Chocolate Stout Cupcake inspired by Pike Brewing Company
Seattle, WA – Tuesday, Feb. 7th, 2012 – Trophy Cupcakes and Party today announced its partnership with THE PIKE BREWING COMPANY to create “the World’s Best Chocolate Stout cupcake”. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Trophy will launch its newest Stout Cupcake, now fortified with a generous amount of Pike Extra Stout. Trophy has added Pike’s Extra Stout to its award winning Valrhona chocolate cake recipe and is also whipping up batches of Extra Stout Caramel, a recipe created by Trophy’s Founder, Baker and Party Maker, Jennifer Shea. The Stout Caramel is blended into Trophy’s ultra-creamy buttercream which tops the Chocolate Stout Cupcake…and if that weren’t enough, the cupcake is drizzled with a generous amount of Extra Stout Caramel.
“I am especially excited about our Chocolate Stout Cupcake this year” said Trophy Cupcakes and Party founder and co-owner Jennifer Shea, “It’s an honor to be working with such a legendary, local and family owned business. Pike Extra Stout is my all time favorite Stout with its hints of chocolate, licorice and espresso; it’s the ultimate stout for our delectable Chocolate Stout Cupcake. Our ale cupcakes have always been a hit with the guys…now they can have their pint and eat it too”! According to Charles Finkel, founder and owner of The Pike Brewing Company, “though stout, black as midnight, is sometimes thought of as a manly drink, women are often our biggest fans; I’m sure they will be lining up for it at Trophy Cupcakes locations. Stout and chocolate are a sensual combination.”
