Charlotte Taste Maker: Delish Gourmet Cupcakes

I was lucky enough to receive Delish Gourmet Cupcakes on my birthday this year, and I hope to include them in many subsequent celebrations. Charlotte baker, Aryn Keogh, keeps busy in the kitchen whipping up her coveted treats for everything from corporate lunches to weddings. With a range of tantalizing flavors and a flair for artistic flourishes, such as life-like sugar butterflies perched atop frosting, Delish Gourmet Cupcakes are a favorite on the Charlotte scene.
The mother daughter team behind these perennially popular confections is as cute as the cupcakes they offer; beyond the out-of-this world taste of their cupcakes, working with them to create a personalized presentation is no doubt what brings back clients time after time.
Here is a sweet peek behind the scenes:
Where do you get your inspiration?
My mom and I could be considered shopaholics! I get my inspiration from looking at clothing patterns, jewelry, and other knick knacks. I also read lots of magazines in order to keep up with current styles.

What is your favorite part of the business?
I love designing custom cupcakes stands and decorations for weddings.

When you’re not in the kitchen with cupcakes, do you have other favorite things to bake/cook?
I can make a mean peanut butter cookie!

What has been the most challenging design to execute?
Fondant flowers are always tricky to design as making them look realistic is a true art.
What are some of your favorite Charlotte places? (restaurants, shopping etc.)
I LOVE TJMaxx! As for restaurants, Bombay Cuisine (Indian food) has got a really great lunch buffet. I often take a drive out to Latta Plantation for a walk by the lake.
A big thank you to Aryn and be sure to visit Delish online, HERE, for lots of yummy eye candy!

I was lucky enough to sample one of these gorgeous cakes at a baby shower I attended last week. I thought they couldn't taste as good as they look but guess what...They do!!! I would recomend anyone in the Charlotte area to get ordering I certainly will be! I'd especially recomend the carrot cake!
