Cupcake a la Mode - Stuffed French Toast and ChocoLatte
Stuffed French Toast
It’s officially Spring! Many of my Spring weekends are spent with family…Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, bridal showers, baby showers, and weddings…these celebrations are full good food, good drinks, and good times! It’s a time where many of us enjoy Sunday brunches, with made-to-order omelets, waffles, bacon/sausage, and fresh fruit/veggies; and not to forget the all important mimosa or bloody mary…YUM! YUM! My next cupcake, and in this case, CUPCAKES (woot! woot!)recommendation comes to you in a timely fashion to help you celebrate all that is Spring. Drumroll, please…Stuffed French Toast and ChocoLatte cupcakes from Cupcake a la Mode! Originally from Kansas, I first wrote about Cupcake a la Mode in a September 2012 blog post. Since that post, Cupcake a la Mode opened up an additional location in Roseville, CA (off Eureka, next to Paul Martin’s American Bistro)…and I am so thankful! Seems like cupcakeries are starting the follow the “Siukola Girls”…what do you think Jenn?!...they definitely know their market! The Stuffed French Toast Cupcake is a vanilla cupcake filled with cream cheese icing, topped with a swirl of maple cinnamon buttercream icing, and dusted with powdered sugar. I love to dual icing on this cupcake; not only is this combo visually stunning, the taste is incredible…the cake is so moist and buttery. Like the Stuffed French Toast cupcake, the ChocoLatte cupcake also showcases dual-frostings – it’s a chocolate cupcake topped with mocha java buttercream and a swirl of French vanilla buttercream icing (like the milk foam of a latte), and a chocolate covered espresso bean on top (my nephew Jax always orders the ChocoLatte cupcake). Together, the Stuffed French Toast and ChocoLatte cupcake sounds like the perfect breakfast to me! During my most recent visit to purchase cupcake for my birthday celebration, I scored an amazing shirt that says “I run because I eat cupcakes!” Each cupcake is regularly priced at $3.25; however Cupcake a la Mode offers its cupcakes for $2 on Mondays! Also, this cupcakery is open late night (‘til 9pm) Thursday through Saturday…perfect for an after-dinner/after-movie treat. Check out the website for more details…http://www.cupcakealamode.com
