A friend told me a business here in Maine called Naughty Cakez. naturally i was curious to know more about this business. it sounded interesting. she makes cocktail-flavored cupcakes with REAL alcohol! hmm...before i could blog about these cupcakes i was going to have to try a sample (or two, or three). to my delight i was given four cupcakes to try.
chocolate raz: a chocolate cupcake infused with stoli raz vodka, filled with raspberry puree infused with stoli raz, topped with a chocolate raspberry frosting infused with stoli raz vodka. garnished with fresh raspberry. (pictured above)
margarita: a lime cupcake infused with triple sec and jose cuervo gold, topped with a lime buttercream frosting infused with tequila and triple sec. garnished with a sanding sugar rim and fresh lime slice.
pink champagne: a strawberry cupcake infused with pink champagne, filled with a strawberry puree infused with pink champagne, topped with a strawberry cream cheese frosting infused with pink champagne. garnished with a fresh strawberry slice. (pictured above)
mudslide: a chocolate cupcake infused with stoli vodka and kahlua, topped with a bailey's irish cream buttercream frosting. garnished with dark chocolate shavings.
these ain't yer momma's cupcakes! these are moist, sweet, flavor-packed fun cakes. while i couldn't really taste the alcohol (as much as i wanted to), the cupcakes were awesome. i loved the pink champagne the best and the frosting on the margarita one is killer. i want to spread it on my toast in the morning, oh yea! there are a bunch of other flavors like: irish car bomb, grape crush, white russian, sex on the beach, cosmopolitan, lemon drop and red red wine, just to name a few. they all sound so good.
these treats would be perfect for bridal showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties, grown-up birthday parties, and even weddings!
**they also make virgin cupcakes with no alochol.
