Local Bloggers Take Over Not Just Icing Cupcake Truck at Big Boss Brewery August 5th!

Not Just Icing Cupcakes

Watch out Raleigh! This Tuesday, August 5th I’ll be working alongside local food truck blogger Art aka The Wandering Sheppard on the Not Just Icing cupcake food truck at Big Boss Brewing Company (249 Wicker Drive, Raleigh). The truck will be at the brewery from 5-8pm and we will be baking/selling several different flavors of cupcakes. That’s right, the cupcakes are made right on the truck! This will not only be a lot of fun since it will be my first time working on a food truck, but it will also help raise money for a great local cause. Not Just Icing will donate one dollar for every four pack of cupcakes sold and all tips Art & I earn that night will be donated to Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. So come on out and put us to work! Buy a cupcake or two and stick around for the Big Boss Run Club – the club meets at 7pm and runners of all levels are welcome.

Taylor's Wine Shop

Taylor’s Wine Shop

Taylor’s Wine Shop is a hidden gem in North Raleigh. Don’t let its unassuming exterior fool you. This is a top notch wine shop with a nice selection of wines & craft beers offered by knowledgeable and friendly staff. Join them this Saturday, June 21st 1-4pm for one of Taylor’s famous Parking Lot Parties. The event will feature live music by Velvet Goldfish, Free beer and wine tastings, and two awesome local food trucks: Sol Tacos selling gourmet southern tacos & Not Just Icing offering delicious cupcakes. You can learn a little more about both of these great food trucks below.

Sol Tacos

Sol Tacos

Sol Tacos serves tacos in soft  hand made soft tortillas. Owner Andy Schaumann has worked in a kitchen his whole life and prides himself on using locally sourced southern organic ingredients whenever possible that compliment Mexican street food including herbs fresh from his own garden.

Sol Tacos Fish Taco

Buttermilk Fried Flounder Taco

I am a big fan of Sol Taco’s buttermilk fried flounder taco with cilantro sour cream, lettuce, and citrus radish salad. Other great menu offerings include the blackened chicken nacho taco, cheddar chuck burger and beer braised pulled pork tacos. I also here he may have a special side item this weekend. A stuffed avacado BLT with thick cut bacon, compari tomatoes, and maldon sea salt. You can read more about Sol Tacos in this great post about the truck by local food truck guru Art over at The Wandering Sheppard.

Not Just Icing  is the Triangle’s first mobile cupcakery making their cupcakes right there on the truck. They are committed to providing made from scratch, baked fresh daily on the truck scrumptious treats throughout the Triangle area. I’ve had their cupcakes a several times now and they are fantastic!

Strawberry Delight

Not Just Icing’s cupcakes are made using all-natural ingredients with real butter instead of oils and real fruit instead of fruit flavored extracts. Their cupcakes are free of preservatives so they are best eaten the day you buy them. My current favorite cupcake is their “Strawberry Delight”, a vanilla cake with strawberry buttercream icing topped with a fresh strawberry slice.

Hope to see you at the party – make sure you bring a lawn chair and stay a while to enjoy the music!
