This is not my first post on cupcakes and I doubt it is my last. Already a year ago my opinion was that the cupcake craze is over. Wrong I am.
As a matter of fact, today I am going to check out BLISS, a bakery that focuses on those cupcakes in Calgary's Chinatown. It's a regular bakery, not gluten free. But I am curious, as they got a lot of comments on Chowhound.
On Wednesday Victoria made a small batch of gluten free cupcakes for a special order and there were a few left. So I decided to put a small note on Facebook (Yes, I hijacked GF Patisserie's Facebook page) since many of GF Patisserie's customers are on there. Just to make sure people know that there are some cupcakes.
Wow. The power of Facebook. Victoria got so many emails and phone calls, she had to make quite a few more batches to just keep up with the requests. This just shows how much I know about trends.... what about my poppy seed cake? Why did THAT never take off the way cupcakes did? I was very sure of it being the next thing. THREE YEARS AGO.
Anyway, I am not going to wax about the quality of GF Patisserie's cupcakes, those of you who already tried some, can attest that they are brilliant. For sure GF Patisserie has the nicest wrappers, imported from Italy.
Personally, no problem if there are not any, I can live without them, but when Victoria brings home a few of the ones with chocolate ganache, I eat them all.
As a small side note, yes the last images was taken today, June 6th, 2009. We woke up to snow on the ground.
Victoria is adamant it is a sign for us to open up a GF B&B in the south of France. So I told her I will poll you:
Q.: Will you follow us to the south of France, and stay at our Bed & Breakfast, where it's all gluten free, all the time?
