So I keep telling you guys about how we’re changing the Bake it Pretty shop into a cupcake bakery, but so far you don’t have any proof. For all you know, I could be making the whole thing up as a clever ruse to explain away the fact that I have been blogging with an unforgivable lack of frequency. Well, speculate no further! Here, at long last, are some pictures of the brand new bakery.
Our first day’s offerings. The “Southern Culture”, “Salty Dog”, and the “Chocolate Cupcakes with Toasted Coconut” came from my bakery. We had some very happy vegan customers who wandered into the cupcake shop assuming there wouldn’t be anything they could eat!
On the right is a close-up of the Southern Culture cupcakes. The pink lemonade frosting was a big hit!
These were called “Inner Beauty,” and they were a chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream filling, and topped with a double chocolate ganache.
This is a closeup of the “Salty Dog” cupcakes (you can find the recipe for them here) . In the background, you can see the Chocolate Cupcakes with Toasted Coconut. They were in black and white polka dot wrappers that were so cute.
Just look at that full, happy bake case! We have learned a lot about running a bakery (already!), and I’m sure we’ll learn a whole lot more. But we’re having such fun, and I can’t wait to share more with you guys. Oh, and if you’re in the Asheville area, be sure to stop into Bake it Pretty to get some vegan cupcakes!
Oh yeah, P.S. If you follow the Bake it Pretty Blog, you may recognize a lot of these pictures from over there. Thanks to Amanda for letting me use them!
