Behind the Scenes @ Cupcake Espresso

Hi All! I've been so busy the past few months since opening and have been neglecting the poor old blog. Our new website is up and running and it has a link to the blog. I jumped on the other day and couldn't believe the difference in our cupcakes since my last post so it is definitely time to update! The cupcakes have evolved sooo much since our first real experiment. We are constantly updating the look and perfecting the taste so the blog has to follow suit!

We have just purchased a brand new you beaut wizz bang oven that can cook about four times the amount we are cooking now! At the moment we are pretty much cooking, decorating and sleeping with the exception of a take away meal here and there. Hopefully our new oven will help us out or it will just mean we will take on even more! Either way it has to be better!

We also have a HUGE mixer on the way! Can't wait for its much anticipated arrival. The mixer and the oven will certainly mean we will have more time to play and experiment with new and exciting flavours. But that doesn't mean we aren't already! We came up with "Apple Pie" today. Its a vanilla cupcake with an apple pie centre, vanilla buttercream with a sweet pastry top! We were feeling a little nostalgic!

 The baked pastry scallops
The yummy apple filling, with a hint of cinnamon!

Hollowing out the centres...

Filling with the mixture

Vanilla Bean Buttercream mmmm

Pastry tops

Dusting with powdered sugar


I've taken lots of photos of the process behind filling the cabinet - when it comes to decorating anyway. So enjoy! x

Hazelnut Chocolate

Peanut Butter Chocolate

Beating up to the perfect consistency

Piping time

Turkish Delight... Oh what a delight!

My fave! Peppermint Chocolate. A mint slice in a cupcake, but better!

Cookies & Cream... Everyone's Fave!

Or is Salted Caramel everyone's fave?

Turkish Delight and Espresso

Bubblegum and Musk Stick! A fave of kids and adults alike!
