Summer Flavors

These 2 cupcake flavors both have a hint of lime in common...
The first one is a blueberry vodka lime cupcake topped with a sugared blueberry on top. The cupcake itself has blueberries throughout and the frosting combines all 3 flavors together. Vodka can also be omitted if desired. 

This next cupcake is a banana coconut lime cupcake, topped with a maraschino cherry. Tons of coconut in the frosting make it full of flavor and texture!
I'm not a huge banana fan, but this combo seemed to work great with the coconut and fresh lime!

The War of the Cakes in Cups.....

AKA Cupcake Wars! I applied with my friend/assistant Kristen.
We submitted our video last week, and we are really keeping our fingers crossed that we get on the show!
Then I can open a storefront and you can come visit me!

Limoncello Lemon Cupcakes!

These are the perfect summer treat, especially if you are a lemon and limoncello fan. For those of you that don't know what limoncello is, it is a lemon liquor from southern Italy. It is amazing and these cupcakes are soaked in it!
These particular ones were gluten-free, but I promise, you won't know the difference!

These are lemon cupcakes, topped with lemon/lemon zest infused buttercream topped with a thin slice of strawberry for an added touch. Did I mention soaked in limoncello?

Exciting Update!

Things have been busy here at Luiza's Cupcakes, so I'm going to fill you in on what's been going on.

Recently on a bike ride, me and friend stopped in a local natural food market and new coffee shop in town. I told them of my GF cupcakes and they seemed interested. All I needed was my kitchen. Through the market, I found a gluten-free kitchen to work in and am in the application process of getting my food processors license for WA state. I dropped off some samples, and now waiting to hear back. Lord willing, you will see my cupcakes and pastries in stores nearby. I will keep you updated!

As for desserts, I have a few I will be posting this week, so stay tuned, and stay sweet! :)
