I was recently introduced to Sugar Rush Sweets & Bakery Treats by a family member who had received a few cupcakes at a church gathering. I had never heard of Sugar Rush Sweets before, so I contacted the owner, Stacy de la Vega, to arrange a formal testing of her cupcakes. I was surprised to find out that her company is based out of Yorba Linda, CA, my hometown.
I had the privilege of trying her red velvet, devils food, and white cupcakes. Let me first say that I have never had a cupcake taste so moist! Moistness makes a huge difference in taste for cupcakes. Thumbs up!
Second, all of the cupcakes were topped with "Sugar Rush Signature" butter cream frosting. Stacy let me know that she normally frosts the red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, but these particular cupcakes were part of another order that did not call for that. To me, the frosting tasted like a semi-whipped butter cream frosting. It was very tasty!
The best part was the surprise in the middle. Each cupcake was filled with a little bit of frosting in the middle (the red velvet actually had cream cheese so I was able to taste how wonderful that frosting was). I love cupcakes with frosting in the middle. Frosting is my favorite part and it can really make or break the cupcake.
Sugar Rush Sweets & Bakery Treats is a made-to-order bakery that doesn't only sell cupcakes, but cakes, cookies, and other baked goods. According to the brochures I have, the decorated cupcakes sell for $24 for a dozen ($2 each) and the desserts cupcakes (see below) sell for $30 for 15 cupcakes (also $2 each). For more information or if you would like to place an order, contact Stacy de la Vega at sugarrushsweets at yahoo dot com. You won't be disappointed!
