Kendall's Cakes

I recently came across a Falls Church, Virginia based bakery, Kendall’s Cakes, that I thought everyone should know about! Kendall has worked closely with the pastry chef at the Ritz Carlton, and has designed and created extraordinary cakes and pastries for such luminaries as Tony Bennett, author Annie Lamott and the Bush Family. Kendall's Cakes has also been featured in The Washington Post, Modern Bride Washington, and Northern Virginia Magazine.

I shot Kendall an email and asked her to tell us a little about her cupcakes. Kendall says "my cupcakes are different from most of the others. I think that the fillings, mousses, punches and curds that I use in my wedding cakes are one of the things that make my cakes so popular. So when I make my cupcakes, I cut off the tops, scoop out the centers, punch and fill them with the appropriate filling, place the top back on and then decorate them. That means that a lemon cupcake is lemon cake, lemon punch (the sweet lemony syrup that I make) lemon curd and then lemon buttercream. Oh, so delicious."
A little more pricey than your average cupcake, Kendall's cupcakes cost $6.50 each and there is a one dozen minimum. I've got to say that based on her gallery, they are beautifully decorated. Of course if you want sugar flowers or any time consuming decorations, the cupcakes can cost a bit more. Kendall says the cupcakes "are very popular for weddings where people are expecting to pay a premium. And also at bridal and baby showers."

This Cup Cakes looks so beautiful with the colors, I'm sure it'll be a big hit with the kids! Nice colors! Although I'm to a big fan of Cup cake, this sure looks yummy! I'm normally the one that will say no to Cup cake.
