50% of American adults say they watch cooking shows occasionally or more. And with companies like Netflix not disclosing their viewing figures, this percentage is likely even higher.
Cupcakes used to be simple. But people love them so much there are now enough unique cupcake flavors out there for a three-course meal.
From the sweet to literal savory, some of these cupcakes have taken the confectionery world to whole new heights.
Different Cupcake Flavors Go the Extra Mile
It seems like every month a new baking show appears on TV inspiring more people to pick up a whisk and try something new.
But some bakers go above and beyond to create new recipes to satisfy the tongues and tummies of people everywhere. These eight recipes below are sure to give you some ideas of your own.
1. Samoa Girl Scout Cookie Cupcake
The Girl Scouts on average sell 200 million cookies per year with some flavors dominating the demand from customers.
Normally, people are happy with sharing (or not) a box of these tasty treats and leave it at that. But one baker decided they wanted more out of their cookie and came up with this ingenious idea.
Taking a traditional vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting, they then sprinkled on toasted coconut and crumbled Samoa cookies on top.
And for extra decadence, they added a final drizzle of melted caramel.
2. Maple Pecan Cupcake with Actual Miniature Buttermilk Pancakes
Another case of someone unhappy with an already delicious meal.
Having the iconic American pancake breakfast with maple syrup is great. Having a cupcake for dessert after is even better. But a combination of the two? Welcome to the future.
