Friday night we ate dinner at Whole Foods. They have such amazing food, not to mention a great bakery! I was so excited to see cupcakes there that I could barely eat dinner.
I chose the chocolate cupcake out of a possible two flavors (vanilla and chocolate). This one was shaped like a cow (I think), so it was almost too cute to eat.
Result: So good!!! The cake gets a thumbs-up for moistness. The frosting was a vanilla and chocolate buttercream frosting. I wanted to get a cupcake with more frosting on it, but this one actually had the right amount. Their cupcakes were larger than the average cupcake, maybe even a little bigger than Sprinkles. That was the only downside to this cupcake...I couldn't take a full-size bite!
I was planning on only getting one cupcake until I spotted these Red Velvet Towers. I didn't realize they were cupcakes until I looked closer. The Red Velvet Tower is made of two layers of red velvet cake and two layers of cream cheese frosting. They are smaller than an average cupcake. Result? Great! This is the perfect size for a "cupcake," not to mentioned it tasted great! I know it is not a traditional cupcake, but it has all of the same characteristics. The price is the same as the cupcake ($3.25), which made it a little more expensive than I would have liked, but other than that, it is the perfect snack-size dessert!
Whole Foods is the great place to go for a late cupcake craving, since it is open until 10:00pm. Although there are only two flavors of cupcakes to choose from, plus the Red Velvet Tower, you will not be disappointed!
