Our own Zach Lashway was joined in studio by Thais De Silva from Dia Doce Cupcakes and Joe Breslin from Whole Foods to discuss the wonderful concoctions of beer infused cupcakes! These delicious cupcakes were baked with the local Yards Brewery selections.
Zach tasted three different types of cupcakes:
- Lemon Cake cupcake with a strawberry rhubarb center and lemon frosting infused with the Yards IPA, which has citrus hops
- Banana Toffee cupcake with a vanilla bean cinnamon whipped cream paired with the Yards of the Revolution-Jefferson, which is brewed with a sweet honey flavor
- Flour-less Chocolate Cake cupcake made with real local coffee, dipped in a bittersweet ganache, and drenched with the Porter Ale, which has dark roasted coffee and chocolate flavors
The pairings were spot-on and Zach certainly enjoyed the Tuesday morning wake-up!
Want to try these tasty treats for yourself? The beer cupcakes will be featured at the Mile Post Pub at Whole Foods Market on Lancaster Avenue in the Devon Village Shopping Center tonight at 5pm.
