Cupcake Crawl: Icing on the Cake

March 19, 2009

A birthday is always a good reason for another cupcake tasting!  My taste spot- Icing on the Cake

First up: bananarama cupcake

I’ve had the banana cake before but this is just a whole different level of goodness.  I feel like the cake base in cupcake form is lighter and fluffier.  It works well with the fluffy peanut butter swirl frosting.  This is one of those rare times when I can actually say the density of the cake and frosting are perfectly balanced.  A+ for that.

Just thought the frosting deserved its own close up shot.  LOVE the swirl.

The peanut butter with banana is a great combination.  You can really taste the banana flavor and the peanut butter is not too overpowering.  It just gives it a new dimension of yum.

Next was the caramel cupcake.  Not as much gushing about this one.  Yes this is very similar to the bananarama in that the cake and frosting were both fluffy.  I was happy about that.  The flavor just wasn’t as strong as I hoped.  I wanted more caramel flavor, like take caramel sauce and drizzle it on top.

Maybe if they put caramel as a filling, that would have really hit the spot
