Small Town Bakery Sells One Million Cupcakes

By on Thursday, January 14th, 2010

Deanna and Phil Watkins started a small bakery in their hometown, St. Charles four years ago. It started as very small establishment, but slowly the craze started to rise and has now reached a height that even the Watkins can’t believe.

The craze for their cupcakes has made them reach a milestone that most bakeries in the world would envy.
The Sweet Dream Desserts bakery has now officially sold one million cupcakes. Their cupcakes are so popular that they have now opened a branch at Route 64 in a town called Wasco which is near St. Charles.

Even Deanna Watkins can’t believe her own success. She says, “People have gone crazy for our cupcakes. I knew cupcakes were trendy but I had no idea.” They sell many varieties of cupcakes including vanilla, chocolate, red velvet and chocolate ganache among others. All cupcakes are baked by Watkins herself from scratch.

Scared of Cupcakes? Try these ways to cut calories!

There is nothing better than a nice cupcake to quench a sudden sugar craving. But do you know that one batch or cupcakes can contain more than one cup of butter? Needless to say, most calorie conscious people see these tiny cute things as one of their worst enemies.

But do you know that by changing few things in the cupcake recipe, you can make it much healthier? Yes, for example, instead of using butter you can use canola oil which is rich in monounsaturated fats. You can also add a cup of applesauce or mixed fruit butter in your cupcake batter and eliminate the oil and butter completely.

Another great way to make the cupcakes healthier is to add whole wheat flour in the batter. You can use the fine flour and whole wheat one in equal proportions. This will increase the fiber content and make them easier to digest.

Now, don’t shy away from eating cupcakes. After all, life is to enjoy the things we love!
