My friend had a “Stella & Dot” cupcake and wine party and asked me to make mini cupcakes for the event.  She chose an almond sour cream cake with lemon curd and lemon buttercream (white swirls) and double chocolate cake with caramel and caramel buttercream (S&D iconic blue swirls).  Since minis are virtually impossible to “fill,” I simply mounded a dollop of the filling on top of each cake before swirling on the buttercream.  The filling added just the right dimension to the already richly-flavored cake. The dainty little bites were a perfect match to a glass of wine and some fabulous jewelry and accessories.  And, best of all,  there was little guilt if you wanted more than one!stella-and-dot-cupcakes-4 stella-and-dot-cupcakes-5 stella-and-dot-cupcakes-7 stella-and-dot-cupcakes-13 stella-and-dot-cupcakes-15
