Who doesn’t love cupcakes?! I have quite a sweet tooth so I look for the complex flavor profiles and lots of buttercream frosting! So here’s to the first round of San Diego Food Girls Cupcake Battle! Starting with my favorite first…
1. Pure Cupcakes
Winners of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, these guys aren’t messing around when it comes to cupcakes. I sampled the Rol-e-ol-ee-o cupcake. Rich and delicious chocolate cake with a gooey caramel center, topped with buttercream and then dipped in a hardened chocolate…WOW! Definitely my new favorite!
2. PB Bakery & Cafe
This brightly decorated bakery and cafe has many sweet and savory treats to offer. It was hard to pick, but I chose the Chocolate cupcake with Salted Caramel Buttercream. My cake was chocolatey and moist. With a very generous amount of salted buttercream on top with a caramel drizzle and chocolate chips. Definitely tasty!
3. Sprinkles Cupcakes
A Southern California staple since this company was the worlds’s first cupcake bakery. I’ve sampled several, but the tried and true favorite here is the classic Red Velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting. Yummm!
Stay tuned, there will be more cupcake battles in the future! Until then, keep calm and eat cupcakes!
