Good Liquor-Infused Denver Cupcakes: Yours Truly Cupcakes

2012 September 28

Chances are you haven’t heard of Yours Truly Cupcakes.  Owner Tiffany Goodyear has been running the cupcake company full-time for about a year now, but its storefront at 30th and Larimer has only been open since July.  And when I say “open,” I have to qualify that, as the shop currently doesn’t currently keep regular store hours–it is only currently open “by appointment or by chance.”  But if you like cupcakes and you like alcohol, you should know about Yours Truly.

While Yours Truly Cupcakes offers “classic” cupcake flavors such as chocolate and vanilla, its specialty is liquor-infused cupcakes.  The Moscow Mule, for example, is a lime vodka cake with ginger buttercream frosting, and is infused with vodka and ginger beer.  The Irish Car Bomb is Guinness cake, whiskey ganache and Irish Cream buttercreamYou can even get a PBR cupcake, infused with–you guessed it–Good old Pabst Blue Ribbon.

While you’ll taste the flavors of the alcohols used to infuse the cupcakes, you don’t have to worry about getting tipsy from eating them, nor do you have to worry about the alcohol taking away from the sweet taste of what a cupcake should be.  Having tasted several of the different flavors, all I wanted to do was keep trying additional flavors–I wondered what a mojito cupcake would taste like; I wanted to have a margarita!

Click here for the full menu of flavors for Yours Truly Cupcakes, and be sure to set up an appointment if you are planning on placing an order or stopping by the shop for a tasting.  While Tiffany plans to open a storefront window soon, she’s still currently operating her business via orders in advance.
