Butterfinger cupcake from DHS: Yum! Yes, one person can eat the whole thing, and I did it for breakfast. I will say that I didn't feel so great for a few hours after that - LOL! The only thing that would have made it better is if wasn't served quite so cold. It makes it a little hard to eat.
Oreo Bon Bon cupcake from Boardwalk Bakery: Biggest dessert disappointment from my trip. They don't use real icing but some sort of whipped cream ickiness. There was a tasteless blob of something in the middle of the cupcake which had no flavor whatsoever. Two soggy oreos stuck in the whipped cream ickiness. I ended up throwing half of it away. Trust me, I love my sweets, and I hardly ever throw away any part of a dessert. Now, if you really don't like sweet icing, then you will probably love this cupcake.
Strawberry cupcake from Contempo Cafe: OMG, this was a little piece of heaven. Strawberry buttercream (yes, it was sweet!) and even some real pieces of strawberry in the middle of the cupcake. I hope this one isn't seasonal, because I will definitely make a special trip back there this fall just for this cupcake alone!
Thank you for telling me that! I am so not a fan of whipped cream type of icing, and would have been way disappointed even if it was covered with oreo!!
Now if anyone can confirm how the new smores cupcake tastes.....
