Thunder Pig’s Flying Circus
A Candy and Cocktail Event of Epic Sweetness
Thunder Pig is appearing at Hello Cupcake Monday evenings, starting in April...and he's a Pig
with grand plans. Thunder Pig's Flying Circus will feature tons of sweet treats for circus-goers.
Upon arrival, you'll enter Thunder Pig's Big Top and be treated to three rings of delicious treats.
In Ring Number One, marshmallows in a variety of flavors, mallow cakes, and moon pies.
Ring Number Two features a selection of candies including handcrafted caramels, fruit gels,
chocolate bark, truffles, marzipan, and meringues. In Ring Number Three, Thunder Pig
will treat you to biscotti and premium coffee.
And, because Thunder Pig likes to party, he'll also be offering a specially
crafted cocktail, the Sideshow, just for his friends at the circus.
