Honey Cupcakes

This week was time to try a new favorite: honey cupcakes!

The buttermilk batter is fluffy and moist. It doesn’t taste as “honey-ish” as I would like, but the honey buttercream makes up for it. The best part: it is not too sweet.

These cupcakes are dedicated to the military in this Memorial Day.

Portuguese Tiles and Cakes

Hi, mates!

On this page I’m going to share with you some of my latest cake, cake pops and cupcake designs, and also some tips on cake decorating. I hope you like it!

But first, I’m going to tell a bit more about myself and why I chose Portuguese Tile to my display.

My name is Leticia and I’m a brazilian publisher with a passion for cakes. I had my undergrad on Publishing and masters degree on Fine Arts, both on the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). Despite my background in arts and editing, I never considered myself a skillful person. “Art projects, only with Adobe platform”, as I would say.

But everything started to change when I decided to embrace my passion for cakes and cake decorating. I first started baking cupcakes, back in Brazil. My main goal was to develop some manual skills, entertain my friends and family with some great treats and enjoy myself. Didn’t took long before people began to ask me about catering and I stepped into business.

Everything REALLY changed, though, when I decided to marry this awesome man. We got married in July of 2014 and soon after that I moved to the US. Since we got here, I resumed my baking activities and decided to take them to the next level by taking classes and practicing a lot, having found among friends, my best tasting subjects.

After receiving some positive feedback, I decided to share some of my flavors with the community, offering my services as a cake, cake pop and cupcake designer-baker. I’d love to share some special moments with you all, by giving a sweet touch to the party.

See you soon!

Oh! About the portuguese tile on the header… To test the technique of painted fondant, I have challenged myself to paint some tiles, really common in Brazil (because of our colonization history). The one in the header is one of my paintings, and it was inspired by my college walls. Below I present the original picture of the tiles and their edible-fondant-painted version.
