Cupcake chicken a rare treat

SO you think you’re all cupcaked-out? Had enough of the trend, eh?

Well get ready for more because at American Cupcake, their red velvet is all the rage – on fried chicken, that is.

Yup, at this San Francisco-based eatery, chicken is marinated in red velvet cupcake batter (um, YUM), dredged in red velvet cupcake crumbs, and then deep fried. (We understand if you need to re-read that sentence.)

But wait, there’s more!

Given that red velvet cupcakes are traditionally smothered in that luscious tangy yet sweet cream cheese icing, American Cupcake thought it apropos to pair their crimson fried chicken with some cream cheese garlic mashed potatoes.

Though we can’t attest to how tasty – or not – this savory sweet sensation is, word on the street is that on its first day on the menu, it sold out within an hour – and you thought cupcakes were over.
