January 8th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Across the country and around the world, cupcakes have achieved a level of respect they've long deserved. Creative pastry chefs dreamed up new and interesting flavors that brought attention to these little cakes, and the convenience of individual portions convinced cake lovers from coast to coast (and beyond) to both try new things and take these heretofore "kiddie cakes" a bit more seriously.
Trader Joe's Butterscotch Cupcakes were developed with holiday festivities in mind -- there's a little "gift" inside each little cake. Each cupcake features moist, butterscotch cake with a butterscotch/caramel pudding-like filling -- the "gift" -- topped with a butterscotch cream cheese frosting. (We're beginning to think this might take the cake for most uses of "butter" in a single Flyer article.) Each bite yields a bit of cake, a bit of filling, and a bit of frosting -- a trifecta of confectionary goodness. Enjoying these Butterscotch Cupcakes with a glass of cold milk or a cup of hot tea will enhance your experience even further.
We're selling Butterscotch Cupcakes in packages of four for $3.99, a terrific price for these classy cakes made with quality ingredients. You'll find them in our bakery section.
