Seriously, it's worth the three hour drive to make it to Trophy Cupcakes. I had a Cupcakes sampling last week and was bitterly disappointed. First off, the neon hues were off-putting. Since when are lemons the color of nuclear turmeric? Artificial colors serve a purpose, but they were maligned in this case. The flavors were flat.
And then one week later to Trophy Cupcakes, and let me just say that it is worth the hype. The best cupcakes I have had. The chocolate and vanilla cakes were equally moist and flavorful, reminding one that brown can actually taste like chocolate, instead of just like "brown". I won't go on, but I just couldn't get over the comparison between the two, and at the same price point, it's just criminal.
