A year and a day later, we're wishing them a happy anniversary. Here's one we didn't see until recently that is pretty funny, by Big Sugar Bakeshop in Studio City, California, which was their daily special last April 29th.

Posted by Jenny Louw at 6:00 AM 0 comments

Um...WHAT?! Yes, this is a Mountain Dew and Doritos Cupcake and I'd like to say this was the only image I found of this concoction but it's not! This ultimate junk food cupcake has actually been featured as a dessert at the 4 Rivers Smokehouse in Florida, although their version looks a little more palatable. Now here's the big question...Would you try it?

Butter Lane Unveils New Cupcake Flavor

Posted by Jenny Louw at 10:30 AM 0 comments
Rachel and I stopped by Butter Lane yesterday to see co-owner Maria Baugh and try some of the new cupcake offerings.


Butter Lane




Butter Lane




Counterfolks Lauren Henry and Eric Hoop helped us out:


Butter Lane



We were there to try the newest flavor to the lineup, chocolate chip cookie dough!



Butter Lane




It's chocolate cake with cookie dough filling (baked in!) and cookie dough frosting.



Butter Lane


SO good!  The cake was standard chocolate cake but the creamy dough-y filling lent it some texture and "goo" and the frosting wasn't too sweet.

Maria says it's the cupcake the devil creates in his kitchen. Agreed!




We also tried the inside-out, a frozen cupcake treat:


Butter Lane



Cookie dough filling made it yummy and the frozen chocolate cake was moist and chewy. Rachel thought it was brownie-esque, and I agree. A cakelike brownie.







 Butter Lane

Here's a photo of Rachel taking a photo. Meta, huh?




Also new, frozen frosting shots.

Butter Lane


I double-dog dare you to eat a whole one.



Thanks Maria, for sharing the new flavors with us!
