Some will say that Western Culture has wreaked havoc on Eastern countries: we've given them McDonald's, cowboy boots, Michael Jackson. Owch. But we've also redeemed ourselves a little bit by exporting the cupcake trend, which is just starting to take off in countries like Japan, China and Singapore. Cakespy recently had a chance to talk about cupcakes with Triy, owner of the aptly named Cupcake Culture, a new cupcake catering business located in Singapore. Here's what we learned about cupcakes, dessert, and the best time of day to eat cake:
CS: Can you tell us a little bit more about your business? Do you work by special order only, or do you have a store?
CS: What is the most cupcakes you've ever made in one day?
CS: Do you only make cupcakes, or do you make full-size cakes too?
CS: Cupcakes are extremely popular in the USA right now; there are many bakeries that ONLY sell cupcakes here. Is it the same in Singapore?
CS: Where do you get your recipes?
CS: Do you have any favorite recipes you'd like to share?
