this past weekend i did the holiday at the beach market in rocky river. i will be there again possibly this weekend, but definitely the few days leading up until christmas. this weekend i will be selling my cupcakes out of michael's studio at the lake erie screw factory for the last minute market. please come visit us! anyways this past weekend i had a great time at the market and met a lot of really fun people. i made peppermint tea cupcakes, almond blackberry cupcakes, marbled lavender cupcakes, blueberry & raspberry ricotta almond cupcakes, eggnog latte cupcakes and chocolate orange cupcakes. the eggnog latte cupcake frosting is honestly the best frosting i have made to date. i was eating the leftovers by the spoonful! here are some pictures of my cupcakes:
i had made a different peppermint cupcake the weekend before, but found the peppermint flavor to be a little too intense and toned it down for this past weekend's version.
i used the lavender leaves i got from cathy's baby shower to make these cupcakes!
almost the end of the summer frozen blackberries! sad.
i do however still have a good amount of frozen raspberries leftover :) look forward to some of them appearing in the next couple weeks!
the eggnog frosting i was raving about! so delicious!!!
and the simple and beautiful chocolate orange cupcake!
so i hope to see you at the last minute market or at the holiday at the beach market! mention you follow by blog and i'll happily give you a little something extra ;) the flavors i am hoping for this weekend are chesnut cupcakes, hot chocolate & lemon curd something. i am debating a few recipes with lemon curd filling involved and i just can't decide which one i want to make. i might also delay the hot chocolate cupcake and swap it for a chocolate chai. really, it all depends on what i can find at the store and what i feel like making! i will also be making some puppycakes for stella. i took care of stella during the day while katie (her mama) was workin the long hours at the clinic and that little sneak is going to be one soon!
