charming cupcakes from miette

Dark Chocolate M&Ms, neat.

I’ll be putting up observations on the making of the very tiny cupcakes soon. I think next I’d like to make a bunch of different types of frosting and figure out which I like best. Would anybody happen to know what type of frosting would be on these cupcakes (also small picture to right) or this cake from Miette? It’s so charming! Oops — they say right in their menu that it is “marshmallow-like boiled icing”.

Miette is an organic patisserie with a store in the Ferry Building in San Francisco. My years living San Francisco were ill timed — we got there just as all the happy happy start ups were shutting down and moved away just before the shops in the Ferry Building opened up. I used to work a few blocks from the Ferry Building and get a little sad when I think of all the food I missed out on, all the lunch time adventures I didn’t get to have.

Seattle Bon Vivant took a trip to Home Cake Decorating Supply Co. and got the skinny on the shop, she includes photos and location/hours. I know I have certainly fallen for the place in the last week.
