How do they taste?The cupcakes themselves have a subtle, yet detectable, flavor of freshly brewed coffee. The coffee flavor is noticable, but not overpowering, and is accompanied by nice nutty and caramel-like flavors. The white fondant used to form the ceramic part of the coffee mug is sweet and vanilla flavored. The icing is made with coffee and milk, and so it tastes like a sweet dessert latte.
Eaten together, the cake, fondant, and icing present a tantalizing blend of coffee, milk, vanilla, and caramel. The cupcakes are sweet, but not too sweet. The best way to know how they taste though is to make some for yourself!
