For our celebration to light the town trees, I had these cupcakes made. I know what you're thinking - why didn't I do it myself!? Well, there just wasn't enough time in the day.
The "edible wafer" was made by scanning in a photo and printing it out onto a rice paper transfer. It was slightly sweet, but mostly neutral in flavor - so it goes with anything. The buttercream icing was pure creamery fresh butter that satisfied every taste bud. The vanilla cake was light and moist with a delicate crumb that served more as a delivery system for the frosting than as a cake.
The transfers were made by one bakery - the cupcakes by another. It was just one more thing that showed how much our little town was pulling together to do the tree lighting.
You just have to love that!
Mmmmmm - cupcakes!
