Cupcake Carnivale’s Holiday Menu

Things are really busy over here (my Dessert Tour on Groupon has been doing very well!), but I did want to share some beautiful pictures that I took. And of course they are cupcake related! Cupcake Carnivale, one of my favorite cupcake trucks here in Philly, had a terrific holiday menu. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…

My Dessert Tour is now on Groupon!

I have some pretty exciting news to share with you! My Dessert Tour is now on Groupon! SideTour was acquired by Groupon about a month ago. My Dessert Tour was hand-picked to be featured on the Groupon platform. So that means a lot more exposure! How exciting! So if you’re in the Philadelphia area, please come out and join me! I’d love to share my favorite desserts with you!

So you all know I’m hosting  a Dessert Tour here in Philadelphia through SideTour.

So far I’ve hosted one, and there was a really good turn out.

I’m pretty sure everyone loved the desserts and they were all full by the time we left the last stop.

Cookies, Cupcakes, Blondies and Ice Cream. Yum!

Sweetbox Opens a Storefront Shop in Philadelphia!

Ahhh, Cupcakes. You know I can’t get enough of them. Our sweet friends at Sweetbox Cupcake Truck recently opened up a storefront location Sweetbox Shop here in Philadelphia in the Washington Square West neighborhood. And you KNOW I had to check it out. Their address is 339 South 13th Street (between Pine & Panama), Philadelphia, PA. So what that pretty much comes down to is that it’s way too easy for me to get there!

I wasn’t able to make it to their Opening Day Celebration but I did stop by the next day. It’s such a cute little shop in a wonderful location! I’m sure everyone on that block is so excited to have a Cupcake Shop as their neighbor! I know I’d be thrilled!

I picked up a 4 pack of Cupcakes that included Chocolate GanacheCookies & Cream, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Yards Brawler Toffee Crunch.

Now I know that I’ve already sampled a few of these flavors already but I had to share the beautiful pictures with you!


Chocolate Ganache. You know my other half was thrilled about this one. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! This is a Ghirardelli Chocolate Cupcake topped with Chocolate Ganache and decorated with a red heart. [Read more...]

It’s a Cupcake Carnivale in Philly!

One thing that I love about Philly is the Cupcake scene. It really is awesome. There are so many wonderful Cupcake trucks and Cupcake shops that I love to support. I’ve tried Cupcakes from many shops/trucks including (but definitely not limited to) Pamcakes, Sweetbox Truck and Ms Goody’s. And let me tell you I love all of these cupcakes but there’s always room for more!

I finally had the chance to try out Cupcakes from Cupcake Carnivale. They primarily sell out of their mobile Cupcake truck throughout Philadelphia Monday through Friday. They’ve never been around my area until now! When I heard that they were going to be at Love Park I was so excited! I’ve been following them on Twitter for quite some time and they are awesome! So on their first day selling at Love Park I stopped by on my lunch hour to pick up some Cupcakes. Let me tell you how impossible it was to have those Cupcakes sitting on my desk taunting me all day long!

I got a 6 pack of Cupcakes so that I could try one of each flavor. The following Cupcakes were on the menu that day: Orange Tilt-a-Whirl, Vanilla Sideshow, Chocolate Jubilee, Red Velvet Carnivale, Luscious Lemon and Chocolate Oreo Cookies & Cream Team.
