Vanilla Confetti cupcake
Size: A little bit larger than homemade.
Frosting: A lighter, sweet, buttercream. Some granulation. Light finish, no aftertaste. A nice amount, though frosting lovers may want more.
Cake: Mid-dense, very moist, and sweet. It has almond flavoring, which lingers lightly.
Notes: It did begin to crumble as I was eating it. It might be a tad sweet for some and if you don't like almond flavoring this is not for you. But it left a happy, smooth, sweet, taste in my mouth that I didn't want to wash away.
Overall: I will never find myself in the CWE again with out stopping by here if I can.
My dear panel member Wendylicious brought me a Carrot Cake Cupcake from the Edwardsville location. I would've taken a picture, but the commute was...less than kind, so imagine carrot cake, or check their website for a better pic. than I would've taken anyway.
Description: cream cheese frosting with regular carrot cake
Size: a little larger than homemade
Frosting: cream cheese, soft, sweet, and rich
Cake: very moist, semi-dense carrot cake, with carrot shavings and walnuts? (well some kind of nut, but that's my guess)
Notes: Carrot cake isn't a weakness of mine. (begins to border on stuff-in-the-stuff), but this was really good. Very rich though, I couldn't finish it, but not for lack of trying.
Overall: I wouldn't get this again (too many other flavors to try), but a carrot cake lover DEFINITELY would.
Description:Orange cake and orange
butter-cream icing. I don't normally mention decorations, but I may or
may not have a thing for gummy bears.
Frosting: Very mild orange flavor, sweet,
more orange color than flavor, very
slight granulation. When I saw it I feared there wouldn't be enough
frosting for the amount of cake. No worries, it was fine for us.
(though frosting lovers may want more)
Cake: very very moist classic orange cake, mid density.
Notes: Kind of reminds you of a MUCH better/fresher version
of those hostess orange cupcakes you may have had as a child…or last week. Does tend to crumble as you eat it.
Overall: The counte and I finished ours, but I like some of their other flavors better. Vegan Vic was SWOONING though.
Description: Vanilla/vanilla cupcake with coconut sprinkles on top. A bit larger than homemade.
Cake and Frosting: both very consistant with
The Cup's style, the frosting has a slight granulation, but it
disappears as you eat so you're not crunching on sugar granules. Simple
vanilla is the main flavor.
My aunt Toni, who is a MAJOR coconut fiend, wanted more coconut in the
cake and icing, not just on top. She says this is perfect for a "liker"
of coconut, but not quite enough for a "lover".
Overall: If you like coconut you’ll like this.
