I've never really been on the commercial cupcake bandwagon but my husband does know i have a really big soft spot for the pink champagne cupcakes at Barb's(and am developing a soft spot for the new lemon raspberry flavor they talked me into trying last time I was there).
He took a few knives up to be sharpened at the Phoenix Knife House while I was at work today and spied Lulu's in the plaza. We'd just taken some Barb's cupcakes to my mom so I guess cupcakes were fresh on his brain.
He came home with a lemon and a German Chocolate cake cupcake. UGH. Terrible. The cake had a horrible texture - mush and gummy yet simulataneously dry. Do they freeze these things? The frosting was that gritty, sugary overly sweet stuff so common in commercial baking. Both ended up in the trash after we tasted them.
$3.25 a piece. Overpriced and underwhelming.
I"m sticking to Barb's for my cupcake fix.
