Buttercream (aka The Cupcake Truck) Review

Philly Ray | Sep 2, 2009 03:47 PM

The truck was scheduled to be at 11th and Walnut Sts this afternoon and since my wife works nearby, I sent her on a cupcake mission.

She picked up a half dozen assorted cupcakes for $12. So far, we've tried...

Chocolate cupcake with chocolate ganache frosting
Red Velvet cupcake w/cream cheese frosting topped with mini choc. chips
Red Velvet cupcake w/cream cheese frosting topped with crushed walnuts
Carrot cake w/cream cheese frosting topped with crushed walnuts

We still have yet to try...

Chocolate cupcake w/peanut butter frosting
Vanilla cupcake w/peanut butter frosting

The cupcakes were pretty moist and the frostings were good, but I don't think I'll be following the truck around Philadelphia to get a fix any time soon. Plus, for $2/cupcake, we thought they were a bit on the smallish side as well.

If you happen to be around and the truck is there, I would definitely say to try one. They are good, but not great. Plus, it's a lot of fun to eat a cupcake from a retooled mail truck. So they have that going for them.
