Have you noticed? Cupcakes are all the rage. So many flavors, so many frostings, so many toppings, and so many sizes! Cupcakes have become a whimsical replacement for traditional desserts. I remember when they were just a simple treat to send to school for kids’ birthdays—now they pop up all over, even at wedding receptions!
For those in the Connecticut area, I have started a cupcake venture, Cupcakes for a Cause. Part of the proceeds are donated to a local animal shelter. Visit my website and see my limited holiday flavors!! www.cupcakecause.com
Showcased in the above photo is one of my offerings – Cup o’ Joe (developed in honor of my A LA CARTE partner, Joe, who makes the best coffee in town!) It is a rich Espresso Cupcake topped with Mocha Buttercream, then sprinkled with chopped candied coffee beans & ground cinnamon.
