Designer cupcakes to sweeten Cayman

A new business is bringing trendy
“designer” cupcakes to Cayman.

Cherryl Moore, owner of the Frosted
Robin cupcake cafe, says her new café will be much more than just another
dessert shop.

“The Frosted Robin café will offer
a memorable experience for customers,” Moore said. “I want people to not only
enjoy a spectacular cupcake, but also to talk and laugh with friends and family
in a warm and fun atmosphere.”

The café theme centres on the look
and feel of a family kitchen. Moore says she wants customers to feel at home
the instant they walk through the door. Caymanians Sheree and Guy Harrison own
the Frosted Robin trademark and are opening their Frosted Robin cafe in San
Diego in December. Moore will own and operate the Grand Cayman cafe.

Ms Moore, who is a marketing
executive at a Cayman law firm, says this change of course from the legal
marketing world into cupcakes has all the feel of “coming home”.

“I’ve been friends with Sheree and
Guy for many years, and I share their vision for the Frosted Robin brand,”
Moore said. “Sheree and I both grew up in the kitchen with our moms and
siblings and we wanted to be able to share our love for sweet treats through
our cafes while offering an experience worth coming back time and time again.
This is not just a business. It’s a passion, and I hope my customers feel
that.”

Frosted Robin Cupcakes owns over 40
unique cupcake flavours, and the company has also created its own signature,
flower petal frosting design.

Until the cafe opens, customers can
get a preview of the cupcake flavours through the company’s catering service.

“We can’t wait for the world to see
our cupcakes. We see them as works of edible art,” said Ms Moore.

All Frosted Robin gourmet cupcakes
are made from premium ingredients, Ms Moore says, and many of the flavours were
inspired by the Cayman Islands and other cultures around the world. One of the
cupcake flavours was created by adapting Sheree’s mother’s recipe for cornmeal
custard.

Frosted Robin cupcake cafe will
also offer special themed cupcakes “perfect for parties of all kinds,” said Ms
Moore. “For example, imagine monster cupcakes for Halloween and baseball
cupcakes for a Little League team.”

Both Frosted Robin cupcake cafes in
the Cayman Islands and San Diego will give back to their communities, Ms Moore
said. Donations of leftover but still-fresh cupcakes will be delivered to
non-profit organisations, foster homes and paediatric wards at local hospitals.
Additionally, Frosted Robin cafes will donate a percentage of proceeds from
designated charitable cupcakes to benefit environmental care organisations and
community service groups.

Customers will also have the
opportunity to take advantage of store discounts, free giveaways and stay on
top of store events through regular emails when the Frosted Robin website is
launched in early January.

Cupcakes may be ordered online via
email now, and catering service is available for corporate functions, weddings,
birthday parties, baby showers and other special occasions. Specialty cupcake
gift boxes will be available for celebrations and holidays.
