The Little Mitten Cupcakes

8:11 AM

This was the start of a lapse in my super healthy eating habits.  It happened mid-December when I bought myself a cupcake.

I couldn't resist the flavor name - Eggnog.  Intriguing. 

I actually ate it the next morning as part of my breakfast, and it was delicious!  Probably should mention I usually do not like cupcakes/cakes/cookies from bakeries.  There is actually only one that I ever order, and it is the red velvet from Astoria Bakery.  The only other cupcakes I really like I admittedly stalk at the school bazaar - just waiting for the specific box to be delivered. (happily I got her recipe)

Writing about the PieBox carriers made me remember that I wanted to share this great new cupcake find with you.

I ended up ordering for our Christmas party instead of baking myself.  It was nice to take a break from baking, and be less stressed with all the preparations a party brings.

The cupcakes are made by Melissa Battani of 
The Little Mitten 
"a quirky cupcake company" 
She has a space in The Rust Belt Market in Ferndale.  Her cupcakes did not disappoint, and our friends had fun taste testing :)  There were lots of mini cupcakes cut into halves and quarters around the tables.

I snapped some photo's of each to make a flavors sign.
Take a look below to see the imaginative flavors.

Adorable and delicious!  She has many more flavors to choose from!
