For those of you who do not know, I work full time, am going back to school for business, and bake Scrumptious cupcakes on the weekend. Well, when I get an opportunity to combine and simplify anything in my life I feel like a kid on Christmas Morning! So when I found out I had to give a seven minute presentation for my People Skills class on the topic of my choice. Here is what my thought process was...."HOT DOG!!!!! I get to talk about Mission Scrumptious for seven minutes, explain the 'Mission,' drum up some business, and finally make an A in one of my classes!" (My teacher's test are really tricky!)
Since this presentation was at 10:30ish in the morning. This time slot meant my audience breakfast was gone and they would probably be at least mentally ready for a nap. The fact that we had a freak cold snap and it actually was hailing on my way to class did not help the matter any. All I wanted to do was crawl up in my nice warm bed and listen to the rain, all while Thanking the Good Lord that I was not outside. But none the less that was not the case and I marched on like a good soldier.
Anyway, I made my dark chocolate mocha cupcake with an espresso buttercream. (This cupcake tastes like Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream) Trust me with all the espresso and sugar in those cupcakes they were definitely awake now! Needless to say, all went well, I drummed up some clientele, got a possible investor and finally got my A!
You can tell why these are my hubby's favorite cupcakes so far.
*Warning if you ever eat this cupcake..you are now helpless to the temptation of even a whiff of this wonderful coffee shop smell*
