Peach cupcakes & update

It has been a difficult couple of weeks. We had found a location. We were going to sign the contract. We told the owner we needed to check one last thing about how we would fit an extractor fan. We had to be away over the weekend and when Alex went by the property after the weekend, he discovered the owner had given the property to someone else.

Needless to say we were very disappointed. We had to start the search all over again. Just as you think you are about to move onto the next step then you end up back where you were.

We are still forging ahead but sometimes it feels like we are going backwards instead of forwards.

This week I made peach cupcakes. They were delicious and will definitely be a seasonal item on the menu.

Speaking of the menu. I've been working on the daily/weekly menu of the shop. To take my mind off the things which are progressing more slowly, I sat down and wrote a list of all the flavours I've been working on and a handful which I intend to add but haven't refined my recipe yet. I was quite surprised that the list was pretty long! Then I made a a rough plan of my weekly menu, which cupcakes and how many I'll have available daily, which flavours will rotate, as well as seasonal cupcake flavours, ones with seasonal fruits or vegetables in them.

So that's where we are up to this week. I just realised today that we didn't have our monthly give-away for June. It was a rather frantic month with one thing and another. Keep checking in and we will have a give-away soon. I promise! :-)

  1. Greek peaches are the BEST! I just picked a bunch from my grandpa's yard and was wondering what to do with them. Your cupcakes look delish!

  2. i'm unhappy - i feel your pain
    i'm thinking about you and how you're feeling
    here's one good thing about the loss: at least you don't make rash moves - and hang on in there (you never know if the new person will be lasting more than one season)

    so glad to hear about the peach muffins working out so well - i am jealous (i want to devise my own recipe now based on this photo!)
    i love seasonal fruit and veges sweets - right now, the zucchini cake season is in full swing! (recipe availabe on the blog - feel free to use it - it's excellent, even if i may say so myself!)
