Every true Beer Geek has attempted to make a stout chocolate cake at least once. (How did that work for ya?) At a bakery in Roswell, Happy Hour Confections is going beyond just adding beer to their recipes. This culinary genius has created tempting treats that highlight the distinct flavors of the featured beer!
During my visit to the bakery, I was introduced to a few delightful treats ..
Vanilla Porter Cupcakes: Breckenridge Vanilla Porter baked inside, filled with a touch of sea salt and Vanilla Porter caramel filling, then topped with buttercream frosting.
Lemon Hefeweizen Cupcakes: Cake and buttercream frosting, with a refreshing taste of lemon, featuring Mother Earth Sunny Haze Hefeweizen.
Honey Orange IPA Cupcakes: The zesty hop flavors of Odempsey's Inukshuk IPA paired with fresh orange and honey in the cake as well as the buttercream frosting.
Dark Chocolate Stout Truffles: OH YES! Ghirardelli dark chocolate ganache infused with O'Dempsey's Your Black Heart Russian Imperial Stout topped with cookie crumbs.
I didn't sample, but sounds amazing ..
Scotch Ale Cheesecake: A new York style cheesecake that has been infused with Monday Night Brewing’s Drafty Kilt. It’s topped off with a Scotch Ale Raspberry Sauce.
My most pressing question was, "How do you find your inspiration?".
