Yes that’s what will happen to you if you eat The Elvis.
It’s a cupcake with banana cake, topped with peanut
butter mousse, and …..BACON. Elvis’ favorite sandwich
that gave him all those chins, can be yours in Cupcake
form. It’s absolutely delicious, the sweetness of the
banana cake, the saltiness of the bacon, and the creamy
peanut butter mousse that holds it all together so well.
They weren’t skimpy on the bacon either, it had several
nice thick pieces of it on top. Let’s face it Bacon is
the new ketchup, just put it on everything. It’s
basically a condiment now. Any day you will see it
ground up in powdered form right next to those little
packs of salt and pepper.
We needed a birthday cake for my daughter, and like any
good father, I had to sample the bakery first. 4
cupcakes should do it. When I walked in, I was
wondering where all the cupcakes were? Just a menu
hanging on the wall and a few cake balls in the display
case. Well it turns out that the cup cakes aren’t
frosted until you order it. It might mean that the
order process is a little slow, but they want your
cupcake to be perfect. That also means you can create
any combination of cake and frosting you want.
Although, just trust them, they have a bunch of
combinations listed on their menu (23 I think). Some
have names….so The Elvis had to be ordered of course,
Chocolate Caramel Salty, and a Lemon Drop and then a red
velvet with cream cheese mousse.
My wife’s favorite was the Chocolate Caramel Salty.
Chocolate cake, fudge, caramel, and sea salt. If you
like salty toffee in chocolate, you will like this one.
The Lemon Drop was interesting. Rather than frosting,
it was topped with a strong lemon jelly that you might
find inside a donut. I think I would prefer frosting if
I ordered it again. The red velvet was very good. This
was topped with a cream cheese mousse. The result was
the same flavor of cream cheese frosting, but whipped
much lighter, so it had a consistency of a butter cream
frosting. This could be good or bad for you depending
on how you like your frosting. I like mine a little
thicker. One thing I did like about the cupcakes was
that they inject a little frosting in the middle of the
cupcake as well.
So they passed the Daddy test, and we ordered a half
sheet red velvet cake with cream cheese mousse frosting.
My daughter wanted a Barbie in a purple princess dress.
They helped us find an image online and my daughter
loved that she could pick which design. They were
really great about taking their time with us and got
exactly what she wanted. When we picked up the cake, it
looked just like the picture, they did a great job. And
the important part, it tasted just as great as their
cupcakes. So thanks Patty’s cakes, we’ll be happy to
use you guys again.
