Cupcakes just for grownups

kytofu cupcakesI have come to love looking forward to my Foodzie tasting box at the beginning of each month, and all the little nibbles and gourmet noshes contained therein. A few weeks back, I opened my box to such an amazing treat: Mini cupcakes in very adult flavors.

I had heard of Kyotofu cupcakes,
because they get a lot of buzz around NYC, but I had never bitten into
one of these moist little gourmet cakes until just now. Subtle, delicate
flavors like Matcha Green Tea and Miso Chocolate are a welcome change from that traditional cupcake flavor: Lots and Lots of Sugar. While I haven’t tried the Chocolate Souffle, that, by all accounts, is the one to beat.

They come so beautifully packaged, they’re an awesome hostess gift or
happy birthday token for a friend far away. As long as that friend is
over 18, with a refined palate. Hold the Betty Crocker frosting. –Liz

    I’m fairly new to Cool Moms and love the Cool Mom Tech too! I like this post because not only do I get to learn great things about being a mom, you include great things about being a grown up (often that side of things is forgotten). Thanks for all the great hints, laughs and leads on wonderful products!
