Another review that’s long overdue, my wife purchased some cupcakes from this shop for my birthday last year during our weekend trip to Big Bear. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures of any of the cupcakes except the vanilla with chocolate — easily the most pedestrian of the bunch. The rest were surprisingly good. The snickerdoodle was my favorite. I loved the subtle sweetness of the icing, devoid of any graininess at all, with a cake center filled with cookie dough. The cookies and cream was rich and creamy with bits of cookie in the middle. The peanut butter cupcake had a moist chocolate cake base with a somewhat heavy peanut butter icing. And, finally there was the strawberry champagne cupcake. I enjoyed the pronounced strawberry flavor and the spongey cake. I’m usually the one who does the research to find places to eat, but my wife did a great job finding a spot to get some birthday treats.
