Even though I have lived here for 2 years, there are still a lot of restaurants that I have never been. This year, I plan to try out as many restaurants and bakeries as I can. DH has no problems trying out new restaurants but he is not a big fan of breads and desserts. Luckily I found a companion in my friend S who has been wandering around town with me checking out bakeries and cake shops.
One of the cake shop that is on top of my list is Trophy Cupcakes. Trophy Cupcakes has a list of press honors including a segment on Martha Stewart. Trophy Cupcakes offer 5 basic selection of vanilla, chocolate and red velvet cupcakes everyday but they also offer 4 specials that differs everyday. We were there on Wednesday, so there were the Hummingbird, Lemon Coconut, Chocolate Chip Mint and Chai Cardamon.
Oh, so tempting! We stood in front of this case for a long time because we couldn’t decide what to get!!
When I saw this cupcake, I had to get it for Lil’ C. Pink frosting and sprinkles really makes a 4 year old very very happy!
I got the lemon coconut cupcake which was a lemon buttercake topped with coconut buttercream and shaved coconut. Love it! The cake was moist and the buttercream was delicious and not too sweet.
S had the Hummingbird which is a banana cupcake with bits of pineapple and coconut topped with cream cheese frosting. It was yummy! The frosting was light and not too sweet.
The cupcakes were so good that we went back a week later!! Hehe…
