Chicken and Waffle Cupcake!

It's wedding week in the Chung household now and the family has all gathered to prepare for the upcoming Twin Sista wedding on Sunday. But as a special treat, my sista Melissa brought cupcakes from her favorite cupcake bakery in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The Salted Cupcake has been on my radar for several years since sista raves about how delicious their little cakes are. The bakery takes requests for their special flavors of the day so after scouring their menu, I asked for chicken and waffles. Other sistas put in their requests too and they actually fulfilled all of our suggestions. We also ordered passion fruit cheesecakeanimal cookietiramisupuppy chow and salted caramel vanilla bean. Each cupcake is $3.50 but are cheaper per cupcake if 6 or more are ordered.
What makes these cupcakes unique are the toppings. The chicken and waffle cupcake came topped with an actual mini waffle and a piece of fried chicken and the animal cookie was topped with a frosted animal cracker.
The chicken and waffle cupcake was a nutmeg buttermilk cake topped with a cinnamon buttercream frosting and drizzled with maple syrup over the waffle. Surprisingly, there were actual bits of fried chicken baked inside the cake. The actual cake and frosting were just okay but when eaten separately, the waffle and fried chicken were so delicious. Combined all together in one bite, it was just so-so and the nutmeg cake was too overpowering to taste the other flavors.

I had a few bites of the puppy chow and salted caramel cupcakes and they were pretty tasty. Overall these were fun cupcakes and really great eye candy.
