I've been hearing about the awesomeness of Frosted Cupcakery in Long Beach for years. Long Beach isn't that far, so why haven't I been there yet? Answer: I didn't know, I just didn't know how great it would be.
About six months ago I bought a Groupon for Frosted Cupcakery. I figured that would finally get me into their shop. Well, it did, but two days too late. My Groupon had expired, but Frosted Cupcakery accepted it for the face value. Instead of getting 6 cupcakes for $9, I got 3 cupcakes. At least it wasn't a total loss.
My husband and I were on our way back from the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach when we decided to stop by. Luckily, Frosted is open late (until 9pm), so they still had plenty of cupcakes when I popped in.
Although Frosted Cupcake is famous for their ice cream cupcakes, all I had was my Groupon (no money), so I picked a few of the regular popular cupcakes. But I certainly wasn't disappointed.
Chocolate Caramel Toffee
Did Frosted Cupcakery live up to its reputation? I can happily say YES! The cake on all three cupcakes was moist. The frosting was thick and creamy, just the perfect buttercream and cream cheese frostings. Some shops just know how to make perfect frosting. The proportion of frosting of cake was spot on. I also liked how Frosted cupcakes have a little more than a normal cupcake. The red velvet had a chocolate candy on top, the nutella had a nutella candy on top, and the chocolate caramel toffee had toffee rolled around the edges. Each of these distinguishing additions made the cupcakes a little more special. They weren't just pieces of cake with a dab of frosting, they were edible works of art.
All I know is I HAVE to go back so I can try more flavors and taste their ice cream cupcakes. Frosted Cupcakery is the only cupcake shop I know of that sells ice cream cupcakes. I would highly recommend Frosted Cupcakery because of the their delicious cupcakes, the wide selection of cupcakes available, and their reasonable prices (cupcakes are $2.95 each).
