WALLINGFORD, Conn., Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The weather outside may be cold, but cupcakes are hot at Edible Arrangements®.
In less than a year since debuting late last summer, the Cupcake Collection has quickly become one of the most popular options among customers.
Featuring handcrafted fresh fruit arrangements and cupcake-shaped pineapple, dipped in gourmet white and semisweet chocolate and topped with festive sprinkles, the "cakes" are available in custom cupcake or birthday cake-shaped containers. Many guests make the arrangements even sweeter by adding chocolate dipped bananas or Granny Smith apple wedges to the arrangements.
"We knew the Cupcake Collection would be popular, but it has surpassed our expectations," said Edible Arrangements® CEO Tariq Farid. "The Cupcake Collection is perfect for those occasions that happen 365 days a year, from thanking a teacher to celebrating a promotion at work to wishing a loved one happy birthday. It's a delightful and unexpected way to 'WOW' that special person."
