Best week ever!

Oh my, last week was super busy and amazing! Ashley and I really pulled ourselves together and created new recipes, tabled at 21 Grand, and sold our spectacular rainbow cupcakes at Dyke March…pretty impressive, right?

First thing first, we owe a BIG thank you to all the lovely people at 21 Grand and Club Sandwich for their support and for inviting us to the show!

If you were at the show, then I don’t need to tell you how great the music, the people, and Fat Bottom baked goods were. Ashley and I were stoked to be at the show because it gave us a chance to make the first public debut of some new recipes AND we got to enjoy the music of Stripmall Seizures, KIT, Father Murphy, and Baaddd. All the bands were really outstanding and a real pleasure to be around.

Maybe you’re wondering what recipes we debuted?

We had our coconut cupcake with toasted coconut frosting…

our chocolate raspberry cupcake- a BRAND new recipe!-

here they are together!

If you weren’t at the show shame on you! You totally missed out. But it’s okay you can make it up by coming to our next event.


So as I said we also went to Dyke March. Ashley and I worked all day in kitchen making the most cupcakes ever attempted by Fat Bottom Bakery; we made what felt like a million of our tiny psychedelic rainbow cupcakes. Our prep time went off without a hitch and was really fun thanks to the help of our lovely friends Tucker, Kathleen, and Jose (You three are the best!).

Seriously, look how helpful Tucker is!

After the baking Ashley and I got all prettied up in dresses, did our hair, and even wore makeup! We headed out to Dolores Park.  It was incredibly hot and simply packed with lovely queers and allies. Ashley and I braved the heat and had a great time slinging cupcakes, talking to old friends, and meeting new people.

Here they are! If these cupcakes don’t say pride, then what does?

and here we are! 


Thanks to a lovely lady, Steph, for these pictures. Check out her website http://www.schmootography.com


And thanks to Jose for this photo!

Oh, we also made special buttons for the big day!

The day was a pleasure all around and just as it began to cool down and everyone got ready for the march we sold our last cupcake. Ashley and I were free to join in the festivities of the march without the burden of our cupcake tray!

Our week speed by super fast and now we are enjoying a more relaxed week. But not to worry we are busily making new recipes and will be keeping an eye out for new events.

I love lemons!

I love summer food. Ashley and I have been perfecting recipes for all kinds of summer treats, like our strawberry cupcakes and brand new chocolate-mint cupcakes

So even though it was a gloomy, grey, entirely un-summery day, in my heart I knew I wanted to make something that would be totally refreshing on a hot sunny day- I needed to make batch of lemon poppy seed cookies and a pitcher of ginger lemonade!

So I bundled up, walked to the market, and bought the most lemons ever.


Seriously, lemons are the greatest!


The cookies are crisp, chewy, tart.


So basically they are the best. 

Keep checking back Ashley and I have been making have a bunch of new recipes and are always looking out for places to table. 

New cupcakes!

It was a lovely summery weekend. The skies were clear, the sun was shining, birds were chirping…etcetera. What did Ashley and I decide to do? Go on a hike or take a swim? Nope. We spent all weekend working over a hot oven perfecting cupcake recipes in our million-degree kitchen. It was great and totally worth it. This was one of those baking experiments that turns our perfect on the first try, which as you may know is not always the case.

                              Introducing coconut cupcakes two ways!

We invented a seriously intense coconut cupcake, a moist coco-nutty cupcake with coconut cream frosting and chocolate ganache topping. This is a real dessert cupcake, it’s super rich and totally satisfying.

And we also created a strawberry coconut cupcake. This is an airy coconut cupcake with a fresh strawberry butter cream. It’s light, delicious, and perfect snack on a summer evening.

As always, keep checking back for more new creations– and while you’re at it, come find us when we’re out and about and try some of them for yourself!
We’re sure you’ve already marked this on your calendar, but in case you forgot, our next official public appearance (with a variety of treats, of course!) is Friday, May 29th at 924 Gilman.
