Must blog, want to blog, PROMISE TO BLOG!!!!

Why design a blog if you never use it???
As you can see, our last blog post was in January 2010. Well,  it's now December 2010 and you haven't heard a peep from us!
We have had one heck of a busy year and although we hope 2011 will be even busier, we do promise to make time to BLOG!

Until next time, we wish you a safe and happy holiday!

Little Cakes Cupcakes - 2009 in review!

It's not too late to say "Happy New Year" is it??

We have been so busy baking and delivering our yummy goodies to the cupcake lovers of Ottawa and it's hard to believe it's almost the middle of January already!!!! Time flies when you're having fun :)

2009 was a great year for both of us. Little Cakes officially launched in March 2009 after 6 months of planning, research, recipe testing, logo design, marketing, etc.

Our first order was a baby shower in March 2009 and we catered our first wedding in August 2009.
From there, the ball started rolling and we've been catering anniversary parties, bachelorettes, baby showers, birthday parties, family reunions, weddings, dinner parties, retirement dinners....and the list goes on! When we chose our tagline - "cupcakes for all occasions...and just because!", little did we know how true it would be!

Many students at Carleton University and Ottawa U have enjoyed our cupcakes this past year thanks to special birthday deliveries sent by mom and pop! Who wouldn't want cupcakes delivered right to their door in residence??

We took part in a few events in 2009 where our cupcakes or gift certificates were donated in support of charity:

1. FLAUNT Ottawa - June 2009  in support of "The Peter Munk Cardiac Center"

2. Ottawa Bell Canada team ("Women in Bell Business Markets") - September 2009 in support of "CIBC Run For The Cure" - 

3. BBQ for the Puppy Mill Bust - October 2009 in support of "Bullies in Need" -

4. Plasco Energy Group United Way Campaign - November 2009 in support of The United Way -

Watch for Little Cakes Cupcakes in February 2010 at "Bringing Back the 80's" in support of The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Also stay tuned as we announce details of our first monthly "Sampling Night". We will be offering monthly sampling nights where you and your
fiancé, mother, father, best friend, grandmother, etc., can come and taste our cupcakes, see our cupcake stands available for rental and chat with Colleen and I about catering your wedding cupcakes!

May 2010 bring you much happiness and love, good health, and prosperity!
Thanks for a wonderful kick-off year!!!All the best,

Shakira & Colleen
