So I had the day off yesterday. Rare but wonderful none the less.
A couple of weeks, okay, months ago, a reader made a comment on our blog with regard to whether or not there was such a thing as a spicy cupcake. At first we were shocked by two things 1) someone actually read and was interested in our random cooking/baking/life ramblings and 2) they were compelled enough to write back. So, thank you!
After milling over the question of whether or not spicy cupcakes could work we came to the conclusion of…why not? I mean we put bacon with bananas and cheese and that was good so why not make some delicious spicy cupcakes? So Nicole, this one is for you.
What you see above is in fact a spicy cupcake. I mean we are talking guajillo chili powder, paprika and some white pepper. As for the icing its a spicy honey buttercream. The cupcake still has its sweet side but after you swallow a bite you get that warm back of the throat feeling you get when you eat a pepper. Delicious!!! Don’t get me wrong this thing isn’t for everyone but if you keep an open mind, I bet you’ll like it.
I’m all for breaking the rules and stepping outside of the lines when you can. That’s what is fun about cooking and baking. I mean you can totally go against the grain and do something crazy, original and different and the worst thing that happens is it tastes terrible and you scrape it into the trash and move on. Where else in life can you do that?
Moral of the story, be bold and different, try new things and get a little crazy sometime… you’ll most definitely like what happens.
Oh, and if there are any other readers out there, which I hope there are, give us a challenge. PLEASE!!!
