I was recently contacted by Carmen of C for Cupcake Cupcakery to try her cupcakes. Of course I was excited, especially since she is a local baker. I met up with Carmen in the Orange Circle and got to know a little about her before I tasted her cupcakes.
Carmen found her passion for baking about 8 years ago. Baking is her "magical hobby" because it marries the two things she loves most -- food and art. As you will see below, Carmen is a super talented artist who designs amazing fondant cupcake toppers. Her most popular flavor is Chocolate Orange Zest with Nutella frosting. However, I got to try her Caramel Apple cupcakes.
Carmen knows that I am a triathlete, so she decorated the cupcakes to match my lifestyle. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw her expertly-decorated fondant toppers! Absolutely amazing!
I love these three cupcakes representing swim, bike, and run.
Look at that detail on that watch! Carmen put a lot of time and effort into these decorations. Unbelievable!
Each cupcake was decorated with a different design. Notice that toppers that say "Cupcake" and "Activist"? I feel so special!
So now that you know what I think of Carmen's decorating ability, what about the taste? As I mentioned before, the cupcakes were Caramel Apple. I loved the sweet apple cake with caramel dripping off the frosting. I almost felt bad that I had to take off the fondant toppers, as they were so beautiful. I said almost.
Of course I couldn't eat all these cupcakes myself. I shared them with my friends and their kids and the general consensus was delicious! I wanted them all to myself, but I didn't burn enough calories that day to justify it.
C for Cupcake Cupcakery is great for any occasion -- birthdays, weddings, parties, baby showers, etc. You can check out her available flavors here. Carmen also sells her fondant cupcake toppers and baked goods supplies in her etsy store. You can check them out here.
I love supporting local bakers who deserve some recognition. I know you'll love C for Cupcake Cupcakery as much as I did.
