Getting to Know Divine Desserts

A day that I try a new cupcakery is always a great day. Today was a great day.

Divine Desserts Etc opened about nine months ago. In retrospect, I shouldn't have waited so long to finally make it to their shop. (So much time wasted not eating their cupcakes!) Today was the day I finally learned about their cupcake specialness.

Divine Desserts is located in Laguna Niguel. They sell cupcakes, cookies, muffins tops, and frosting shots. Today was my lucky day. I was invited to a special VIP media event at Divine Desserts. I grabbed my friend and my brother and we were off to meet Divine Desserts.

Todd and Leslie Lewis are the owners of Divine Desserts. They greeted me with big smiles and introduced me to their store.

First bit of business: a grand tour of the kitchen. LOVE the pink and light blue mixers! I learned that they can bake 100 cupcakes in 20 minutes.

Next stop: cupcake tasting! All of the cupcakes in the display cases were baked especially for this media party. I had such a hard time choosing flavors because there were so many interesting new choices! I think this is a great quality that sets them apart from other cupcakeries.

We had no problems digging into the cupcakes. The only problem was looking good while eating them (yes, that's Angry Julie...sorry this was the only photo I had of you!). Julie's favorite cupcake of the day: Banana.

My brother, Eric is an eating machine and a reviewer for my blog. His favorite cupcake of the day: Black Forest (chocolate with cherries).

The reason I brought my friend Kristina is because she shares my passion for eating. She is actually at a higher level of food-love than I. Her favorite cupcake of the day: Smores.

Ever tried a frosting shot? This was my first time. Wow! Pina Colada was a great choice.

Like I mentioned before, Divine Desserts also sells cookies and muffin tops. Chocolate chip cookies are my second favorite dessert (behind cupcakes, of course). One of the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever eaten! Still baffled how I left the store without trying a muffin top.

Kelly, from Just Spotted, brought her kids to the event. They were so excited to be eating cupcakes!

Kelly's baby girl got in on the action too. I'm pretty sure this was her first frosting shot!

A film crew from Greer's OC was there to shoot a commercial. This may be my on-camera debut!

I love the cupcake art adorning the walls of the shop. I would love something like that for my house.

Verdict: So what did I think of Divine Desserts? DELICIOUS!! To tell you the truth, I wasn't sure what to expect from them since they are a fairly new cupcake shop. But I was blown away by their flavors, their service, their presentation, and of course their taste. My favorite cupcake of the day: Red Velvet. I know this is cliche, but there's something special about Divine Desserts' Red Velvet. They wouldn't tell me what it was, you will just have to try it yourself.

Lucky me...they sent me home with some cupcakes to share with my family. Boy did they love them! Divine Desserts, thank you for the fun event and the delicious cupcakes! Keep baking great cupcakes and I will keep coming back!
