Celebrity Cupcakes

May 10, 2011

January 22, 2011 | After eating at Melange Creperie, my friend and I went to Celebrity Cupcakes in Rice Village for dessert! We each got a mini-red velvet cupcake and I ordered their signature cupcake– Fleur de Sel, which is made of french cocoa cake, caramel center topped with chocolate ganache and a dash of imported french sea salt.

The mini-red velvet was the perfect portion for me! I usually find cupcakes too sweet or heavy, but I realize maybe this time I didn’t because the serving size was small. I didn’t try the Fleur de Sel until later, but OMG it was scrumptious!! The caramel center just ooozes out (I wouldn’t recommend eating this without a napkin/plate)! Mmm…

I’ll be back to try some of the other cupcakes!

Sugar Sweet Sunshine

July 22, 2009

May 4, 2009 | Before dinner, we went to Sugar Sweet Sunshine (yelp) for cupcakes!  Monica insisted we stop there so I, of course, obliged.  I’m sure glad we made that stop.  We got a sexy red velvet – red velvet cake with “the moose”, and a spicy pumpkin – spicy pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing.

The cupcakes were so light and fluffy!  The icing wasn’t overly sweet the way it usually is.  Seriously, I would probably eat cupcakes a lot more if they all tasted like this.  *drool*

Oh yeah, and it’s a cute little store.  Looks like a chill, casual place to sit and chat with a friend while nibbling on a scrumptious cupcake!  =)
