Strain, a mom of three, has been baking since she was a kid. These days, she works in her kitchen to come up with yummy flavors like strawberry red velvet and Tahitian vanilla. She uses as many organic and locally grown products as she can. And she offers vegan and gluten free treats too,

The winner's user name or Twitter name will be posted on this post by 9 p.m. May 21 and an email or message will be sent to the winner, if possible.

    Frosting :-)

    Actually, I like the filling in the middle. My cupcakes have to have filling now :) So maybe icing is my answer!

  • carelesswhisper May 22, 2012

    Yes!!! Finally! I sent you an email lastnight.

    I like both. I start with the frosting and then end with the cake part. You just can't go wrong with a cupcake. :)

    It would be hard to say which part I prefer - you really need the right combination of both parts to make the perfect dessert! They balance each other to make the perfect combination of moist cake and creamy frosting. Too much frosting and you've gotten yourself off kilter; not enough frosting and you've killed the cake. Both parts marry together to make the cupcake one of my favorite desserts!
