Fancy-shmancy cupcakes always catch my attention- with a faint whiff of innuendo. I find many bakeries specializing in almost “toddlers & tiaras” type cupcakes, blissfully ignoring the essence of good cupcakes. Extremities, are rarely the key in baking taste bud wise memorable cupcakes.
That’s why I am not the biggest fan when it comes to bakeries like… Crumbs- commercialized and outrageously sized. Sometimes I can’t help but to wonder whether those cupcakes are created on behalf of environmental conscious minds- basically recycling halloween left over candies, chaotically slapped on buttercream icing all year long. But let’s set aside my fear of unconventional cupcakes, because I might have found “it.”
Size-wise, craziness-wise, it is all in moderation. I’ve tried several cupcakes including Flapjack Cupcake made of Maple Brown Butter, cake with Maple Butter, & Creamcheese frosting, and Unporked Elvis with Banana cake, Peanut Butter frosting, & Chocolate drizzle. My favorite was Flapjack Cupcake- and they have given me the ultimate reason to indulge this cupcake more than ever- BACON PIECES SPRINKLED ON TOP!
