New cupcake flavors just dropped off at lavender lounge, chocolate orange and piña colada
This year we had 2 booths at Coachella, one in the VIP area and one in the main area. Last year we were only in the VIP area. It was a ton of work running around to both booths, but we got a great response being in the main area too this year. I think we met even more celebrities this year than last year, but for some reason we have less pics, i think it was all the running around. Heres some of the celebrities we saw this year, Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters, Rosanna Arquette, Talvin Singh, Jason Statham, Jonathan Silverman, John Mayer, Shawn White, Chelsea Clinton, Dita Von Teese and others. Here are some pics we did get.
Hip Hop Mogul, founder of Def Jam Records, Phat Farm clothing, and Vegan, Russell Simmons stopped by and grabbed some cupcakes to take back on their plane. I grew up listening to Def Jam, it was really cool to meet him.
Michelle Rodriguez from Avatar, Lost, and Fast and the Furious stopped by and picked up some cupcakes.
Kelly Osbourne was super nice and stopped by twice to pick up some cupcakes with her boyfriend.
Jonsi from Sigur Ros was playing Coachella with his solo band this year.
Supermodel and actress from the Fast and the Furious Aoki Devon stopped by several times. sorry for the blurry photo.
Mae Whitman from Parenthood (tv show) and Independance Day picking up a coconut.
Dj Lance Rock from Yo Gaba Gaba stopped by several times, but he didnt bring any of the robots or monsters to our booth with him. They did rock the house in the Sahara tent with all the creatures.
Here’s our booth in the VIP area. I tried to twitter pics of both booths from the show to make it easier to find, but our cellphone reception sucked. We had six flavors this year and our new flavor for Coachella Peanut Butter Chocolate was the first to sell out.
Last month we took part in Debbie Durkins Eco-Oscars Green Carpet Lounge. It took place at a private estate in Beverly Hills. There were a ton of great vendors and we met a bunch of great people. We were told our cupcakes were the talk of the party and got a great response from everyone. Here are some pics of people we met at the event.
Kevin was a really nice guy, even when some of the kids from Twilight started chanting “Hercules” in the background.
Michael was a really cool guy, and he is vegan, so he was very excited that we were there with our cupcakes.
Two people from Glee were there, Patrick Gallager and Josh Sussman (who’s afro is even more impressive in person)
Mayim Bialik from Blossom showed up and it turns out she is vegan too
We had a great time meeting everybody and munching on cupcakes.
