Devouring Houston: Exploring Houston One Bite at a time

Houston has so many incredible food establishments...from sumptuously designed restaurants to fun storefronts selling gourmet cookies. From Mexican Food Carts to the Best BBQ in the World. And...I want to expore it one bite at a time.

Sprinkles Cupcakes

So thought I'd check out the special Holiday flavors at Sprinkles Cupcakes.  I'm usually a loyal Crave Cupcakes fan, but Sprinkles called my name today.

First up, Eggnog Spice.  Oh. My. Gosh.  This little cake was stupendous!  Spice cake with an eggnog cream cheese frosting.  And, you know, ordinarily I do not even like cream cheese icing.   But, this was delicious.  I truly meant to eat just a few bites, and yet, I devoured that puppy in minutes!  It was THAT good!  It was moist, too.  I super highly recommend the Eggnog Spice.

My other Cupcake Christmas Confection was the Vanilla Peppermint.  Usually, I am a humongo fan of anything peppermint, but this cupcake left me a little disappointed.  Although a really beautiful looking cupcake, the Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla cake was dull.  Boring.  Dry.  Not much flavor.  The icing a not-much-more-exciting vanilla peppermint.  I'd stick to Peppermint Bark or a York Peppermint Patty if you need a mint fix.  Go for the Eggnog Spice cupcake instead!  Yum-o!

Both Flavors, and Chocolate Peppermint, available through December 24th.   Merry Christmas!
