It’s all about presentation

29 Sep

Last week I was in charge of teatime in the NYC office. I’ve really wanted a cupcake tree for awhile, so I decided to use this as an occasion to buy one and raise the bar on teatime snack presentations.

Notice the apple cider and real decorative gourds!

For the cupcakes themselves I just followed basic recipes for chocolate and vanilla, but I made this salted caramel frosting to make it a little more interesting. And I added candy corn to make it a little more plastic-y autumnal.

Doesn't it kind of look like a theme park ride?

    In this case, it was about presentation AND deliciousness.

    Wow. I want to eat the gourds and the flowers too.
