What is this messing about with cupcakes in aid of??
Figs and blue cheese? Peanut butter frosting with bacon? They're just not making my mouth water like a good old vanilla cupcake!
Well you can get such delights from Chaos Theory cupcakes (brought to you by Bleeding Heart bakery) and More Cupcakes
Michelle Garcia, co-owner of Bleeding Heart Bakery, also co-opened Chaos Theory Cakes, where you can order a cupcake like the Oaxacan, a dark chocolate infused with cayenne and black pepper, along with cinnamon, and topped with a bitter chocolate ganache dusted again with a bit of cayenne.

This is the only way Garcia, who's been offering her savory version of the treats since October at Bleeding Heart, would offer cupcakes and a wonderfully over-the-top line at Chaos Theory Cakes, 2961 N. Lincoln Avenue.
