Review: Cupcakes Actually

It's taken me a while to write this review because it kinda got lost in the shuffle of my marathon, work, Halloween, and birthdays. This is my first review of a cupcake shop in Virginia. Yes, you read that right...Virginia.

In September I was in Virginia for a quick two-day business trip. It was my first time there and I had little free time. But somehow I managed to find the time to squeeze a 20 mile training run in. I was in the midst of marathon training and it gave me a chance to see the scenery.

I finished the run and I was famished. I searched around and found a burger place called Burgerfi. I'm pretty sure it was the best burger joint I've ever eaten at. Then again, I had just ran 20 miles and I'm pretty sure almost anything would have been delicious to me.

Anyways, after dinner I noticed a cupcake shop in the same parking lot. What luck! Cupcakes Actually looked like the perfect way to end a delicious meal.

Even after a full meal of burger, fries, and Cherry Coke, I still had room for more. What did I try? Pumpkin, Key Lime, Flourless Chocolate, Vanilla, and Salted Caramel.

Pumpkin: the cream cheese frosting was light, but still had a good flavor. I wish the frosting could have been stronger.

Key Lime: whipped lime frosting on lime cake. I'm not a big whipped frosting fan, but the flavors were pretty good.

Flourless Chocolate: the chocolate was so intense! The cake was like a brownie. I liked the vanilla buttercream frosting, which lessened the intensity of all of the chocolate.

Vanilla: such a boring cupcake. It was like eating nothing.

Salted Caramel: here's the winner! Caramel cake filled with salted caramel, topped with salted caramel buttercream and dipped in ganahce. Also topped with salty pretzels. I LOVED this combo of flavors! My favorite part was the salted caramel filling.
