Welcome to Cupcake Addiction's first ever blog, which coincides with the launch of our all new website, online store and YouTube channel.
It's been a hectic time of change for us here at Cupcake Central, withYouTube tutorials being rolled out each week, pictures and data being collected to populate our lovely new website, and of course a crash course in the world of blogging. Team all this with a demanding 5 month old and regular market cupcake sales, as well as the fact that we are smack bang in the middle of wedding season, and you are looking at a very busy bee!
Some information for those of you who haven't heard of Cupcake Addiction. We are based on the Gold Coast, Qld, Australia and have a regular stall every Wednesday and Friday evening from 5:30pm-10:00pm at the Surfers Paradise night markets (Cavill Avenue, Surfers Paradise). A truly stunning venue to go to work each week, with the beach right behind us and the lights of Surfers Paradise stretched out in front.
As well as delicious cupcakes, full sized cakes and wedding cakes, we also supply a great range of cupcake and lolly buffet packaging, including single cupcake boxes, printed cupcake boxes and multi cupcake boxes. We have recently launched our YouTube channel, MyCupcakeAddiction which shows you at home how to make a range of beautiful cupcakes, perfect buttercream frosting and more.
On my worktable this week are some cute safari animals and a bunch of sugar flowers for an upcoming wedding cake (peonies to be precise). Also in the works this week, frangipani cupcakes, a giant safari themed cupcake with some matching cupcakes and of course my regular range of yummy cupcakes heading out to the markets.
This weeks YouTube tutorial will be truly my most favourite to date - the Giant Cookie Monster Cupcake! Shown here with some of his regular sized friends, the Giant Cookie Monster cupcake can be purchased via our online store, or you can try your hand at making him at home by following our Giant Cupcake Basics series on YouTube, and then our Giant Cookie Monster cupcake tutorials.
Each week I will post pictures of the weeks cakes, as well as information and updates on what's going on in the world of cupcakes & cake decorating. I aim to show you what I can via our YouTube channel, so you at home can indulge your inner cake decorator and make beautiful creations for your friends and family, or perhaps even start your own cake business!
Enjoy our new website & YouTube tutorials, and feel free to pass us on to your friends if you think they'd be interested :)
