Here’s a little plug for some alumni. Trent* and Janelle Brown came to the our business convocation this past spring to talk about the success of their small business One Sweet Slice.
This is a bakery in Salt Lake City, specializing in cupcakes and wedding cakes (voted best in the city for each). And they won the show Cupcake Wars on the Food Network (see their blog). Here are some links to videos with some recipes:
- Cadbury Egg Cupcakes
- Ombre icing techniques on a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing
- Coconut key lime cupcakes
Janelle’s secret for baking at high altitude: a little less leavening, a little less sugar, a little more flour and a little more liquid (like an extra egg).

* Trent took my Principles of Macro class in Fall 2004. My vivid memory of him is that he and Nate Janes convinced me to show one of the original JibJab videos, about the positions of presidential candidates Bush and Kerry, in class.
