CTTC Recap of Jennifer Appel's Talk at Makor

Cupcake blogger Nichelle attended the event at Makor last night where Buttercup Bake Shop owner Jennifer Appel talked about her business and baking. Her new cookbook, Buttercup Bakes At Home is filled with delicious recipes.

Here are my notes:
Jennifer actually studied to be a clinical psychologist.
She started Buttercup Bake Shop in August 1999 after leaving Magnolia Bakery.
Buttercup regularly has 10 different flavors of cupcakes, and red velvet cupcake is third most requested cupcake, after vanilla and chocolate.
Jennifer advises to always use unsalted butter when baking.

She also gave out peanut butter and chocolate chip drizzle cookies and she demonstrated how to make chunky peanut butter and jelly cupcakes.
