Salted Butter Popcorn Cupcake

Inspired by Adriano Zumbo's salted butter popcorn macaron flavor on my trip to Sydney, which completely blew me away, I wanted to attempt a cupcake version of this flavour. And what better occasion to do it than on my 21st birthday?



I don't know what possessed me to conduct a bake sale for my 21st. While others had parties and celebrations when they looked pretty and had countless of photos to remember their special occasions, I stayed up for 3 days with only 2 hours of sleep to bake over 280 cupcakes and 4 whole cakes. The response to my bake sale idea was so overwhelming I just didn't want to turn down any orders.



This was undoubtedly the most eventful and unforgettable birthday of my life. I did ask myself occasionally if all these were worthwhile, but seeing the happy faces of those who came to collect the cupcakes just made me smile.



Thank you so much to my boyfriend, who stayed with me through the whole time - thank you for the sacrifices you made for me just for this sale, for keeping me sane. Thank you for also making the lemon blueberry cupcakes all by yourself. I'm sorry you didn't get enough sleep and were so exhausted those two days, but I was very happy when you told me you were proud of me.



Thank you also to my dear cousin who stayed over both nights to help me pack and label the boxes. Thank you (:
