About

What exactly is the first ever mobile cupcake bar?

We here at JJ’s Rockin Cupcakes love individuality and celebrate that within everyone…so we had a thought. Why not let YOU be the cupcake creator. Here at JJ’s Rockin Cupcakes we want to incorporate your individuality into our mobile cupcake business!

Our mission is for you to contemplate your own cupcake creations and make them into a reality. The dream of JJ’s Rockin Cupcake mobile is that you will be able to come up to our truck, smell our heavenly fresh baked cupcakes, and choose which flavor, frostin’ and toppins’ you want! Our cupcake bar will allow you to feel like a little kid in a candy store all over again while you watch in awe as we create your very own delicious cupcake masterpiece right before your very eyes! This will not simply be another cupcake truck, but instead be the first EVER mobile cupcake bar!

When you step up to JJ’s funtastic cupcake mobile you will be able to let your imagination run wild!  We are always wowed by the deliciousness of our  customer’s wacky combination choices like cookies and cream with Brooklyn style cannoli cream or even red velvet with peanut butter mousse frostin. With you as the creator the possibilities are endless! Think…your own creation could even become one of JJ’s signature flavors!

If you can’t decide on your own original creation there will always be a daily selection of our classic or mini sized cupcakes aboard. Flavors that will make your mouth water range from chocolate peanut butter explosion, sweet and salty suprise, and our amazing carrot cake. Don’t want to decide on just one? We specialize in “the mini” so that you can mix and match all kinds of flavor combos without feeling like you just had a cupcake overload.

We here at JJ’s never compromise and in order to ensure the best quality we never use preservatives and source locally whenever possible. We also bake our lip-smacking cupcakes from scratch in small individual batches in order to present them to you with the most care possible. You will be sure to be licking the frostin' off your fingers in order to get one last taste of the variety of flavors that will make your taste buds dance. A few of the awesome ingredients we use to make our cupcakes are Belgium chocolate, homemade whipped cream, and fresh lemon zest, making it so that your mouth will be hankering to try every flavor combination. What's our favorite ingredient?...Lots of love!

How did JJ's Rockin Cupcakes come to life?

It is the miracle child of a Brooklyn boy who simply loved eating and baking cake, but never thought of it as a profession. Until his Brooklyn girl, aka wedding planner wife Karin, convinced him that it was worth it to trade in his work boots for aprons, clouds of dust for sugar and flour, and a hammer for a wisk. However, what JJ’s is today did not come easy. There were countless hours of me force feeding my friends and family until I heard the words that helped create the name..." THOSE CUPCAKES ARE ROCKIN!" And that's how JJ's Rockin Cupcakes came to life!

Why we need kickstarter and more importantly YOU!

We have the beginning funds for our dream cupcake truck...however your contributions are the last and most important step in order to get our vision road trip ready. We will need money to purchase a used over sized bread or food truck (16-18 ft). Picture a Mr. Softee ice cream truck but instead of creating your own cone or sundae you will be able to design your own cupcake creation! Being a master carpenter will allow me to do the majority of the work, however, even with my own skills; we researched that we will still need between $17,000 to $30,000 in order to start our engine and make history.

What’s in it for you?

This is an original idea and your financial support would include you in cupcake history! As well as give you some nice benefits (see sweet offerings on the sidebar).

Now, if you have been wondering what people have thought of our creations thus far, read on my friend!

"Your cupcakes are delicious...thank you so much:) My kids loved them!"--Drita D'Avanzo-Mob Wives

"I snuck them into a jazz club and passed them around under the table. The friends faces after eating them was like something out of when Harry met Sally" --Terry Carter (Owner of Travertine Spa)-

"You’ll enjoy the heck outta big ol’ muscley JJ’s creations (though we know he’s a teddy bear)." --Sugar Loco

"What is a rockin cupcake?!  It is a taste sensation beyond description, customized to your taste buds' most extravagant desires!" --The Jefferson Eagle

"My celebrity friends are still raving about how yummy the cupcakes were! I will definitely use JJ's Rockin Cupcakes for all future events and tell my friends!" -- Robin Kassnir of Millionaire Matchmaker B-day Bash

 We recently found out that we were nominated 'Best Party Favor' of the Hudson Valley by Hudson Valley Magazine for our unique yummyilicious cupcake bars!

In the midst of all of this we have been a part of a variety of events from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City, to celebrity birthday bashes, and TLC’s Four Weddings. If this weren’t enough, we were awarded business of the year by Marist College.

We thank you so much for looking at our campaign and we hope that one day soon we will be able to drive up to your place, space, city or town & make your day, week or event a Rockin one to remember!
