Cakey Menu …. January 15, 2010

Filed under: 1 — nenetakesthecake @ 5:29 pm

I’ve been asked  a few times now about what I offer and what prices so I am going to just post it for everyone’s reference.

I offer mainly White and Chocolate cake. BUT I am not opposed to other cakes.(Gluten free cakes as well)

My icing arsenal includes, my classic frosting (I heard its tasty), butter cream, chocolate fudge buttercream, cream cheese. I’ve recently added liquor icings, Margarita, Baileys, Pina Colada, and Strawberry Daquiri.

Fillings: Any kinda of mousse, cream cheese, white chocolate ganache, dark chocolate ganache, milk chocolate ganache, banana, peanut butter, and more. You want it inside your cake or cupcakes, I will make it happen.

Lastly, how much does it cost to get a piece of Nene Cakey Heaven?  Cupcakes with icing $2/ cupcake. Cupcake with filling/fondant $2.50/cupcake. Cupcake w/ Fondant creations and filling $3/ per cupcake.

Giant Cupcakes (Biggin’) w/ Icing: $3

Cake prices vary.

Let’s be smart about this folks, everyone loves cupcakes. Sure you can by store boughten, from the local grocer, HONESTLY they are going to be cheaper, and taste cheaper.

New Years Eve…Benefit and Cakey Event! November 9, 2009

Filed under: 1 — nenetakesthecake @ 7:07 pm

So I am working with my brother who is in a Local Band ( to put together a benefit for my Niece Taylor (5yrs) who was born with the worst case of spina bifida in Kansas City Area. This is also to benefit the Spina Bifida Foundation.

This event will be held at the Mission Theater (Johnson Dr). Right now what I know is that VIP tickets (only 100) will be sold at the price of $35. This will be all-inclusive wine, beer, food, and a champagne toast at midnight. The regular admission will be $10 and will only cover the entertainment. Last year we had a turn out of 400 plus people and it was amazing. There is a DJ for the evening ( and it is one heck of a party! More details will be posted later, but I am really hoping that you will be attending. One stop, drink…food…doing your part to help children with Spina Bifida!

So partly my contribution to this night will be CUPCAKES! (of course). I am currently working on some STELLAR recipes for this event. These will all be alcohol flavored cupcakes…without the alcohol of course. Some of the flavors including Strawberry daiquiri, Pina Colada, Chocolate Irish Bailey’s, and Margarita….(to name a few) This is going to be fun!

Peace, Love, and Alcohol flavored cupcakes…..:)
