Located in an unassuming plaza, Patty’s Cakes is a lovely shop that provides delicious treats and courteous service. Their cupcakes are $3 each but a Yelp check-in will yield a free cupcake/cake pop with the purchase of three. That’s a fantastic deal. It didn’t take much arm twisting for me to jump on it. Here’s how it went down:
The Elvis (5 stars) – Peanut butter mousse and bacon pieces on top of a banana cupcake. http://www.yelp.com/bi… I’ve got some serious hunka hunka burning love for this one. Surely if The King was alive today, he would be hanging out at Patty’s Cakes popping these tasty morsels in his mouth left and right. The peanut butter, bacon, and banana worked really well together to give each bite a three dimensional flavor of fruity, salty, and nutty. It is a must-try before you leave the building.
Lemon Colada (4 stars) – Lemon cake with a lemon jelly filling and vanilla frosting covered in coconut. http://www.yelp.com/bi… This is perfect for lemon lovers. The taste kind of reminded me of a lemon meringue pie.
Chocolate Caramel Salty (4 stars) – Chocolate cake topped with chocolate frosting and a generous dollop of salted caramel. http://www.yelp.com/bi… There was a good ratio of caramel and salt to accompany every bite of the cake.
Chocolate Chipper (3 stars) – Chocolate cake with a chocolate chip mousse and chocolate dipped potato chips on top. http://www.yelp.com/bi… This one sounded better on paper than in actual cupcake form. It’s like a ding dong with Oreo frosting. Unfortunately, the chocolate dipped potato chips didn’t add to the cupcake.
The size of the cupcake is a little smaller than what I’m used to but you can tell they use quality ingredients and create them with a lot of care.
