Even though I love love **love** making cards- my first love will always be cupcakes! I have always loved to bake, but I wanted to get better at decorating- so I took some Wilton classes at M's. The classes were *wonderful*, and I soon discovered that I really enjoy making individual treats for people to enjoy!! My style is really simple, but pretty and decadent; I really like to dress my cupcakes up so people feel like they are getting their own little fancy treat!
So here are two "fan favorites" that seem to get requested most often:
The Red Velvet Bars feature a smooth red velvet cake with fresh cream cheese icing spread in the middle of the bar. I top off the bars with just a couple of swirls of the icing and then garnish with hand chopped pecans. For those allergic to nuts- I sprinkle the tops with cinnamon! Mmmmm...
The Drizzle Rich Cupcakes are the most requested and feature a buttery vanilla cake topped with chocolate icing (sadly I haven't mastered chocolate icing just yet :( so- Ms. Crocker does the j-o-b!). The pizazz comes when I drizzle smooth white chocolate over the milk chocolate and top it all off with melted caramel. Yum!!! Now, some might think that it's way too much, but they are usually pleasantly surprised - the cake is light enough that you really get to enjoy the chocolates and caramel without being overwhelmed!!
