James Beard & Food Bank NYC Event

Hi Luxies!

LuxSugar cupcakes will be in attendance at the Farm Stand Event at the James Beard House tomorrow. This is a great event and we are excited that our boxed mini cupcakes will be the favor for all the attendees.

More about the event is below:

The Farm Stand

James Beard Foundation Greens and Food Bank For New York City Young Professionals are joining forces once again for an evening of all things local and sustainable. Guests will sample great food prepared by some of New York City's most talented farm-dedicated chefs and herb- and flower-infused cocktails from master mixologist Junior Merino. Local wines and Stella beers will also be served. Guests will have a chance to win restaurant gift certificates and other prizes as they support two great causes. Funds raised from this event will support both the James Beard Foundation's mission and Food Bank For New York City’s efforts to purchase farm shares from Roxbury Farms so members of their Community Kitchen will have access to fresh fruits and vegetables during the growing season.


PS- here are some behind the scenes pix of our minicupcake favors at the event.

LuxSugar hits the high seas!

Hi Luxies :-)

Last Friday LuxSugar hit the high seas with a wedding order for 250 jumbo boxed Lemon Blueberry cupcakes as guest favors and a wedding cake to be delivered to the Lady Windridge yacht.

These cupcakes were for a lovely couple (Theresa and Joseph) who were so super sweet and very in love.

After sampling a few of our flavors Theresa and Joseph created their own unique flavor:

Lemon Blueberry Cupcake with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting

250 jumbo boxed cupcakes and a wedding cake walked the plank on a beautiful summer evening.

Here are some behind the scene pix:

About 50 of the 250 boxes and no paper cuts :-)

We had a great time with this order and the yacht was gorgeous.

Congrats to Theresa and Joseph!


Karen Seiger from Markets of NYC was in attendance and took some beautiful pictures of our cupcakes and the happy couple.
