I first met Keavy a few years ago, right about the time she made the bold decision to switch careers so she could bake cupcakes for a living. She was friends with some of my co-workers and was bringing batches of freshly baked cupcakes to our office for feedback on her recipes. Since then her business Kumquat Cupcakery has taken off and she’s begun a new venture, Butter & Scotch, a baked goods and booze bar in Brooklyn.
Do you still practice? If so, what do your practice sessions look like?
I guess my practice would be when I get to play around in my own kitchen. To be honest this doesn’t happen often. I’m typically so exhausted by the time I get home from baking that all I want is a large glass of wine and a movie.
