From Canned Pasta Cakes to Potato Chip Cupcakes

 - Aug 29, 2014
Savory cupcakes are quickly becoming a staple in the baking world as a food fusion pairing that mixes unlikely salty ingredients into the traditionally sweet batter. The end product is usually a culinary feat that reinterprets the look, form and taste of a traditional cupcake.

Cupcakes are a super simple dessert item that can easily be infused with a wide variety of flavors. The savory component can be added to the cupcake recipe in a wide variety of ways from the icing, toppings to batter itself. Snacks like chips, pretzels and even beer have all found their way into some deliciously innovative cupcake recipes. Completely rethinking the cupcake form is another way foodies are turning this spongey dessert savory. Creating cupcake-shaped tacos, macaroni and cheese, and spaghetti dishes are a few examples.
