First off let me say that I am sorry about not being very active lately. It’s been hectic over here, with meeting with caterers, and finishing school for the quarter and everything else. So I’m going to entertain your taste buds with a trio of cupcakes that I made this week. First up: Buffalo-Blue Cheese Cupcakes with Blue Cheese Buttercream Frosting.
When I first saw these on my fellow cupcake lovers website Cupcake Project I was totally intrigued. I, myself LOVE me some buffalo wings, and I also LOVE me some blue cheese with it, so when Stef, who is the cupcake maven of that website posted about these for Superbowl Sunday, I was kind of on the fence. I mean yeah..who doesn’t love quirky fun stuff? But for this Minnesota girl, this was the first time I had discovered a cupcake that was savory. So after religiously following Stef’s blog for about 6 months now, I decided to make the darn things. I had my friend Jess over at the same time I was making them, and of course she made comments all along the way. Like: “Are they supposed to be that stinky???” I finally decided to ignore her, and continue with my mission. Once I popped those spicy, cheesy wonders into my oven, after about 15 minutes, my kitchen and living room took on the aroma of a delicious basket of BW3’s finest spicy concoctions. I took them out of the oven and wow! They sure were orange. I decided to take a risk and try one hot out of the oven, and I wasn’t impressed. I made the frosting after letting them cool, and I must say with a big tall glass of milk they aren’t half bad. Unfortunately, I was the only one who really liked these cakes. Future Groom 1.0 didn’t even try a bite! People at my place of employment tried them, but they said: “It just isn’t my cup of tea, sorry Meg.” No offense taken ya’ll.
So all in all, I would have to say that these are cupcakes that would be better served as an appetizer, or in miniature form. If you REALLY want to try making them you can find the recipe here
