Cupcake Craze Part One: Bake Cupcakes

Red Velvet
I recently had the pleasure of visiting Longview, TX- mainly because I was on a mission to taste and experience the wonderful world of premium cupcakes by way of a cupcake eatery called Bake Cupcakes.

Bake Cupcakes is a wonderfully chic cupcakery that offers delicious gourmet cupcakes.

Here are the flavors we tried and loved...

1.) Red Velvet- a traditional red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. This is my favorite version of this type of cupcake. I was glad that I could not taste any almond extract. Some people prefer the almond flavor, but I do not.

2.) Lemon- a nice, soft burst of lemon flavor that wasn't too overpowering.

3.) Black & White- a delicious chocolate cupcake with smooth vanilla frosting.

4.) Strawberries-N-Cream- a fresh burst of strawberry flavor and cream cheese frosting.

5.) Peanut Butter Cup- this tastes exactly as its name.

Peanut Butter Cup

All of the cupcakes were moist. I absolutely love the cream cheese frosting, because it doesn't taste too sweet compared to regular frosting. I believe it gives the cupcake or any cake more flavor.

Let's get to the price. From what I have experienced, you can pay anywhere from $2.25 to $3.00 per cupcake depending on the establishment in each city.

Black & White
Bake Cupcakes is pretty reasonable at $2.50 per cupcake because their cupcakes are really that good. Their premium cupcakes are $2.75 each. You can give these as treats for any special occasion- birthdays, weddings, parties, office/ business gatherings, bridal showers, or just to say thank you. Or you can just have these to treat yourself weekly or daily.

They offer quite an array of flavors that include: German Chocolate, Italian Cream, Devil's Food, Banana Split, Bake Love, Confetti, Black Forest, Grandma's Birthday, Cookies-N-Cream, Double Vanilla, Pink Champagne, Chocolate Raspberry, The Elvis, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Key Lime, Coconut, and more.
