Cupcakes and bambinos …

Does anyone know why cupcakes are associated with baby showers / parties? I’ve heard a few references and jokes made about the combo recently (ahem, Jen Brown et al) and am wondering about the duo’s origins…

In any case, I stumbled across the PERFECT cupcake recipe … sure to please those non-traditional moms (and dads) to be and anyone who savours their chocolate and beer: Kate’s Beer Geek Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Caramel.

Wow – wrap your head around that!

I think these would whip up nicely with a Hockley Stout or Kate recommends Rogue Mocha Porter, Lagunitas Cappucino Stout or Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout – all of which sound lovely as a beverage on their own!

Viva la Beer Geek Chocolate Cupcake!
