“Dia Doce makes them exclusively for this pairing. There are always new flavors, new combinations of sweet and savory, said co-owner Carley Mack. “Each wine is carefully paired with the cupcake. We give you a menu and a staff member walks you though the pairing.”
That includes a red velvet cupcake with wine-dipped bing cherries and camembert frosting paired with Cabernet.
Mack says each flight includes five wines made entirely with Pennsylvania grown grapes and five cupcakes.
“We have a chocolate cake with a fudge center. It’s dipped in smoked bittersweet panache with chocolate-dipped smoked marshmallow on top,” she said. “That is paired with our Chambourcin.”READ MORE: Dozens Of Mom-And-Pop Shops In Manayunk Prepare For Small Business Saturday
