Friday, November 26, 2010 Cupcake Review & Giveaway

I was contacted by the owner of earthandsugar, Janderyn Makris to sample several different flavors of her organic cupcakes. Yesterday, Janderyn delivered 12 small cupcakes and six large cupcakes to my home. That's right... delivered!

The flavors she brought for me to taste were as follows:

Lemon-lemon cake with lemon butter cream infused with organic lemon zest
Chocolate-chocolate cake with milk chocolate butter cream
Vanilla-Madagascar bourbon vanilla cake with vanilla butter cream
Red Velvet-red velvet cake with vanilla cream cheese frosting
Chocolate Peppermint-chocolate cake with vanilla peppermint butter cream topped with crushed organic candy cane
Pumpkin-pumpkin cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting

Janderyn sat down with me for a Q & A and I was able to learn a lot about her and earthandsugar.

Janderyn started earthandsugar in August of 2009, when she decided to put Political Consulting on the back burner. Janderyn's taste for confection developed as a child when her Chilean Nana made impeccable pastries for breakfasts and delectable desserts for special occasions.

earthandsugar is based out of Boynton Beach, FL. They are a green business, using eco-friendly packing & organic ingredients, and support local farmers. They deliver to the entire Palm Beach County for free... yep, FREE! They have a very extensive menu including several scrumptious cupcake flavors, cookies, muffins, and pies (seasonal); and for people outside of Palm Beach County ([anywhere in the US]and within PB County also)- Cupcakes in a Jar! 

earthandsugar's cupcakes are simple, but beautiful; and ALL taste amazingly delicious! However, my three favorites (out of the ones I sampled) were the Lemon because of the piquant bite; the creamy, savory Pumpkin; and the Chocolate Peppermint, because of the nice surprise the peppermint adds to it. The Chocolate Peppermint is actually something that I would never have ordered on my own, but I am glad that she brought it; because it was divine!

Growing and Going

This past week, Roman has begun clapping; he does it when we tell him, "Clap your hands." He also pats his little hands on his legs.  It's super cute! He's become very mobile, crawling very quickly around the house and pulling up on the furniture. He's very curious about things and is learning "No," and comes when I tell him, "Come here." I am very proud of my ever growing, ever changing not-so-little guy!
