We Want to Put a Cuppie in Your Mouth This Saturday

What do you get when you cross a cupcake and a cookie? Ask Melissa Zimmerman and she’ll tell you the answer is a cuppie. Melissa is the sole proprietor of It’s A Cuppie and decided in July 2010 to see what would happen if she inserted cookie dough into batter and baked it. Would the dough become a cookie inside of the cake? Would it remain as cookie dough?

Instead of giving you the answer, we’re giving you a chance to find out in person. It’s A Cuppie will be at the Hester Street Fair this Saturday (August 18) from 10am to 6pm and if you’re one of the first 100 people to visit the booth, your Cuppie is on us. We’ll repeat that in all caps so it’s clear: FREE CUPPIES FOR THE FIRST 100 PEOPLE COURTESY OF BOOGIE. Make sure to head over, say hi to Melissa and tell her that we sent you. Most importantly, enjoy your cuppie!

Disclaimer: don’t blame us if you sugar up your kids and they get crazy.

The booth at the street fair is a promotional opportunity for It’s A Cuppie to showcase the product that normally sells in larger orders of 6+. Which brings us to a second offer in a single post. It’s A Cuppie is offering 15% off orders of 18 or more if you mention Bowery Boogie when you place your order.
