The Original Yummy Cupcakes Review

Location: Burbank, California
Prices: 3.25 per cupcake (1.65 per mini cupcake)
Rating: 1 out of 5 stars

While in California planning for the wedding and meeting with vendors, my sister took me to one of her favorite cupcakeries- The Original Yummy Cupcakes. She shared that their Fudge Yummy cupcake was delicious and that my brother really enjoyed them. Well it happened to be Father's Day- so we decided to get a few types of cupcakes for ourselves, my brother, and my father to celebrate. Well when we went, they ran out of the Fudge Yummy cupcake. My sister was so bummed. I did not get to try the infamous cupcake. So we decided to get Red Velvet with Chocolate Cream Cheese Ice Cream, Chocolate Covered Macaroon, and Chocolate on Chocolate (I cannot remember the "Yummy Name").  I've been working really hard on taking well photographed pictures, however, I only had my iPhone while at my parents home- forgive me in advance.

I gave The Original Yummy's Cupcakes a 1 out of 5 stars. And given that my sister raved about it, I was surprised to give it the rating that I did. Also their website shares that they were voted one of the top cupcakeries in Los Angeles through City Search (and there are a lot of cupcakeries in Los Angeles- so again I was quite surprised). Though they did not have Fudge Yummy Cupcakes, I was still excited because they had some interesting things, especially the Red Velvet Cupcake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting. Sadly when I tried the cupcakes, a little piece of all of them- it was absolutely awful. I feel horrible for saying- but they were just gross (to be blunt).

Mini- which we got for my niece so I did not try this one

The cupcakes were moist and the frosting to cupcake ratio was good (except for the chocolate chocolate. The look of the cupcakes were a hit and miss. Some were cute, like the Chocolate Covered Macaroon and some were sloppy like the Red Velvet. Also, the store does have a VAST array of flavors, so for those of you who like to try different things- this would be an interesting place to go. And it limits me in reviewing this cupcakery since I have not tried all of the flavors (but then again, I do not really have that chance at any of the cupcakeries I visit). But in the end- regardless of variety, frosting ratio and moistness- once you bite in you will be turned off immediately. Sorry to my sister but save your $3.25 and go to one of the many other places in Los Angeles- this place is a fail. Yelp reviewers rated Yummy Cupcakes a 3.5. So I guess I just did not feel the same way.
