Remember when I posted about the adorable cupcake pop I tried at Minneapolis's Cocoa and Fig? I forgot to update you on what was inside...take a look:
It was so delicious - the outside was a hard candy-like shell and inside was this wonderful peanut butter concoction. I was told what it's made of (mostly peanut butter with something else added) but I forget, but it wasn't Skippy-type peanut butter, but a thicker, more natural-tasting one, less salty than usual and the perfect complement to the outside. Highly recommended!
Here are some photos of Cocoa and Fig's cupcakes - they're in Nicollet Mall so you can shop and get your cupcakes at the same time. They told me the black velvet is their best seller.
Black velvet cupcakes
I ate these kindof in a hurry while walking around - the frosting is fairly buttery, for those who are into that. The chocolate was my favorite cupcake though I think the cupcake pops were my favorite thing.
See more photos in my Flickr set. You can also check out their blog for more information; they also do catering (sweets and food).
