The Scoop: New local cupcake biz will put farm-friendly spin on popular dessert

March 14th 11:03am, 2011

031411_cupcakesIt’s no secret that cupcakes are all the rage, but the latest little cake maker in town is putting a refreshing spin on this much desired dessert. Rather than operate a brick-and-mortar store, owner Kaylen Wissinger will debut her Farm Fresh Cupcakes at the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market this spring and at events such as LouFest, the Shaw Art Fair and the St. Louis Art Fair.

As the business’ name implies, Wissinger’s cupcakes will be made using as many farm-fresh ingredients as possible. “The eggs, milk, butter, flour – it’s all artisanal, all local, all organic,” said Wissinger, who told The Scoop that she expects to carry between six and seven flavors on market days. Though she plans to offer a few regular flavors such as double vanilla, birthday cake and malted milkball (“It tastes like a milkshake; it’s so good!” noted Wissinger.), the majority of Farm Fresh Cupcakes will be seasonal. In the summer, watch for berries and peaches, and when fall sets in, apples will appear along with a yummy combo of sweet potatoes with candied pecans and marshmallows.

Wissinger said that her business is still “very much in the beginning stages.” In addition to tweaking recipes, she is in the midst of building a Web site for the business. For now, you can follow Farm Fresh Cupcakes on Facebook and Twitter @farmfreshcup.
