Cupcake Success is All About the Ingredients

Cupcakes are made many different ways. Among us we find that many people have an ancestor, great grandmother, friend or other such person who knows someone who knows someone who knows how to create the best cupcake you will ever have in your life. How are these cupcakes deemed more superior than the lesser less exalted cupcakes in our midst? The differential factors lie in choosing extra special ingredients.

A cupcakes final outcome is truly dependent on the care and quality of the ingredients that are put into it. Some may think a cupcake is a cupcake. But they will not argue that there is a huge difference between homemade hamburgers versus McDonald 99 cent burgers.

Some boutique bakeries will go the extra mile and spend about eighty dollars on a bottle of vanilla essence whereas the average corner store mom n' pop bakery shop will spend ninety-five cents and wonder why their cupcakes don't have that extra special quality taste. The fine ingredients are created differently, grown with extra care, refined in a special manner. It is the difference between drinking a one hundred dollar bottle of champagne versus the five dollar liquor store special. Again, these perfecting touches just create a different palatable effect. These champagnes can be priced higher because alcohol connoisseurs can taste the difference. Such is the case for a finely crafted cupcake. I say "crafted" because with the extra special care that goes into these dessert treats, they become an art piece. They become someone's hard invested masterpiece.

The special ingredients do not stop with such finds as bottles of perfected vanilla essence. Every ingredient is a perfected, addition, something that has been created and cultivated with the greatest care. For example, there are different quality levels of chocolate, frosting, sugars, eggs, and other such ingredients that make up the ultimate cupcake mixture. Even the actual cooking, stirring and process of making these special cupcakes can be learned in a manner that will bring out the greatest qualities in the treat.

These ingredients might in the overall end result make the price tag of a cupcake well over the typical cupcake price, but that is why they are special. Most people on average do not buy a celebratory bottle of champagne everyday, much less every week. But, when the occasion affords it, many people will treat themselves because they know they are paying for quality. Such can be the same for these extraordinary cupcakes. Maybe one's son or daughter loves cupcakes and they just graduated from college with honors, why not opt for a cupcake delicacy instead of a cake to surprise and congratulate them?

For the affluent population, this can be the perfect dessert treat they have been looking for. Their wine cellars are already stocked with the best bottles of champagne and wine. Their garages filled with the latest vehicles of their dreams, why not top off their success with an extraordinary dessert treat!
