I LOVE CAKE. This is no secret. Rarely does cake take me by surprise. UNTIL… a wonderful friend of ours brought over Thanksgiving cupcakes that she picked up from a wonderful bakery in downtown Homewood–DreamCakes. There were several different flavors that took me by surprise… I’m just so used to the generic white cupcake with gross packed on icing. These were wonderful–beyond wonderful, there was a pumpkin one, then there was a gingerbread one, then there was… a ton of other good stuff. BUT there was an even better one that I had never EVER tasted before.
If we are grading on a 10 point scale where 10 is the highest then… this cupCAKE gets: 10 points for Creativity, 10 points for Appearance (before it appeared on my plate), 10 points for Flavor, and 10 points for Frosting : Cake ratio (one of the more important ratio’s in life) and a whopping 10 points for the Surprise Factor.
What kind of cupCAKE is this? A Peanut Butter and Jelly cupCAKE
What was the surprise? A jelly filled cupCAKE.
