Cupcakes & Cupcake Chardonnay
Today we bring you a really sweet segment with a match made in Cupcake Heaven. Judit and Corina taste a creamy Cupcake Vineyards Cupcake Chardonnay wine from the Central Coast and pair it with a variety of tasty Swirls Cupcakes. We could not resist the temptation to do so! Can you get any sweeter than that?
A couple weeks ago we tried the Swirls Desserts Cupcakes at a fundraiser in Los Angeles. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup (Corina’s favorite), Marble Chocolate, Cinnamon Streusel Breakfast Cake, Red Velvet, Pineapple Upside-Down Cake (Judit’s favorite), and many more flavors to choose from. They also have “Cuptails”, and alcohol version with flavors like Grand Marnier, Apple Martini, and Rum Swirl.
With many flavors to sample, we thought this would be the perfect time to try the Cupcake Chardonnay for a double decadence. The Cupcake Vineyards are located on California’s Central Coast and source grapes from all of the world and the Central Coast. You can find the wines in stores like BevMo or on cupcakevineyards.com.
Swirls Desserts are located at the Nespa Cafe in 360 N. Camden Drive, Beverly Hills and also deliver in the greater Los Angeles and Orange County area. You can order at the shop or online on swirlsdesserts.com.
