Katie Perry of Little B’s Cupcakes of Rochester, NH is getting in the St. Patrick’s Day holiday spirit with her Kiss Me I’m Irish Cupcake – a slight hint of crème de menthe in the cupcake, with a cream cheese frosting. Love cream cheese frosting!
Barbara Smith of Cakes by Babbs has the keys to my heart with her Almond Joy cupcake – Dark Chocolate Cupcake with a Coconut Buttercream dipped in Chocolate and finished with toasted coconut and a candied almond!
Morgan Doucet and Lexie Sanborn have developed the Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino. This will be a crowd favorite! This cupcake was inspired by their favorite drink at Starbucks, the “Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino.” The cupcake itself is a moist, devil’s food cake mixed with chocolate chips to give it a fluffy yet chunky (in a good way) consistency. The cupcake is cored and filled with a light, fudge drizzle and chocolate mousse. Finally, it is topped with a Swiss meringue butter-cream frosting and fudge drizzle. For added decor, a Starbucks straw is added to portray the infamous Starbucks frappuccino.
