Behold: the chicken wing cupcake

That's brown sugar sprinkled on top, apparently.

Update: We tried them -- and they're... different.

Colonie cake shop Coccadotts is now offering a savory chicken wing cupcake.

Yep, you read that correctly.

From the shop's Facebook page:

Here it is! Go wild with our savory Chicken Wing cupcakes! All the goodness of a typical party platter, fitting in the palm of your hand. With a buttery corn bread base and bleu cheese frosting, the only thing that makes these better is the amazing chicken wing on top!

The store says in a comment on its FB page that the cupcakes will be available this Friday through Sunday for pick up -- or by call-ahead order. Also: "Trust us, they are better tasting than you think!"

Perhaps it was only a matter of time before these two great handheld snacks were united. The idea seems to have originated -- or at least gained popularity -- with Stephanie Polluck, who writes a blog called the Cupcake Project. As you might imagine, the internet then didn't quite know what to do with itself.

That looks very unappetizing.

I'm not a fan of trends or being twee with baked goods anyway.

If AOA somehow finds some of these in their possession, I wouldn't be opposed to trying one. Even though it looks absolutely hideous, my curiosity is very close to its peak.

Hwarf.

It's nothing but a stab at getting publicity. I can't see them as being practical unless you eat them right at the bakery- how do you reheat one of these things.

A wise man (who posts here) once said "For the price of two cupcakes I could get a whole BOX of doughnuts!"

Come on, you have to take this seriously. It's a complete, nutritionally-balanced two-course meal, for goodness sake. And it's a cupcake!

We can all thank Coccadotts for jumping the shark and officially ending the cupcake craze (thank god).

Isn't a savory cupcake basically just a muffin?

with a tagline like 'Trust us, they are better tasting than you think' you know it has to be good!

Ichiban should put that next to the sushi pizza on their menu...two other foods that should never share the same plate much less sentence...

Awesomedude: This is tangential to the purpose of the post, but I would like to point out that Sushi Tei has a "Pizza Roll" on their sushi menu. It's not at all what you would think. It has various colored and flavored roe on top, no true elements of pizza, and is shaped more like a sandwich than a pizza. It is fantastic.

Although I think the city is best served by having the state decommission and demolish this section of highway, if it is to be, then a couple things to consider. First, a big challenge is integrating the trail with Broadway along the exit ramp that feeds B'way from 787.The second is covering the cost of maintenance, not only of the linear park, but of the framework holding it aloft. ...
