Cupcakepalooza!!

This past Friday, I finally got to host my long awaited Cupcakepalooza!



Thanks again to Duncan Hines Frosting Creations House Party
for letting me host a night of tasty fun!



After a late return home a quick baking of partial batches of 3 different cupcakes/brownies,the fun began!



Of the 12 flavors available, the ladies and I selected 8 to sample.

The flavors were:
Chocolate Almond
Cinnamon Roll
Chocolate Marshmallow
Mint Chocolate
White Chocolate Raspberry
Cotton Candy
Caramel
Strawberry Shortcake

 The flavors we didn't sample:
Bubble Gum
Cherry Vanilla
Mocha
Orange Creme



Instead of making full cupcakes, I decided to make mini cupcakes and brownie bites.
Knowing we'd be trying 8 frostings, a full size cupcake would be too much!


It got to the point where we even used half the mini cupcakes instead of a full one.

 There were some favorites, and there were some disappointments.


In the end, we voted on each flavor.

The winner...Mint Chocolate!
 For mint, this flavor was right on!  Not too strong, not to weak.  Just enough.
Nice job, Duncan Hines!

We gave each flavor a score of 1 {yuck} to 5 {YUM}!

The rest of the results in order of most favorite:

Mint Chocolate:  25
Cinnamon Roll:  24
Strawberry Shortcake:  23
Chocolate Almond:  20
White Chocolate Raspberry:  17
Cotton Candy:  13
Caramel:  13
Chocolate Marshmallow:  11

Now a look at my plate...


I didn't even mess with the Cotton Candy.  
Gross.

Chocolate Marshmallow....it needs more marshmallow flavor.
To us, it tasted like regular chocolate.

Caramel...it was just wrong.
We all had a different taste other than caramel.  Someone even mentioned coconut.  YUCK!

White Chocolate Raspberry....you need a little more flavor.
It was a hint, but a little more flavor would have been lovely.


Duncan Hines...why don't you have a
Peanut Butter or Peanut Butter Chocolate?
That would be delicious!

 If you want to add a little fun to your cupcakes, definitely try the
Duncan Hines Frosting Creations.
You'll have some great flavor, as well as potentially fun colors!
