Just the mere thought of a cupcake makes me crave one - yeah, I'm that addicted. Addicted enough that I left all of my baking supplies in another friend's dorm room just so I wouldn't be tempted to whip up a batch of my own famous cupcakes. And by famous I mean I do an extremely good job of reading the directions on the Pillsbury box.
When I saw this Buzzfeed post, I instantly clicked on it excited to see some well...interesting cupcake flavors.
For starters, any qualms about taste aside, most of these are miniature and adorable. I'd be lying if I didn't admit I Pined a few of them to my Pinterest 'so cute' board just on looks alone. But looks aren't everything, these ARE real cupcakes after all.
With that in mind, I'm hoping for a what I like to call 'chocolate pretzel effect': the salty and sweet of most of these bizarre combinations will work wonderfully rather than disgustingly. And I have a slight suspicion that not all of these cupcakes actually list 'cake' as an ingredient...
Here are a few of my favorites (mostly based on looks, but somewhat based on imagined taste):
How could I resist the pizza cupcake? The mini pepperoni? So adorable. Though I think I'd prefer mine with plain cheese.
The lasagna cupcake makes me instantly crave pasta. And cheese, more and more cheese...
Speaking of cheese? Mac & cheese cupcake. Yeah, I definitely have a craving today. But the bow ties are delectable looking!
The little chicken wing on the buffalo chicken cupcake says it all for me. If that's ranch dressing for frosting, I would just about squeal with excitement. So clever!
My ultimate favorite = the popcorn cupcake... I love popcorn almost as much as I love cupcakes. Will the two work well together? I'm iffy, but so so willing to find out.
I think it's time to go recipe hunting!
Lovelies, would you try any of these cupcakes? What's the weirdest cupcake flavor you can think of?
