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!

Chez Beignet

January 12, 2011 | Located in the same plaza as Kim Son, Crawfish & Noodles, Tony Thai, and Yogurt Spot, Chez Beignet manages to stay busy, serving consistently good beignets.  And on this night, it was a great option for dessert. I’m not huge on fried pastries, but I do enjoy the occasional trip to get some beignet fingers topped with powdered sugar and honey!

They also serve coffee and hot chocolate– I went with the latter to make sure I could sleep at night.

The tables are small and the powdered sugar can get a little bit messy, but don’t let those factors be a deterrent from making a visit!  Just remember– they take cash or check only.
