Strawberry rosemary or garlic, but I'm guessing that WD-50 probably offers up something WAY weirder. Fun contest!

I made a chocolate cupcake+avocado icing before. It was pretty darn good! Avocados are used a lot in sweet Asian desserts so I am use to the flavor but some of my taste testers were iffy on it. HA HA. Thanks for hosting this fun giveaway! Hope I win :)

I'd like a cupcake with an amaretto flavor.

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterCarol

I've always wanted to try a chocolate caramel and bacon cupcake--I think it might be pretty good. :)

I had a pink lemonade cupcake complete with pink lemon glazed frosting... AMAZING!

Thanks for the giveaway =)

I haven't had any too-crazy cupcakes (although I'm open!)
My friend and I made chocolate stout cupcakes! Well, they were supposed to be chocolate stout but we just used regular beer. Anyway, they were AWESOME!

I am dying to try a champagne cupcake with some whipped cream and fresh strawberries!!

November 5 | Unregistered Commenterwizibuff

I dunno why but that maple bacon combination sounds heavenly. I really haven't had too many crazy flavor combinations yet.

November 5 | Unregistered Commentercupcakerator

Grapefruit cupcakes are great!

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterCaroline D

If I could find a cupcake with bacon on it I would love to try it :)

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterDiane

I wish I could try unusual flavors, though the "usual" are always reliably good anyway. If I could try any, hmm, well your chai cardamom sounds good! :)

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterSandalola

So technically, this wasn't a cupcake, but a bundt cake, but I think it should count because it's all cake. Anyway, it was a white chocolate-golden beet cake. Yeah, one of the worst things I've ever made.

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterHannah

Wow, so many great suggestions on the comments! I haven't had any unusual flavors yet, but I know I would love anything with bacon. Yum.

November 5 | Unregistered Commenteryen

Just cake, not cuppie: strawberry corn.

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterChou

Maple bacon was odd for me at first but now i love it!

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterKristin

Mexican hot chocolate with chili powder.

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterKate

I've made chocolate chipotle cupcakes, and purchased salted caramel ones...heaven!!

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterAlice

This isn't very exciting, but I had a vanilla cupcake with mint frosting that was very good, and unexpected. I know, I know...boring. I would love to try a cupcake with bacon involved.

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterJen

Interesting cupcakes? I can't say I have eaten anything too weird. Although I would be totally willing. Veggies, spices, any of that. Maybe I should do a Curried sweet potato cupcake with a coconut frosting. Hmmmm.....

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterGretchen Noelle

I ate a margarita cupcake once and it was delicious. I'm still trying to figure out to to replicate the taste!

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterSarah Bisher

I had a passionfruit cupcake once, but that's about as exciting as it's gotten for me.

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterDana

I think I ate an Horchata cupcake once, if not, I will be next week!

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

i was a judge in a local cupcake competition and one of the entries was a french toast cupcake with maple syrup buttercream topped with bacon. unfortunately it sounded much better than it tasted!!

the cupcakes i would love so much to try is by "whiskie bits" in oakland, california-- i've only seen her cupcakes online but the flavours sound soooo awesome. "heirloom tomato" -- heirloom tomato cake, lemon, mediterranean spices with Italian basil-lemon mascarpone cream cheese frosting.

WHUT! so awesome!!!!

I haven't tried anything too unusual yet... I keep eyeing the menu at Trophy Cupcakes for something different to try, though. I'm not adventurous enough to try making something unusual, in case I don't like it and am stuck with a 2 dozen cupcakes.

November 5 | Unregistered CommenterIvy

I would say that the most unsual cupcake flavor I've had was a S'mores cupcake - matcha cupcakes were normal, as were roasted vanilla matcha but this s'mores cupcake was something else. A cream-filled vanilla cake with chocolate frosting toasted marshmallow and salty graham crumbs on top - it was amazing!
