Who would have thought that the chicken wing cupcake would become a national phenomenon? It has become so popular, in fact, that it could quite possibly become the party treat of the 2012 Super Bowl.
How did the chicken wing cupcake gain popularity? You can thank Coccadotts Cake Shop in Colonie, N.Y., near Albany. The cupcake was made in honor of Super Bowl 2012.
I was thinking about the Super Bowl. What goes with the Super Bowl but chicken wings? And I said, 'Oh, a chicken wing cupcake, Rachel?' And I tried five or six recipes, and the last recipe when I was ready to call it quits. I think we kinda nailed it on it, said owner Rachel Coca-Dott.
The bakery makes its chicken wing cupcake with bleu cheese frosting and cornbread cake, topped off with a juicy chicken wing.
Although the thought of a chicken wing cupcake may make some stomachs churn, the idea is truly genius. After all, Americans are expected to devour 1.25 billion wings on Super Bowl 2012 weekend. Why not give a fresh take to a classic Super Bowl treat?
Coccadotts is currently taking orders for its chicken wing cupcakes and all other treats on its official Facebook page. Alternatively, you can call the store at 518-438-4937 to see if there is still time to order.
