Let me first say that cupcakes for a $1.50 is a sugary sweet deal indeed. Prices that low would bring a smile to anyone's face.
For this tasting I tried the Ooey Gooey (chocolate cake with chocolate almond buttercream) and the Bob (yellow cake with chocolate almond buttercream). The almond buttercream certainly makes for a new and unique flavor and it stood out to me a great deal more on the yellow cake.
Both cupcakes had traveled a great distance in paper bag before being devored and I was pleased to find that the cake itself was still fluffy and moist. But when compared to each other I have to say that I liked the Bob cupcake better. The buttercream wasn't too sweet (unlike Magnolia, Buttercup, and Billy's which are waaaaayyy too sweet) and the almond flavoring gave it a nice new ring to a traditional cake. The Ooey Gooey however seemed like any other chocolate cupcake. It really wasn't anything special. And with a name like Ooey Gooey I was expecting it to be rich in chocolately goodness but it just felt plain. The almond buttercream seemed lost among the chocolate. It stood out on the yellow cake but I could barely taste it with the chocolate.
I would never turn down a cupcake from this bakery and I would certainly stop in there again but is it my absolute number one cupcakery? Unfortunately not. Baked still reigns supreme in my heart!
