Best selling author Eliza Evans (Sara Richardson) is releasing a book, The Christmas Cafe. The main character in the book is trying to save her beloved restaurant, so she comes up with an epic Christmas-themed dessert. Sara (Eliza) asked me to partner with her to come up with her character's epic cake recipe that will be featured in her book! It's the mug cake pictured here.
We are planning to go on a book-cake tour when the book launches starting in October 2023! The book cake tour will include book signings & a cupcake pop up shop. Some of the signings will include cupcake classes where you can create your own version of the recipe in the book as a cupcake!

My name is Amanda Cupcake
I am an at home cottage baker located in Appleton, Wisconsin. I created the Amanda Cupcake brand in 2011. After coming back home to Wisconsin after living out in California working in the fashion industry for a decade, I started dressing up cupcakes instead of people and ultimately created my own fashion cupcake brand. I published a cupcake blog, where I shared my recipes. I started by selling my cupcakes at a small local diner in my hometown. I opened my own bakery called The Cupcake Mansion and sold my cupcakes at the local grocery chain, Woodmans. After this wild ride as Amanda Cupcake, I discovered my truest joy is being a cupcake designer, instead of being a cupcake manufacturer. I didn't want to lose my love for my art. So now I bake from home, and host cupcake pop up shops at local events. You may see me here & there as a guest, baking on local morning shows. I love to write, and share my passion for creating. I am dabbling a little bit in creating cupcake reels & content for social media. I have a passion for intertwining my teaching skills with speaking out about mental health. My ultimate goal eventually is to have my own studio where I can host events, classes & pop up shops. The income that I make from my pop up events goes right into my dream of opening up an Amanda Cupcake studio. Maybe someday I'll be the "Mrs Fields" of cupcakes... but right now, I am having fun. I always wanted to be a fashion designer, I just never knew that cupcakes would be my models.
