The Cup is excited to share its 2023 April Fools’ Day dessert — this year inspired by one of America’s favorite foods — Pizza!!!
This year the Cup’s clever bakers are baking up two types of personal-sized 6-in. pizzas. Your choice of cheese or sausage and pepperoni pizza – each made with a brown sugar cookie “crust,” mixed berry “pizza sauce,” and shredded vanilla buttercream “mozzarella cheese.” For the meat-lovers option, your pizza will be topped with a chocolate cereal “sausage,” and twice-baked red velvet “pepperoni.”
“Once again, our chef has designed and developed an incredible reproduction of a favorite savory dish – completely out of our cake, buttercream and cookie ingredients. It not only looks amazing, but it tastes great as well!” Says Ericka Frank, owner of The Cup. “We thought it would be fun to give our fake pizzeria a name, so we came up with Tazza Pizza, Tazza means “Cup” in Italian.”
Previously The Cup has created sweet treats mimicking mashed potatoes and gravy (2015), a taco salad (2016), a root beer float (2017), fried rice (2018), spaghetti and meatballs (2019), slider and fries (2020), toasted ravioli (2021), and chicken and waffles (2022).
Due to its continued increase in popularity, The Cup’s April Fools’ Pizza special will only be available by pre-order online at cravethecup.com beginning March 13 until sold out. In the past, they sold out in just a day or two. Order pick-ups are Thursday, March 30 through Saturday, April 1 at both locations of The Cup (Central West End and Edwardsville, IL). The April Fools’ special will not be available for walk-in purchase, so do not wait to order. Go to cravethecup.com to order and schedule your pick-up date before they’re gone.
