While the first set of cupcakes were in the oven, Ben and I worked on the next batch - chocolate and heath bar. I hadn't tried a chocolate before and normally don't like chocolate cake so I knew this was risky. To top those off, we tried a new frosting recipe from Cooks magazine (the same place I got my cupcake recipe from) and rolled the edges in Heath bits. We were in a hurry so we quickly picked up the kitchen, loaded the cupcakes in the box and hopped in the car. Transport was a little tricky, but we managed.
I set up a little table complete with business cards at the show and prepared to sell cupcakes that I'd never tried before which was a little risky. Unfortunately, less people were showing up than expected. Halfway through the first performance, Ben and I decided to try a bit of our work... and it was AMAZING. I don't want to toot my own horn too much, but those chocolate heath cupcakes were incredible. In the end, most of the cupcakes got eaten. Although many were given away for free, I consider Cutecakes Cupcakery's first event a success!
Be sure to check out the new poll on the left side of the page. In the spirit of the show, I want to know how many of my readers have a Twitter.
