Puces Pop Loves Clever Cupcakes!

We had the honour of being chosen to participate in our second Puces Pop: POP Montreal’s DO-IT-YOURSELF Festival and Arts & Crafts Fair, this past weekend. Once again it was a blast selling cupcakes while surrounded by so many awesome crafters!

Based on our sales at the fair in the spring we baked 26 dozen cupcakes for the first day. Unfortunately we underestimated the demand and sold out 3 hours early! Wanting to avoid any possible cupcake disappointment we baked 40 dozen cupcakes for second day, but alas it was not enough. The cupcake word had spread and once again we sold out 3 hours early!

In case you missed out here are the cupcake flavours we offered:
  • Vegan chocolate cupcakes with vegan chocolate ganache and fleur de sel
  • Coconut cupcakes with coconut buttercream
  • Chocolate cupcakes with fresh mint infused chocolate buttercream
  • Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting
  • Carrot cupcakes with old fashion boiled icing
  • Vanilla cupcakes with lavender scented vanilla buttercream
  • Decadent Brownie Cupcakes
  • Chocolate cupcakes with espresso buttercream.
  • Apple cinnamon cupcakes with apple cider buttercream
  • Lemon cupcakes with lemon buttercream
Besides all the great artisans with their stunning wares, and the delicious homemade Ukranian food which is apparently available every year, this time there was also a Yahoo! Quebec sponsored photobooth run by Bunch!.

All in all a great weekend! Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hi. Without our loyal costumers we could never have sold all 66 dozen cupcakes. Looking forward to the next Puces Pop already!

Yummy! You missed a flavour though: chocolate cupcake with espresso icing.

Girl! I need to steal the vegan recipes from you. Now that I'm vegan, food has become less fun sometimes and ganache sounds like the best remedy. Rae Rae XO
