Malted Cupcake with Chocolate Flake Butter cream: Silky (meringue?) butter cream with flakes of bittersweet chocolate topping a moist dark chocolate cupcake. Neither the cake nor the icing was overly sweet and a definite malted milk flavor to the icing. Very good. Rating: ♥♥ 1/2
Caramel Popcorn Cupcake: This has knocked something off the top 5 list….I’m going to have to ponder for a bit to decide my new favorites. Incredible! The silky icing tasted exactly like caramel-covered popcorn; it was sweet and a bit salty. There was a bit of texture to it which seemed like maybe ground up popcorn. The cupcake itself was a sweet cornmeal cupcake with rich corn flavor. I wish I had bought more than one. Rating: ♥♥♥♥ Update 11/23: Confirmed from Dahlia bakery that there is indeed pureed caramel corn in the frosting. The caramel corn is made in house.
