The 'Bakers Royale' blog put together a recipe for a batch of cupcakes that are inspired by classic carnival snacks. Although summer may be drawing to a close, it is never too late to indulge in delicious carnival treats. These cupcakes combine multiple carnival dishes into one sickeningly sweet confection.
The recipe consists of a chocolate cupcake base which has been infused with stout beer and instant coffee. The cupcakes are then topped with a rich chocolate buttercream frosting and drizzled with a sweet chocolate ganache. Finally, the carnival-inspired treats are finished with a topping of mini marshmallows and caramel popcorn. The cupcakes take inspiration from classic carnival snacks to provide a mixture of flavors that are both salty and sweet at the same time.
The decadent treats are perfect for late summer parties or early autumn celebrations.
