You probably think you’ve had a great cupcake- you may even have a favorite bakery that you frequent to get your sugar fix. You may also think you’ve had the best cupcake in the city- you haven’t. Let me explain.
A few weeks ago I had a party where I work, and wanted to serve something special- something different. I usually make my own desserts, but simply didn’t have the time. I reached out to a friend who makes cupcakes for special events. “What type of cupcakes would you like?” she asked. “I’m not sure- give me a few varieties- all chocolate, please.”
Katie Palamara of KatieDid’s cupcakes (you can see her website here) showed up with a trio of deliciousness- chocolate trifle, triple chocolate, and mocha crunch. These are just a few samples of the flavors- she even has vegan raspberry swirl! The cupcakes were meticulously packaged in a baker’s box with a see-through top. Each dessert was nestled in individual inserts within the box ensuring the cupcakes safe, and proper delivery.
Three elements are required for a truly successful cupcake. First, the desserts must look delicious and beautiful- we eat with our eyes first, right? Next, the cake has to be moist, and light. Lastly, the buttercream/icing should be fluffy and flavorful. Check, check, and CHECK! I sampled all three, and was amazed at the quality- the only difficulty I had was choosing one that I liked the most.
You haven’t had the best cupcake in the city unless you’ve sampled one of these gems. These signature cupcakes are prepared by a true artisan- someone who understands the importance of dessert. My advice? Try them all!
