Cupcakes are great! They delight both the young and old and can be eaten at any time. One of the factors that make cupcakes so great is that they’re so portable and easy to share. Unlike normal cakes where you need a knife to be able to share with friends or colleagues, with cupcakes you can buy everybody one or two and easily spread the goodness.
If you are a cupcake fanatic, you probably are loyal to the beaker or shop where you first had your delicious bite. While cupcakes are easily available from cafes to bakeries and convenient stores, finding a bakery that makes the best cupcakes you’ve ever had is like discovering a gold mine. You will keep coming from more every day.
Before making your first purchase, you might want to ask your baker a few questions.
Are cupcakes freshly made?
While cupcakes sell easily, you want to confirm that you’re buying a freshly baked cupcake. There’s nothing wrong with that cupcake made a day earlier as long as it’s well preserved. However, do always confirm that you’re buying a fresh cupcake. cupcakes that have been preserved for several days are lacking in taste compared to freshly baked cupcakes
What ingredients are in the cupcakes?
Flour, sugar, milk, and eggs are some of the common ingredients used to bake cupcakes. Sometimes though, you can have additional ingredients such as additives, flavors, fruits or nuts. If you have food allergies, you want to confirm that all the ingredients used are safe especially for you. Similarly, if you have any dietary restrictions you want to be sure you’re not ingesting something you shouldn’t. By confirming these facts from your baker, you can leave them personal notes on how to prepare your cupcakes especially if you are a regular buyer.
Does your beaker do custom orders?
Sometimes the flavor you’re craving may not be readily available. Hence, you’ll be required to put in a custom order with your baker. Most bakers do bake custom cupcakes on order but others only sell their signature cupcake flavors. By confirming this from your baker, you are preparing yourself for future orders should you need to put in custom requests.
Do they deliver?
Shopping has been made convenient by providing online shopping and order systems. The same applies to cupcakes. All established bakers will have an online store through their websites where you can place your cupcake orders. However, some will deliver at an additional fee, others will send a delivery service, while others do not do delivery at all. It is important to confirm these details so that you are better prepared when placing online orders.
