Last Saturday, a friend hosted his annual epluchette de ble d’inde (corn on the cob party). This a familial outdoor party where we eat freshly picked corns cooked in boiling water. It is a tradition here in Quebec.
I decided to order two dozens of creative cupcakes from Clever Cupcakes. The first batch was made of a vanilla cake topped with vanilla buttercream and handmade fondant decorations. The second was a more daring flavor; I opt for a chocolate chili cake. The icing was vanilla butterscream colored in bright yellow. I can vouch that the cupcakes are as good as they look.
Michelle of Clever Cupcakes is easy to deal with. We talked on the phone and by email. We selected together the items she will do in 3D: corn, salt, corn holders, and pats of butter. The second patch features the classic red gingham tablecloth pattern. The pictures do not show well the French words that were imprinted. I selected beurre (butter), sel (salt), épi de maïs (corn-cub), blé d’inde (corn), épluchette.
My girlfriends asked me where I got my cupcakes. Everyone was in awe with the corn roast design. I will definitely order from Michelle in the future.
As for the event itself, the weather was fabulous. The food was delicious. Everyone had a lot of fun and we look forward to next year event.

Sarah: For now delivery is only available in Montreal and the surrounding areas mainly due to issues with customs plus the fact that cupcakes are fragile and preservative free. Maybe that will change in the future.

This morning I woke up early and I could not sleep at night, becouse of this article. It’s really a sleep taker?.
