My name is Angie. I'm a wife and a mother of two kids. I work full time as an electrical engineer but deep inside I hold a passion for baking and cake decorating. I have a blog called Crumbs & Yums (http://crumbsandyums.blogspot.com/) where I try to document my little baking adventures!
Recently, I saw a post from Two Sugar Babies about looking for volunteers for a cupcake spy dossier so I immediately jumped into the challenge. I mean, what a better excuse to go try cupcakes... Right???
We have lots of bakeries in the Dallas area but I wanted to try one that had less of the traditional flavors and more of some creative ones -no bacon on this one, sorry guys! So for my cupcake challenge I did some searching and I came across The Cupcakery. They have two locations in the Dallas area so I went to the one located in Frisco. Since t-ball practice got canceled last week, I took the whole family and made them participate in this little challenge with me -they didn't require a lot of persuasion either ;)! So let me share with you some lovely pictures and our whole experience...
The Cupcakery is a family owned store with 6 locations in total -2 in the Dallas area. They specialize in gourmet cupcakes made with the finest ingredients. Some cupcake flavors are available only on a seasonal basis while others are brought back depending on popular demand.
Their cute little store!
I'm sure their cake stands look fuller than what I'm showing but we went there right before they close at night... Something called "work" got on my way HA!
Doesn't it look delicious?? I'm already drooling while I type this post LOL!
This is the flavor my kids picked... Honestly, can't go wrong with strawberries but that's just me.
So here are our final 4 choices... Strawberry shortcake, orange with chocolate icing and way in the back are coconut with chocolate icing and coconut flakes, and cinnamon.
Doesn't it look yummy? I barely had time to pay before I was able to snap a picture and taste the strawberry one. Let me tell you these flavors were FANTASTIC! And honestly I've to go back for more of the orange one -it remains me of my wedding cake which was orange marmalade and I can buy it in small portions ;)
So my hubby and I kept the last two flavors for us, you know, for once the kids went to bed. This cinnamon one was my hubby's favorite out of the 4 cupcakes we ordered. The icing was delicious (almond), soft and creamy.
I love coconut! So as soon as I saw this cupcake I knew I had to try it and it did not disappoint at all my friends. It was wonderful and the chocolate was a great compliment.
Overall, I had a fantastic experience experience. The cupcakes are bit more than Sprinkles (we have one here too) but I personally feel they are worth the money. All the cupcakes were delicious and I'm telling you that orange one was just phenomenal -can you tell it was my favorite one? :)
Thank you Two Sugar Babies for allowing me to participate in your Cupcake Spy. We had a great time participating... And if you are near to one of the 6 Cupcakery locations, please go and check it out. I think you are going to love it as much as I did!
