Okay - most of you know I have a cake making hobby, but this time I brought it down to a miniature scale. These cupcakes are about the size of quarters and for a school bake sale. It's a golden yellow cake, a little vanilla syrup and topped with a vanilla or a chocolate fondant. The buttercream flowers and leaves are kona coffee flavored.
I couldn't find my smallest tips (the container they are in keeps falling open and I end up with a bag of about 100 silver things that all sort of look alike). So if you are wondering why I'm dozy today, these kept me on my feet till about 10:30 last night. Hopefully, they sell well.
***Update! I had considered them selling 4/$1. The teens liked them enough to mark the 0.50 each or 3/$1 and happily by the end of the night there were only 3 left and there were still customers in line. Which brings me to the thought: people often under value their work.
I thought I'd share a website for the coolest cake business in Orange County. It shows what I love about cakes - artsy, fun, and wit (in a pretty tasty package).
If anyone wants to buy me a tee shirt from there, I like the one with the cake and sabers that reads "You Want a Piece of Me"... cuz really with names like "Naughty Monkey" and "Miss Fancy Pants" I do!
