Elvis Chocolate, Peanut Butter, & Banana Cupcakes1

1. The team you had been rooting for may have lost, a clear reason to lay in bed all day.
2. You’re inside a meals coma because you do not care about sports and ate all the bread dip at the party instead (me)! Excess fat naps are needed.
3. No one loves Mondays anyway.
I say we simply stay home and bake cupcakes.
Here are the facts. I had a good weekend. I wish to press rewind and bake more.
I got the theory for these cupcakes when I went on an exploration with a pal in Georgetown.
Majorly awesome cupcake center of the world apparently!
First we stopped at Baked & Wired This is where I had probably the most epic cupcake I’ve ever had in my existence. Proper name: THE MOST BEAUTIFUL Cupcake ON THE PLANET.
It had been a banana cupcake topped with peanut butter frosting and glazed with chocolates. Did you know that was Elvis’ favorite flavor mixture? (The Elvis Cupcake).
Next stop was Sprinkles!
I actually didn’t eat a cupcake at Sprinkles, but I’ve heard good things. This is the bakery that began the cupcake trend. The founder is normally even a judge on Cupcake Wars.
Sprinkles is pretty popular, but what about Georgetown cupcakes?
There is a line outside the door for these. People wait around in the torrential rain for DC Cupcakes. I’ve heard mixed evaluations. I didn’t eat a cupcake right here either, I used to be too full from The Most Amazing Cupcake ON EARTH.
I don’t believe Elvis was the only one who enjoyed this flavor mixture. These cupcakes had been devoured at a Superbowl party.
Let’s end up being honest… peanut butter frosting is definitely a success.
Hope you liked your weekend. Today make these!
