Two for Tuesday ~ Fall Cupcakes

salted chocolate caramel cupcake from sprinkles

The above is a Sprinkles flash flavor cupcake ~ salted chocolate caramel. It’s part of their astrology series and this one is for Libras, though I don’t discriminate by star sign and will nom up any of them that look good. I wasn’t sure about this one though, as I’m not the biggest chocolate fan. I KNOW, RIGHT?! But it’s true. Most of the time, I prefer other flavors. Yet the salted caramel cake was so unbearably tempting, so I gave in, as you do. I’ve had a salted caramel cupcake from Sprinkles previously, but I don’t recall the cake being quite this delicious, so fluffy and moist and caramelly. The frosting was excellent too, due to its luscious, creamy dark chocolate goodness, with a teensy bit of salt sprinkled on for extra noms. However, I must be honest in my reviews: I was disappointed in the blob in the middle. Mine didn’t look anything like the image above and wasn’t the least bit “silky.” It was a lump of horribly bitter chocolate that added nothing good to the cake or the frosting. This would have been an excellent treat otherwise.

Pumpkin spice latte cupcake

Zomg! Sprinkles pumpkin spice latte zooms right to the top of my cupcake faves. I saved this treat for breakfast, so it was a tiny bit stale, a condition I happen to enjoy in cake. As soon as I opened the box, the wonderful aroma of coffee wafted out because thatโ€™s what the frosting is made of. Yum! I miss coffee so much. The cake was loaded with pumpkin flavor, and I even enjoyed the fluffy marshmallow filling (there wasnโ€™t a ton of it, which was a good thing as it would have displaced more cake). The frosting though was completely out of this world on the deliciousness scale. Fab!!!

Onward to winter cupcake concoctions!

  3. The first one sounds like it would be so amazing if only the blob was as good as it looks in the picture!
