Delish Cupcakes

In keeping with today's Cupcake Theme. I thought I'd post a quick note about some cupcakes I recently received from Delish Gourmet Cupcakes.

Last week was rough.

I had meetings, class assignments, a mid-term (Why, oh why, did I decide to take classes again?), and a job interview. So, when Friday afternoon rolled around, I was spent.

Delish CupcakesBut my day got a lot better when I got a little bundle of joy from the folks at Delish. That bundle of joy came in the form of a dozen cupcakes: 6 Carrot Cake, and 6 Amaretto.

As you can see by the photo, they know how to make a nice presentation. Those butterflies on top are made of edible ink on wafer paper. They don't taste like much, but they are colorful and unique -- and for some reason, my cat LOVED them!

The cupcakes are standard cupcake size -- not oversized. Which was nice; that way I didn't feel too bad for eating them. The both types of cupcake were topped with some of the best frosting I've had. It was cream cheese based, rich, and most importantly, not too sweet. This was real frosting -- not that crappy stuff they use at the grocery store.

The carrot cake cupcakes were moist and tasty. There were real shredded carrots and walnuts in them, though for some reason the carrots were bunched together in a couple of the cupcakes. However, that didn't take away from the deliciousness. These were my favorite.

The others were the amaretto cupcakes. These were unique -- I've never had a cupcake like this before. The amaretto flavor was apparent, but not overwhelming. The cupcake itself has almost an Agel Food cake consistency and was on the dry side -- at least compared to the carrot cake.

Delish certainly brightened my day. All-in-all, they offer a really well presented and delicious cupcake. Let's face it, you're not going to make something that looks this good -- and how are you gonna create the edible butterflies?? So, I think they're worth a call, or at least a visit to their website: Delish Gourmet Cupcakes.
