It seems like only yesterday I randomly stumbled upon Bake You Happy. It was a great find, unexpected, local, cupcake perfection. For the longest time, Bake You Happy lacked a storefront and they were available in limited qualities at Its A Grind if you got there early enough. Of course my friends and I often placed orders, but it wasn’t like we could just have one anytime we wanted.
Back in July, some of us were getting the Bake You Happy craving so we got together and had a second tasting, which of course, was perfection. Still…these cupcakes are so epic that it was a bit frustrating to think that we couldn’t just go somewhere whenever we got the craving and buy one.
Which brings me to last week…my brother Hsiawen said he saw an ad for Bake You Happy in a local magazine and informed me that they had a new kitchen. Whut!?!? I called Kim and asked where they were located and if we could stop by and buy single cupcakes. It turns out they have been at their new kitchen for only a few weeks and she invited us to stop by and check it out. It isn’t a storefront, but you could certainly call ahead and see what they have available that day. Or simply call her for pick up. No, really. Do it. You wont regret it.
So last night my friends and I gathered at their new kitchen space, located on Industry Drive in Castaic/Valencia. You can ask Zigler to clarify which city it is in. All I know is that it is very close to home. Success. Here are some just out of the oven!
They share the kitchen with Victoria Duvall of Cookie Couture (she was on the O List) and it is very clean and crisp! Soon almost 20 of us had gathered to visit with Kim, check out the new space, and eat cupcakes. Kim had a great variety of cupcakes available, but I went straight for the Peanut Butter. It was amazing. Moist chocolate filled with peanut butter. My new favorite Bake You Happy offering for sure.
Well…maybe it is actually tied with the Smore Cupcake…guess what? It has a graham cracker crust. A cupcake with a graham cracker crust! It is AMAZING x 100. Seriously. I didn’t know a smore cupcake could be this good. Nothing frilly, just a dainty cupcake consisting of quality ingredients and moist chocolate.
