Another article about cupcakes! This article specifically mentions MINI cupcakes. Heyoo! Mini cupcakes takin' over the world!
okay okay....so they mention them as being set on the back burner....eh. I honestly skimmed over that part, and am kinda flattered that mini cupcakes have become so big that they are now passe. I don't want to take ALL the credit for the mini cupcake movement, but gosh darn it, I'm going to take some of it. I remember when I switched to making minis way back when in the summer of 2007, I thought it was such a novel idea. "Mini cupcakes?!? How adoooorable!" I had never heard of someone making an online cupcakes store, let alone one that was entirely mini. Then 2008 rolled around and mini cupcakes were popping up everywhere: baked by Mellisa, Crumbs, Nine Cakes. I did feel slight twinges of animosity, but I also felt kinda flattered....they were copying me.....that's kinda cool. I get nostalgic remembering back to my first blog post. Sitting on the end of my bed in my tiny brooklyn apartment in my pj's, writing about the cupcakes I would be bringing to the Artists & Flea Market. Hoping I could pull a fast one on people and actually lead them to believe I had my own business. I had no clue how fast it would spiral into an actual business....let alone one that is "so last year."
Anyway, being on the back burner with burgers.....not too shabby.
Here it is....my first blog post....

I'm excited to finally introduce the Kumquat Blogspot! Even though i'm aware of the fact that my baking skills slightly surpass my writing skills, I'll try my darndest to keep all you sugar fiends up to date on the latest Kumquat creations.
First big exciting news is that Kumquat Cupcakery is taking to the streets of Williamsburg Brooklyn this sunday, at the Artists & Fleas Market, to win over the hearts of all brooklynites one delicious mini cupcake at a time!
Here's a sneak peak at tomorrow's menu:
-Strawberry Cupcakes with a Cream Cheese Frosting
-Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting
-White Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting
-Chocolate Coffee Cupcakes with Chocolate Caramel Frosting
I have to admit, with that line up in mind I couldn't wait to start baking so I did a little test round just for myself (and a couple of the curious kids who live in my building) yesterday. Not only did they end up being one of the most adorable cupcake line ups i've ever made, but they were AWESOME tasting. I skipped on dinner, ate one of each, and didn't feel guilty in the slightest.
The market runs from 11am - 7pm and will be held here:
129 N. 6th st.
btw Bedford & Berry
Hope to see you there!
