Cake Byte: Stanley CupCakes!


Here's some sweet news for lovers of cupcakes and sports:

Detroit’s Cupcake Station and Pittsburgh’s CoCo’s Cupcake Café Compete for the Stanley Cup(cake)!

The Cupcake Station in Birmingham is in their own Stanley Cup(cake) competition with Pittsburgh-based CoCo’s Cupcake Café to see who has the most cupcake loving fans in hockey.

For every Wings or Pens cupcake purchased, a goal is added to the Goals Chalkboard located in each store. At the end of the series, one cupcake bakery will be able to claim the highest scoring, most d edicated, cupcake loving fans in hockey, and will be the rightful winner of The Stanley Cup(cake). Each location will be updating the “opposing” team’s score daily. Plus, the Cupcake Station will be donating a portion of their proceeds to a Red Wings charity!

From now until the end of the Stanley Cup playoffs, the Cupcake Station will be offering special Red Wing cupcakes. Choose from an Octopus cupcake, a “Go Red Wings” cupcake or one in the team colors of Red and White. Why not score a hat trick and try all three?!

CoCo’s custo mers can choose between black and gold cupcakes, ones that spell out “Let’s Go Pens,” or those that show their support for a favorite player.

For more information, check out cupcakestation.com or call 248-593-1903 in Detroit; in Pittsburgh, please visit cocoscupcakecafe.com or 412-361-2625.

Love 'em! I, too, am in the hockey playoff spirit. I featured an octopus recipe today in honor of all the Detroit Red Wing fans out there.

The cupcake station is right down the street from where I work but their cupcakes, sadly, taste meh. And quite pricey.

These Stanley cupcakes were ripped off from the original creators at Just Baked in Livonia MI.

Hello Cupcake Loves, This is the owner of The Cupcake Station, Kerry Johnson. I don't have a lot of time to update myself on Cupcake Blogs but when I get a free moment, like the 4th of July, I take the time to read up on what cupcake lovers have to say! To my disappointment and surprise I can't believe someone would say I stole an idea (Stanley Cupcakes)from someone else. That is utterly ridiculous. I have been in Business for 3 years now and that would be 2 1/2 years longer then JustBaked, I have been doing Stanley Cupcakes since our first year in business; so how could I have stolen that idea? Now, did they "steal" the idea to have a Cupcake Shop from Magnolia Bakery in New York? They were the first, and we all owe them a debt of gratitude for popularizing the Cupcake trend.
I would also like to add, that it wasn't even my idea - I received a call from a cupcake shop in Pittsburgh called Coco's Cupcake Cafe who asked it I wanted to do this.
You should also know that we donated 25% of all of our proceeds to the Red Wings supported Children's Hospital Charity - $2,080.00. Where did the proceeds from JustBaked's Stanley Cupcakes go?

One more thing: when a person writes something in a public domain like this one, and makes accusations that are not backed up by facts, that action could be considered slander against myself and my business. Such irresponsible action may be actionable, and referred to my attorney for review. You can not print something in a public domain without being responsible for the consequences. As in most things in life, it is best to know your facts before you speak.

I thank you for taking the time to read this, and appreciate the opportunity to present my side of the situation. Thanks to everyone who enjoys and writes about Cupcakes - that helps all of us continue to learn and improve our industry.

Thank you!
The Cupcake Station
Kerry Johnson
