I Dream of Buttercream ...

Okay, I don't really dream of buttercream, but I do love buttercream icing - even more than the actual cupcake, in most instances. However, Ashley from Buttercream Dreams has made me double-think my tendency for licking off the icing only and throwing out the actual cupcake. (Okay, I was exaggerating a bit -I don't throw out the entire cupcake - I may eat a bite or two of the top just like Elaine on Seinfeld. Speaking of which, the Muffin Tops episode was on the other night. Too funny. I would so go to a shop that only served muffin tops.) Okay, I digress. Back to my point, if I had one of Ashley's couture cupcakes I may just be inspired to eat the entire thing. They aren't your typical cupcakes made from cake batter - no, she actually fills many of her cupcakes with fluffs and fabulous fillings. I must mention that her mixes are even made from scratch - no boxes or mixes in her kitchen.

Take for instance the above Cookies and Cream Cupcakes, one of her specialities. She actually bakes an entire Oreo Cookie into the cupcake itself. And if that weren't enough cookie goodness, she finishes them off with Oreo crumbles and mini Oreo cookies. Now that is one cupcake that I would devour - completely!
Ashley doesn't have a shop just yet, but no worries you are able to custom order her couture cupcakes for your special occasion, or for no occasion at all! If I lived closer to Atlanta I would so be ordering a batch of the above, but since I don't I'll just have to stare longingly at the above photo while my stomach sadly growls (or shall I say cries) that she only had an oatmeal creme pie for dessert. (As if I even needed that.)
If the above has tempted your sweet tooth in the least bit, visit the Buttercream Dreams blog for more scrumptious photos and even listings of all of her current batters, fillings, and icings just waiting to give you sweet dreams of buttercreams.
