Two Little Red Hens

My roommate spoiled me by picking up this baby the other night. I think it is (appropriately) called the "Death By Chocolate" cupcake from Two Little Red Hens. It is difficult to see the actual size of this cupcake via the photo above, but let me just say it should just be called CAKE! It was so ginormous and so heavy that if it weren't in the traditional cupcake shape, you would undoubtedly call it a piece of cake.

I read a critique of the above "cake" and one of the things this taster didn't like was the icing but that was my favorite part! The critic said that the icing was too thick but I thought it was appropriate for the size and type of cake it was. I had to eat it a day after receiving because I had already ate a few cupcakes that day (trying to behave) and the cake was still moist. My one complaint, aside from the size and $4 price tag, was that it had a chocolate pudding filling. Honestly I am getting tired of this filling nonsense. I bought a cupcake, not pudding! I want to eat the cake, not some surprise filling inside, you know? Sigh. And it only seems like this trend is picking up. I am already over it.

All in all, the "cake" was very good but I can't say it was good enough to warrant a second visit. I'll keep Baked at the top of my favorites list as they serve true, delicious cupcakes at a very reasonable $1.75 price. :)

Please do look into that.

James asked me the same question today. It's not on the list because it is not a bakery. I did a post about it and I'm intrigued but I'm nervous at the same time. Have you been? Is it good? I've never heard anything about either their burgers or their cupcakes and if they were both bad, I don't know if I could handle all the disappointment at once.
