Chicken And Waffles: NoRA's Latest Cupcake Creation Inspired By Breakfast

A breakfast dish becomes an unlikely cupcake at NoRA in Middletown

You can find chicken and waffles on breakfast menus, dinner plates, in sandwich form (thanks, Corey's Catsup and Mustard in Manchester) and even at IHOP these days. But never in a cupcake, until now.

Leave it to the creative cake team at NoRA Cupcake Company, home of artistic and imaginative (and often booze-laced) treats, to come up with the pairing. Their new chicken and waffle confection is a cinnamon sugar buttermilk cake injected with maple syrup, topped with maple cream cheese frosting and garnished with a miniature waffle and a small piece of fried chicken. The tower of sweet and savory is further drizzled with a maple ganache.

The cupcakes are available by special order only, $6 apiece with a minimum of four cakes. NoRA is at 700 Main St. in Middletown. 860-788-3150,
