… and sings, and acts.
A blog post in two parts.
See these delectable-looking cupcakes? Well, they taste as sumtuous as they appear.
Indulge your imagination for a moment:
Oh-so-light-and-tender mocha cake. Moist and a little crumbly. Topped with luscious, full-fat, espresso buttercream. Caffeine in both elements, for an added zing. Chocolate drizzle to top it all off.
Today’s was my first Katie Cake, but I can promise you it won’t be my last.
Katie Cakes is a local (Raleigh) made-to-order cupcake purveyor. Whatever flavors and designs your cupcake lovin’ heart desires, Katie Cakes can deliver the goods for special occasions like birthdays and showers. Or just to indulge your everyday cravings.
Industrious twenty-something Katie Bowra is the baker behind Katie Cakes, which is just one of her spare-time hobbies. Recently, you might have seen her or heard her voice in ads. Or if you’re a patron of Raleigh Little Theatre, you’ve likely enjoyed her on-stage talents. Oh, and she also manages to squeeze in a full time job.
In case you’re interested in indulging in Katie’s showbiz and baking genius, I’ve got a recommendation for you: Raleigh Little Theatre’s Divas! (Check out Katie’s video on the event website.)
Katie is one of 11 RLT performers vying for the 2012 Divas! crown. $1 = 1 vote. (And a $35 ticket — which you can specify to count toward Katie’s diva-ship — will buy you an evening of glitz and glamour November 10, when this year’s candidates and past winners will dazzle you with show tunes and catchy choreography.)
But here’s the best part: For an online Razoo donation of $50 of more, you’ll receive a dozen Katie Cakes — any flavor of your choosing — redeemable from mid-November through early 2013.
An outstanding performance and outstanding cupcakes, all to benefit an North Carolina’s longest-running community theatre.
