From Our Editors
From within her home kitchen, the baker and owner of Little Bird Cupcakes crafts sweets by the dozen. In her Johnny Apple cake, she creates a spice-cake batter from granny-smith apples and toasted pecans, then tops the moist cake with a vanilla-buttercream frosting and crumbled bits of maple bacon. For those looking for frosting squished in between cakes, she recommends her whoopie pies, which can be made from almost any of her specialty cupcake flavors. She makes her cupcakes in classic flavors, from the tart lemon drop to the almond topped with chocolate buttercream and a sprinkling of almonds. And for her specialty cupcakes, she combines more unique flavors, such as banana-pudding cupcakes with Nilla wafer crumbles.
