These are 16 of their different flavored cupcakes available. I've never been to the Cupcake Shoppe, so I was very intrigued by all these flavors, as well as the additional personalized cupcakes on their website gallary. However when I went on Saturday, there were probably only 5 flavors available - that didn't put me off one bit because I was curious about the cupcakes and would have purchased any one.
I purchased Curious George and Pretty n' Pink. Curious George was the birthday cupcake and I believe it is chocolate cake with banana butter cream. I treated myself to the Pretty n' Pink, a chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream.
However, what was disappointing was the service and the actual cupcake. The fact that I broke TWO umbrellas and spent $2.50/cupcake plus tax, my expectations were much higher. Reviews online were correct that service is medicore because the girls working behind the counters were unfriendly. Also, even though the butter cream topping has a very buttery texture (and not put on sloppily like some other places), the cupcake itself was not moist. I thought by going earlier in the morning I could score myself some moist cupcakes, but they were slightly disappointing. Even my sister could make more moist cupcakes!
To be honest, I think sometimes cupcakes can be a hit-or-miss, given the time of the day or on a certain batch made. So I think I will give The Cupcake Shoppe another go, on a.... sunnier day.
