October Happenings and a New Venue

Greetings and salutations!

After a brief hiatus, Comfy Confections is gearing up for the holidays at our new venue, the Ybor City Saturday Market. Your favorite mini apple pies will be available this weekend as well as our new Pumpkin Crunch Mini Pie blending autumn spices with velvety pumpkin flavor and the crunch of toasted pecans.

Not the exact pie but you get the idea

Also returning is an experimental dish that made a big hit at the Art and Soul Food Festival last month. Our decadent Chocolate Espresso cake, described by one customer as “flavor that just punches you in the face” will be available this weekend in mini bundt form.

Have some cake!

We’re also starting the celebration of one of our favorite holidays with an assortment of Spookies. Starting from $3, you can take home a box of delicious homemade sugar cookies shaped as coffins, headstones, witches, cauldrons, brooms, spiders and webs, cats, bats, moons, candy corn, haunted houses and ghosts. For those who aren’t feeling the spirit of Halloween we also have a nice assortment of Harvest cookies featuring Oak and Maple leaves, apples and pumpkins for $5.

Also not the exact cookies but you get the idea

Finally, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a cause near and dear to Comfy Confections, we are offering the Neapolitan Booby cupcake. A rich chocolate and vanilla cupcake with a bold raspberry jalapeño icing (or strawberry icing for those who prefer a more subtle fruit flavor) presented in a pretty pink paisley cup can be yours for $3. All proceeds for the Neapolitan Booby cupcake will go to the Moffitt Cancer Center.

Do I need to say it again? 😉

So join us at the Ybor City Saturday Market this Saturday from 9-3 and Sunday at Stained Marketplace for the Art & Soul Food Festival from 11-4pm.

Market appearance

This week Comfy Confections makes its debut at the Outdoor Market of Stained Marketplace in Ybor City. We’ll be selling slices of fresh baked apple pie made completely from scratch and mini apple pies that fit in the palm of your hand. We’ll have our special homemade Jaffa cake slices and mini cakes infused with a creamy orange liqueur and coated with a luscious chocolate ganache and some delicious Millionaire’s Shortbread derived from the people of Australia.

Don’t forget to try our awesome line of cookie cups! This week we have the Frappuccino Cookie Cup, a mocha cookie cup filled with delicious caramel made entirely from scratch; our Chocolate Lovers Cookie Cup, a chocolate chocolate chip cookie cup filled with fresh chocolate ganache and our Euro cup featuring a sweet sugar cookie filled with Italian hazelnut spread and topped with bits of English toffee. We’re also introducing a taste of Fall with our Autumn Cookie Cup, a gingersnap cookie cup filled with pumpkin spice flavored marshmallow whip and dusted with nutmeg.

Finally, for those of you watching your figure we have a range of fat free and low fat items. This week we’ll be selling 90 calorie Apple Oatmeal muffins and mini cakes and 100 calorie Banana Crunch mini loaves.

So join us Thursday August 22 through Sunday August 25 from 8am to noon at Stained Marketplace 2106 East 15th Avenue, Tampa. We take cash and credit cards and advance orders are always welcome.

FALL TASTING EVENT CANCELLED

Good morrow to all!

Unfortunately, restrictions at the location this event was planned has caused us to cancel the tasting for the time being. However, if you’ll check the schedule tab you’ll see Comfy Confections can now be found as a vendor at the Outdoor Market held at Stained Marketplace in Ybor City. Cash and credit/debit cards are accepted and any orders placed with us can be picked up at our booth. You can also try some free samples if you can’t make up your mind what to buy although I warn you, the tasting of samples won’t make your decision any easier and may prompt you to buy more;)

We’re in negotiations to set up in other locations and events in the Tampa Bay area so watch this space for updates!
