  2. Since it is our Pop Up Bakery on “Muffins & Cupcakes” should be served, it had to be one of those small baked – great, the restriction makes it easier with me before my indecision.
  3. It should me to represent have an Italian touch.
  4. When people take a bite, they should remember her last holidays in Italy and a little “sweet life” feel – in my mind's eye I already imagined the facial expressions of these people.
  5. It should look visually appealing – the eye eats with known!
