Two Peas and Their Pod: Cupcakes from Cupcake Chic

Cupcakes from Cupcake Chic

Happy Friday everyone! I have been having some health issues and haven't been in the mood to cook, bake, or eat much. So today I am going to spotlight one of my new favorite bakeries in Utah, Cupcake Chic. 

Cupcake Chic is an all cupcake bakery specializing in made to order miniature cupcakes. Each gourmet cupcake is handcrafted and made with only the finest ingredients. The flavor list is endless at Cupcake Chic. Sure, they sell the classics, chocolate, vanilla, etc. but they don't stop there. They offer fun flavors beyond your wildest imagination! 

Trista, the genius behind Cupcake Chic, recently shared a cupcake sampler platter with us. The cupcakes were super cute! I didn't want to disturb the adorable cuppy cakes, but of course we had to sample:)

First up, the Red Velvet, a Southern classic that has become popular pretty much everywhere. I loved the deep red cake color. It was very moist and chocolaty. The vanilla bean cream cheese frosting topped it off nicely. 

Second on the tasting list was the Key Lime Cupcake: graham cracker crust topped with lime cake and lime cream cheese frosting. This was Josh's favorite! The lime was very tart and very tasty! 

Next, was the Neapolitan: a layer of both milk chocolate and vanilla cake with a swirl of fresh strawberry butter cream frosting. This was by far the cutest! I love the mix of chocolate and vanilla, topped with strawberry and the cute little sprinkles! This one has something for everyone! 

The Chocolate Coconut cupcake was next. This one was really calling my name. I love chocolate and coconut together. The base was dark chocolate cake with coconut cream cheese frosting dipped in coconut. The frosting wasn't too sweet, which I loved. The coconut was nice and powerful too. Pure bliss!

Josh couldn't taste the next one, a Peanut Butter cupcake studded with chocolate chips and topped with a swirl of chocolate cream cheese frosting. If you are a peanut butter lover, this is the one for you! And of course the chocolate makes it even better:) I loved the chocolate chips in the cupcake, very nice touch! 

The final cupcake we tried was the Raspberry Vanilla: a moist vanilla bean cupcake with fresh raspberry butter cream frosting. I am usually a chocolate gal, but I really loved this one. A perfect treat for Spring and of course the pink frosting sold me too:)

You are probably wondering how we ate all of those cupcakes, but don't worry, I promise we only had a small bite of each. So what was my favorite? That is such a hard question. Josh for sure loved the Key Lime cupcake! I really liked the Chocolate Coconut cupcake and the Raspberry Vanilla, but they are all heavenly. I was impressed with each and every one! 

Thanks Trista for a fun sampling night. We are in love with all of your cupcakes! For more information please visit Cupcake Chic's website or blog. 

If you don't live in Utah, don't worry. Cupcake Chic does ship cupcakes-boxes of 4 for $25, shipping included! And if you need an event catered, why not treat everyone to cupcakes? The perfect sweet for anyone and everyone!

They all looking fantastic! I'm always drawn to desserts with sprinkles! We have a cupcake shop across the street from us (yes, they only sell cupcakes) and their cupcakes are horrible. They're always dry and the icing is way too sweet. I'm glad you have a good bakery by you. Hope you feel better soon!
