S'mores Cupcakes

In a couple recent Test Kitchens (days where Corinne and Susan test new recipes together to create delectable new treats to add to our menu) we've converted an Autumn campfire favorite into our favorite food, a cupcake.  After a bit of tweaking, we're happy to present our newest goodie, the S'mores Cupcake.

This cupcake starts with a crumbly graham cracker crust beneath our favorite moist chocolate cake.  Then we top it with vanilla buttercream and coat it with graham cracker crumbs, because every s'more has to be sandwiched between two layers of graham crackers, right?  Finally we top it with a cluster of toasted marshmallows to round out the classic s'mores trio.

We think this is the best way to have a s'more no matter the season, and whether you're inside or out.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Our first new cupcake that we have created together since joining forces for good is our Pumpkin Spice Cupcake.  Autumn is arguably the best time of year to bake (well, Christmastime gives it a run for its money) with its earthy pumpkin and delicious spices. 

We went through quite a few batters for this new cupcake until we found our favorite combination of spices.  It's a moist pumpkin cake with just enough cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to give it a spicy Fall kick.  Those of you familiar with our classic Chocolate Cake will love this cake.  It has a similar moist-but-fluffy texture.  We topped it with a new frosting, a Brown Sugar Cream Cheese icing.  We think the tang of the cream cheese and smoky brown sugar pair quite nicely with the sweet cake.  Finally, we top them with either semisweet chocolate ganache or a hand-piped candy leaf and... Voila!  The Pumpkin Spice Cupcake is born!

Special thanks to TZRollins Photography for the beautiful photos.

You may have noticed our new sassy spatula logo which now adorns our blog and Facebook page.  She is the handiwork of the very talented Murphy Randle.  Could she be any cuter with her dollop coif and bow and her wink?  We would like to thank Murphy so much for helping us out with this (he also brought the old Suzy Sweet Tooth to life).  He is incredibly gifted and we can't say that enough.  You can view his website here

Coming Soon...

Big news!  "Suzy Sweet Tooth" is now "How Sweet It Is" and we're baking yummy sweets again!  And lots of 'em! 

Susan's baking partner, Corinne, (or "Coco" to those familiar with the CocoNilla cupcake named after her) has returned home from her 18 month church mission to Argentina.  And since being reunited, we are now baking together for good!

We currently have a very talented graphic design whiz on board with a new logo in the works.  We also have an equally gifted photographer who will be capturing our goodies on film for us to post on the blog.

Our new baby, How Sweet It Is, will have its home here, and old Suzy Sweet Tooth posts will still be found at  Soon you'll be able to find here our test kitchen creations (recipes we create and test together to perfect), as well as our menu of treats available, prices, and news.

Please stay tuned to see what confections we'll whip up (pun intended) together as How Sweet It Is!
