So Bake it Pretty is about to start selling cupcakes. Like, we are essentially going to transform half of the shop into a cupcakery (don’t you hate that word?) And some of the cupcakes we sell are going to be from Sugarbomb Bakery. Which is huge, you guys. It basically means that my business is going to, I don’t know, quadruple maybe? I am, as you would expect, ecstatic. But it also means that I will be working a WHOLE LOT more than I am now. So get ready for a whole new chapter for Sugarbomb.
So what does that have to free mini cupcakes? Well I’ll tell you: Yesterday we gave away free cupcakes from Sugarbomb Bakery all day in exchange for people completing a really simple survey about what they wanted to see in a cupcake bakery in Downtown Asheville. The day was a big blur, and I ended up giving away around eighty five cupcakes. It was awesome.
One really awesome thing was that, other than a little sign that said so, there was no way for people to know that the cupcakes were vegan. And people ate and enjoyed them, thinking they were full of animal products. It is always awesome to tell someone that the food they just enjoyed was vegan, and see the surprise on their faces. And then, of course, the people who actually are vegan were super-excited to be able to find something they could eat. Here’s our friend Julia, who came down especially to get vegan cupcakes:
So I made three varieties of cupcakes. There was Chocolate with Toasted Coconut Frosting:
And Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Almond Frosting:
The last ones were Orange Cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting
I think those were my favorite. This was my first attempt at using the Jumbo French Pastry Tip. I resisted it for a long time, for some stupid reason. Obviously, the effect is totally cute, and I will absolutely be using it from now on.
