Red Scooter Bakery
Shannon Mullins vividly recalls the rare occasions when her parents let her order a shirley temple with dinner, as well as rejoicing in their syrupy sweetness. The inveterate baker now pays homage to her favorite childhood treat with her signature shirley temple cupcake, a lemon-lime cake garnished with tufts of grenadine frosting and a maraschino cherry. Her other cupcakes may inspire similar nostalgia for childhood treats: think snickerdoodle cake with honey-cinnamon frosting or chocolate cake with Oreos.
Though her treats may appear simple, Ms. Mullins chooses her ingredients carefully. She whips all her buttercream and cream-cheese frostings from scratch and peruses the Scottsdale farmers market weekly for fresh produce in lieu of using artificial flavors. In addition to cupcakes, she also sells fresh-fruit tarts, gluten-free brownies, and cream puffs.
