Well, not all that much cupcake shopping. I’m not complaining, but it was much more fun when we were in a panic to get more cupcakes on the stands because so many were selling so quickly.
I suppose coming up on “Mud Season” may have a little to do with the reduced traffic, but at least it will make me feel less guilty to take some weekends off.
We’ve got some super delicious cupcakes though and it’s become more difficult to avoid eating the leftovers.
We’ve got Green Velvet until this Saturday. Just a variation on Red Velvet with green food coloring subbed in. (and NO cake mix was used in the making of this cupcake) I just saw a Green Velvet online somewhere that listed yellow cake mix in the recipe. No thank you, I’ll pass on the yellow cake mix…….for now. After all, cake mix does have it’s place, just not in our shop.
Banana White Chocolate, which is super good. The frosting isn’t what I had originally intended but it’s so creamy and delicious. It’s a white chocolate buttercream. I was going to go with white chocolate cream cheese, but we had a bit of a cream cheese shortage, so I had to improvise.
The cake has a fine crumb and is super moist with a really great banana flavor. I think since it’s banana, it could be a perfect breakfast. Like banana bread, or a banana muffin. But with buttery sweet goodness on top…
Green Velvet has cream cheese frosting, so this could be a good breakfast option too…
I think I’ll behave and have my nonfat yogurt with fruit and granola instead. I’m sure there will be cupcakes later after closing.
We’ve also got a really good Stout Cupcake with chocolate buttercream. I tried the ganache frosting and it didn’t really work out for me on the cupcakes. It’s a little chilly in the shop and the ganache gets too firm for my liking.
My first batch of Stout Cupcakes was not so great, but this second time around they are spectacular. Super fudgy with a slight hint of beer at the end. (even though there is 2 cups of beer in the recipe the flavor is subtle) The beer also really brings out the chocolate flavor.
I made the swirly cookies again, my swirls didn’t come out so great this time. For this batch I made one full batch of the vanilla dough and one full batch for the strawberry. I really wanted much bigger cookies and I got bigger cookies, but the dough was thick and I may have chilled it for too long because it split when I rolled it. You can see the imperfections in the swirls.
I baked half of them on sticks then wrapped them in little cello bags, twist tied and finished with a grosgrain bow. I think these are just so fun and would make an adorable addition to an Easter basket, or even a favor at a place setting.
We’re just about sold out of the swirly cookies, so I’ll be trying again to get that perfect swirl on a big cookie.
I made some adorable custom cookies featuring a new monkey cookie, but you’ll have to wait to see that!!!
