How many potato chips can you fit on top of a cupcake?

I actually can't even tell how many potato chips are on this cupcake! I can tell you it's a chocolate caramel potato chip cupcake "topped with fresh whoop and smoked sea salt" and it's by The Sugar Cube, a food truck in Portland, Oregon that I won't have time to visit this trip but that looks amazing. Via their Facebook page. Find out more at thesugarcubepdx.com and be on the lookout for their cookbook, The Sugar Cube: 50 Deliciously Twisted Treats from the Sweetest Little Food Cart on the Planet, out from Chronicle Books in a few weeks.

Official description:

This covetable cookbook is a greatest-hits collection from Sugar Cube, a tiny pink food cart in Portland, Oregon, that is thronged daily by hungry hordes craving voluptuous sweets intensified with a spike of booze, a lick of sea salt, or a “whoop” of whipped cream. Sugar Cube founder and baker Kir Jensen left the fine-dining pastry track to sell her handmade treats on the street. Recipes for 50 of Kir’s most enticing cupcakes, cookies, tarts, muffins, sips, and candies are made more irresistible (if possible!) by 32 delicious color photographs. Sassy headnotes and illustrations that resemble vintage tattoos liven up this singular boutique baking book.
