While on my vacation in the US my brother took me to a cupcake bakery in Austin called hey cupcake! I’d never been to a bakery before that only specialized in cupcakes.
I have had my fair share of bakery cupcakes in my life time, so I wasn’t expecting too much. Then, I took the first bite…
They were heavenly! So perfectly moist, but not gooey, with the perfect creamy frosting on top – I was in heaven!
I had “The Standard”, which is a vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting. I shared it with my son…who was not too fond of the whole sharing idea and ate all the frosting off.
My husband had the “Michael Jackson”, which is a chocolate cupcake with cream cheese frosting.
My brother had the “Michael Jackson – whipper snapper”.
And, his girl friend had the “Red Velvet – whipper snapper”, which is a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting.
The “whipper snapper” means that stick a whipped cream bottle (homemade of course) down the center of the cupcake and fill it with whipped cream – like a sort of cupcake Twinkie.
You can check out the rest of their menu here.
Cupcakes are $2.50 each, and no extra charge as a “whipper snapper”. And, for something as delicious as these cupcakes, I think they are very reasonably priced…I was actually expecting to pay more before we got there. For those of you interested, they even offer vegan cupcakes, but I’m not sure what flavor combinations are offered.
So, if you’re ever in the Austin area and feel like a cupcake, they have a three locations around town and I can highly recommend them!
