Velvet, Underground
Introducing Red Velvet Fried Chicken

UD - Red Velvet Fried ChickenFried chicken and waffles. So far, so good.

Okay, now remove the waffles. And insert red velvet cupcake. And now... brace yourself.

Allow us to present Red Velvet Fried Chicken, a Southern-fried classic that defies both categorization and logic, now available at American Cupcake.

At first glance, it’ll look like a heaping plate of leg, thigh and breast. But upon further inspection, you’ll see that the chicken has taken on a slight reddish hue. That’s because your precious fried bird has been pre-soaked in AC’s signature red velvet cake batter, then dredged in toasted, crumbled bits of red velvet cupcake before being dipped in a frying pan. You know, as one does.

And because a regular red velvet cupcake is topped with cream cheese frosting—and in case this thing wasn’t crazy enough—this poultry version is accompanied by a hefty scoop of cream cheese-infused garlic mashed potatoes.

Now, you should know that this fried masterpiece is not officially on the menu until Friday, but they’ll gladly whip up a dish if you ask for it, thereby giving you a two-day head start to get ahead of the masses.

When it comes to cupcake-fried poultry, you always want to stay ahead of the masses.
