Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend!

Finally! Here are the pictures from our shoot with Cyrille Weiner for Standard Magazine. It was quite a shoot with our cakes and cupcakes glitzed out with jewels from Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, Chanel, Bulgari, etc. And yes, there was even a bodyguard present all day at the shop to make sure no one made off with the bling!

Back on the Chain Gang....

We're baa-aaack! After a lovely 3 week vacation in the South of Spain, I'm back at the shop and boy did I hit the ground running. While our official re-opening was the 30th August, I was fast and furious in my kitchen the day before on a baking marathon ... I managed to churn out 175 cupcakes, 4 3-layer 10-inch cakes and 2 6-inch layer cakes for 2 different weddings! It was definitely not what you'd call a "rentrée en douceur" but I was happy to supply some delicious baked goods to the happy couples!

This Fall, we'll be trying out lots of new things in the shop. We love cupcakes and they will continue to be front and center, but we're also looking to offer up a larger selection of more traditional bakery items. If you came by this past weekend, you would have found 2 types of whoopie pies, blondies and a Victoria Sponge made with vanilla marscapone and fresh strawberries in the case. If you're in the neighborhood, come discover what we're baking up, and please let us know if there are any American baked goods you're especially dying to find on this side of the Atlantic! We'll have new surprises in store every weekend....

A special thanks to Meg of De Quelle Planéte Es-Tu? -- one of the Bake Shop's biggest fans, and one of our favorite Parisian bloggers, for this amazing shot of our Raspberry Beret cupcake!
