I vote for crunk mainly because I’m not quite sure what it is…isn’t there a song with that word in it (I think it’s R&B or something…)…if so and you go with the crunk, you should totally include it in your post. : )
I’m going to have to vote caffeine on this one, because I have a friend who is a Starbucks ADDICT, and she’s been wanting to make cupcakes as well. I may likely be outvoted, but a girl has got to try! :)
I know it sounds like I drunk…oops freudian slip… drink alot but I really don’t. Well now. I use to in high school and college but now not so much. I am not a big coffee drinker either. Ironically crunkcakes and caffeine seem to be my cupcake asthetic though. Weird huh?
Starbucks addict huh? Oh man. Tell me about it. I have more friends that are addicts than not. My friend keeps asking me to make a caramel macchiato inspired cupcake. Don’t worry I’ll eventually make the Starbucks inspired one too. Just trying to gauge which one I wanna do first. ;)
Well I won’t have time for it this weekend, but I’d love a starbucks-inspired cupcake since I’m not supposed to have alcohol in the dorm (even though my boyfriend and I snuck in a bottle of wine to go with dinner this week…I feel so evil.) That and I love Starbucks!
I’ll also be making Tres Leches cupcakes tonight or tomorrow with him since I had to go with more generic flavors for his birthday cake (apparently a lot of people dislike tres leches, so I made home-made funfetti and chocolate cake instead. The party was a hit and tons of people showed up!) I also found my extremely small and prized stash of 7 party-nut-cups, so I’ll be able to make at least a few cupcakes. One question though: Did you really use 5 eggs in the batch you made?
Sneaky sneaky! Oh who am I kidding? I’ve snuck alcohol in my dorm many times. I think its some rite of passage in college. LOL. Yup! 5 eggs for the tres leche. The eggs give the batter structure b/c it binds the other ingredients together when it bakes up. I think the cupcake needs the extra support for the milk mixture you’re adding. Let me know how they turn out!
Sucks that we both lost. :( (I entered my Cinnamon Granola Cupcakes after I read your post!) I think we might have had a better chance if we had entered earlier.. but such is life! I say crunkcakes- totally original!
I love the idea of doing what someone else suggested…amaretto mocha! Or what I love to get at Cold Stone 1/2 amaretto 1/2 coffee? But if we have to pick just one I say get Crunk on us! Thanks for getting me excited to go drinking on a Friday…I can officially say you put the thought in my head! (hehe)
Although I am a Starbucks addict, I’d like to see a combo… something like a “Girl Scout Cookie.” I just thought of this b/c my husband came home with about 7 boxes of girl scout cookies. It’s been a while since I’ve actually ordered one… and I’ve seen these made a couple of ways, but the one I remember is made of Irish Cream, Coffee Liquor, and Peppermint Schnapps. I’ve also seen it with the Peppermint Schnapps, Creme de Cacao, and heavy cream… or for those who like it hot, Peppermint Schnapps and hot cocoa. But however you mix it, it’s still yummy.
Holy yum! I remember “girl scout cookies” from my college days. But we did it ghetto style. Peppermint schnapps shots followed with a chocolate milk chaser. Memories… I am definitely adding that to my list of must-bakes. Thanks for suggestion!
