Making Life A Little Sweeter On Valentine’s Day

(văl’ən-tīn’) A gift sent as a token of love to one’s sweetheart on Saint Valentine’s Day.

Our Favorite Time of Year! Not only will it be our 4th, yep….four years(!), Anniversary of the shop, it’s also our favorite holiday here at Bliss. What a better way to say you are loved, then with a beautifully wrapped up cupcake? Or Cookie…? Or Cake Pop….? You get the idea.

This Valentine’s we will feature the beloved flavors of Pink ChampagneOoh La La and of course….Sweet, Salty & Spicy. The last takes Salted Caramel to a whole new level with the help of the tiniest of spice ~ but enough to leave your tongue with a little kick! Our daily flavors will be dressed in their best and as always, you can pre-order Gluten-Free/Vegan Cupcakes, Cookies and Cakes! (No Valentine should be left without a special treat.) For Cookies we will have the mouth-watering Jumbo Drops (chocolate, peanut butter and oatmeal), Chocolate Sugar Cookie Sandwiches, Cut-Out Heart Sugar  cookies to smother your Valentine with ‘X’s & ‘O’s’ and Cookie Cakes ~ ready to be adorned with your message of love.

Perhaps one of the best new additons to our Bliss-ful family is the all Natural Sprinkles & Colors  that can be found on our Gluten-Free & Vegan offerings. Fancy That is now offering a whole line of them in her pop-up shop in the bakery, giving you access to a truer, more natural option. We will happily use these in your custom orders if your heart desires!

Now What do you with these beautiful creations…..hmmmm. Let me see….

Of Course! We will send you off with a box  wrapped in velvety ribbon or you can always pick up some extra help from Fancy That and Inkberry. Check it out, the cupcakes fit in them beautifully:

The final temptress…The Cupcake Shake. Serious Goodness. We take the cupcake of your choice, the ice cream of your choice and whirl it together. The result?

Pure Heaven.

Top Wedding Trends of 2013

It’s that time of year again when we start planning! Planning our goals for the New Year, what trips we’d like to take and newlywed couples everywhere begin to look toward their up-coming weddings. Bridal shows are popping up everywhere and everyone is hoping to find elements that will make their special day just that, special. It’s fun to look at what is trending and see what snipets can be implemented to make the ceremony perfectly you. So what are the wedding trends for 2013?

Think Patterns & Prints, Vintage, Lace, Love Birds & Feathers, Fun elements (such as the ‘Reception Lounge’ and fabulous hues of muted, deep rich colors. Here is just one of the many links you can find regarding the Top Wedding Trends of 2013 from five different bloggers: http://www.weddingblogs100.com/2013-wedding-trends.htmlWe are loving this Mint Green Montage from Perfect Palette.

Brides aren’t the only ones doing the planning these days! Grooms be sure to check out some of the blogs tailored just for you such as: http://www.themanregistry.com/

In 2013, we expect the average cost of a wedding to increase slightly, partly due to spending by the groom.  As more grooms begin playing an active role in the planning details of their wedding (a growing trend we’ve seen over the past 2 years), certain items such as groom cakes, groom rings, accessories, intricate honeymoon plans and unique groom gifts could significantly impact most wedding budgets, causing engaged couples to ultimately spend more.  Most of the grooms that we’ve spoken to state that their bride-to-be is totally on board for this increase in spending since it is as much his wedding as it is hers. – [Mason, WeddingStats.org]
Regardless of which trend you fancy, here at Bliss we can help bring them to life! (And without breaking the bank!) Be sure to schedule a complimentary tasting with our wedding consultant, Caitlinn, today!
