Instead of baking a cake for Chris’s birthday this year we decided to pick out some goodies from a new specialty bakery called Kickass Cupcakes that opened recently in Davis Square. We definitely made the right choice. Why bake a whole cake with one boring flavor when you can pick up a 6 pack of gorgeous and original cupcakes to share?! Our unanimous favorite was the mojito which is a rum soaked cupcake topped with sugar cane lime frosting and fresh mint. While I really wanted to eat all six cupakes at once, we somehow managed to hold ourselves back, but just barely. From the top (left to right) we happily consumed:

Kickass!

  • A vanilla cupcake with chocolate buttercream frosting
  • The Super Chocolate (a chocolate brownie cupcake topped with bittersweet chocolate ganache and covered with chocolate shavings)
  • The much raved about Mojito
  • A chocolate cupcake with chocolate buttercream frosting
  • A Banana Cream cupcake (vanilla cupcake and custard, bananas, graham crackers, and whipped cream)
  • And finally Cinnamon Chai Pecan Sticky (a spiced up cupcake covered with gooey caramel pecan topping)

A rum soaked cupcake? Are you sure? I’d take the Cinnamon Chai Pecan Sticky cupcake over the mojito version any day!

Custard on cupcakes should be outlawed, by the way.

I would pick chocolate on chocolate. My wife picks vanilla with chocolate. 🙂

This has totally inspired me; guess who is making Mojito cupcakes this weekend.
I’m a little nervous about the frosting; I really don’t like buttercream style frosting but for the sake of the cakes I’m going to risk it.
