Working together with local farmers, Cupcake Royale brings its customers the freshest flavors of fresh-churned ice cream straight from the farm. Introducing the Farm Fresh Ice Cream Series. Cupcake Royale’s philosophy has always been natural, fresh, local and this summer, true to its word, the creamery introduces new flavors entirely focused around farm fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, and herbs. The crew at Cupcake Royale will work closely with the farmers and prepare the flavors with expertise and utter respect. If the farmers can’t deliver a fruit fresh that day, then the flavor won’t be produced. It’s that simple. If a fruit runs out for the season, the flavor won’t be back until next year.
“We stand behind Farm Fresh when it comes to our ice cream,” said Nicki Kerbs, Cupcake Royale’s Director of Operations. “If you love a flavor, enjoy it while you can and trust us that it’s about quality, not quantity. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram where we will announce new flavors and watch us meet the farmers, churn the flavors, and highlight all the local goods.”
The Cupcake Royale bakeshop is always busy producing the scratch-made baked goods for all the ice creams. “That is what sets our ice cream apart: we hand make everything from scratch – from the fresh rhubarb preserves that go into the crumble bars (which can be found in the Ginger Rhubarb Crumble ice cream) to the fig newtons that will be folded into the Salted Honey ice cream. We want the whole experience to be handmade by our bakers.” Additionally, Kerbs herself will be preserving lemons for the Preserved Lemon Buttermilk ice cream.
“We take so much pride in the flavors that we have been busy creating and it’s been a fun challenge to hunt down the freshest ingredients and develop recipes that perfectly highlight the farmers’ and makers’ products,” added Kerbs.
