A Kahlúa cream sports a slight booze edge under whipped cream and cream cheese frosting. It’s rich, while that same descriptor sums up a cacao-potent chocolate sundae cupcake with a tiny caramel hint. Lighter and arguably lovelier are the lavender-lemon and blackberry Champagne flavors. The former zings with sour lemon essence, though the lavender’s sadly mute in this batch (needs more house-made extract). But the latter’s a study in perfection, with true fruit taste and a remarkably clean Champagne note in the buttercream frosting.
