Buffalo Wing Cupcakes are a Sweet and Spicy Superbowl Treat

January 24, 2012

Bizarre buffalo wing cupcakes from the Cupcake Project are a sweet and spicy Superbowl treat.  Your two favorite Superbowl snacks: cupcakes and buffalo wings have come together in a synergy of American football flavors.  Admittedly, I haven't tried these daring cupcakes with blue cheese frosting but the blogger says that she created a new "crowd-pleasing Superbowl tradition."  So give it a go this season and tell me what you think.

Buffalo Wing Cupcakes with Blue Cheese Frosting
Recipe from Cupcake Project


For the cake:

1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sour cream
1 egg
1 cup flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
