Project Poutine

Wow - its been a while! I do, however, have a yummy treat for all of you! 10 days ago (exactly), we celebrated my Fiance's (wow, that still sounds weird!) 30th birthday...I wanted to create something that I've never done before..something completely outside of the box...and here, the Poutine Cupcake Project came to life!

Project - Poutine:

For these cupcakes, I was going mostly for the look..I needed to make them look as close to poutine as possible! I started with my new vanilla sponge cupcake (which tastes super yummy by the way!)..added some vanilla buttercream and then got ready to "dress them.." The fries: hickory sticks...the cheese: white chocolate chips...and finally, the gravy....caramel!!

I wasn't quite sure how all these parts together would taste - I just knew that separately, they all taste pretty great! Here's how it turned out:

Needless to say, they were a huge hit and there were NO leftovers!!
