October means it's finally FALL! And we are excited to tell you all the cool things were are doing in the bakery. And yes, October is the debut of the new fall flavors and happy hour all week (from Friday, October 1 to Thursday, October 7), so have a look below for a sneak peek.
October is also National Dessert Month, so you can see why we love October so much!
The Fall Flavor Battle
Thank you to everyone who participated, sampled, and voted for our new and returning flavors. We have such a great time with the flavor battle, and we are glad you like it too. Our next change of flavors will be in January, which means we'll have a new flavor battle ready in December.
DIY kits for Fall and Halloween
Since many have asked, yes, we will have Fall and Halloween-themed DIY kits for cupcakes and cookies. Please give us a call to order, and we'll have one made and waiting for you. We ask for a day’s notice for the DIY kits.
The DIY cookie kits come with eight cookies, icing and sprinkles. And the cupcake kits will have six cupcakes, icing and sprinkles. The DIY kits are a great cool-weather indoor project with a super sweet reward at the end!
And, if you're using the kits, don't forget to tag us in your posts; we love to see your creations!
Secret Word Wednesday
Each Wednesday, you can score a FREE cupcake with your purchase if you remember to say the secret word while you’re in the bakery. Here’s a hint: you’ll also find the secret word in our stories on social media each Wednesday morning.
· October 6: pumpkin
· October 13: dessert
· October 20: chocolate
· October 27: anniversary
Other Fun Stuff this Month:
October 1 is “Pumpkin Spice Day.” There are actually quite a few pumpkin-themed days this month, and we'll celebrate by kicking off our new flavors with a something pumpkin each day on the new menu!
October 12 is "Pumpkin Pie Day," which is a good reminder to start thinking about your pie orders for Thanksgiving (it's only 44 days away!)
October 18 is “National Chocolate Cupcake Day.” Just a friendly reminder, you can pretend every day is Chocolate Cupcake Day because you can get a chocolate cupcake any time at Happy Bakeshop - we have at least six chocolate cupcakes on our menu each day!
October 29 is our second anniversary in our new shop. Come celebrate with us!
October 31 is Halloween AND “National Caramel Apple” Day – read more about Halloween below!
If you’re out trick or treating, make sure you come to see us in your costume – we LOVE to see everyone all dressed up. Leave your costume mask off, though; we like to see your faces even more! (Your face/mouth mask is welcome, of course!)
