Groom 4.0 (read the back story for more details) has selected these Piña Colada cupcakes as his pick for one of their wedding cupcake flavors (he gets one and Bride 4.0 gets one). “Is there anything you would change about these Piña Colada cupcakes?” I asked him after he’d finished it. “I just want there to be lots more of them,” he replied with a grin. His wish will be granted because there will be over 100 Piña Colada cupcakes at his wedding!
As my friend Andrew (of Church of Burger/Pizza fame) notes, these cupcakes aren’t just moist, the inside is almost wet due to the juicy pineapple bites scattered throughout the cake. These Piña Colada cupcakes are so close to the real deal that Andrew pointed out that the Piña Colada cupcakes would be the perfect cupcake to eat poolside in Las Vegas.
