Here at the Village Grocer we have a strong love for our furry friends, so last year when were heard about National Cupcake Day in support of SPCAs and Humane Societies, we jumped right on board. The idea of promoting our incredible cupcakes to benefit a great cause is something everybody in the store can get behind. The MacDonalds’s are hardcore cat people. In fact, at one time there were twelve (!) under Cathy and Evan’s roof which is about eleven too many if you ask me. This year we have decided to register again!
Drop by between Feb 18th-22nd and buy a cupcake..or 12 ..for the most delicious way to show your support for animals in need. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the SPCA and Humane Societies.
Here are the 11 flavours we’ll be featuring:
Vanilla – white base with vanilla frosting
Chocolate – chocolate base with chocolate frosting
Red Velvet – red velvet base, injected with chocolate ganache, topped with cream cheese icing
Jelly Roll – white base, topped with fresh berries and whipped cream
Lemon Meringue – probably my second favourite! We inject a white base full of lemon curd and then pipe on meringue and torch it
Cookies & Cream – chocolate base topped with white icing studded with crushed Oreos
Black & White Mousse Cupcake – this is easily my fave! We take a vanilla cupcake, inject it with a heaping amount of white chocolate mousse and then finish it with a layer of chocolate ganache. So over the top decadent!
Black Forest Cupcake – chocolate cupcake soaked in kirsch, topped with cherry filling and freshly whipped cream
Caramel Pralines – chocolate Base topped with a caramel icing with a load of candied pecans.
Strawberry Mousse – white cupcake topped with strawberry mousse and a glazed strawberry.
Mocha Buttercream – for our coffee lovers, how could you not love this cupcake!
