So.... this summer Rachel and I hosted a delightful baby shower for our friends. It was on a Sunday afternoon, so with most people having already eaten lunch, we decided to simplify my typically extravagant menu and make cupcakes.
Now, these were no ordinary cupcakes. They were homemade, and even teetered on the brink of being considered gourmet (perhaps I editorialize a little much). We had a traditional yellow cake with chocolate frosting, red velvet cake with fluffy white frosting (I call it lard frosting), and orange-flavored cupcakes with a creamy filling and almond buttercream frosting.
Presentation is key: we used geometry, repetition, and symmetry to enhance our edible offerings.
Rachel and I have decided that when we strike oil, hit the lottery, or pull a heist at the local bank, we are quitting our day jobs, moving to the beach, and opening a cake/ cupcake stand. We have lots of ideas for fun names and different flavors (of course, I can't share those because some of you might be enticed to open your own shop). I'm sure we'll offer a discount to loyal followers of Pursuing Pineapple, so keep your eyes peeled and your fingers crossed (that we win the lottery).
