Support Robicelli's!!! C'mon You Know You Want To!

Not a whole lot of baking is going on in the house, even tho there is a list on my fridge of things I hope to get to, and blog. But there is an important food related matter at hand. The place where I am interning, and learning tons from, is having a fund raising campaign and even if i reach only a few people here, it's worth it!

The couple who own/run Robicelli's are really great people. They took us interns in and have treated us like we are really a part of their company and their family. They are just good people with big dreams and they need some financial help to keep it going. I'm biased BUT the truth is the flavors and quality of these cupcakes doesn't compare to anything else on the cupcake market today!

So spare a few bucks, support a local business, help them open their newest shop and inadvertently keep me working for them! I would really love to stick with these great people beyond my internship. This is a chance for me to work doing something I truly love, not just a job!

What's been cooking.....

So I haven't updated in a while because I haven't baked at home in a few weeks. Why you ask? Because I have the unique opportunity to get an apprenticeship with a cupcake bakery! I found out about it through a friend and after emailing got a confirmation to start the next week! Where is it at? Robicelli's! Go read the ridiculous flavors they have coming in the next few weeks. Make yourself drool by reading the previous flavors. Seriously.

I have been learning a ton, even tho it's only been 2 nights working there. It's been great. It is so nice to have a place to go to that I actually enjoy! Don't get me wrong, it's tough work standing all day and leaning over a huge industrial sized sink- but its already been worth it! These insanely good cupcakes are made by a husband and wife team and now a few of us interns, thats it! It amazes me, especially that the quality is so good! They deliver to a bunch of places in NY and Brooklyn so go find some and eat them!!!!!!

I'll get back into some experiments at home in the coming weeks, I have a few things I have been planning to try. But for now, I am happily baking on Tuesday nights!!
