Site Updates Coming Soon!

Whew, just got back from the craft show and boy was it getting hot out there! The turnout was great, we sold quite a few cakes, cupcakes, and truffles. Thanks for everyone who stopped by to say hi and all our new friends that picked up business cards!

I'll be updating the site with all of our new cakes shortly, but first I must bask in the loving embrace of air conditioning.

Craft Show Today!

We are heading out to the craft show now. Hope to see you there!

Craft Show in Coppell

The Curious Cake Shoppe will be at the Coppell Crafts Festival in conjunction with the Coppell Farmer's Market on Saturday. Last minute, I know, but trust me... I just barely found out myself!

We'd love for you to stop by and say hi. We've been working really hard to prepare a lot of new goodies for the show and can't wait for you to see them!

For some reason, they don't have all the information posted on their website, so here is all the info if you're interested.

Free produce bag, free Hard 8 Pit Bar BQ sandwich, craft vendors, pony rides, face painting, music & more!
, pick up your free cotton, drawstring produce bag. Bring it back each week to replace a plastic sack or two. Use it to contain produce like peaches, green beans, okra (when it comes in), squash, etc. Great for refrigerator storage, too.
Shop. Check out over 30 craft and information booths situated along Bethel Road. As for produce, you'll start to find shelled lady cream peas and purple hull peas, a few cantaloupe, strawberries, peaches, little green plums, squashes, green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, potatoes, onions and more.

Eat. Enjoy a complimentary barbecue sandwich courtesy of Hard 8 Pit Bar BQ. Their restaurant is located just west of the market on Bethel Road, so be sure to visit them on another Saturday after you finish your shopping. Hot dogs will be available, too.
Play. Free pony rides, face painting, domino games, music and fun! Check out the Edison phonograph, too.
Be sure to bring a cooler so you can store your meats and produce while you eat and play. For your convenience, an ATM machine is located inside the Coppell Deli.
We're glad you shop at our market!!

The Coppell Farmers Market is located at the corners of Bethel and So. Coppell Roads.

It's my understanding that the hours are the same as the Farmer's Market, usually 8 a.m. until 12 or 1 p.m.

Hope to see you there!

Finally, the reveal!

Two Tier Elephant Diaper Cake For Boy (front)

I made this cake for a dear friend of mine a while ago, but was just now able to meet up with her and deliver it! I just wanted to share it, because I really like the way it turned out. The cake is Made From Scratch, which means everything in it (except the elephant, pacifier, and diapers) are handmade!

A Curious Adventure

I'm writing today to announce the grand opening of "The Curious Cake Shoppe"! It's my own quaint little corner of the internet and I hope everyone enjoys it. Please feel free to pass it around if you'd like, or even to gawk at it and wonder who has such a strange and unusual hobby. It's okay, really. I still gawk. But the fact of the matter is, I enjoy doing it. And life's too short not to embrace the things that make you happy.

I hope you like it!
