♥ Your cupcake history: been making, eating and enjoying cupcakes practically my whole life! I love em!
♥ Why you like cupcakes: they really are just the right amount. I have been making cupcakes only for my daughter's birthday parties. It's the best and easiest way to enjoy cake, for kids especially. :-D
♥ Cupcake photos, recipes, or other interesting cupcake-related photos/tidbits that you found: okay, so I have a teeny weeny cake business that I started up recently after many years of trying to make it in the food industry...and getting let down by the drama. So, I decided today to make some cupcakes to put on my cake website, just cause they really are making a comeback! YAY! so, here's the pictures...
these are the garnishes I made for the tops of the cupcakes. Just some fancy cut strawberries and bananas brushed with a vanilla honey glaze, and some colorful sugar sprinkles for the banana stars. (I dipped the banana in lemon juice first, so they won't brown)
this is the finished product, wedged open to reveal the surprise. They are double chocolate fudge cupcakes, with chocolate fudge icing, and a french vanilla creme on the inside. They are quite yummy!
and the presentation....the stars and strawberries look really awesome together...and I totally love how short a time it takes to pull this off!
I really love this community! It always gives me inspiration and ideas, and just generally helps me think outside the baking box! Thanks a million!
