I’m give Patty’s Cakes a star for the number of times I went there in one week. Yes I was at Patty’s Cakes 5 times in one week. That alone can speak volumes.
I first went because of the cake balls. I have never ever had a ball of cake before, so I had to check it out. It is basically a moist hunk of cake surrounded with either milk of white chocolate. Jess C. and I ventured about a mile from school to try 4 different flavors. We chose: Red Velvet, Lemon, Smores, and Banana. My favorite was the Lemon with the Banana coming in second. Jess’s favorite was the Smores and the Banana. The Lemon cake ball was super moist, like Mrs. Beasley’s lemon cake in Beverly Hills. The Smores had tons of goodies on it. It had marshmallows and graham crackers sticking out of it. Jess likes goodies. The red velvet is pretty but there isn’t enough chocolate flavor to it. I think that they are kind of small for the price of $3 but it is definitely worth a try if you come out here. They are great as gifts because they are fun and unique!
Now the next four visits I came for the cupcakes. One of them I was foiled because they ran out (Saturday before closing, which makes sense) and had to buy more cake balls. The cupcakes are also $3 but I think they are more worth your money than the balls. There are more flavors and they are all iced and decorated so well. I have tried a good number of the flavors and my favorite is the Banana! The creamy pudding-like topping is the best. The cake is amazingly moist as well. Most of the cupcakes have a mouse frosting, which is light and airy. I tend to like heavy dense frostings. haha. The Banana and the Chocolate Fudge don’t have the light frosting. The Lemon also has a gelly like frosting instead of the mouse. The cake itself is light too. So if you like dense cake this might not exactly be your favorite but it is definitely moist and not dry at all. The Butter Pecan is a hit with the crowds as well as their chocolate cupcakes. I’d recommend getting half a dozen so you sample more flavors :D
Sprinkles is still my #1 fave but Patty’s does a great job of satisfying my cupcake cravings! I am a fan! I am also a fan of their customer service. Patty herself is the sweetest lady and the guys that work there are hilarious and funny. Super great staff!
