My sweet friend did the sweetest thing and brought me a sweet treat. Thank you, Jennifer! She picked me up a chocolate cupcake (ah....chocolate AND cupcake) from Supreme Kakes. I have been in Supreme Kakes before to take a look around. The staff was extremely helpful and extremely friendly. The bakery has displayed many wedding and birthday mock cakes to peruse. They also offer "regular" food, too. So, you can stop in for lunch.
Oh yes, back to THE chocolate cupcake. The cake was notably moist with a subtle chocolate flavor. More cocoa than a rich ganache. The icing was not overly sweet, although by the end of my sampling, I felt I was tasting more shortening than butter in the chocolate buttercream. Nonetheless, it was a tasty cake. Oh, and there were chocolate sprinkles a top the icing. Always a favorite touch for me....the sprinkles give way to an additional texture of crunch with the moist delicate cake. And, a bonus topping of a delish white chocolate straw. Mmmmmmm!
I'm heading back to Supreme Kakes sometime soon to try another flavor...maybe white cake with vanilla buttercream icing this time?
