I had been anxiously awaiting the arrival of my dainty mini cupcakes from Cupcakes Gourmet. When UPS arrived and I saw the return label, I actually squealed with delight! I ripped open the box, pulled out the box with these heavenly goodies. They were nicely packed with dry ice, to stay fresh. Cupcakes Gourmet uses all natural ingredients and no preservatives (a very good thing). Their cupcakes are freshly baked, beautifully frosted, fully decorated and flash frozen for optimal shipping results. They ship their cupcakes with dry ice to keep them frozen along their journey.
Now the hard part – I had to wait for them to defrost. I’m not very patient, and I wanted to immediately dive into these beauties. I had to put a note on the box too, so my family wouldn’t devour them while they were still frozen. Luckily, it did not take very long for them to thaw, and as soon as they were ready to eat, the carnage began. We each sampled the two varieties…Milk chocolate cake with vanilla-bean butter cream frosting, and Madagascar bourbon vanilla cake with chocolate butter cream frosting.
We were so pleased with Cupcakes Gourmet – they were delicious! They were decadent, but not too rich or heavy. Mini cupcakes are the perfect size when you only need 2 or 3 bites of gourmet dessert to finish off your meal. And, you can have 2 or 3 of them without feeling the least bit guilty! I highly recommend Cupcakes Gourmet for yourself or for gift-giving. I give them a big Thumbs up!
