Toffee Cupcakes!

If there's one thing we always have plenty of at Sweet-Stops... it's toffee bits! But those luscious crumbs never go to waste! They are fabulous as a cupcake topper!

Designer Cupcakes

So a client asked us: Can you make Louis Vuitton cupcakes?  We knew we could... it was just a matter of borrowing a friend's handbag for inspiration! Under that delicious fudge fondant, is a creamy layer of meringue icing and the rich chocolate cupcake is filled with fluffy ganache.  Decadence in every bite... and fit for a fashionista!

Creative Energy!

When passionate people get together in a room, there's no telling what can happen. We certainly didn't expect to see so many gorgeous cupcakes from ladies who had absolutely no experience with fondant. They created fabulous little beauties... that rival those seen in designer cupcake shoppes!  But the best part was all the laughing and ooohing and aaahing that went on, as we spent a happy day bonding and forging some new friendships!  Thanks ladies! xoxo

Toffee Tea Party!

Next time you break out the fine china for a tea party... skip the tea and crumpets and just fill those porcelain cups with scoops of vanilla ice cream! Drizzle on the chocolate sauce, add dollops of whipped cream and scrumptious toffee bits... then top with a cherry!  Don't forget to curl your pinkie!

Scrumptious Toffee Bits!

Whenever we cut our Sweet-Stops toffee... there are always broken bits left in the pan. Most of the time, they go into our toffee oatmeal cookies or sugar toffee cookies... but once in awhile we like to toss them into a hot bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, sprinkle them over pancakes or waffles, or tuck them into a doughy soft cinnamon roll! Later this week, we'll be taping an online webisode with Cheryl Style... that's all about the luscious ways you can use those toffee bits (yes ... we also stir them into coffee ice cream and freeze for a heavenly treat!)  We'll share some of our ideas once the webisode is available online... and hope you'll share your ideas with us!

Pure heaven from Crafty Confections! We had to post this picture, since we drooled all over it... and figured you would do the same!
