The brilliant blogger Stefani from the intriguing blog Cupcake Project created these curious Parmesan Sour Cream Cupcakes. This cheesy take on the classic airy Angel Food cake makes for a slow-melting salty/sweet symphony. The delicate cakes are topped with a hefty helping of lush Raspberry Whipped Cream Frosting.

Although a Parmesan-spiked cake may sound strange, I have a funny feeling that the salty subtle flavor of the beloved Italian cheese would cut through and tame the sweetness of the cake and frosting. If over-the-top sugary treats make your teeth tingle, these Parmesan Sour Cream Cupcakes are just what the doctor ordered. The raspberry flecked frosting adds a touch of color to the confection. The addition of fruit adds a touch of tang to the cupcake's flavor profile.

Intriguing, eyebrow raising and terribly tempting, these Parmesan Sour Cream Cupcakes are a lush and complex indulgence.
