Mad Hatter Cupcakes

— Originally posted on Yelp on 7/5/10 —

Even though I’ve got a huge sweet tooth I’ve never been a big fan of cupcakes. I don’t know what it is, but when my inner fat kid comes calling I usually default to cookies, ice cream, pies or cakes. But, I decided to break from routine and try this place out. Others might like their concept of building your own cupcake, but I’m not a fan. I tend to be very indecisive when it comes to food, so having so many choices for the cupcake, the filling, and the frosting was overwhelming. I opted for the “Mad About Coconut” — coconut cupcake, coconut creme filling, and coconut frosting. My wife got a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting and our son got an Elmo-looking cupcake, which was a vanilla cupcake, vanilla frosting, and red sprinkles.

All the cupcakes looked great but they didn’t taste nearly as good. There was nothing particularly bad about any of them. They were all moist but maybe a little too sweet. I might consider going back, especially because there was a sign on their door that said after 7:30 at night it’s buy one, get one free while supplies last. I think that’s a great way to clear out their inventory for the day instead of just throwing out any left over cupcakes.

So, while this might not be my first choice in cupcakes, I might be back when the fat kid in me wants to stuff his face with a 2-for-1 special.
