    To many people, a cake is just another sweet treat expected at a birthday party. For many Richmonders though, it’s not really a cake, unless it’s a Ukrop’s cake!  When I first moved here, I thought this was an exaggeration, but when we’d host a party at work for any reason, the coordinator always had to have a cake from Ukrop’s— one bite is all it took…and I immediately understood why.

    After the retail stores were closed, I was thrilled to hear that we would still be able to get Ukrop’s cake through MARTIN’S. Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods bakes tens of thousands of cakes for special occasions every year including birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, and, yes, even weddings.  Actually, there really isn’t an occasion necessary to enjoy that great-tasting, lip-smacking, finger-licking flavor: just treat yourself anytime and don’t feel guilty!

    Haven’t had a Ukrop’s cake lately?  We can fix that.  We are giving away a gift card ($25 value) for a Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods cake to one lucky reader! ENTER HERE!

    We’ll announce the winner by 3/10/11. Good luck!

    My husband loves cupcakes.  He’s always loved cupcakes.  Lately I’ve seen “gourmet” cupcakes popping up all over the city with some interesting flavors.  We’ve tried them all.  So when somebody asked him which ones he liked best, he thought about it for a few minutes and then the answer was clear:  Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods cupcakes.  He’s been enjoying their cupcakes for as long as he can remember and they’re still his favorite.  Couple that with their wonderful Valentine’s Day decorations and I have the perfect treat for my Valentine!

    Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods holiday decorated cupcakes also make a festive and delicious treat to bring to any party or event you may be attending to celebrate Valetine’s Day.
