Country CupCakes March Newsletter

February ended with a bang! Country CupCakes baked over 200 cupcakes!

A little history:
During the month of February we had some birthday parties, Valentine events, and a wedding tasting to bake for. We are working on promoting the business, and excited for what is to come in 2011.

What sets us apart:
Our homemade vanilla is ready to use, and I already received 15 more Madagascar vanilla beans to start a new bottle of vanilla extract. We experimented with making our own marzipan to create a garden theme cupcake display. We continue to use as many fresh ingredients as we can. We make trips to Roots Market in Lancaster to get some of our ingredients to ensure freshness. We also made two new fillings this month; a fresh raspberry filling and a strawberry filling,

Mojito cupcake with a raspberry-lime cream cheese icing
