Cupcakes + Shakes = Cupcakes

Bread and Butter
Peanut Butter and Jelly
Spaghetti and Meatballs

Cake and Ice Cream….wait…..Cupcake and Ice Cream!

There are few things that go together so well.

Today on Facebook I happened to notice Megan, The Sweet Tooth Fairy mention a new little venture she was about to make in the cupcake world. It was the CupShake! I was intregued. I had to know more. AND most importantly I HAD TO TRY A CupShake!

I quickly found out The Sweet Tooth Fariy would be teaming up with local fave, Sammy’s Cafe. Now, Sammy’s Cafe as you should know is well-known for their PieShakes. (Read more here) That’s right you read that those two words in the same sentence. A full-freakin-slice-oh-pie in a shake. Apparently Megan and Sam (Owner of Sammy’s Cafe) have a mutual friend and before you know it, they are collaborating on a gem of an idea – the CupShake.

Seriously who wouldn’t like a whole cupcake blended into a delicious soft serve ice cream shake? it’s the best of both worlds.

Literally hours later after having found out this discovery, I was down at Sammy’s Cafe to try my first CupShake. I’m a lucky girl!

The result? I was uber impressed. (Smile.)

I think it is a delicious and fun way to eat a cupcake in the summer…and um…really anytime.

Before I get into how they make a CupShake. I must say that this was my first time going to Sammy’s. I hate to admit that I had not been there. It’s sort of embarrassing that I have not since I scope out all the new local places. But for some reason every time I tried to go just didn’t work out. And every time I heard reports from friends and family going I was so jealous. Anyway, just had to get that off my chest. I actually tried a burger and fries while I was there and I liked it. Even more so I just loved the atmosphere.

Sam the owner was a cool guy and gave off a good vibe. (…it makes me want to support this place even more)

Okay so. So let’s get into how a CupShake is born.

It’s simple math really:

Cupcake + Shake = CupShake

We begin by filling our cup with some of Sammy’s smooth soft serve vanilla ice cream.

Then we add a delicious cupcake from the one and only Sweet Tooth Fairy. (pix yanked from Sweet Tooth Fairy’s blog..thx ;) )

Looks like some workers are gazing at the cupcakes, I don’t blame them. If this would have been me, I would have ran off with one before they could have ever gotten it into the shake. I bet they couldn’t decide which flavor to make next. So many choices…and they were all so good!

Okay, let’s plop that cupcake right in!

I was able to try all the flavors they made today. These flavors included:

* Double Fudge
* Strawberry Shortcake
* Coconut
* Key Lime Pie
* Carrot Cake
* Raspberry Lemonade
* Chocolate Mint (Grasshopper)
* Lemon
* Peanut Butter Chocolate

I think that covers it. My favorites were definitely the Peanut Butter, Carrot Cake and Strawberry Shortcake.

Dudes & CupShakes

Everyone in the shop at this time was able to sample these and it was fun to see their reactions. They were definitely positive. I just loved hearing Megan and Sam get excited about their favorites. Megan would just get this look on her face, knowing the flavor worked and Sam would proclaim, “Now that’s legit!”  It was dang cool to see these business owners collaborate. I’m telling you friends, I think this CupShake thing is a gem!

So you want to try one? Well if you are local you can! (and if your not local, heck, blend one up yourself and let me know!)

Head on over to Sammy’s tomorrow night! They’ll have live music and samples of CupShakes!
CupShakes will be a regular on the menu, prices and flavors will be announced soon!

These two are brilliant! I seriously think the CupShake will be the next huge trend in cupcakes…cause really…who doesn’t like cake and ice cream? eh?

  1. Mmmm… I was slobbering while reading this post! Now I know what I’ll be doing this weekend – only, I’m having a hard time not being able to eat the Sweet Tooth Fairy cupcake on its own… I LOVE those cupcakes!! :) Thanks for the review!

  2. Those sound delicious! I know their pie shakes are to die for- I can’t even imagine how good a cupcake shake would taste. Guess I’ll have to get down to sammys!
