Each February Les Madeleines makes their Vegas, Baby! cupcake. It's a special cupcake that I long for all year.
Everything about this Vegas, Baby! cupcake is Valentine-sie and delicious. It's red and white and tasty throughout. Isn't it gorgeous?
Les Madeleines describes the Vegas, Baby as this: Vanilla cupcake with cinnamon red hots. Topped with cream cheese frosting and real white chocolate sprinkles.
It's the way adult Becky likes to eat her cinnamon red hots. Though I'm sure kiddo Becky would enjoy it just as much, in fact I'm sure she'd try to eat two to three in one sitting. Okay, maybe adult Becky gets tempted to do that too. #truth
The Vegas, Baby! is more than just a vanilla cupcake with red hots inside. It's quite the dessert, actually. I love to bite through the textured wall of real white chocolate sprinkles straight to the creamy, cream cheese frosting. The vanilla cupcake itself is buttery and light and melts in your mouth. Then different explosions of gooey red hots explode in your mouth. It's so fun to eat.
Oh, and if you that red hot gooey-ness gets stuck on your cupcake wrapper...you best not forget to lick/eat/bite it off. It's one of the best parts of the cupcake! :)
I love this cupcake. It's one of the best cupcakes I've ever tasted, and absolutely one of the best in all of Utah. It's only available for a limited time this month, actually I think just until Valentine's Day. So scoot your boot-tay over to Les Madeleines and buy a dozen Vegas, Baby! cupcakes...they are the ultimate Valentine's Day cupcake!
