Fun Playing With Cupcakes!

On April 20, 2008, bloggers Maybelles Parents issued the challenge - the first ever Cleveland Cupcake Project. Unfortunately, I've been so rushed lately that I was only able to get to my favorite local cupcakes once before the June 1 deadline - so here goes my entry!

I blogged about my favorite local bakery-cafe here - Appetite, located at 5143 Mayfield Road, Lyndhurst, Ohio, 44124, 440-461-8000. I am not a big consumer of sweets, and I almost never eat cupcakes. Recently, however, Chef Bennett Davis (the pastry chef) had put out some cupcake samples. I took a taste, and I was hooked. He doesn't make them every day, but I told him that I'd love to photograph some cupcakes for this contest, since I enjoy them so much.

On this day, there was a choice of white or chocolate cake, and green icing.

Cut open views:

I love both flavors - the consistency of the cake is "melt in your mouth", and the frosting is perfect, with a little heft and an lot of creaminess. The creaminess contrasts with the slight "crunch" from the sugar crystals. Good luck, Appetite!
