It was a shock to me that the first place where I find a cupcake in Townsville was at the McDonald McCafe. (McCafe is the coffee and sweet dessert section of McDonalds – this doesn’t really exist in the American McDonalds.) What on earth? This is craziness!
In 2 1/2 weeks of my arrival I was chatting with a lady at church and I learned she was in need of cupcakes for a lady’s Tea Party. Oh yeah, of course! Bring it on… that was order #1 from the island of Australia!! Because it was getting close to Easter I went with an Easter theme. Found some beautiful pastel colored chocolate mini eggs, then tinted some shredded coconut green and topped that on a pale yellow buttercream…. tada… Easter cupcakes on the island of Australia!
