Unicorns, Candy, Sparkles and Doughnuts! Oh My!

Unicorns, candy, sparkles and doughnuts – only in a perfect world would all these things live under the same roof. However, we’re here to tell you that roof DID exist and it was in Travisso! They hosted a lovely Ladies Home Tour showing off some of their gorgeous properties serving mimosas, small bites, and our services, which brought in the sweet, candy and sparkles into effect!

Guests were able to enjoy a variety of doughnuts served in the most customized way, allowing them to choose their doughnut, filling, drizzle, and toppings with our interactive doughnut bar. However, the talk of the event was our edible doughnut wall! People had to try it for themselves, as they were in disbelief that they could choose the perfect doughnut from the wall and then customize it onsite. Keeping in the unicorn and glitter theme, we glazed our doughnuts with pink, purple, and turquoise icing, only to finish it off with (our special touch) some edible glitter. It was a doughnut (almost) too fun to eat!

We kept Travisso in mind, as branding was very important to them and the goal was to get the hashtags going. We worked with our vendor to create the perfect #Travisso sign, so that guests knew which social media hashtag to use to win fun prizes!

As doughnuts were being served in one house, we had a second gal roaming between different properties serving candy to hungry visitors off of our roaming treats tray. Branding our tray with Travisso lollipops was just one way we helped promote to guests that Travisso is a SWEET place to live. Making sure not to neglect anyone’s pallet, we served grapefruit sour gummies, strawberry banana gummy bears, chocolate cherry cordials, and even rock candy crystal lollipops – just to name a few. Children and adults alike, had a blast grabbing a handful of candy necklaces just to wear bling you can eat!

Giving Back – Cupcake Style!

#PimpinJoy is a movement as described on the hit radio show “Bobby Bones”. It’s a celebration dedicated to people anywhere and everywhere who may be going through a rough time in their life, but they choose to find and spread joy.

Here at The Cupcake Bar, some of our core values touch on this very same message:

Community – Caring / Giving Back

Helping People – Service

This month, we wanted to focus on finding ways our team could give back to the community through time and by spreading joy. So we put our cupcake brainstorming hats on to try and come up with the best ways everyone on our team could participate and most importantly – could bring a little joy and sweetness to the people (and animals) who need it most.

Firefighters and first responders. After carefully mapping our ways to stop by each fire station, our cupcakes were delightedly accepted by those who dedicate their lives to saving ours. Helping these first responders feel valued (and fed!) is all we wanted to do, and they couldn’t had been happier.  We were able to drop off to about 10+ stations around the Austin area!

Pay it forward. Here, we hit straight into #PimpinJoy at its roots by generously doing a random act of kindness to anyone at anytime. Some of us bought a stranger coffee, offered to wash their neighbor’s car, or passed out sack lunches to the homeless people. A little bit can go a long way and all we asked for in return, was to pay it forward to someone else in need.

Puppylove. Want to know what the hardest thing about volunteering at the Austin Animal Center was? – Not being able to squeeze every pup and kitty in our cars to take them home with us! However, what we found out, was even just a 20 minute walk with some one-on-one playtime can make ALL THE DIFFERENCE in these animals lives. The goal is get every pup social able, well behaved, and healthy in order for them to be adoptable-ready for families or anyone looking for a furry friend. These sweet pups were all so kind and YES, we are making arrangements to go back because who can turn down these sweet sweet faces.

Giving back has always been something The Cupcake Bar focuses on and tries to practice all year long. What will YOU do to help make your community one to proudly live in? #Pimp a little joy in someone’s life today! You never know who might need it.
