From Emily Ryan at The Daily Local:
For another twist on tradition, try Tracey Deschaine’s signature “Upcakes” upside-down, icing-covered cupcakes just like her great-aunt made.
“The story was my Mom used to eat the icing off of the top, so she started icing the whole thing,” said the owner of Dixie Picnic in Malvern. “The icing around the side keeps it very moist. It’s almost like a mini layer cake.”
A favorite: toasted almond on yellow cake, reminiscent of an old-fashioned Good Humor bar.
“We call it yellow cake, but it’s a hot milk cake that my grandmother used to make,” Deschaine described. “It’s a cake that requires a touch of technique, and we’ve got that down.”
