The Perfect Summertime Cupcakes from Carousel

Barbeque season means burgers, ribs, and hotdogs galore! But a proper BBQ is not complete without a delicious and easy dessert! Cupcakes by Carousel has all your summer sweet tooth covered. 

Cupcakes by Carousel offers a plethora of fabulously flavored cupcake creations.  But a few of them absolutely scream summer.  My choices for summer are the S'more Cupcake, the Key Lime Cupcake and the Banana Split Cupcake!

The decadent S'more cupcake features vanilla cake filled with a wonderful fluffy butter cream, that's dipped in chocolate ganache, and topped with a heap of marshmallow fluff and graham crackers.  As if that wasn't enough, the cupcake is  then drizzled with chocolate sauce.

The Key Lime Cupcake is an option on the other end of the flavor spectrum. This tangy cupcake features vanilla cake, infused with freshly made key lime pie filling, topped with key lime flavored butter cream & sprinkled with candied lime zest.

And what's summer without ice cream? For the Banana Split Cupcake, Cupcakes by Carousel has transformed the classic ice cream sundae, into a festive cupcake full of the familiar flavors generations have enjoyed.  The cupcake features vanilla cake filled with tasty strawberry banana custard, topped with vanilla butter cream, chocolate syrup & rainbow sprinkles.
