Which classic cupcake?April 2, 2008 at 3:13 PM | Posted in cupcakes | 46 Comments
Its probably not a secret that I bake alot of cupcakes (honest its true!) and my taste testers range from family to friends to T’s coworkers. I rarely eat more than one of any cupcake I bake but I know its good when I find myself eating 2 or 3 of them. When I bake I always love playing with flavor combination but eventually I find myself coming back to the classics – chocolate, vanilla and red velvet – when I am asked which cupcake flavor I would choose.
Since this past TWD challenge of gooey-licious chocolate cupcakes, I have fallen in love with chocolate again. I wouldn’t say I am a choco-holic but to make sure I didn’t eat them all T brought some to work. His coworkers raved about them. One CW raved so much she asked T if I took cupcake orders for their upcoming departmental meeting. Since he’s my #1 fan, he knows how to sell me and now I have a cupcake order due next week!
M gave me full creative reign. But that can be good and bad… I think I’d rather have a little direction than no direction at all so I know I am on the right track with my customer’s tastes and expectations. Since I didn’t get much more than “we trust you” I am steering towards less is more cupcake concept – minimal cupcake decor, simple flavors and easy eat-ability b/c thats what *I* would want in a cupcake esp considering the professional environment.
I narrowed down the choices. But I need some IHC reader help… What is your flavor?
