My new Name!

Well, I decided not to change the name completely as I couldn't think of anything that I loved and wanted to make a change quick as my FB name is Amy's Cupcakes - Puerto Rico. It was becoming confusing so I decided to go with: Amy's Chicagoland Cupcakes.
Please visit my new FB page and "like" me.

Here's a few holiday pictures.

I was inspired today and tried a filling for my minis. Had to make Lemon cupcakes and the filling is so good that I had to find a way to use it. Thought of brushing the filling on top of the cupcake but under the frosting. Just not enough of the lemony goodness! So I went ahead and filled them, as I would a regular cupcake. And it worked! A little bit of filling for a little cupcake. They are just as good as the regular size! Will now add minis with fillings to my menu. I can't do fresh fruit fillings but can do anything that is like a sauce (lemon, lime, caramel, ganache, etc...)

Also, today, I made cupcakes for the teachers: Lemon, Chocolate Brownie and Cookies and Cream.

So, I'm thinking about changing my business name. Any suggestions? My problem is that is already taken so I want a name that has an open website. I could keep Amy's Cupcakes and add Chicago or Chicagoland or go with something completely different. Would love to hear suggestions! I'm offering 1 dozen cupcakes to the person whose name I choose (sorry, only a local offer - will send a different dessert to an out of state winner).

New Flavors

I've created a new flavor: Caramel Apple! Originally, I experimented with Butterscotch. I wasn't thrilled with the results, didn't have time to fix the butterscotch so I mixed a few things and came up with something new. I took a Vanilla cupcake, filled it with some cooked apples (seasoned for apple pie) and caramel. Then, Vanilla frosting on top, along with an apple slice and some caramel drizzle and Voila!

Having eaten the last one tonight, I'd say I'm happy with them :)

Also, I recently had an order for Pineapple cupcakes so I dried some fresh pineapple slices as the garnish. Leaving enough leftovers for dried pineapple treats to snack on!
