For my pre-birthday celebration, I decided to head to Foran’s Grand Trunk (Detroit) for some drinks. Nastassia surprised me with cupcakes from Just Baked:
Chubby Hubby (pictured on left): Moist yellow cake stuffed with fudge icing, topped with peanut butter buttercream then rolled in chocolate covered pretzels. Oh my! The peanut butter buttercream is rich and delicious and the chocolate covered pretzels almost have a toffee like texture and taste. Awesome!
Neopolitan (Pictured on right): Moist devil’s food cake stuffed with strawberry buttercream then topped with vanilla, chocolate and strawberry buttercream, dusted with Hershey chocolate shavings then finished with a Hershey’s chocolate candy bar. Simple, yet satisfying. The buttercream trifecta is the perfect compliment to the deeply chocolatey devil’s food cake. Perfect for those who have a hard time making up their minds!
Appetizer’s go great with locally brewed beers:
Edamame Potstickers @ Foran’s Grand Trunk: Crispy potsticker shells wrapped around edamame (Soy Bean). Served with a sweet Asian dipping sauce. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but knowing Grand Trunk I should’ve expected nothing, but the best. Seriously delicious. Hundreds of edamame pop in your mouth as soon as you bite into the golden fried shell. (OK, a litter exaggerated, but it’s packed full of flavor). The Asian sauce is a thick and sweet pool of heaven that sets this appetizer over the edge. Try em!
Thanks to everyone that came out 🙂
Thanks Nastassia for the talks and treats ❤
