You are WORTHY… of these cupcakes! To celebrate the God of Thunder in October’s #MYTHICAL Loot Crate and Loot Crate DX, I whipped up another tasty treat that SCREAMS Asgard. (But tastes much better.)
These cupcake creations pay homage to the colorful “Rainbow Bridge” (AKA the Bifrost) with layers and layers of fluffy, vanilla rainbow cake! Even Heimdall can’t keep his eyes of these cupcakes!
I must say, making miniature versions of Mjolnir was the highlight of my week. These cupcakes don’t only LOOK Godsent, they taste heavenly! You’ll surely be shouting for ANOTHER before you even finish your first one.
*Warning. Consuming back to back cupcakes can cause an upset stomach. Would not recommend doing. Again.*
