Prohibition Bakery

Cupcakes + Alcohol. What a brilliant concept. Why didn’t anyone think of it sooner? Thank goodness for Prohibition Bakery, the “boozy cupcakery”! I decided to order a few for my birthday — and by few, I mean five dozen. :)  After a full-on photo shoot (please see the full photo album), I housed five in a row… and I’m not ashamed to admit that I got a little buzzed! These tiny cupcakes are packed with flavor and booze (some more than others, particularly the “Birthday Cake” — how fitting!)  Here’s what I sampled: Hot Buttered Rum (brown butter, rum, brown sugar), Pretzels & Beer (pale ale, Nutella, pretzel, truffle), Birthday Cake (lemon, vodka, Frangelico), Car Bomb (whiskey, Bailey’s, stout, chocolate), and White Russian (Kahlua, vodka, coffee). All were super moist and amazing, but I have to say that the Hot Buttered Rum was my favorite. I’m itching to try the Scotch & Cigar (molasses, tobacco, Laphroaig scotch), but it is only available in the store at their discretion and is limited to one per customer. After Lent, you know where I’ll be heading — over to Prohibition Bakery for more boozy cupcakes, that’s where!
