Wow. I can’t believe I just wrote that, but it’s true! This past Sunday night, the “LA Marathon” episode aired starring 4 teams of bakers – including Secret Marmalade (even though the show accidentally named us Sweet Marmalade).
Doing the show was such an experience and I love the cupcakes that we made: Sweet Pea Cupcakes brushed with stout beer and topped with a whipped Goat Cheese frosting, Banana Cupcakes topped with a Peanut Butter Mousse frosting, Watermelon Cupcakes topped with a Lime Buttercream, and Chocolate Cupcakes topped with Coconut Buttercream.
In fact, Secret Marmalade’s Sweet Pea Cupcake is now one of my favorite cupcakes!
Did you watch the show Sunday night? Let us know what you thought of Secret Marmalade – or is it Sweet Marmalade?

For the second year, Secret Marmalade was requested to bake cupcakes for one of the best Oscar parties in Los Angeles. It isn't an "official" Oscar party, but trust us, this is one party you want to be on the list for.
It's also an event we look forward to as the gracious host allows us to flex our creativity and play with designs and flavors. Last year, we brought three different flavors of cupcakes. Vanilla cupcakes wrapped in a red liner and topped with a gold star, Red velvet cupcakes topped with cream cheese icing for 127 Hours, and chocolate cupcakes topped with vanilla icing and a hand-piped dark chocolate swan for The Black Swan.
This year, we had a little more fun with the flavors and designs. It's hard to do too much design work on mini cupcakes, but we were happy with the results. So without further adieu, here were this year's four cupcakes:
