Cupcake Wrapper Interview with Lyndsey Fagerlund

August 26th, 2013 by admin

We’re excited to showcase one of our favorite cupcake wrapper interview clients Lyndsey Fagerlund. Lyndsey started to use our product many years ago and is a truly creative woman. She also is a photographer who loves to bake. Learn a bit more about Lyndsey below and pick up some great tips on how to created a wedding photograph cupcake tower and a tasty cupcake frosting recipe.

Cupcake Wrapper Interview with Lyndsey Fagerlund

1.     Tell us a little bit about your company and how you got your start? I started my photography business, Lyndsey Fagerlund Photography, in 2009. I started honing my skills by taking photos of the cupcakes I created. Now I love photographing cupcakes at weddings and children’s birthday parties! I am based in Salt Lake City, and often work in Seattle and Los Angeles. I specialize in authentic, happy images that show lots of emotion. I still love to create cupcakes for my kids. Making up fun frosting flavors and creating themed decorations are my favorite part!

2.      What’s the most memorable event you’ve done? This is a hard one, because I have a client in Los Angeles that has hired me to photograph the most amazing events! I would say it’s a tie between their Mermaid/Pirate and Candyland themed events. The Mermaid event had a live mermaid and 2 life-size mermaid cakes for their twins! They also had the Sprinkles Cupcakes truck on site handing out their delish cupcakes. The Candyland party was just amazing, with every single candy detail you could imagine. The kids played Candyland on a life-size board game with real characters, too. Their make-your-own cupcake stand was a hit!

Thing 1 Cupcake and Thing 2 Cupcake

3.     Knowing your love for cupcakes, what was your first childhood memory involving cupcakes? I don’t have a specific memory from when I was younger, but I do know I have always been a frosting person! My husband actually scrapes off some of his frosting (gasp!), but that just leaves more for me! My favorite memory involving cupcakes was a “cupcake par-tea” that my friend Kara Allen and I put together for our friends. We taught a little bit about frosting and decorating and everyone got to decorate their own cupcakes!

4.     What is your favorite cupcake flavor? Lemon, hands down!

5.     Any fun baking tips? I always encourage friends to play around a little bit! I know it’s said that you have to follow instructions exactly for baking, but as long as I make sure the basic ingredients are right, my creations have turned out pretty yummy! You can pick a vanilla cake mix if you are worried and just try adding something yourself! Frosting is the easiest to play around with. I love making lemon frosting from scratch.

6.     Just for fun; what is your favorite Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wrapper design? Definitely the Damask cupcake wrappers! I use them all the time! They are perfect for wedding cupcakes.

7.     Anything else you’d like to add? Frosting Recipe :)

Lemon Buttercream Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened (do not substitute)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
Zest from 1 lemon
powdered sugar (approximately 4 to 5 cups)

Cream butter in the bowl of an electric mixer. Add vanilla, milk, salt, and lemon zest. Add 2 cups powdered sugar and blend, adding more powdered sugar to get the consistency you want. (To pipe the frosting, you’ll want at least 4 cups total. Just keep adding a cup at a time until it is thick enough.)

4th of July Cupcake Wrappers Blue

For our recipe we chose to make an All American favorite Vanilla Cupcake with Vanilla frosting. It always seems to be a crowd-pleaser with it’s thick vanilla buttercream frosting. We used our Olivia Blue Cupcake Wrappers with a swirl of white and topped with red and blue sprinkles and a patriotic cupcake pick. It really stood out displayed on the all white wooden cupcake stand and table runner by Pretty Party Details.

4th of July Cupcake Wrappers

In our display we added various red, white and blue props including popcorn boxes for peanuts, hotdog trays, red apples, sipping bottles with our red paper straws and blue paper straws, We also incorporated the Pretty Party Details ribbon skirt but used it as a hanging backdrop behind our 4th of July cupcake display. We love how festive they make the event!

We hope you enjoy this recipe and checking out all the other bloggers sites featuring recipes, cupcakes dressed in our Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wrappers and other fun cupcake tip ideas. Wishing you all a wonderful 4th of July.

Vanilla Cupcakes (recipe from Joy of Baking):
Makes about 12 cupcakes
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup (130 grams) granulated white sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Zest of 1 large lemon (outer yellow skin)
1 1/2 cups (195 grams) all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (60 ml) milk

Confectioners (Buttercream) Frosting:
2 cups (230 grams) confectioners sugar (icing or powdered sugar), sifted
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk or light cream
Assorted food colors (if desired)

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl whisk together the lemon zest, flour, baking powder, and salt.

With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture and milk, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Evenly fill the muffin cups with the batter and bake for about 17 – 20 minutes or just until set and a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. (Always check a few minutes before the stated baking time. Do not over bake or the cupcakes will be dry.) Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Once the cupcakes have completely cooled, frost with icing. If you want flat topped cupcakes then slice off the dome of each cupcake, with a sharp knife, before frosting. If you want to pipe the frosting, I like to use a large Wilton 1M star decorating tip. Cupcakes are best eaten the same day they are made, but they can be covered and stored for a few days.

Confectioners (Buttercream) Frosting: In an electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, cream the butter until smooth and well blended. Add the vanilla extract. With the mixer on low speed, gradually beat in the sugar. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the milk and beat on high speed until frosting is light and fluffy (about 3-4 minutes). Add a little more milk or sugar, if needed. Tint the frosting with desired food color (I use the paste food coloring that is available at cake decorating stores and party stores).

We’re super excited about this Cupcake Couture Wrappers Blog Party and we will know you will enjoy perusing all the deliciously decorated cupcakes! See below for our Blueberry Lemon Cupcake with Lemon Zest Cream Cheese Frosting.

Blueberry Lemon Cupcake with Lemon Zest Cream Cheese Frosting

Cupcakes (makes 6):
1 cup Cake Flour
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 large egg
  1/4 cup sugar (or honey)
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
1/2 cup fresh blueberries

lemon blueberry cupcake ingredients

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line 6 cups of a muffin pan with baking liners. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Separately whisk together the egg, honey, and lemon zest. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and stir to combine. Fold in the berries.

lemon blueberry cupcake batter

Divide the batter among the lined muffin cups. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. Cool completely. Note: I noticed the cupcake was a bit more dense like a muffin than I had hoped. Next time we make these we will add either butter/oil (was trying to be healthy on this recipe) or an additional egg. Both will help make them lighter and moister.

lemon cream cheese frosting

Ok now on to the Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting. It is to die for!! Love, love, love this recipe! We found this recipe on Naturebox.com and was meant for 30 cupcakes so we revised the recipe down for our 6 cupcakes we were making for our small dinner gathering.

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting:
1/3 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 cup powdered sugar
2 ounces cold low-fat cream cheese
1/2 teaspoons  lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large bowl or Kitchen Aid, mix together on low speed and gradually increasing to medium, beat butter and powdered sugar until butter is broken into pea-size pieces and incorporated with the sugar, scraping bowl occasionally, about 3 minutes. Reduce speed to medium-low. Add cream cheese until all cream cheese is incorporated, scraping bowl occasionally. Add lemon zest and vanilla; increase speed to medium-high and beat until frosting is smooth, about 30 seconds.Frosting Piping Bag with star Tip

Using a piping bag fitted with a large star tip, top cupcakes with frosting. If frosting is too thick to pipe, let stand at room temperature 10 minutes before piping or we added a bit of lemon juice to the ingredients (why not?). Decorate each cupcake with one single blueberry, wrap with Bella Cupcake Couture wrappers and Pink Paper Straws.

Purple Cupcake Wrappers

Decoration:
Blueberries
Pink Paper Straws (cut in thirds)

Under the Sea with Blue Straws and Cupcake Wrappers – Dolce Designs

May 7th, 2013 by admin

Looking for a fun and easy way to create an Under the Sea theme for your next kids party. It’s simple to create this Ocean theme with blue straws, sea blue cupcake wrappers , fish bowls, starfish cookies, itty bitty Fishy Banner, Blue Macarons, Sea Blue Rock Candy and more.

Blue Straws

Under the Sea Party Theme by Dolce Designs

One of our clients Jesi of Dolce Designs created this theme for one of her recent clients. They used our blue straws for the adorable cakepops shown here.

Aqua sea blue straws Blue straws

 You can also see how perfect our sea blue cupcake wrappers or sky blue cupcake wraps would be for this theme.

blue cupcake wrappersSea Blue Cupcake Wrappers
Now, we want to share all the photo details of the event and a special interview with the designer, Jesi of Dolce Designs. You’ll learn about how she got started in this line of business, her tips to folks getting married and favorite cupcake flavors. Enjoy!

228110_10150187637536182_4906643_n

Tell us about the event, who was it for and how did the theme come together?

This was a birthday party for a tween girl who adores the ocean and the color blue. I created a “blue room” by hanging up blue curtains in the window and a curtain of tri-colored streamers in the arch separating the party room from the next room in the house. The circle streamers and balloons were there as “bubbles”, and the fishing net and sea shells scattered throughout further enhanced the oceanic atmosphere.

The decor as well as the cake were kept simple and “grown up”, and I stayed as far as possible from the cartoony ocean theme usually seen for little boys. I wanted this to be a girly ocean theme, and the birthday girl love it!
Ocean Blue Party theme

 Tell us how you got started in the event planning business? 

I’ve been baking and decorating cakes for years, and I’ve always loved planning my family’s birthday parties…so it was natural for me to go beyond just making the cake  to designing the entire event. I’ve always gone all out with birthdays even if we had just a handful of guests. I want the image of mom slaving away in the kitchen baking countless cupcakes and cakepops engraved in their little minds.

About two years ago a friend of mine showed me a picture of a simple but beautiful dessert table, and I knew it was something I would love doing. I started making decorations that same day and couldn’t stop. I spent a week making fans, pom poms, banners, you name it. And this was before I even knew about Pinterest! (back in the day when you needed an invitation to join, remember?). Now the inspiration found online from other designers is endless!

Ocean Blue Theme Table

We noticed you have a lot of cupcakes, cakes and macaroons in your displays. Do you bake all your own goodies? 

I sure do! I started making cakes and cupcakes years ago, then when cakepops first came out I thought they were adorable and followed a tutorial on the Pioneer Woman’s website (love her). Once I got the basics down I stared experimenting with my own recipes and flavors. The frosted sugar cookies followed, and lastly, I just HAD to master zee Fwench macaron. It took me three tries but I’m glad I looked failure in the eye and kept on piping. They are always a big hit.

The neat thing is, all of my baked goods can be converted to gluten and/or dairy free for those on a special diet. Over the years after being disappointed with gluten free recipes I’d find online, and the sugar laden GF cookies I’d buy at the store, I just decided to develop my own. Most people are none the wiser. I usually wait until they finish something to tell them it’s gluten free and they can’t believe it.

Ocean Theme Cake with Fish Banner

What are your best selling event theme?

By far everyone loves vintage/country chic. Which is great considering I live 5 min away from a huge antique mall. I want to be dropped off there and left to shop (with no children next to me asking “what’s THIS for?” every five seconds) for an entire week. It is my favorite style as well.

Ocean Blue Bottle Wrap

What is one tip you would give to a bride planning her wedding dessert 

My husband and I eloped 12 years ago and didn’t tell anyone we were getting married. And even though it was romantic, I didn’t think at the time that years later, I’d wish I had a big wedding with a beautiful wedding gown and a big cake. So my advise would be, go for the wedding of your dreams! Whether you want a grand dessert table with lots of gorgeous desserts or you want simple chic with just a few delicious goodies, it’s about what YOU want. Years later you’ll look at the photos and remember everything was exactly how you wanted it.

 Ocean Theme Party for Kids

What’s your favorite cupcake flavor? 

My favorite cupcake flavor is anything citrusy (made with real orange and lemon peel please!), and if it has warm Italian meringue on top, even better! Reminds me of Lemon meringue pie. But of course rich chocolate is a close second.

Ocean theme dessert table

 

Just for fun; what is your favorite Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wrapper design?

I love all the cupcake wrappers! But my favorite would have to be the white/gold damask and the pink/black damask. They are adorable!

Haute Cakes & Zebra Cupcake Wrappers

April 23rd, 2013 by admin

What do haute cupcakes and Zebra Cupcake Wrappers have in common? Jessie of Jessie’s Haute Cakes!! We’re excited to share our first cupcake baker interview with a baker who has there Cottage Foods License. She’s a total sweet heart! Hear about her journey into the Haute Cupcake world!

Jessies Haute Cakes

  1.    How long have you been baking cupcakes?
I have been baking for about 3 ½ years now. I had been on a mission to find a delicious cupcake and after trying several places that seemed to get great reviews, I wasn’t impressed with any of them. So I set out to make my own. It took a lot of trial and error, considering I was not a baker to begin with, but I soon realized that I had a real knack for it and truly enjoyed making them.

2.    When did you decide you wanted to start your own cupcake business?
My first cupcake was a Marbled Malt Ball for my daughter’s teacher and they were a huge success. It wasn’t long before they were being requested for every event and party at school, and I realized that I really had something! So, I started looking into different options for starting a business. I heard about the new Cottage Foods law and decided that this was the way for me to go. It took me a few months to get all of the paperwork put together, but I am pleased to say that I passed with flying colors and am looking forward to seeing where this journey takes me!

3.    What is the most memorable event you’ve baked for?
I have had the opportunity to take part in many fun events, including a fashion show, the recent Seattle Underground Markets, craft fairs and even more recently, the Grand Opening Party for OldSchool PinUps and Seattle Retro Photography. I love seeing the smiles that people get when they see my cupcakes, or taste them for the first time; it is truly an incredible experience. It certainly makes all of the hard work and effort put into each one worth every second.

 4.    What is your favorite cupcake flavor?
I actually have several that I love, but if I had to narrow it down a bit a few of my top favorites would include Chocolate Salted Caramel, Lemon Coconut and Buttermilk Maple Bacon!zebra cupcake wrappers

 

5.    Tell us about the recent special occasion where you used Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wrappers?
I had the opportunity to use Bella Cupcake Couture zebra cupcake wrappers at my daughter’s 11th birthday party. It was a pink and zebra rockstar themed party. I made custom fondant toppers with guitars, microphones, stars and roses for each of the cupcakes. The zebra print wrappers worked perfectly to tie everything together!zebra cupcake wrappers

6.    Do you have a favorite Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wrapper?
I love all of your cupcake wrappers! There are so many beautiful designs and colors to choose from, and the quality is excellent. I’m looking forward to many events in the future when I can use even more of them, and offer them as an option on all of my custom orders!

7.     Anything else exciting you’d like to add?
I am pleased to announce that I will be at several upcoming Farmers Markets this summer! The dates are posted on my Facebook page, and I will be updating my website soon as well. I look forward to seeing many happy, smiling faces enjoying my tasty cupcakes at the North Bend and Sammamish Farmers Markets that I will be attending full time. I will also be at the Juanita and Shoreline Farmers Markets part time this season!

Bella Cupcake Couture visits Wanna Cupcake

April 18th, 2013 by admin

We at Bella Cupcake Couture had the honor this weekend to visit one of our local cupcake shops in the area Wanna Cupcake? (yes please!)

Wanna Cupcake Storefront in Puyallup

This cute little shop can be found in Puyallup Washington and they sell a variety of cupcakes, cupcake supplies including our cupcake wrappers for baby showers, weddings birthdays and more.

Wanna Cupcake Shop

When you walk in you see beautiful black candle opera chandeliers hanging over the cupcakes beautifully presented on pink pedestals.

Wanna Cupcake Store

A variety of flavors were on display and I drooled over almost every one.

The flavors of the day included S’mores, Lemon Raspberry, Caramel apple filled, Butterfinger, Strawberry with Italian Meringue and more.

 

Wanna Cupcakes Store

From the front counter you can take a peek inside their giant kitchen to see all the work and passion that goes into making these cupcakes.

Wanna Cupcake Kitchen

There were racks and racks of cupcakes ready to fill the spot as the cupcakes were sold. During this day part of their team was just coming in from the local farmers market. How great is that? Picking up freshly made cupcakes with your veggies  down at your local market.  The owners Karie & Jim Romano were there as well. They are super sweet couple and take a lot of care in what they do. They’re very passionate about their business and want to share the cupcake love with everyone.

Here is a selection of some of their cupcakes:

Sky Blue Cupcake Wraps

Lemon Raspberry Cupcake at Wanna Cupcakes

S'mores Cupcakes by Wanna Cupcake

Here’s a selection of our Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wrappers they have on display for clients to order or pick up that day.

A Dozen Wanna Cupcakes

That day they sent us home with a dozen cupcakes to sample. They also had a few other treats and I couldn’t resist including one of their lemon bars. It was one of the best I’ve ever had in my life. It had a nice crispy crust and tasty tangy lemon curd filling a nice light topping. Wanna Cupcake? And a Lemon Bar? And a Cookie? Yes, yes and yes!

Wanna Cupcake Tasting

I was able to take the cupcakes to a local restaurant where I was meeting with friends that night. As you can tell we  devoured them. We cut each one to small pieces so we each could try a little of everything. The crowd favorites were the Strawberry Italian Meringue and the Big Birthday cupcake which was topped with fun sprinkles.

Cupcake Shops Interview: Cupcake Pilots

April 16th, 2013 by admin
Today’s cupcake shops interview is with Dani of the Cupcake Pilots. They have a wonderful mother-daughter story including how they created this company for the love of all of their military families, being on Cupcake Wars  and the love of a Chocolate Bourbon Cupcake (yes please!).
Cake Pilots Cupcake Interview with Bella

Cupcake Pilots

Tell us a little bit about your bakery and how you got your start? Cupcake Pilots is a military family owned and operated cupcakery. We got our start by doing what we love, baking and supporting our military. My daughters and I began bringing cupcakes to different military family events and sending in free cupcakes to the men and women serving our country. From there, word of mouth spread and our company took flight!

What was your first childhood memory involving cupcakes? My first childhood memory involving cupcakes didn’t start out with cupcakes at all. My mother was a culinary artist growing up and made all sorts of cakes. I was always jealous of the people who were receiving the cakes my mother baked and wished I could have one of her beautiful and delicious creations. As an adult it is excited to know that my cupcakes allows everyone to have their own little beautiful and delicious creation.
What is your top 3 best selling cupcakes? Cupcake Pilots’ top 3 selling cupcakes are our Cookies N’ Cream made with a whole sandwich cookie at the bottom, our S’more which is topped with a homemade marshmallow frosting and then toasted, and our Banana Cream Pie that has a Nilla Waffer crust.

What is your favorite cupcake flavor?My favorite cupcake flavor is our Chocolate Bourbon cupcake. It has to be the most moist chocolate cake I’ve ever tasted or baked. The bourbon and chocolate really play off each other’s flavors. The cupcake is topped with a salted bourbon caramel and fudge frosting. What’s not to like about that!
Is there an innovation you’d like to see made to the cupcake that would improve it for you?The innovation we would like to see made to the cupcake that would improve it for us would be not on the cake itself but its ability to not be so delicate in the shipping process…We’d love to be able to send cupcakes to our troops overseas but the shipping process is so complex and expensive!
What’s the most memorable cupcake event you’ve done?The most memorable cupcake event Cupcake Pilots has done has got to be the Magnificent Mile Tree Lighting Ceremony in Chicago, IL. When we won Cupcake Wars during season 7, we had to bake and frost 1,000 cupcakes for display at the holiday event. Getting to experience it during the holidays as a family was very special!

Patriotic Cupcake Wrapper

Stars & Stripes Patriotic Cupcake Wrappers

Just for fun; what is your favorite Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wrapper design? Cupcake Pilots is a military family owned and operated business, so our favorite Bella Cupcake couture cupcake wrapper designs have got to be your Patriotic Stars & Stripes as well as your Camouflage. These designs are great for our cupcakes and we love that we can get them year round as well as in bulk!

Cupcake Baker Interview- LoveN Spoonful

March 28th, 2013 by admin

Today’s cupcake baker interview is with one of our favorite clients, Nancy Schaub of LoveN Spoonful. Nancy has been using our cupcake wrappers to decorate her cupcakes for a couple years now and we always adore how they turn out. We were so pleased to ask her to be one of our cupcake baker interviews today.

NANCY birthday closeup

  1. Tell us a little bit about you and how you got your start?
    My business is home based “hobby” as I am employed full time and began about 2 1/2 years ago. I read an article in the newspaper about a woman who made chocolate chip cookies and gave all her proceeds to charity. I had recently visited my best friend in Dallas and we had gone to Sprinkles Cupcakes. I loved the concept of a cupcakery but knew it would not be feasible in my small community. I decided to try my hand at making some cupcakes at home with the intent that I would do some for profit and that would allow me to donate to various charities. I have always had an interest in music and my favorite holiday is Valentine’s Day. One day the inspiration came to name each cupcake with a song that had the word “love” in the title and the name LoveN Spoonful was chosen. I now keep very busy making cupcakes for baby and bridal showers, birthdays, weddings, corporate events and other special occasions and, in turn, can regularly contribute to events for breast cancer awareness, St. Jude Children’s Research hospital, and local fundraisers.Valentine's Day Cupcake Wrappers
  2. What was your first childhood memory involving cupcakes?
    One of my favorite toys as a child was my Easy Bake Oven. I loved using the little mixes to make cakes and cupcakes.
  3. What is your top 3 best selling cupcakes?
    Chocolate peanut butter, red velvet and lemon.
  4. What is your favorite cupcake flavor?
    Some see this as boring, I see it as a classic. It’s vanilla cake with vanilla frosting. And to go with it, my favorite ice cream-vanilla.
  5. Is there an innovation you’d like to see made to the cupcake that would improve it for you?
    I think cupcakes are darn perfect just the way they are.cupcake-baker-nancy-wrappers-stripes 8
  6. What’s the most memorable cupcake event you’ve done?
    This past fall, LoveN Spoonful organized a quarter auction here in my community with all of the proceeds going to St. Jude. Using my business and personal contacts, I was able to get 50 unique donations to be auctioned off, including several boxes of my cupcakes. I had told the woman in charge of fundraising for St. Jude that I thought we could raise $500. I was shocked at the end of the night when the total was $1,406! THey were thrilled and so was I. Everyone had a great time supporting such a worthy cause.
  7. Just for fun; what is your favorite Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wrapper design?
    My favorite wrappers are the Hannah and Lulu citrus wrappers. I love the hot pink and orange combo. It just screams outdoor summer party.
    cupcake-baker-nancy-wrappers-bella
  8. Anything else you’d like to add?
    I have purchased several new muffin tins and ended up not using them. I just didn’t like the way they baked the cupcakes. I continue to use the old tins that belonged to my mom. There’s alot of love in those tins, and that’s why my cupcakes are so good.Also as far as a favorite frosting recipe, people love my chocolate buttercream. My secret ingredient is Hershey’s special dark chocolate ice cream topping. Makes it very fudgey and creamy. I often add a bit of cinnamon and a touch of cayenne to the frosting as well. As for a recipe, I’d be glad to share but I don’t measure anything. I just go by when it looks right.

Thanks again for your great products and for inviting me to be a guest on your blog!
Nancy Schaub

Cupcake Baker Interview: Rose Bakes

March 27th, 2013 by admin

We have a great cupcake baker interview to share with you today. Here name is Rose of Rose Bakes. She has a fun story of how she got her start, her very fun decorating style and more. We hope you enjoy!

Tell us a little bit about your bakery and how you got your start?
I have had a love for baking for as long as I can remember.  At the age of 13, I asked for a cake decorating kit for Christmas and from then on, I did cakes for family.  However, it wasn’t until 2010 when my brother asked me to do his wedding cake that my business really took off!  I initially refused – having never done a wedding cake I was terrified.  But after lots of begging (and warning him!), I agreed.  After posting those pictures on Facebook…. my orders started rolling in and multiplying and I never looked back!

What was your first childhood memory involving cupcakes?
I honestly can’t drum up a single childhood memory regarding cupcakes!  My Mama was not ever a baker and I don’t ever remember eating cupcakes!  However, I do remember the first cake I ever baked and decorated after getting my decorating kit.  Looking back on it now, it was pitiful, but I knew from that day on that I wanted to bake cakes for people!

What is your top 3 best selling cupcakes?
My most popular sellers for decorations would have to be my crawfish cupcakes and my farm animal cupcakes.  My most popular flavors would be Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough cupcakes or Italian Cream Cheese Cupcakes.  Oops… that’s four!
http://rosebakes.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Crawfish-Cupcakes-from-Side.jpg#comment-8761

What is your favorite cupcake flavor?
My favorite is the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes!!   It’s the best of both worlds with cookie dough and frosting!

Is there an innovation you’d like to see made to the cupcake that would improve it for you?
I’m not sure if this is an improvement on a cupcake so much as an improvement on a way to package them!  I have tried so many different types of boxes/inserts and I’ve yet to find any that I just love!  OH – and a way to safely ship them… that would be a dream invention!!

What’s the most memorable cupcake event you’ve done?
That would have to be my first cake/cupcake wedding tower display.  I was skeptical that a cupcake display could be as appealing as a wedding cake, but after getting it all finished and set up, I was in love with the look and I often try to “sell” that look to customers these days!

Just for fun; what is your favorite Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wrapper design?
I guess it’s because I’m sort of a sucker for anything pink, I love your pink striped cupcake wrappers (they remind me of my site design) and the Lu-Lu Pink and Black ones!!

Pink & White Striped Cupcake Wrapper

Anything else you’d like to add?
When I first started my business, I was all about cake, cake, cake.  Then last year I was interviewed for a local magazine and they wanted to talk cupcakes.  I did some Easter designs for their article and I really started to rethink cupcakes and decided to make the an important part of my business as well.   As cupcakes have become more and more popular, I’ve really grown to love a great cupcake design and display!  They’re so much fun and there are so many possibilities out there!

Thank you for this opportunity to share via this cupcake baker interview.  I have a few cake/cupcake displays here on my blog if you’d like to scroll through them and in my gallery you can see all of my cupcakes in one spot.

Best, Rose

We hope you enjoyed today’s Cupcake Baker Interview with Rose Bakes. We also suggest reading her “About” section on her site. She has 101 things more you can learn about her. Fun read!

Thanks again Rose for participating in our Cupcake Baker Interview!
