Sometimes I have a hard time working the storefront and “selling” cupcakes (THANK GOD FOR KEVIN!). It’s not that I don’t enjoy interacting with customers, meeting new people, catching up with our regulars, etc. Here’s why…People often ask, “did you make these” and for some reason when I answer, “yes” – I just feel awkward. It’s strange for me to say, “this one is so good” because it kind of comes off as arrogant (contrarily, Kevin can sit behind the counter and authentically say, “my wife made these & I think they are so good,” and it’s romantic and lovely). My point, it’s hard for me to “sell” the cupcakes.
But I have to open up, totally unashamed, and say that the dream bar and chocolate peanut butter pretzel cupcakes are insane (there I go sounding conceited, so please forgive me!). Several hours after my baking shift this morning, I actually drove to the shop to be a customer and snag a dream bar cupcake because ever since I ate one yesterday, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about how badly I wanted to eat another one. And just now, I ate not one, but 2 chocolate peanut butter pretzel cupcakes. I am so buried in cupcakes all the time that I typically just eat bites of the new flavors as a quality control obligation, but with these 2 flavors on the line-up this week, I am doomed!
However, after offering 270 cupcakes flavors, I’ve learned that there are flavors and preferences for every individual and you just may not agree with my fondness for dream bar & choc. p.b. pretzel cupcakes :)
