I really do. I crave cake. Sometimes just plain cake, no frosting, no filling, just good, simple, not too sweet, cake.
But then sometimes I crave mashed potatoes, so there’s no real common thread here.
I was doing so well last week, posting something new almost every day, and then…………..
I don’t know what happened. It seems all it takes is one super busy day and I’m too fried to blog.
We’ve been having a fantastic run in the shop. Two solid weeks of good business, a steady flow of customers, and only a couple of cupcakes gone to waste.
We had a special order cake last week with no particular color specification. “Just make sure it has balloons.”
There was no way I was going to make big, bulbous, icky looking balloons like those nasty ones I’ve seen on Cake Wrecks (and let’s be honest, every Birthday cake in the supermarket) You KNOW what they usually look like.
The cake is one layer each of chocolate and vanilla with chocolate buttercream filling and vanilla buttercream frosting.
The February flavors are finalized and ready for opening today. Traditional Red Velvet with Cream Cheese frosting and a handmade chocolate heart. (callebaut bittersweet and milk chocolate).
Spicy Cinnamon Chocolate: cinnamon, chili cupcake with cinnamon/chocolate buttercream and a chocolate topper. (I’m alternating between chocolate discs with transfer designs and the hearts.
Passion Fruit x3: passion fruit cake, passion fruit curd filling and passion fruit buttercream. Passion fruity good.
So good we needed another picture.
And last, but not least, the Chocolate Caramel Cupcake. Chocolate cake with caramel Swiss Meringue buttercream topped with a hand made caramel truffle.
Of course I nearly killed Dave making the caramel yesterday. Nothing says toxic smoke like burnt sugar. We had to open the garage door to clear the smoke. Now I think I’ve got the hang of it….
