Hee lieve lezers!

Het is hier een poosje heel stil geweest, maar ik ben er weer! :) Na een stage in München voor mijn master ben ik weer terug in ons fijne landje en ben gelijk al weer lekker aan het bakken geweest. Ik heb honderden mini cupcakes gemaakt voor een girlsnight van de kerk, gezellige koekjes gedecoreerd met vriendinnen en cupcakes gedecoreerd in een winterwonderland- en kerstthema voor een workshop in december. Binnenkort komen over deze bakavontuurtjes een paar blogposts online.

De winter cupcake workshop, waar je onderandere de bovenstaande cupcakes leert maken, zal ik 17 december geven in het atelier van Mevrouw Baktaart. Hij is HIERte boeken!

Stay tuned ;)

    I work at Coldstone and make these all the time. We have to order the chocolate cups from some relaly far away fancy place, so our prices might actually go up soon to eleven dollars. We put everything together ourselves in the store… the cake, fudge, scoop of ice cream, we frost them, and package them. That can explain why there’s differences in the amount of cake; we eyeball on how much to put in. We’re only supposed to put an inch of cake so there’s room for the scoop of ice cream without it overflowing the cup, it makes it hard to frost when it’s so big. The more the ice cream overflows the cup, the more frosting needed to cover it, which makes them look big and weird and have too much frosting. Also, at least in my store (in Illinois), we customize the cupcake if someone asks us to. Say, if they want mint ice cream with chocolate cake, white frosting with a chocolate heart on top. We can sell them individually (for the price of a like it ice cream) by taking one out of the container or making one on the spot, but we prefer not to do that because it gets tedious with all the missing cupcakes needed to make a pack and it does take a few minutes to make on depending on what kind. But some Coldstones are different. Our bosses just relaly want us to always have a lot of each kind in the store. We have variety packs of 2 of each kind. Other stores barely bother. As for the “cake” issue, I think Coldstone is mostly trying to highlight the ice cream. Our cake is just a mix-in, its not supposed to be special. What makes the cupcakes special is the ice cream. That’s why its in there, and not so much cake.And Becky, the LABEL on the top of the cupcake container had SWEET CREAM colored in, letting you know it was just sweet cream cupcakes in the container. At least, that’s what I saw in the picture. A variety pack would have each circle colored in.I personally like them. I didn’t have trouble eating one, probably b/c I had left it in the freezer to harden and then cut it in half (was sharing it with my boyfriend) and ate it. Mine was sweet cream with oreos mixed in and yellow cake. My favorite part was actually the shell. The dark chocolate was relaly good. It’s just a creative way to eat the ice cream, a small version of an ice cream cake.
