What's a ton funner than climbing a mountain, and many times more delicious?
The Blue Mountain Huckleberry Cupcake from Cupcake Royale, that's what.
That's right: it's September, and it's time for a new flavor of the month. Here's what they have to say about the new variety:
Our fine friends over at Foraged and Found collect these delicate little woodland wonders and bring them to us fresh and direct. Baskets of sparkling huckleberries, packed with sweet Pacific Northwest goodness, fill our bakery in anticipation of being baked up into the perfect cupcake. So, that's we do with them, and we top it off with a huckleberry buttercream that's as pretty as it is delicious.
These are blue mountain huckleberries. They're a little different from the ruby red gems you might be picturing. They're a bit sweeter, akin to a very fancy wild blueberry...only better! They make for one super delicious cake, and one beautiful hue for a buttercream!
Which just goes to show that a sugar high is better than, say, a Rocky Mountain High, any day of the week.
You can find this flavor all month long at all four Cupcake Royale locations; for directions and hours, visit cupcakeroyale.com. Stay updated on their daily goings-on and the progress of their upcoming Bellevue location via Twitter!
