Christa, we absolutely love Couture Cupcake Boutique, we're practically addicted! How did you get into the cupcake business?
Since I was a child, baking has been a passion of mine (making beautiful, edible works of art). While I was on maternity leave with my first child, I decided to pursue my passion for making custom edible creations. Couture Cupcake Boutique was established in February 2010. Cupcakes appealed to me because of the versatility they offer; different flavours, styles and themes in each cupcake can be incorporated for any event.
Besides the flavours listed on your website, are any new flavours and/or designs in the works for 2011?
We are working on a Prince & Princess cupcake to be available in the new year with kid-friendly ingredients (also free of artificial flavours). We are also launching the Lola Pupcake this month which is a dog-friendly cupcake for your favourite pup.
What kind of cupcake would you recommend to someone planning a winter themed wedding?
The Marilyn cupcake a rich red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting, is elegant and the vibrant red colour is sure to catch every one's attention at a chic winter wedding.
What is the most popular cupcake at Couture Cupcake Boutique?
The Marilyn cupcake is our most popular. Second in line is Strawberries & Champagne, closely followed by Autumn Love.
If you could be any flavour of cupcake, what would you be?
If I could be any cupcake I would choose to be the Amaretto Sour because that is my favourite cocktail!
