The Bridal Boudoir Affair

This August we had the pleasure of working with Maddy K. at one of the summer weddings we catered. Maddy loved our cupcakes so much she invited us to participate in The Bridal Boudoir Affair which will be held on December 6, 2009 at the Opus Hotel in Montreal.

The Bridal Boudoir Affair is a cocktail party dedicated to stylish, sophisticated Montreal brides and their girlfriends. Throughout the afternoon incredible music will set the chic tone with lots of amazing giveaways, fascinating guest speakers and an awe-inspiring fashion show. This will allow for brides to experience the fun of planning their wedding with the most special women in their lives, and give the grooms a break!

Brides will also get a chance to meet and mingle with the carefully selected wedding specialists that will be there to inspire and help plan a stylish, sophisticated and unique wedding.

Tickets are only $75 which is a steal considering all brides attending the event will be given “The Diva Card” which entitles them to a 10% discount for all vendors in attendance as well as a gift bag valued at over $100 and a free Maddy K. honeymoon planning package valued at $1500.

We are excited to announce that we have been given a free pair of Bridal Boudoir Affair tickets to give away! The lucky winner will be the 10th bride-to-be that sends an e-mail with the subject "Bridal Boudoir" to The only catch? You have to be either a Fan of Clever Cupcakes on Facebook or following us on Twitter to be eligible. The winner will be announced on Monday November 30, 2009.

The Kid Scoop Shopping Extravaganza

Cupcake Camp Montreal was a HUGE success but I am going to have to let the suspense build a bit longer. I will be writing up an in depth recap of the event, but first there are some big events coming up next week that we are participating in that I want everyone to hear about.

On December 2, 2009 from 3-9pm The Kid Scoop, Montreal's all-in-one reference for kids activities, is holding a Shopping Extravaganza at Le Living Room and Clever Cupcakes has been invited to participate.

We will be selling cupcakes throughout the event so please drop by our table to say hello!

Cupcake Camp Montreal!

In case you haven't heard Clever Cupcakes is sponsoring Cupcake Camp Montreal! Considering the event is on Sunday, this blog post is a bit late, but we have been busy working on so much promotion for the event we haven't had time to toot our own horn!

What does being a sponsor for Cupcake Camp Montreal mean? Well, to begin with we will be donating 200 cupcakes to the event! The cost of admission is $10 which entitles you to 3 cupcake tickets and a coffee. Where is the money going? Directly to Kids Help Phone. So, that is another way of saying all the proceeds from our 200 cupcakes are going straight to Kids Help Phone. How cool is that?

To help raise awareness about the event we baked and decorated cupcakes for a segment promoting Cupcake Camp Montreal on CTV's Sunday Bite with Nadine Ishak.

Here is a photo of the decorated cupcakes taken by the talented Eva Blue. From left to right the fondant decorations we handcrafted are the Kids Help Phone logo, the Cupcake Camp logo, the City of Montreal logo, and the CTV logo.

And here is a photo I took during the filming.

In case you missed the segment when it originally aired it is now available to be viewed online.

To all Montrealer's, I hope to see you at the event on Sunday between 2-5pm at Bitoque. We have come up with a special cupcake recipe especially for Cupcake Camp Montreal, and our cupcakes will be available throughout the day. Still not convinced? Did I mention there will be cupcake contests and celebrity judges including the one and only Ricardo?

If you want to bake and donate cupcakes of your own Cupcake Camp Montreal is still looking for cupcake donations. The deadline is Friday, click HERE to register.

Sweet First Birthday Cupcakes

I am sensing a theme! Last weekend we made cupcakes for yet another little girl's first birthday! This Mom was less adamant about everything being pink so I managed to sneak some yellow into the decorations and try out some new designs.

I was really happy with how they turned out, especially the tiaras and the butterflies! The cut out hearts are pretty cute too. Okay, they all turned out so sweet I can't really pick my favourite!

All I See is Pink!

In addition to the Pink Princess cupcakes we had two other little girl's first birthday parties the same weekend! I bet you can't guess what colour those cupcakes were? There was so much pink I got confused and actually forgot to take a picture of one of the orders!

The cupcakes that I did remember to take a picture of were topped with handcrafted fondant butterflies and flowers.

Mom also requested a smaller version of our Giant Cupcake made especially for the birthday girl.

Just wanted to thank you for the gorgeous cupcakes!! It was a real hit!! They were to die for and so, so beautiful! I’m looking forward to my next order...

Cupcakes Fit For a Princess!

It has been a crazy few weeks! Time to catch up on some recent orders while I have a few free minutes.

These cupcakes were for a little girl's first birthday party which was held during first weekend in November. Mom requested something very sweet, and very pink, fit for a little princess.

We also made a co-ordinating double height 5" chocolate mudcake topped with a handcrafted fondant little princess. Almost too cute to eat, if it wasn't all so yummy!
