PubCakes = Beer + Cupcakes FTW!


PubCakes is a new baking venture in San Diego, CA that combines two of the world’s greatest ingredients: beer and cupcakes.

“I am often asked how I came up with the idea to combine beer and cupcakes. PubCakes started with a love of beer and a desire to share it with others. Chocolate stout cakes have been around for a while, but I couldn’t find mention of any other beers being used for baking cakes. So to fill a semester off of school, I spent my free time playing in the kitchen with cupcakes and beer. Amazingly, it worked! I would bring them out to my friends at different bars, until I became known as the cupcake girl.” — Misty Birchall, PubCakes founder. See the full post »

It only seems fitting to bring the Loire Valley “oyster wine” over to Seattle to match with the bountiful offerings of its local oyster farms. Muscadet is an undisputed perfect pairing for oysters, and will be the feature at 18 Seattle area restaurants from September 15th to October 15th. See the full post »
