Cupcakes at the Art House of Delray featured on Culinary Tour

The Art House of Delray Beach has been included as a cultural feature on the non-profit  Taste History Culinary Tours.  The Art House is located in a building on Federal Highway that was once the location of an auto dealership, according to the Art House representatives.
 
As a new multi-discplinary cultural center in Delray Beach, the Art House also has a resident pastry chef named Shea of the namesake Shea's Bakery.  Shea is a child prodigy who, in her tender teen years, has been operating her own bakery business with many commercial clients and wedding cake orders.
 
The November 17, 2012 Taste History Culinary Tour of Historic Delray Beach & Boynton Beach also traveled to Donnie's Southern Restaurant, the Sundy House, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Papa's Tapas, Scuola Vecchia and Palermo's Bakery.  At the Art House, the group was led on a guided tour of the non-profit facility by its founder Michelle Ferry.  Delicious petite cupcakes in several flavors by Shea's Bakery were enjoyed by the Taste History Culinary Tour guests.

Custom cupcakes by Shea's Bakery at the Art House of Delray were a delight for the Taste History Culinary Tour guests.
Some reports state that the word "cupcake" was coined in 1828 however the recipe for cupakes has been traced to 1796 when it appeared in the American Cookery cookbook written by Amelia Simmons.  The cupcake is a decidely American dessert.

The following are more photos from the tour:
