Nicki Kerbs, Director of Operations, talked with us about the special ingredients that go into each of these little sweeties.
“What makes these cupcakes fantastic are the ingredients, and proper mixing.” she told us. In fact, they take the mixing very seriously – there is a 2 week bakery boot camp training for each new baker. “Each ingredient we use comes from a special place and we must respect those ingredients with the proper technique.”
The flour comes from wheat farmers in Eastern Washington, the dairy is local and growth hormone-free, and the eggs are cage-free organic. They use organic cane sugar because the least touched sugar adds to the perfect crumb, as well as the perfect flavor.
Between cake and frosting, they go through 500 Lbs of sweet, local butter a week!
(A note to home bakers: always keep your butter at room temperature. You may have heard this before, but the experts at CR swear that this is super important for the best possible baking results.)
After our own personal mini bakery bootcamp, we were on to more fun! The frosting of the cupcakes!
But it all starts with a nice sized dollop of smooth frosting, there’s some patting involved to get the air out, and then a swirling motion seals the deal.
It’s a perfect event for birthdays, holiday parties or even just a great night out with the girls.
It is only $20 per person for up to 90 minutes at a Sprinkle Party table, and includes 2 cupcakes and a beverage for each guest. (Adult guests can take advantage of the BYOB option!)
The best part of this party? They clean up the mess!
