Abstract

"Concoctions for the Cupcake Connoisseur!"


What is Cupcake Chromatography?

Cupcake Chromatography is a pun, that describes the scientific technique behind the creation of our concoctions and the educational aspect of the blog.

Chromatography is a scientific procedure that is used to separate a compound into its components. There are various types of chromatography; however, Cupcake Chromatography focuses on the identification of ingredients for sweet treats and their recombination to create unique flavors! 

Cupcake Chromatography originally started as a blog, demystifying scientific principles through cupcake making. Now, it is quickly developing into a budding small business that allows customers to purchase decadent bespoke cakes and cupcakes either from our unique list of concoctions, or  create their very own! We also offer food crafting classes and events.

About the Owner

As a teenager Nadia fell in love with food and nutrition and was frequently complimented on her cooking and baking. She wanted to start a dessert making business right out of high school; however, growing up in a family where everyone cooks and bakes well, when she was faced with the choice of taking culinary arts courses and attempting to start a business, or pursuing her interest in the physical sciences, her family thought that the latter was a better option.

After putting baking on hold to complete a degree in Forensic Toxicology, Nadia slowly started baking again for potluck events and friend’s birthdays and received great reviews. On one such occasion about 9 years ago she made my first cupcakes. She decorated them, arranged them into a small tower and took them to a get-together at a friend’s house. When she placed the arrangement on the buffet table the cute cupcakes were their one minute, with everyone crowding around, admiring them, and then there was an empty plate the very next. Nadia received numerous compliments about how pretty they looked and how great they tasted and received subsequent orders for baby showers etc. There Cupcake Chromatography began!

Nadia began this small business as a means to combine her love for food and nutrition, creative arts, dessert making, the physical sciences and even education and technology,  while using unique concoctions to bring smiles, sweetness and great flavors to our customers.

We're always looking for a challenge to create unique flavors, especially the concoctions our customers can create. Some of our proudest concoctions thus far are: Kidney Cupcakes, Cranberry Vodka Cupcakes, Pumpkin Fruit Cake with Coconut Ginger Frosting, and Peanut Butter Pepperoni Cupcakes!
