The Beginning – Part 2: ‘Tis the Cookout Season

30 Jul

My mom went to a cookout a few weeks after the birthday celebration and asked if I would make some cupcakes for her to take.  I didn’t just want to replicate the chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, so I set out to find something unique for summer.

I found a peach cupcake with brown sugar frosting from Smitten Kitchen and it was settled.

The delicate cake, mixed with chunks of fresh peaches and topped with a just sweet enough buttercream was perfect for a summer cookout.  It was a huge hit, especially with the adults.  I didn’t know it at the time, but, with a few tweaks, my first seasonal flavor was born.

Testing the flavors and tweaking the frosting for this summer treat confirmed my ability to develop sweet flavors…
