I have a daughter who swears by this new cupcake bakery called Cami Cakes Cupcakes, her red-velvet is to die for, I'm hosting a tea at my home and wanted to order some but I was told by the owner that all of the cupcakes had oil and butter in them? I have a lot of elderly women attending my tea and the oldest proclaimed she did not like oil in her cakes period, I was thinking since they have oil and butter would that make a big difference. This might be a ridiculous question but I would like to order from them because I don't have time and my daughter swears they are really good.

Are you in Florida? We have a Camicakes here (the first one). I know lots of people rave over the cupcakes. Personally, I have tried them twice and I thought they were greasy. I wonder if it was the oil??? But in any case, personally I wouldn't let one person's tastes dictate everything. Maybe that makes me not very polite...LOL! If you & your daughter like them then you should serve them! Just my opinion icon_smile.gif

No we are in Atlanta, I have ages in the twenties, and the oldest being 92, and the ones I tasted were oily, not to oily, but I asked the owner about them and she told me that she uses butter to so when I told the 92 year old that they were nice and moist due to the oil, thats when she stated that she doesn't eat cakes with oil in them...thats why I thought since they have butter in them also would that cancel out the oil factor, I'm just trying to please the older attendees....

It's a tea. I expect there to be sweets/baked goods at a tea. That means oil and/or butter. At the most, I would offer one alternative. They can simply eat what you offer, or just sip tea and chat. I don't mean that to sound mean, that's just the way it is. Whatever someone is avoiding or can't have for whatever reason, they just don't partake in that item.
