Still don't know what you're serving at your big Superbowl party on Sunday? Urban Cookies Bakeshop has you covered -- for dessert, anyway. One flavor represents San Francisco, the other Baltimore. So if you're a 49ers fan, hopefully you love dark chocolate, red wine, and cheese. Pulling for the Ravens? Classic combo of milk chocolate and peanuts.
Available through Superbowl Sunday, February 3, the Baltimore Smith Island Cake and San Francisco Chocolate Cheese & Wine cupcake flavors are $2.85 each or $33.17/dozen. The Ravens' tribute is based on Maryland's official state dessert, a moist yellow cake with super thin layers and fudgy chocolate icing. Urban Cookies fills it with peanut butter cream and tops it with milk chocolate frosting and crunchy salted peanuts. The San Francisco 49ers' flavor is all class: chocolate cake, cabernet glaze inside, and honey mascarpone frosting.
Serve the flavors head-to-head to see which cupcake comes out as the MVP at your party. To place an order, call 602-451-4335, or stop by in person to get a taste. The store will be open on Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., so you have until just before the 4:30 kickoff to pick up your treats.
As soon as the Superbowl selection is off the shelves, the Valentine's celebration officially begins at Urban Cookies. The family-owned bakery is going all out with lovely limited-edition cupcakes, including rose blossom (topped with red rose petals), chocolate lover (topped with a red heart), and pink champagne.
