They take cupcakes to a whole new level: dark Belgian chocolate, Madagascar bourbon vanilla, sweet butter cream, 50 flavours, hand iced. As if their cupcakes weren’t enough on their own (and they are), we talk about how to pair them with different styles of wine depending on the cupcake flavour. Have fun with friends and a tasting party.
The Cupcake Lounge offers all-natural, gourmet cupcakes baked fresh daily. No artificial flavours, preservatives, or trans fats. The cupcakes are iced by hand with spatula, not simply piped.
Above, Claudia chats with Mayor Jim Watson … who seems to be surprised in a hungry sort of way. Claudia is a graduate of the Baking and Pastry Arts Program at Algonquin College in Ottawa, has more than 10 years of related experience, and was awarded Latin American Entrepreneur of the Year in 2012 by Mayor Jim Watson. Bill has a background in communications and almost 15 years in the high tech business.
Claudia was born in Mexico where coincidentally two of the world’s most important baking ingredients ― vanilla and chocolate ― actually originated. She was a natural in the kitchen at a young age. Claudia later studied art in places like San Miguel de Allende and early childhood education at the “Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM)” in Monterrey. And it’s her unique sense of creativity, design, and whimsy that’s evident in many of her cupcake creations today.
