Holiday Orders

Hello All!
Sorry for the little break from blogging. I was just relishing the last burst of warm weather the Pioneer Valley has been experiencing the past few days. 75 degrees! I just couldn't resist. Fall is just my favorite. Not to mention my computer has finally bitten the dust, and I am relying on borrowing computers to update the blog... But that is a story for another time.

I wanted to fill you all in on an exciting tidbit! For both Thanksgiving and the winter holidays, I will be traveling up to Maine. So if anyone in Boston or Southern Maine (or anyone on the way to either) would like to order cupcakes, I would be happy to deliver.

The first round of cupcake delivery will be the 20th and 21st of November. All Boston-ites will have to be OK with getting their orders on the 20th, as I would be stopping in before heading onward to Maine.

The second round will be the 23rd and 24th of December, with Boston drop-off being the 23rd.

Anyone interested should email me (ar_barton@yahoo.com) or leave me a comment on this blog with their information at least 2 weeks prior to the drop-off date. I will be in touch regarding further details. Payment can be made by cash or check the day of delivery (made out to Ashley Barton).
  • 1 dozen regular size cupcakes: $30 (either one flavor or 6 each of a flavor); 1/2 dozen is $18 (only 1 flavor)
  • 2 dozen mini-cupcakes: $24 (please order at least 2 dozen minis); 1 flavor or a dozen each of a flavor
