The Strawberry Cupcake ($3.50) was one of our favorite cupcakes from the previously mentioned Cupcake Crawl. The Brownie Cookie ($1.50) sounded interesting, and it was small enough to justify buying it too. Before you think, "Wow, you ate all that by yourself and then had dinner? Ew.", I wound up going to S & D's abode for dinner, so I brought these along as dessert for us to share.
The Strawberry Cupcake does not disappoint- it's got chunks of fresh strawberry in the vanilla cake, and a hefty coating of strawberry frosting with sprinkles on top. I also liked that the way they wrap these cupcakes makes it good for transport- didn't lose any of the frosting from it hitting the inside of the box. The Brownie Cookie was also v. good- a regular cookie base with chunks of brownies mixed in. Only complaint might be there was no textural difference between the brownie and the cookie, maybe if one component had walnuts or something it would be more interesting.
S says, "I thought that the brownie cookie was very good. It was moist, which is a very important factor for me and cookies, tasty and totally hit the spot. In regards to the cupcake, I thought that the strawberry frosting totally made the cupcake what it was. The frosting had a great texture, consistancy and had just the right hint of strawberry flavor."
I'm assuming D liked it since he snagged the last 1/4 of both the cupcake and the cookie.
