You know I can't go out to Seattle without a visit to the Yellow Leaf Cupcake Company, right?? We stopped in on a Thursday afternoon after popping into Top Pot for some iced coffee, and I was excited to check out the offerings for that day.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, for my health), there weren't too many "crazy" flavors by this point in the day, so I just got one cupcake - the Dulce de Leche Cheesecake cupcake.
Since the top was completely covered in frosting and a crumbly topping, I wasn't sure if this would still be a cupcake, or an actual cheesecake on the bottom.
As you can see from this photo, it's a little of both! The main portion of the cupcake is still cake, but there's a buttery crust on the bottom just like a cheesecake. The cake was mostly vanilla-flavored with some strong caramel notes. The frosting was much thicker than the other cupcakes I have tried from here, but still delicious. Yet another delicious cupcake from Yellow Leaf :o)
