cake pop and a personal favorite of mine is the raspberry sugar cookie!  Valentine Cake Pop ArrangementAbove pictured on the left is a small arrangement in a red tin, it includes (4) regular cake pops decorated in red and pink and (2) large hearts.   The red chevron box (oh yea, have you heard of our obsession with chevron?) includes a much larger assortment of cake pops and hearts.  On the bottom right you can see our Hugs & Kisses arrangement.   All are available in-store daily Monday – Saturday.  It’s always best to place orders in advance by calling 513-984-1100 just to ensure that the selection you want is available!

Are you a traditionalist and still send flowers for Valentine’s Day or do you look for something a little different and unique?  Let us know in the comments and Happy Valentine’s Day!
