Friday is cupcake day at the Mudhouse–which is a coffee house on the downtown mall. I think it’s the best of the coffee houses there, and surprisingly there is no Starbucks on the mall.
Yes, that little bit of frosting is shaped like a chilli pepper because there is cayenne pepper in the chocolate frosting. I’ve had a spicy hot chocolate before (Jacque Torres, NYC, Dumbo location), and it’s good. It tastes like chocolate with a chaser of spiciness, wierd, but interesting and good.
I like the coffee better at Shenadoah Joe’s but the Mudhouse coffee is very respectable.
