Classic Sweetness: Vanessa + Skeeter

When we think of a classy, elegant wedding, Vanessa and Skeeter’s are definitely one for the books! Planned by the talented Pearl Events and held as the gorgeous Hotel Granduca, vintage and elegance painted the room with pieces of décor from Premiere down to Vanessa’s stunning cream colored wedding gown from Serendipity Bridal.

It was a joyous and tearful wedding as guests gazed over these two lovebirds finally tieing the knot with much love and sincerity. With delicious tastes catered from Hotel Granduca and awesome tunes from the band London Calling, guests were in for a treat as they mingled and celebrated all night.

Speaking about TREATS – perhaps the sweetest treat of them all were the “his & her” roaming candy trays The Cupcake Bar created and personalized just for Vanessa and Skeeter on their special day. Yummy options on Skeeter’s tray were candy cigarettes (a crowd fav!), sugar babies and hot tamales. While on Vanessa’s tray, guests indulged in rock candy swizzle sticks, gummy worms, and skittles – there was surely something for everyone! People enjoyed creating their own candy bag as a late night take away mixing and matching candy from both trays, helping themselves to refills as they snacked all night.

However, the event that REALLY stole the show, was when Vanessa and Skeeter asked to each take a turn passing out the goodies! The crowd’s reaction was priceless and we have never seen bigger smiles on this happy couple’s faces. The Cupcake Bar was ecstatic to play a part in Vanessa and Skeeter’s special day and loved finding creative ways to show off both their fun personality and taste buds in an interactive edible way.

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.
