When it comes to cupcakes, Ming Thompson is a master. What makes her even more interesting is that Ming is a recent graduate with a Masters in Architecture, at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. She currently works as an exhibition designer and curator in New Haven, Connecticut. But you can also find these delicious bites online (website listed below). I can't think of two more creative fields than architecture and baking.
Ming Makes Cupcakes is her company in which there are 31 different cupcake recipes. They range from classics like Red Velvet (a personal favorite) with Buttercream Frosting or Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting to more unique flavors like Flourless Beet Cupcakes with Whipped Cream or Port Wine and Cherry Chocolate Cupcakes with Marscapone Frosting.
Ming also makes little treats for the mouth that she calls "Savouries" - like the Corn Bread with Goat Cheese and Bacon cupcake or the Cheddar Scallion cupcakes with Whipped Cream Cheese. I just got hungry typing this!
If you're a baker, it will be incredibly inspiring to you. She uses unique ingredients at it seems that people have been premature in predicting the death of the cupcake fad. Personally speaking, there is something irresistible about those little bites of cake. For more mouth watering details, if the photos haven't done it for you...
