A quick batch of cupcakes for the preschool bake sale today. The cupcake is a golden vanilla that I dressed up with a bit of almond, butter, and vanilla extract. A silky, salted caramel buttercream swirl topped off each cake, with a sprinkle of red sugar and a disco dusted fondant heart. Pretty parchment baking cups help make each cupcake a perfect little valentine.
Lorie Anderson has more than 20 years experience decorating and baking fanciful desserts. Learning decorating from her mother, at age 7 she did her first party cake (with purple star flowers and a shell border) for her standard poodle’s birthday bash. Through the years the guests became more sophisticated and the cakes more decadent.
Lorie developed her craft through classes and workshops and has worked in the restaurant and private kitchen as a creative outlet counter to a career in marketing and public relations. After the birth of their two children and raising her boys to always believe in following their dreams, she decided to do the same and open a cake design studio.
