Fried chicken cupcakes for National Fried Chicken Day (today!)

Yes, it's really National Fried Chicken Day in the United States, and yes, there are fried chicken cupcakes - more than one of them!

The Late Night Breakfast (Chicken & Waffles) cupcake is by My Delight Cupcakery of Ontario, California (via Flickr).

Our winner for Best Original & Best Overall at the LA Cupcake Challenge 2011.
It is a buttermilk based cake with undertones of vanilla & cinnamon, stuffed with fried chicken that was marinated 24 hours in a buttermilk & spice mixture, topped with a light & buttery maple frosting, more fried chicken, and drizzled with our special blend of syrup.
