Huckleberry 101

So you all know by now that our September Cupcake of the Month is the Blue Mountain Huckleberry. You should also know by now that it is ridiculously delicious. If you cannot speak firsthand on that second point, it's time to get serious, and click HERE.

Here is a photo of our Blue Mountain Huckleberry cupcake.

Here is a photo of it in babycake form.

Here is a photo of it with a tiny deer to emphasize the woodsiness of these wild berries.

Here is an image of Huckleberry Pie, Strawberry Shortcake's assumed boyfriend, with his dog, Pupcake, possible inter-breed love interest of her cat, Custard. Very progressive.

Here is a drawing of Huckleberry Hound, looking relaxed and happy, like maybe he just ate a delicious Blue Mountain Huckleberry Cupcake. (Note, Huckleberry Hound is just a cartoon. Please do not feed your real dog a cupcake. It may seem like a good idea, but it is not.)

Here is one artist's rendition of Huckleberry Finn, timeless boy-icon of American literature. You've probably read this book. If not, you're in luck, because the libraries open back up tomorrow, and you can go borrow a copy for free. We suggest you read it with a hot cup of Vérité Coffee...and of course, a Blue Mountain Huckleberry Cupcake.

Here is a photo of that cupcake again.


  1. hahahaha "Pupcake, possible inter-breed love interest of her cat, Custard. Very progressive" ha!

    i ate one of these last night and it was DELICIOUS. Sadly for me i was there late and you only had 4 babycakes left (and I had a few friends with me), so i only got 1. But i will be back for more today. YUM!

  2. They are so much more than "ridiculously delicious". I had one. Oh goodness, it was divine.
    It's going to be in my upcoming post.
    And, I tweeted about it!
    It's THAT good.
    Got to come back.

  3. Unfortunately, I did not have my camera with me. Can I use one of these photos in my post? Of course, I am linking to you and the photo credit will be to you.
    Please let me know. Nurit
