Ok, with all of our chaos around this house, the one thing that serves as my stress relief...CUPCAKES!
Here's what I've come up with...

The first I tried were Rolo Cupcakes, super yummy with a rolo inside and salted caramel buttercream. These are amazing and big sellers!Then I moved on to Rum Chata Cupcakes. Wow, that's all I can say. If you haven't tried Rum Chata, it's fantastic (google it). But as a Frosting, it's incredible!

To accompany the Rum Chata cakes I decided to make a Banana Split cupcake. This had a banana pineapple cake topped with a salted butterscotch frosting and a fresh strawberry. These were a big hit, especially with my 4 year old Wyatt.

Next I tried a Strawberry Shortcake cupcake. This was to die for. I filled it (my first time with filling) with a stewed strawberry whipped cream and topped it with a strawberry cream cheese/buttercream frosting. I used a vanilla almond cake and they went over with a bang! Loved it. Sorry, no picture for this one.

I moved on to one I had in my head for a quite awhile without disappointment. It's a Raspberry Lemon cupcake. OOOOOOhhhhh it was good. I started with a vanilla almond poppyseed cake, filled it with a lemon cream, and topped it with a raspberry cream cheese/buttercream frosting. It is amazing!

Finally, in an ode to my husband and the fire department and their unnatural obsession with Guinness and Whisky, I made an Irish Car Bomb cupcake. This was a Guinness chocolate cake, filled with a whiskey ganache and topped with a Bailey's Irish Cream, cream cheese, frosting. It's pretty rich but wonderful!
So here's the skinny. They are all for sale, $20 per dozen or $10 per 1/2 dozen. None are for sale as a single cupcake at this time. If interested you can send me an email: I would be happy to whip them up, I'm in the Grand Island area and do not ship. I can't even fathom what that would entail at this time. Also I'm in development of an Oatmeal Scotchie cupcake with a Rum Chata/Butterscotch Schnapps frosting and a mini oatmeal cookie on top. I have an order due Wed so will have it developed by then! I will try anything so if you have an idea that I don't have, shoot it my way! I don't do ordinary flavors, that's what the super market is for, but I love extraordinary ideas! Enjoy
