Celebrating St. Patrick's Day, A Cookie and a Cupcake will be featuring a few cupcakes over the next couple of weeks. The featured cupcake today was an orange cake with chocolate buttercream filling and Guinness buttercream topping.
As is typical, their cake is a delight -- moist, with a prevalent orange flavor, one of my favorite types of cake. I have never had Guinness, so I cannot describe how closely the topping resembles drinking a pint, but it emanates a boozy scent and has a faint bitterness. The shamrock sprinkles add a pretty contrast.
According to their blog, upcoming cupcakes are green velvet, rainbow with gold coins, and Irish Creme. I look forward to trying all of them.
