some sweets for a daily candy launch party

July 9, 2008 |  Category:   the biz


Not to take anything away from Kumquat Cupcakery because Keavy is the undisputed queen of the mini cupcakes here in NY, but we made these lavender minis with lemon buttercream and candied violets for a Daily Candy book launch party yesterday, along with some brownies, butterscotch bar cookies and other goodies. Mark’s been baking more cupcakes for events after taking a break from them for awhile.

And I’m kicking myself for not taking any photos of M at the party (we only stayed a little while during set up), because she just blended her sassy own self in with the lovely Daily Candy editors and staff in her chic new dress. There were jars of candy everywhere and it seemed like every time we turned around, someone was offering her candy. Love how she can just walk up to anyone and strike a conversation, even if it’s only 4 year old banter (can you imagine if someone random walked up to you and said “I’m eating purple gum”?). It did give us a little preview of the future, however, as we imagined she could be one of those young women one day, dressed for a party in heels, and probably still eating candy.

    That all looks scrumptious, and I love the description about Mia. I’m sure she charmed those editors and will be featured on Daily Candy herself for something when she grows up. (:
