When I was in high school I attended an info session for Johnson & Wales and heard that a graduate went on to be an official taste-tester at Ben & Jerry's. Clearly the coolest job ever! So I've kind of decided to be an unofficial taste-tester of the cupcakes in one of the cupcake shops downtown. Cupcakes are super cute and the flavors usually sound delicious, but sometimes the actual taste is overrated.
First up: the s'mores cupcake. The cupcake was chocolate chip cake, which was nothing special. It was a little dry and there were hardly any chocolate chips. However, the marshmallow graham cracker icing was delicious! The bites with both the chocolate ganache and the icing were definitely my favorite. I was also pleasantly surprised that the piece of graham cracker on the top wasn't stale and soft.
I doubt I would get this cupcake again, but I would love to get my hands on the recipe for that marshmallow graham cracker icing!
What's your favorite kind of cupcake? Happy Friday!
P.S. I did not end up attending Johnson & Wales. And I also don't have a super-cool job that involves free ice cream.
