By Sara Kennedy / Sunday Market

cupcake_500_0914Now you can have your cake and your Oktoberfest too.

Cupcake Royale’s fall lineup includes four flavors infused with beer, cider and brandy wine from local breweries.

The Caramel Brandied Pear cupcake is topped with buttercream that includes Pear Brandy Dessert Wine from Finnriver Farm in Chimacum.

Finnriver’s Apple Cider (made with Washington apples, of course) punches up the buttercream in the Tipsy Apple cupcake.

Elysian Brewery’s Imperial Pumpkin Ale is added to the buttercream on the Pumpkin Ale cupcake. And the German Chocolate Stout cupcake (shown) features cake made with 2 Beers’ Jive Oatmeal Espresso Milk Stout.

The flavors are available now through Oct. 31.

$3.75 each or $41.25 for a dozen
