Heavenly Yet Beautiful Cupcakes
Starting my own cupcake company was a thrill and I learn so much. But I yearned for the calm of taking my time to create perfect little decorations and unique flavor combinations. After selling my business, I decided to focus on teaching my craft. I hope this site will inspire you to create and indulge in one of the best and most satisfying desserts...the cupcake.

We started by creating the eggnog pudding and the recipe called for Bourbon. I instantly cringed but stuck to the recipe. We then had to figure out what kind of cake to create. We mixed a base vanilla batter and then added several spices like nutmeg that made the raw batter taste more holiday-like. Once the cupcakes cooled, we piped in the Bourbon eggnog pudding into each cupcake. The aroma of the spices with the Bourbon eggnog was to die for. I was shocked on how yummy they smelled. Then came the frosting. We experimented with our buttercream which is our signature. It's what people love the most about our cupcakes. But instead of adding an eggnog mix to it, we went a step further and added more Bourbon along with a syrup. The end product was a knock-out.
