It just had to be named “more,” didn’t it? After all, that’s probably the first word that comes to mind after taking a bite of one of Patty Rothman’s cupcake creations.
Though it’s true that bakeries specializing in these delicate desserts have popped up all over the country, there is something special about Rothman’s creations from more™, which is located in Chicago. The treats sold at more have a certain quality about them that is challenging the cupcake status quo–important, now that doughnuts are starting to nip at the heels of the cupcake. One of the key differentiators is more’s innovative array of flavors, which includes the Passion Fruit Meringue, or the S’more cupcake. Custom cupcake flavors shown in the photos, for example, were a savory Mango Cilantro, Valrhona Chocolate, and Bourbon Orange–all part of an orange-themed party to raise awareness of Share Our Strength‘s No Kid Hungry campaign, aimed at ending childhood hunger in America.
Rothman’s cupcakes include classic favorites such as red velvet, chocolate, and vanilla, as well as the more exotic flavors. And, her selections are available for order online. So, next time you need a taste of something a little different, try one of these sweet or savory selections. After all, that Goat Cheese Pear Walnut cupcake just might serve as a unique appetizer at your next get-together. Finally, a dessert that won’t spoil your dinner!
