I started my blog to share with others my passion for creating in the kitchen. I also started it out of hopes of finding a community of like-minded cooks and bakers. And I think I found *just* that in Food Bloggers in NYC, a group run by Mallory of Total Noms.
Coursehorse and top cupcake shop Butter Lane teamed up to invite Food Bloggers to a bloggers-only cupcake decorating class. Just having written a post all about cupcakes, where I extolled the joys to be had in such a teensy baked creation, I thought the timing couldn't be better. On a recent Tuesday evening, I joined nine other bloggers at Butter Lane to learn all there is to know about making the perfect cupcake. Guiding us through the 2-hour class was our bright, cheerful instructor Olivia.
|tip on making batter: mix on very low speed, until just combined|
|another great tip: use an ice cream scooper to scoop up cake batter|
|a custom topping: vanilla frosting with raspberry puree|
|Olivia demonstrating how to frost a cupcake the Butter Lane-way: tap, tap, turn!|
|the treat at the end of the evening: my very own box of cupcakes to take home!|
It was such a fun evening, meeting and baking with fellow food bloggers.
Thank you, Butter Lane, CourseHorse, Mallory, Olivia, and Kelly and Miachel!
