What’s the Fig Idea?

It will be a few years before I can harvest any fruit from my fig tree. There is some good news to report. The tree has sprouted a leaf and a few tiny buds that will grow into branches. At this point, the tree is doing better than the cuttings I am attempting to grow in  a container.

Last Sunday, my wife took a walk through West Town Mall after seeing a movie. We stopped at the Scrumps Cupcakes kiosk where I sampled one of their Muy Caliente mini cupcakes. The unusual flavor gave me an idea. I asked Kathleen from Scrumps to consider creating a fig cupcake. I promised to look online for other fig cupcake recipes to give her some ideas.

Ripe figs are only available for a few weeks each year. When the fruit is ready, there is often more than one family can eat. I wonder if Scrumps could offer an incentive to local fig growers if they bring their extra figs to the store. I’ll have to ask Kathleen if that’s possible.

    You will do almost anything for a free cupcake won’t you?
