Pacific Whey Cafe was one of the locations chosen in the OC Register's Cupcake Challenge earlier this year. I had never even heard of this restaurant, but they sell cupcakes, so I had to check it out. Pacific Whey Cafe is located on the Crystal Court side of South Coast Plaza.
They offered two flavors of cupcakes--vanilla and chocolate. I chose the Chocolate Chocolate Buttercream. The cake was moist, but the frosting was different than any kind of frosting I have ever had on a cupcake. The frosting was very silky, almost like melted chocolate. It was similar to a drizzle that you would put on a chocolate cake. I am glad I had milk to complement this cupcake. It was richer than I expected.
Pacific Whey Cafe is located in Santa Ana at South Coast Plaza. They have the same hours as the mall. The cupcakes sell for $3.25. Their cupcakes are good for a quick fix, but not the kind that I crave.
