Try their cakeballs! They taste amazing, way better than the cupcakes!
I love eating cupcakes and after starting this blog I was really excited to share my cupcakery reviews with you all. I also felt really lucky because I have had the opportunity to try cupcakeries around the United States and I hope to continue :) Sadly, I feel like the cupcakery portion of my blog has gotten the cold shoulder. When I travel, yes- I make every effort to go to as many cupcakeries that I can. Well, you know, just because I love you all so much ;) Okay....Okay....and so it is good for me to :) But when I come back-- I always get caught up in the game of catch-up.
I've decided to turn over a new leaf. Not a major leaf but a small cupcakery leaf. I am going to try my best to not only catch up on long over due reviews but to also write reviews as I try new cupcakeries. Fingers crossed!
|You can see the odd size difference in their cupcakes.|
Also- they cheat! What do I mean by this- I ordered Italian Cream. What did I get- an Italian Cream cake with a plain vanilla butter cream. The best part of Italian Cream cake is the cream cheese frosting...hello?! And then the hubby got pecan praline. And if you have had a praline- it has a distinct brown sugar, caramel taste- what did he get- a brown sugar cupcake with German chocolate cake frosting. I think they try to overestimate their abilities for offering different flavors but do not truly commit to making them and instead try to cut corners by re-using things from other cupcakes. Which really is just irritating. I would like to penalize them for this- but overall- when I ate the cupcakes I just felt "eh." And to be honest, none of my friends seemed overwhelmed by their cupcake either.
Update: I tried Cake Junkie's Cake Balls for Valentine's Day and my one year anniversary = AMAZING :)
