For this order, I highly recommended the Valrhona Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Swiss Meringue Chocolate Buttercream Frosting and the Oreo Cream Cheese Cupcakes, both petite sizes. I thought these 2 flavours complement each other really well, each has its distinct flavour yet not too overwhelming for pairing. There are 2 other flavours that I'd like to recommend as well - Carrot, Walnut & Orange Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting and Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Buttercream Frosting. But these 2 flavours have strong taste and I think may be better-off on their own.
I'm totally into petite size cupcakes these days. This way, it seems less sinful =p Haha, how deceptive, I forgot about second helpings. Ok, nicely put, more flavours can be savoured :D
My usual white box packaging with colour labels.
One gripe though, I can't seem to find affordable broad-base paper bags around. Really hate to settle for those fugly looking plastic bags. Probably have to consider handmade paper bags one of these days.
During the process of preparing ingredients and baking the cupcakes, I suddenly have this idea of making my own mini contact cards as giveaways. The cards could serve as a thank you card and would be useful as a bookmark or decor piece (in office cubicles) and with contact info should anyone be keen to place orders. Had thought of printing namecards before... but semi handmade cards would probably add more personal touch.
Moreover, I have ready materials - scrap paper stock, brads, eyelets etc from my card making hobby. I'm all set to go!
So here they are. Mini contact cards with prints of some of my favourite cakes :) Very easy and fuss free to make.
Hope these cards can cheer people up as well. Although the photos are not professionally taken nor printed, I believe the personal touch and thought that goes into each and every piece counts.
