Meet Swirls Cupcakes

Swirls Cupcakes
saved the day! I was in need of some birthday treats for my husband and was short on time. Just hours before leaving for the birthday get-away, a box of Swirls Cupcakes showed up at my office.

The first thing I noticed was how heavy the box was. I knew these were no ordinary cupcakes, they were heavy-duty! I'd heard a rumor that these cupcakes were better than Sprinkles. That's a tough name to live up to, but these cupcakes looked like they could do it!

You should have seen the look on everyone's faces when I showed them the cupcakes that were coming along with us on our trip! We were sugared-up before we even got in the car.

Not only did we eat the cupcakes on the drive to Lake Mead, we also ate them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I couldn't stop eating them, they were so good! The cake was moist, the frosting was creamy (not fake or too sugary), and the flavors were delicious.

I was excited that each cupcake was a different flavor. I didn't have a cheat sheet so I determined the flavors by tasting all of them:

Pina Colada, Red Velvet, Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate Chocolate, Banana, Boston Creme, Vanilla Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon Swirl, Cherry Delight, Apple Strussel, Butterfinger

My favorites: Banana, Apple Strussel, Pina Colada, and Boston Creme. I am not normally someone who likes fruity cupcakes, but these cupcakes really won me over. The Banana cupcake had creamy vanilla frosting on top of banana bread-like cake. I was really bummed that I had to share it with five other people.

I overheard my brother say, "I think this frosting is the best I've ever had" (talking about the Red Velvet). He also really enjoyed the Chocolate Raspberry and Butterfinger.

My husband favored the Chocolate Chocolate. He has always liked chocolate cupcakes best!

There wasn't much left by the end of the weekend. My brother devoured the crumbs on the drive back home.

So who is Swirls Cupcakes and how can you get ahold of their cupcakes?

Swirls Cupcakes is a gourmet cupcake company that provides cupcakes for special events and delivers cupcakes to businesses. I spoke with the owner (Barry) who informed me that Swirls has recently been a part of many social events in LA. You can also order Swirls Cupcakes for your own personal events, such as weddings or parties.

But Swirls Cupcakes are not just for special events, they also have a delivery route. They stop by office buildings, similar to the new Sprinkles Truck, except that they have a regular route. And the good news is that their route includes stops in Orange County! (You can even request to be put on their route!) How much better can it get? Great cupcakes delivered right to your office!

Verdict: You must try Swirls Cupcakes! They are delicious! I was so surprised how amazing they were. Everyone agreed that we love Swirls Cupcakes!
