Cupcakes, Cupcakes, and More Cupcakes

Here's what you missed while I was away at school: a TON of cupcakes--500 to be exact. The Robert H. Smith School of Business at UMD hosts an event called Terp Marketplace through the Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship. Aspiring new en-TERP-preneurs sell their stuff for students and faculty. My first try, I sold out in 3 hours--my second try, I sold out in less than two. I guess College Park just really has latched on to the cupcake craze. I'm uploading all the photos so you don't miss out on all the flavors!

Dirt Cup: Oreo Cupcakes filled with chocolate pudding
Pink Lemonade: pink lemonade Kool-Aid flavor
Fear The Turtle Vanilla Cupcakes
Cookie Dough: chocolate chip cookie yellow cake w/ brown sugar icing
Blueberry: Real blueberries topped with blueberry PopTart
S'more: chocolate cake w/ graham cracker crust & marshmallow icing

To My Loyal Followers...

I thought I would update all 179 of you on the current goings-on in my life. I have made a few cakes over the past year (not enough), but I DID start a cupcake delivery service at the University of Maryland for students, parents, faculty, and fans. It's launching in the fall and being run out of the College Park Volunteer Fire Department. So while I haven't been doing cake creations, I've made 500 cupcakes this year in a ton of flavors, and that's been pretty exciting!

But this summer, it's back to business for Mmmeliacakes, so get those orders in! I'd love to hear from you. I especially want to try out new and crazier cake designs, so be sure to recommend me to everyone you know--it'd be a shame to go back to school and not have made a plethora of cakes!
