If there’s one thing that a girl will never stop loving, it’s cupcakes. The cake, the frosting, the sprinkles, a cupcake can make that frown turn upside down! One of my favorite places for buying cupcakes is this local store we have here in Michigan called “Just Baked“. Now, these are not your regular cupcakes. Oh, no. The cupcake itself (minus all the frosting and stuff on top), is huge! Add on the extra goodness, which is twice as big as the cake, you’ve got yourself a whole meal!
There’s nothing wrong with sharing the goodness, so let’s take a look at 5 cupcakes that will make your mouth water and your stomach grumble.
The Fat Elvis cupcake is the one in the above picture, and just hearing the name is enough to make you smile. It may look a little plain, but you can bet that the flavor is nothing short of amazing. A banana cake with peanut butter-buttercream pillows all then covered in the shop’s homemade ganache? Simply delicious!
This is one of the cupcakes that I have tried myself. And let me tell you, I fell in love that day. The Samoa cupcake consists of a coconut chocolate chip cake with a coconut graham cracker bottom. But wait, there’s more. The top is made of coconut graham cracker crumble and finishes with some extra caramel and chocolate. Now that is one cake that is enough to send your taste buds into outer space.
Cheesecake in cupcake form? Yes, it may sound a tad gross, but the taste is far from it. The Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Cupcake is both a mouthful to say and a mouthful to eat. With a small amount of cheesecake baked right in the center of the devil’s food cake, this cupcake is then topped off with cherries and drizzled with some more chocolate. Yum, yum, yum!
Next to cupcakes, cobbler is another great food invention ever to roam this earth. So what do you get when you combine cobbler and cupcakes? One amazing, delicious, Cherry Cobbler Cupcake. This time, the cake is a simple vanilla, but the bottom is made of shortbread cookies. Yummy cherries and some more shortbread cookie crumble top off the cupcake and makes your tummy smile in satisfaction.
Our last one for the list is actually a very limited edition one! The Big Game Cupcake is just as the name suggests; it will only be around during the Super Bowl weekend. In other words, this cupcake consists of the food you’re likely to see at a Super Bowl party, all coated in chocolate. The devil’s food cake is stuffed and dipped in Guinness infused ganache, doubling the amount of chocolate. Then, the cupcake is rolled through some peanuts, pretzels, and even potato chips, all to be coated in even more chocolate. Heart attack in a cake, guys.
