Cocktail Cupcake Happy Hour
Kickass Cupcakes in Somerville
We ticked off yet another event on our foodie calendar on Monday with the Cupcake Cocktail Hour at Kickass Cupcakes in Somerville. This month they featured three varieties.
The "Mudslide"was a chocolate cupcake filled with whipped cream and topped with Kahlua frosting and chocolate shavings. Decadently rich.
The "Peach Daiquiri" was a rum and triple sec tinged vanilla cupcake with sweet peach frosting.
The "Lemon Drop" was a lemon cupcake dunked in Limoncello with lemon frosting and lemon zest.
Don't be scared away by cake so soaked in booze it's like a wet sponge. The cake was perfectly moist in each case and not overpowering of liquor taste. The winner for us was the peach version with its subtle, sweet flavors. It just seemed a perfect balance.
