Sometimes you just know when you know. I’m talking about an instance where you experience something and it just feels right. For example, meeting a spouse or significant other for the first time, selecting a college, interviewing for a job or…umm… tasting a cupcake? I didn’t know that eating a cupcake could be a life changing experience until recently. That’s because the newly launched Naperville based Foiled Inc. has the most moist, most fresh and best tasting cupcakes that I’ve tasted. Hands down!
There has been a trend of specialty cupcake shops that have recently opened, but none of them can compare to Foiled Cupcakes. Owner Mari Luangrath started her company Foiled Inc. to help people enjoy memorable experiences through her cupcakes. She called a childhood friend that is an Executive Pastry Chef about her idea and voila they were in business. Unlike other bakeries, Foiled doesn’t use a storefront, but differentiates itself as being Chicagoland’s first and only exclusive on-line designer cupcake delivery service. The cupcakes are handmade using only the finest all-natural ingredients, such as traditional foil cupcake wrappers, real butter cream frosting, handmade fillings, and European Garnishes. They offer twenty standard flavors every day, as well as additional monthly flavor offerings that are available for a limited time. A few of the unique standard cupcakes offered are:
Ooey Gooey – Chocolate cake, caramel filling, caramel buttercream, ganache topping, and a pinch of sea salt.
Pinkalicious So Delicious – Chocolate cake, raspeberry jam filling, raspberry buttercream, and a dainty raspberry garnish.
The Cinnful Apple – Vanilla cake, baked apple filling, cinnamon buttercream, and sweet cinnamon sugar sprinkles.
Foiled also sets themselves apart from the competition by adding a little humor with each cupcake. Their signature “Quippies” are little tag lines of humor inserted into the cupcakes themselves for an extra special surprise.. They also offer customized “Quippies” for special occasions. Cupcakes retail for $38 per dozen and delivery is included. They can whip up designer cupcakes by the dozen with as little as 12 hours notice. Foiled delivers in Chicago and the West Suburbs and pride themselves on customer service. Orders can be made on-line, by phone or fax. For more information log onto www.foiledcupcakes.com.
