A Taste of Spring

This last Thursday Kumquat Cupcakery was invited to be a part of a large benefit held for the Adoption Institute called A Taste of Spring. Along with me there were other folks you might have heard of: Jean-Georges, David Burke, Cyril Renaud, Bobby know, this guy.....

There were 10 restaurants in total and I was the only one with dessert, so my table got a a lot of love. Everyone there was so complimentary and sweet it made my heart all warm and fuzzy.

I loved these guys. They made about 3 trips back to my table and filled their plate each time.

The next morning when I woke up to make my 6am trip over to the kitchen I opened my laptop and found one of the sweetest emails I've ever received since starting Kumquat. It went a little something like this.....

"Dear Kumquat Cupcakery,

I just returned from the Taste of Spring event at the Puck Building, where I was lucky enough to sample all sorts of culinary delights. My colleagues and I all agreed that your cupcakes totally stole the show. David Burke? Bobby Flay? Who are those guys? YOUR cupcakes were the best little bites going. Bacon. Wow. And the salted caramel and red velvet varieties were divine as well. Thank you so much for being there, it was delightful. Next time I am in Brooklyn, I am going to make a pilgrimage to your shop.
Keep up the cupcaketastic work!
Julia Bailin"

Thanks Julia!!! You made my day.
