I had a taste for cake last Monday, however the bakery I usually purchase sweets from was C-L-O-S-E-D! Waaaaagh! I didn't feel like baking a cake, so I pulled myself together and went to Plan B. The lesson for today is, always have a Plan B :) If I couldn't have cake (in my best Marie Antoinette voice), then I was going to have CUPCAKES! So I drove to this cute little place called The Kupcake Factory (Uptown location). They're locally owned with 4 locations and their specialty is gourmet cupcakes (specialty cakes upon order). I couldn't believe, I hadn't been here before. I flung the door open to the shop and my eyes began to do a happy dance, because this is what I saw!
The Kupcake Factory is Sweet!
Don't you just want EVERYTHING? I picked up a dozen assorted (don't worry, I had plenty of help eating them) and was going to rate each cupcake individually, but there was no need. ALL of the cupcakes were scrumptious! Each cupcake is HUGE! They're like 2 cupcakes in 1! Cut 1 cupcake in 4's and 2 people can eat it. The cupcakes were moist, fresh and topped with just the right amount of frosting. Every cupcake tasted exactly how it was described. Eat a wedding cake cupcake, it tastes like wedding cake. Eat a goin' bananas cupcake, it tastes like bananas. Eat a snozzberry...Ooops! No snozzberries...That's Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory >.< but they do have raspberries! I want to give a sweet shout out to the young lady that worked that day. It was my first time there and she explained all the flavors, hours & pricing. She was awesome. She knew her products! Also, thank you management for being OPEN on a Monday! You satisfied my sweet craving. For my readers & friends, here's a closer look at the cupcakes I purchased :) Happy Cupcake, I mean Monday!
