I have a Halloween Cupcake challenge coming up. Two cupcakes have to be made. I am doing a pumpkin cupcake but I thought wouldn't it be cool to do a savory cupcake b/c I know no one will think to do that. I thought why not a buffalo chicken cupcake. Has anyone tried these? Are they good?
Sorry but that just doesn't sound very good to me! A+ for creativity though!
I have not tried them. To me, a cupcake is sweet and a non-sweet cupcake is a muffin. However, if I were making it, I would probably use a ranch dressing flavored corn muffin as the base and a swirl or filling of cream cheese.
AI seem to remember an episode of Cupcake Wars where one of the contestants put a piece of fried chicken on the cupcake. I don't think the judges liked it. Maybe you can find the transcript of that episode and find out what exactly was in that cupcake so you can get some ideas.
AHere is a blog post I found while searching for the Cupcake Wars episode. There is also a recipe for buffalo wing cupcakes. http://www.cupcakeproject.com/2012/01/buffalo-chicken-super-bowl-cupcakes.html
If you do make them post pictures and let us know how they were! I'm not brave enough to venture that far outside of the box.
AOh, and I found a video of a bakery that sells buffalo wing cupcakes. Guess they are popular there. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPeygtm_RkI&feature=youtube_gdata_player
Have fun and good luck with your challenge!
Thanks everyone for your input. I decided to go with maple bacon cupcake b/c I see more positive reviews for that particular cupcake and it's still different :).
AI have never tried but I did see an episode of The Chew where they had BBQ wing cupcakes. http://abc.go.com/shows/the-chew/videos/PL55125609/_m_VD55212838
