Time to celebrate! And fortunately lots of folks are ready to help. Teresa Taylor described them in “Quake cakes and brews” in the Post and Courier:
Add 4 oz. Pineapple Juice
“’Maybe we can do something topsy-turvy,’ thought Bowick. They … came up with a riff on liquefaction, which happens during earthquakes where sandy soil is predominant. Water underground bubbles up and turns the surface soil into something like quicksand. … So they made cupcakes with liquid fillings, such as lemon and lime curds and vanilla butter cream. To carry the theme further, they sprinkled the tops with chunky garnishes such as nuts, crystallized ginger and chocolate to simulate pieces of crumbled buildings.”
Cupquakes are available at many of the book signings that Susan Millar Williams and Stephen G. Hoffius attend. And they can be special ordered for your own private celebrations.
