I recently returned from a week-long snowboarding trip to Utah. I got some great snow and was sad to have to come back to real life in California. The last time I was in the Salt Lake City area was over two years ago, therefore this was my first chance to check out cupcakes in Utah.
I got some great advice on where to go from Becky, blogger of Utah Loves Cupcakes. On my first day in Utah, I followed Becky's suggestion and went to Diva's Cupcakes and Coffee in Salt Lake City.
I loved the atmosphere of Diva's Cupcakes! Not only do they sell cupcakes, they also sell coffee, sandwiches, and soup. They also have several places to enjoy hanging out, including a library and an outdoor patio.
I met the owner, Gordon Wilkins and the pastry chef, Disa Cuellar while I was there. Gordon enlightened me of their best cupcakes. I tried Red Velvet, Gingerbread, and Chocolate. All of them had cream cheese frosting.
Cream cheese frosting is my favorite kind of frosting, which is why I really enjoyed these cupcakes! I had a hard time picking my favorite, but it ended up being the gingerbread. The cake was denser than a normal cupcake (since it was actual gingerbread) which made it more dessert-like.
On my way out, I noticed that Diva's Cupcakes has a drive-thru. I know this is not unheard of for coffee shops, but I have never seen one for a cupcake shop. Smart idea! Next time you are in the Salt Lake area, I would definitely suggest stopping by Diva's Cupcakes!
Between snowboarding every day and visiting family at night, I only had time to review one cupcake shop. I guess that just means that I might have to make another trip to Utah sooner than I thought.
