We tried almost everything they had on hand (which was not much). Starting with the Vanilla Cupcake with buttercream icing (but it wasn't buttercream, it was white icing. Which yes, is different). The darker blue icing was very bitter, due to the food coloring. The lighter blue icing was better. But, a paltry amount of frosting. I mean, cover the cupcake top for goodness sakes! The cake itself was somewhere in between super dry and not so moist. Not off to a good start. Sigh.....
Next up, the Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcake. The dark chocolate cake had chunks of mint chocolate inside (yummy), but, the cake was very dry. And, I was expecting the frosting to be mint flavored. I mean, it's green! (More like lime green to me, leading me to a craving for a Key Lime Cupcake, but I digress). The frosting was indeed neon green, but not mint flavored. The Italian Cream Cupcake was also super dry. It was actually almost hard when trying to cut into it. The coconut was nicely roasted and had nice flavor, but this cupcake did not impress me. Finally, the Banana Split Cupcake. This little cake was the moistest of all we sampled. The banana icing was a nice balance with the banana flavored cake. This cupcake was our favorite -- but, at this point, I'm not sure how much of a recommendation that is.

We also sampled the Sugar Cookies. Cute and tasty. These treats were maybe the best of the bakery.

I'll drive far and wide for good food. But, I will not drive to Frosted Bakery again. Sigh....
