Goodbye!

Brooklyn Bridge


Tomorrow, I fly to NYC for three months, which of course means that I won't be selling vegan baked goods for quite a while. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has bought from me so far!

I'll be back around mid-November, and hopefully with lots of new ideas!

LAST CHANCE FOR TVINKIES!

As I've only just got back from Edinburgh, I'm extending the Tvinkies deadline to 10pm tonight just in case anyone wanted to ask me any questions before placing an order :) Thank you to everyone who's already ordered!

A little reminder about the Tvinkies pre-order, now with photos!

Photobucket


Whether you're vegan or not, real Twinkies are almost impossible to come by in the UK, and as an "all-American" treat, I think they're a good way to sign off for the next three months. They are priced at £6.50 for 4, or £10.50 for 8, which includes postage, packaging and Paypal fees, and to give an idea of size, they require a little more cake mix than my standard size (ie: larger, American-style) cupcakes. Unfortunately I don't have a photo to show the insides as these got eaten up too quickly, but they are filled with a light and fluffy vanilla frosting, just like "real" Twinkies!

Tvinkies are available to order by sending your Paypal payment with the form below pasted in the "message" section to emmaclarke321@ hotmail.com :

Order: (4 or 8 Tvinkies)

The deadline for orders is 9pm, Wednesday 5th August, and they will be sent First Class on Friday 7th August, to arrive on Saturday 8th August. As most of you know, I'm heading to Brooklyn for 3 months on August 13th, so this is your last chance to order from riseabovebakery before I get back in mid-November!

Something a bit special...

After having spent hours in the kitchen trying to perfect these, it's time for the big reveal:

VEGAN TWINKIES!

Cookies!

riseabovebakery
As it's coming up for the 4th July, aka American Independence Day, I figure the next batch of vegan baked goods should be American-themed (which also coincides nicely with my need for funds for my NYC trip in 42 days and 5 hours!!). To me, American (vegan) food generally equates to a hefty dose of delicious peanut butter. Originally, I had wanted to create Peanut Butter & Jelly cupcakes, but unfortunately I'm yet to think of a way to transport all of the components without the cupcake turning soggy. Not to worry though, because I have an old faithful as a back up plan: an adaptation of Isa Chandra Moskowitz's Peanut Butter Pillows!

I am absolutely addicted to these things, so I think it's about time that I sold them on here. Owing to costs, this time around, I will only be selling the cookies in batches of 6 or 12 (or more in multiples of six if you like - please contact me if you're interested in more). They are fairly heavy to post, and so will be priced at £8.50 for 6 cookies, or £14.50 for 12 cookies, and as before, they will be sent by First Class post. These do keep well, so feel free to stock up! ;) When ordering, please send the funds via Personal Payment to emmaclarke321@hotmail.com and paste the form below into the message section:

The deadline for this batch is 10am on Thursday 2nd July, and they will be sent out on the Friday so that they (hopefully!) reach you on Saturday 4th July. Enjoy! :)

Recent order - feedback page

riseabovebakery
Everyone who ordered over the past couple of days should hopefully receive their cupcakes today, so here is another page to be used for feedback. So, same as last time, I'd really appreciate your opinions input as to what you thought of your goodies. Tell me anything; post photos of you posing with them, tell me what you thought of the packaging and presentation, what state did they turn up in, had the cake gone soggy from being filled with frosting, any issues or suggestions for changes, would you consider buying them again, and most of all, how do they taste? How did they compare to other vegan cakes you may have had, or to your preconceptions about what vegan food tastes like? Do you think they're priced reasonably? I'm open to suggestions, please be honest! :)

My brother and I had one each for our breakfasts this morning (though his was delivered to him with a cup of tea, because I'm a good sister like that!), so below are our photos:

Matt had a chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting, decorated with chocolate:

Whereas I had one of chocolate cupcakes filed with peanut butter frosting and topped with chocolate:

Yum!

Final reminder.

Good morning!

Photobucket


Before I head out to see my Dad today, I thought I'd post a final little reminder that the deadline for orders is 2pm today. I will not be home until later on this afternoon, so I will be unable to answer any questions after 11am. If you wish to make an order, please copy and paste this form into a personal Paypal payment:

Full name:
LJ Username:
Address:
Price: (eg: £8 - see pricing in this post)
Order: (eg: 1d. Chocolate cupcake, peanut butter frosting filling, topped with semi-sweet plain chocolate,)
Quantity: (eg: 6)

For details of flavour combinations, please go to the previous post. Please do not comment this post for orders. Orders should be made through a comment on the order page and paid for immediately.

If your order is not paid for by 2pm today, I'm afraid will not be able to complete it.

Thank you!

A reminder.

Good evening!

Just a little reminder that the deadline for orders is 2pm tomorrow (Sunday), so if you'd like to buy some vegan cupcakes, please make sure you do so asap! More details are on
the previous post. Please do not comment this post for orders, but follow the link to the order page instead.

Vegan cupcakes for sale!

Good afternoon!

Some of you may have read from my posts on TSUK that as of August 13th, I'm heading back to NYC for three months. I'm unemployed and utterly skint, so I've decided that until I find a temporary job, baking will have to get me by!

I am selling the following vegan cupcakes in multiples of two:

Photobucket


Chocolate cupcake, thick chocolate fudgey frosting (pictured above),
Vanilla cupcake, thick chocolate fudgey frosting (same frosting, different base)

Pricing:
2 cupcakes = £4 via personal payment, includes first class postage and packaging.




I will also be taking personalised orders for batches of 6 or 12 cupcakes. A "batch" means all of the cupcakes in your order must be the same; I'm sorry but I'm only doing this on a very small scale out of my kitchen, and it would cost me too much to do "variety boxes"! However, if for example, you wish to swap half of your batch with half of someone else's, and you organise this yourselves in the comments below, I will be happy to mix and match your batches so long as it is a direct swap and the order is made and paid for at the same time.

Here are the flavour options...Collapse )

Pricing:
Batch of 6 = £8.00 via personal payment.
Batch of 12 = £14 via personal payment.
Price includes first class postage.

Orders must be placed and paid for by 2pm on Sunday. This is to allow me time to buy the necessary ingredients, bake them, and get them posted bright and early on Monday morning.


Enjoy! :)

WINNER!

Ok ladies, following from yesterday's post about mystery cupcakes, a winner was chosen at random. And that person is:

amyxox

Two cupcakes are on their way to you as of today, congratulations :)

Soon I will be making a real sales post. I have a couple of ideas, but what would your preferred flavour combinations be?
