Best Food Masquerading as Another Food: The Meatloaf Cupcake
The Meatloaf Cupcake
Stone Creek Kitchen
465 Canyon del Rey Blvd., Monterey
You can’t swing a dead cat in Monterey County without hitting a cupcake place. What do you do if you like the adorable cupcake form, but have had it with too-much-frosting-meeting-not-enough-cake? Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls: The meatloaf cupcake. A spicy, flavorful chunk of traditional meatloaf, baked in a traditional cupcake liner, then topped with a lofty swirl of lush, buttermilk-infused mashed potatoes. A sprinkling of herbs on top mimic the sprinkles found on some cupcakes. It’s your meat, your spuds, and your illusion of desert.
