Saying that I love to eat is a HUGE understatement. I live to eat! So it's no surprise that the fair is one of my favorite times of the year. Last year I stumbled upon deep-fried cupcakes at the OC Fair. I can assure you that they taste a lot better than they sound. I was on a mission to find them again this year.
During my search I found a stand called Cup Cakes (original name, but I guess it's good to know exactly what they sell at that stand). Since I hadn't found the fried cupcakes yet, I decided to give them a try.
Cup Cakes is actually a company called CB's Cupcakes. They are a cupcake catering company that sells cupcakes at California fairs, special events, and their three stores (Temecula, San Diego, and Glendale). They are also available for birthday parties and weddings.
Cup Cakes is one of the few places I've seen where you can design your own cupcake. Their cake flavors are: Red Velvet, Chocolate, Vanilla, and Key Lime. The frosting choices are: Chocolate Buttercream, Vanilla Buttercream, and Cream Cheese. Then, you get to pick your topping.
I chose the Key Lime cupcake with Cream Cheese frosting topped with Graham Cracker Crumbles. When I first saw my custom cupcake I thought, a green cupcake? This isn't going to taste good. Good thing I didn't listen to myself. The cupcake was really good! The frosting was a little more whipped than I normally prefer, but the flavor was still very good. And for $2.00 (for the mini, $4.00 for the jumbo size), this was a great deal for the fair! I would definitely recommend!
I finally found the Spud Shack (the stand where I found the deep-fried cupcakes last year). Sadly, they weren't selling the cupcakes this year. That's ok, they probably aren't that good for you anyway. Since the OC Fair ended on Sunday, check out Cup Cake at the LA Fair.
