Earlier this month I traveled north for the Divas 1/2 Marathon in San Francisco, CA. I was there for work, but decided to run the race too. I'm not trained for 1/2 marathons right now, so this turned out to be a fun race....which means I wasn't so strict about what I ate before the race.
I was planning on stopping by Kara's Cupcakes in the city when we went in, but instead I stumbled across a new location in Burlingame, CA. It was meant to be!
I picked up a few minis so that I could try several flavors. The flavor I wanted the most, my favorite from last time, was Banana Caramel. Sadly, they were out. Instead I got Kara's Karrot, Raspberry Dazzle, Vanilla Chocolate, and Chocolate Velvet.
I remember how delicious the cream cheese frosting was, and it didn't disappoint me again. The Karrot cupcake was delicious, as well as the Vanilla Chocolate. The raspberry one was the biggest disappointment, as the frosting had no flavor and had the consistency of Crisco. My favorite of the night was one of my favorites from before: Chocolate Velvet. The chocolaty frosting was silky, making it perfect for not being too intense.
I was a little surprised that the minis were $2 each. That seems a bit high for a mini. The regular-size cupcakes are $3.25, which is more reasonable.
The only thing better than eating cupcakes is eating cupcakes with friends.
