A hungry girl's adventures in Cleveland and beyond.

Corks and Cupcakes

I am a huge lover of wine. A wino perhaps? But in a good way, not the carrying around a bottle in a paper bag kind of way. On it's own, it's a lovely sip. But when paired with food, it's transformed into something even more special. I've always loved red wine and chocolate but for some reason, never really thought about pairing my wine with cupcakes until I met Tammy at Miss WineOH. She was the one to really open up my eyes (and my mouth) to this tasty combo. 

For obvious reasons, this combo just works. Bite sized cake. Adult grape juice. Yes, please! The seemingly endless cupcake flavor combinations allows you to find the perfect match for your favorite wine. 

Emerging Chefs is putting their mark on this delicious combo at their upcoming event, Corks & Cupcakes™.

They will be featuring Margaret Mann and Raffaele Scettro of Tuscany Distributors and Lilia Lipps of Indulgence Cakes. There will be an array of Italian wines including white, red and even prosecco being poured with gourmet cupcakes to match.

Here's the details:

I keep trying to come up with combos in my head - caramel cupcake with prosecco? Would a peanut butter cupcake paired with wine be a like grown up peanut butter and jelly? What combos can you come up with?
