The Friday Frosting

by Kristin Yantis

Every Friday the MYPR blog will be themed the "Friday Frosting" - musings about all things batter, butter cream and ideas that take the cake.

For those of you who know me well, you know that cake is my favorite food group. Of course I know that ‘cake’ isn’t a food group but it certainly should be. I grew up surrounded by candy with my family running the Chase Candy Company, however my weakness has always been cake.

With this in mind, I wanted to set aside one day every week to get off topic a bit, focus on something that isn’t only pr or marketing communications oriented. The Friday Frosting will critique or review some of our favorite bakeries, cupcake trucks and sweet spots we’ve found in Colorado or on our travels.

The Friday Frosting also is our opportunity to be a bit more whimsical and if we’ve not been able to get out and try the latest butter cream in the area, we’lll simply share some musings and observations about happenings throughout the week that ‘take the cake.’
