Robicelli's does ChipShop!

Okay, are you guys ready for this? Deep-fried cupcakes. I am going to say it again, slowly. Deep. Fried. Cupcakes. Can it get better than that? Yes, if it's Robicelli's cupcakes. At the Park Slope ChipShop.

From Allison at Robicelli's:

"This weekend, ChipShop in Park Slope is offering DEEP-FRIED CUPCAKES! Try one of the three unique flavors created by the famous Robicelli's, dipped in batter, and deep fried to hot, gooey perfection. Flavors include:

"The Elvis" -- Moist Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Buttercream, topped with Brown-Sugar-Candied Bacon

"Sticky Toffee Pudding" -- Date and Brown Sugar Cake soaked with Brandied Toffee Sauce and Toffee Buttercream

"Car Bomb" -- Chocolate Guinness Stout Cake with Jameson Whiskey Ganache and Bailey's Irish Cream Buttercream"

I've never had a deep-fried cupcake before, has anyone else? What's your experience been like? Allison and Matt told me that they freeze them first, buttercream and all, and that when they come out of the tempura batter they are scrumptious.

CTTC 5th Anniversary Party!

Major bummer! Just went to the Chip Shop this morn all excited to get my deep fried cupcake on and they had NO CLUE what I was talking about. No deep fried cupcakes to be found anywhere :(

Hi Erica! Did you go to the Park Slope one? It's only at the Park Slope shop, not the Atlantic one. Let me know -- I want to tell Allison and Matt if there's a failure.

Thanks for writing in,
