[Review] Seriously, the 5 stars is for Patty herself!!

Seriously, the 5 stars is for Patty herself!!  And the other guy behind the counter whose name I didn’t get.  They are awesome people and I think that is why their cupcakes are so awesome!

I used a groupon I bought that was going to expire next week and we decided to get an assortment of cupcakes to share.  We tried:

Lemon with Lemon Curd (suuuuper lemony and super delicious! I want an entire cake made of this lol)

The Elvis (pretty good!  i love that the banana cake isn’t like banana nut bread, but banana flavored bread – it is so fresh tasting!  the peanut butter frosting and bacon were an awesome combo)

Chocolate with Chocolate Frosting (the bit of cream in the middle of this cupcake reminded me of a hostess cupcake, but on a bigger and better scale!  it was super sweet and chocolatey – a little too much so for me, but it was still good).

Red Velvet (not our fave – hubby and i were splitting the cupcakes every time we tried them and we saved this one for last, but were kinda disappointed.  the cake wasn’t as cocoa-y tasting as i liked and the frosting was not as flavorful as i had hoped)

Banana with Cream (my personal fave!  the frosting is like pudding and it was so nom nom nom!).

We have others to try but we are seriously cupcaked out for now.  Seriously, though, if you’re in the area or even close by, stop in!  They frost their cupcakes fresh to order and they are so pretty.  We waited in our car and they were delivered to us by Patty herself who was so excited for us to see them that she asked me to open the box and look at them and my hubby proudly proclaimed “Now THAT’S a cupcake!”

Thanks, Patty!  Keep up the awesome job!

[Review] The Best Cupcakes I’ve Had Out On The West Coast

“I really wish there was a 1/2 star option on yelp.

4.5 stars for Patty’s Cakes and DessertI was really impressed with their customer service I really love red velvet cupcakes but they didn’t have any up front when I arrived.  So I waited about five minutes and they brought out a freshly baked cupcake.  I also didn’t know about the free cupcake special if you mention yelp but the guy at the counter asked me how I found the place and I definitely received my free cupcake!  That was super exciting and I practically jumped up and down in the store.

These cupcakes just don’t taste delicious but they look it too!  As you take your first bite, you’ll discover a moist cake with a light and fluffy frosting. The frosting is not overwhelming and complements the flavor of cupcake.  I tried the red velvet, the pumpkin with cream cheese frosting, Chocolate with chocolate fudge and Chocolate with Chocolate Chambord Mousse.  All were delicious and they are definitely the best cupcakes I’ve had out on the west coast.

At $3 bucks a pop, I think these cupcakes are COMPLETELY REASONABLE.  I’ve paid a lot more for really crappy cupcakes so I definitely think that these are worth the money.

So why the 4.5 rating?  Well, because they weren’t perfect.  They didn’t give me that “I need to go back and get one right now” feeling that I have for certain foods.  Patty’s Cakes is where I will go back time and again for a good cupcake fix but I can’t say I’ll go out of my way to just eat these cupcakes.”
