(Part 2) - Continuation of Pretty Pui's Surprise Party
I've always had a fascination for prettily decorated cupcakes. I'm not sure if it's a girly thing because I've seen guys look gleefully at them before. Perhaps it's the anticipation of bite-sized goodness in a gorgeously wrapped package.
I've tried loads of commercially produced cupcakes and felt that it was time for a change. So when I found out about Audrey and her delicious cupcakes, I sent her an email immediately. Her prompt reply accompanied by pictures of her works of art sealed the deal for me.
Since we had chosen a pink and white theme for Pretty Pui's party at My Elephant, it was only apt to have cupcakes with the same colour theme. A couple of emails flew back and forth and we finally decided on a garden theme with pink and white flowers and bits of pastel blue to provide some contrast. I didn't want it to be overly sweet, so I chose a dark chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. (For those who don't care much for the bitter edge, there is a milk chocolate option that goes very well with chocolate frosting for a rich chocolate cupcake experience.)
With Christmas around the corner, now would be a great time to try Audrey's cupcakes. Do note that she does this on a part-time basis, so she may not be able to accommodate all orders. You can reach Audrey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
