Frosting Shots

Frosting...isn't that the best part of a cupcake? The latest trend to hit bakeries is frosting shots. Instead of the calorie content of a whole cupcake you can satisfy your sweet craving with a shot of frosting. The delectable shots are presented in paper cups or shot glasses and cost about 75 cents to $1.50 each. Can I please have three...or would that defeat the purpose?

I think it's a great idea for a sweet snack, and a fun way for bakeries to try out new frosting flavors. What do you think - will you be serving frosting shots at your next party?

Helen said...

When making any kind of cake I usually always make too much frosting on purpose, just so I can eat it afterwards!

Jan said...

Yummy post.

as long as it's real butter-cream and not some ghastly margering or lard-based icing... and i'd rather not have something so neon that it's going to stain my lips!

Man frosting is GOOD! How can you be disgusted?

That Girl Designs said...

Well, I have to say that the cake part is actually my favorite part! I like very little frosting, but the idea is fun and I'm sure there will be lots of fans out there for this one.

Yummmm! Frosting is the best part. I wonder if you can upgrade from a shot size to a full cup though?!

Karen said...

Umm, best idea ever??? I think so.

I'll take three please. In pink.

Jules said...

My name is Stephanie, and I am a frosting addict.

I am hoping/fearing that a bakery like this will move within a 50 mile radius of my home.

Now, you must excuse me, I have to go make some frosting!

limonana said...

well, when i was a kid, my mom would buy the icing in a can. i would eat some with a spoon and that wasn't nearly as good as what you've go there. i love icing and my dentist loves the boat i probably bought for him from all the cavities. love those icing shots. happy weekend!

Fifi Flowers said...

Have FUN on your trip! Great bag! And please sir... may I have a frosting shot! I NEED a pick me up... that frosting just might do it!

amy said...

im getting a sugar rush just looking at them!

Chris said...

Yes, it looks good, but where's the chocolate? I always eat the frosting out of those little Duncan Hines tubs. Give me one of those shots and I'll be a happy woman!

fly tie said...

well, too much sugar for me, but i really like the picture, ha ha! :-)

michelle said...

YUM! The frosting is my favorite part, I usually eat all the frosting and then throw away the cake.

Raina said...

Holy crap, I've been talking about this for years! I eat cupcakes upside down to save the best part for last. Hands down the best idea since sliced bread and movable type.

Lecia said...

I love it! I regularly eat cupcakes with my two little boys, and my youngest and I always eat off the frosting and ditch the cupcake. Great solution - frosting shots.

Girl Japan said...

What a great idea, try out new frosting's yet not wasting anything = )

Hey Harriet said...

Frosting shots? Seriously? Wow! I'll be on the look-out for those being served at my local bakery!

Clelia said...

Wendy said...

I have heard about this but dont think that I could do it! I dont like a lot of frosting, too sweet!

Camille said...

I'll take a double! I love all the colors! How much fun is this?!

mary said...

OK, call me weird...but I don't like frosting! Cake, yes. And a TINY bit of frosting, sure. But too much actually makes me a little queasy.

With that said...I know there are a lot of frosting fanatics and this seems like a fun and unique idea! And...I love how pretty they look!

Lauren K said...

My mouth is watering!

aimee said...

YUM! YUM! i'm making mini cupcakes right now. i may have to skip the cake and go directly for the frosting... as long as it's buttercream, that is :)

heidi said...

Sheer genius!! My kids only eat the frosting anyway ;-)

shi(f)t said...

i'm a carb girl...give me that chocolate cake:)
