My Christmas gift from my wonderful husband

This is my EARLY (Chris can not ever wait to give me a gift) Christmas present. It was painted by a local artist that is extremely talented. This is actually a picture of our signature Chocolate Cupcake. I would have to say this is one of my favorite gifts I have received. Thank you Chris for the wondeful and thoughtful gift and Thank you Jayne for such beautiful art work!!

Custom Order: Crown Bourbon Cupcakes

This is a custom order that we did for a birthday. They were requesting bourbon cupcakes that were the colors of the Crown bag. The frosting is actually darker purple than it looks in the picture and the gold on top is metallic gold sprinkles. They turned out really nice and I am sure they tasted yummy too!!

Kitchen Inspection Complete!!!

Just finished our kitchen inspection and we passed with flying colors! We can now start selling our cupcakes... We have added two new flavors to our menu this week. "The Traditionalist" which is a delicious moist and buttery yellow cake covered in Old Fashioned Hershey's Chocolate butter cream frosting and topped with a dusting of shaved chocolate. This is sure to please all of the people out there who would just like a simple but delicious cupcake. We also created a more complex flavor " Chocolate Pear" inspired by the Lindt Intense Pear Chocolate Bar. We started with our moist chocolate cupcake and filled it with a slightly sweet pear mixture, topped it with a thin layer of ganache (made out of the chocolate pear bar) and then frosted it with a vanilla bean butter cream. I think we will be adding both of them to the menu!

Here are some of our latest photos, taken by my very talented daughter Madison. She has been doing an amzing job with photograhpy. She does not even have a professional camera... these were taken with an Iphone! Anyway we are still awaiting our kitchen inspection. Tomorrow morning at 9:30!!! We have been  trying lots of new flavors and giving away lots of samples. We are looking for suggestions for Christmas flavors. If your suggestion is chosen we will feature your flavor at our booth during Christmas in Davidson as well as on our website. We would love suggestions!! So far we are thinking:
                                                          Chocolate Peppermint Twist
                                                                  Egg Nog Spice
                                                                   Hot Chocolate (complete with our made from scratch marshmallows!)

Just Baked Cupcakes

This is our first blog post. We were scheduled for our kitchen inspection today at 9:30 and the inspector called and said she had to reschedule. It turns out she had a really bad case of food poisoning. She did reschedule for next Wednesday so we will be officially open for business on October 6th. In the meantime we are testing and giving away lots of cupcakes. Today we tested "Campfire Smores" and "Old Fashioned Apple Spice". Both were really yummy and will definitely be added to the menu.
