Halloween Cupcakes Are Coming! (Zurich)

Hi All

Fräulein Meier at Oh! sweetest thing is now taking orders for her gourmet Halloween cupcakes. They're all handmade from scratch, without off-the-shelf ingredients.

Pre-order is recommended to avoid disappointed kiddies (and adults): http://ohsweetestthing.com/

This user would like to thank cas for this useful post:

Re: Halloween Cupcakes Are Coming! (Zurich)

I was very interested , until I saw that 10 cupcakes would cost 59CHF
That price just puts me off.

Holy cow, seriously?! 59CHF? Wow, I really should start selling stuff out of my kitchen. I wonder what I could sell my cinnamon rolls for (as those take actual work to make). Just...wow.

They look great, and no doubt taste great, but I refuse to be Switzerlanded by a cup cake !

Indeed. I usually make a boatload of these cupcakes for Halloween every year for my daughter's classmates as making 100 of them is about the same as making 10 of them on a production line. And to think I could charge so much for them....maybe I really should look into going into business for myself.

Hi Upthehatters2008 and poptart

As mentioned, Oh! sweetest thing cupcakes are gourmet, meaning they're not mass produced and each one is decorated by hand. Fräulein Meier has plenty of customers who are happy to pay the price because they value the craft that goes into making each cupcake.

Of course they're not for everybodies pocket. If that's the case or you're happy with a cheap alternative, Coop and Migros sell 2 cupcakes for around 4 CHF. Taste and design-wise you get what you pay for.

All the best
Chris

Do you have a commercial interest in this venture ?

I need a forum holiday, I'm currently involved in cup cake snobbery debates...

Chris, well, since I make my own in my own kitchen, I guess I don't get to call them 'gourmet', but I'm not exactly a factory and can't imagine what makes these worth 59CHF for 10. If you can get it, awesome, though it's seriously eye popping. The time spent making cupcakes isn't all that much, so I'd be terrified to see what her prices for bread would be where there is a lot of time and manual labor in the process. Does she make all the candies and marshmallows herself or something?

I've been making them every year for Halloween since Martha Stewart published the idea in her mag about a decade ago and they're really pretty simple to make. And, while I don't grind my own flour or churn my own butter, they can qualify for homemade.

NB: and if anyone else wants cute halloween cupcakes - google for "Martha Stewart Creepy Cupcakes" or PM me as I think I have a bunch of the illustrations around somewhere in my folders and have a good chocolate cupcake recipe.
