Sprinkles Cupcakes recently announced the return of the Flaming Hot Cheetos Cupcake, and we had to stop in for a taste. (Click here to see the announcement of this savory-sweet cupcake’s return!) But if you think this was a straightforward experience, prepare for a plot twist!
The first thing you’ll notice about the Flaming Hot Cheetos Cupcake is that it looks flaming hot. Those unnaturally bright red Cheetos are pulverized and used to coat the white cheddar frosting beneath. There is NO escaping the Cheetos or the subtle heat they bring to the cupcake.
