Sugar, Spice, Both Are Nice in Spicy Cupcakes at Blue Bird

It’s true: We have a love affair of the heated variety. Spicy, sugary, salty, savory… You name, if we can combine a little peppery kick to the palate and a little sweet decadence, we’re in love. And it seems Orlando Home and Garden is, too, because in their April edition they’ve named our Vanilla Black Pepper Cupcake and our new Hunka Chunka Burning Love Cupcake among some of Orlando’s great examples of spicy cupcakes. Author Belinda Hulin covers the many ways Orlandoans love to spice up their edibles from the...

Visiting O-town without kids? We invite you to take a peek at Blue Bird Bake Shop and many other local favorites, including Cask and Larder, East End Market, and Redlight Redlight, as featured in Travel Channel’s Guide to Orlando for Adults! It’s no news to us Orlandoans that there is more to the city than theme parks.

A Fairy Tale Cupcake Befitting Cinderella

To say we were honored is an understatement, having been approached by Christina Thomas with the GO Epicurista blog and challenged to create a new cupcake flavor in celebration of the release of Disney’s new live-action version of Cinderella. How would we capture the romance of the timeless story, the iconic images of pumpkin coaches and sparking ball gowns? What was born out of that challenge is the Fairy Tale Strawberry and Vanilla Swirl cupcake pictured above, which also turned out to pair fabulously with a bottle of Fairy Tale...

Virgin Atlantic Airways Visits Our Orlando Cupcake Bakery

Seems word of our little Orlando cupcake bakery has reached jolly ole’ England! Just a few weeks ago Justin Braun—for Virgin Atlantic Airlines’ blog—profiled the Audubon Park and Milk District neighborhoods, including our very own bake shop. Writes Justin, for visitors to Orlando our city offers more than just theme parks. He includes other cultural and foodie destinations, such as East End Market, Stardust Coffee and Video, and Redlight Redlight, to name a few. And, of course, we like to think that no visit to Audubon Park is...

National Cupcake Day Celebrated by Blue Bird

Trust me when I say it’s never easy seeing yourself on TV. I was so nervous, but what better excuse than National Cupcake Day to visit the great folks at Fox 35 to share our love of the confections?! I was attempting to locate and share with you some history on the origins of National Cupcake Day, but that information seems to be hard to come by. Suffice it to say that I think people simply love the memories associated with the uncomplicated cupcake. They’re not pretentious, they’re just for you, and they tend to carry with...
