Chocolate Jalapeño Cupcakes from Over the Rainbow Cupcakes.

Over the Rainbow Cupcakes  
The ancient Mayans are known for a number of contributions to modern society, but none is more cherished than the combination of chocolate and chili peppers. Over the Rainbow Cupcakes’ Chef Roman Blas has crafted his own take on the ancient indulgence by creating a Chocolate Jalapeño Cupcake. It boasts a dark cocoa jalapeño base, chocolate buttercream, and is topped with a fiery burst of jalapeno. One bite will send your pulse racing.

The Palms Café
Warm, gooey, and moist, The Chocolate Moten Lava Cake at The Palms Café is a cocoa eruption. It’s served with vanilla crème Anglaise to cut the sweetness, but it’s as amazing as the cake it accompanies.
