Finally! I delightful bakery full of goodies to satisfy my major sweet tooth.
When I first read about this shop Cupcakes, Muffins, and More in the QC Times, I thought two things. "I want to go to there"(30 Rock reference...anyone?) and "she stole my idea for a cupcake shop in the QC!"
So of course I had to rush down there (207 W. 4th st) to try it out. We showed up around noon and waited in a decent line while patrons bought breakfast burritos, muffins, and brownies. There are a couple little tables where you could sit and visit while you eat. I was busy staring at the cupcakes and trying to decide what to get. In hindsight I should have just bought a dozen or two because the cupcakes were only 75 cents each... yes 75 CENTS! A single cupcake at Hy-Vee is like 3 bucks.
I picked out a cherry and a peanut butter creme. Aren't they cute?
Peanut butter filled
So sometimes cherry flavored stuff tastes like cough drops, but this was sooo not yucky. The cake part tasted like angel food cake and the frosting was very sweet. It was even filled on the inside with more frosting. what a delectable surprise.
The Peanut Butter Creme was chocolate cake and ganache with PB filling on the side. It was also very good, but I prefer lots of frosting.
If I worked downtown I would stop there everyday for a muffin breakfast and cupcake lunch. Nutritious, no, but delicious, yes! I decided to celebrate by showing off my cupcake hat and shirt and sweet tooth tattoo.
I will be back to try out muffins and cookies!
