Can you tell that I love cupcakes? They have been my newest passion this last year. With all of the different kinds you can make the possibilities are really endless.
You see, I love coming up with business ideas. For as long as I can remember entrepreneurial ideas have hit me over the head and taken me on crazy rides. 2008 was the year of homemade marshmallows. I loved learning how to make marshmallows and the fact that the sad versions in a bag that they sell in stores do not come close to the real thing caught my imagination. I came up with new flavors and brought them to work for coworkers to try and evaluate. The fact that most people didn't even know you could make them was all the more fun. Unfortunately they don't have the longest shelf life and summer in Georgia makes it even worse.
2009 brought a new idea...cupcakes. A friend of mine already baked as a side business and she is always trying new things. With inspiration from her as well as looking at various websites and businesses online my brain started going in overdrive again. Of course this meant that any type of celebration I was invited to I would bring cupcakes. This past weekend was a joint birthday party for both my husband and my sister-in-law and she requested cupcakes. Not just any cupcakes though. She wanted these:
