A little something to sweeten your Monday: Kickass Cupcakes in Davis Square is hosting its monthly Cocktail Cupcake Hour tonight from 5-7 p.m.
Nibble on free Zombie, Jack & Coke, and Blue Raspberry Fizz mini cakes — the Jack & Coke has a bourbon frosting, yum!
We also heard that the bakery's "free cupcakes for a year" contest ends this week. Suggest an original cupcake flavor with name and ingredients at Kickass Cupcakes or on its Facebook page and you could win a dozen cupcakes every month for a year. (Two winners will be selected.)
Here's an idea from Terra:
Name: The Boston Globe
Cake: Black and White Marble Cake
Icing: Red Buttercream
Garnish: Oreo Cookie Crumbles
Other: What's black and white and "red" all over?
And, one from Kim:
Batter: jalapeno cornbread
Frosting: Pimento Cheese
Other: deviled ham garnish
Not sure about that one... hmmm.
