I recently trekked up to Frosting Cupcakery on the day of their official "grand opening" on June 5th. As you might recall I didn't have a great experience with their cupcakes from my first visit, but since I had some stuff to do nearby, I figured I'd give them another try. It also helped that part of their grand opening was a "Buy one get one free" special, haha.
'nilla 'nilla + Choc-a-lot
I picked up two of their classic flavors: 'nilla 'nilla (vanilla bottom with a vanilla buttercream top) and Choc-a-lot (chocolate bottom with a chocolate fudge top). The 'nilla 'nilla frosting is really really good. It's that sorta custardy vanilla flavor that I personally enjoy, reminds me of a vanilla Jell-o pudding pop (RIP), super delicious. The cake was good too, a simple vanilla cake, but honestly- the frosting was the highlight for me. I really think it's because it reminded me of a Jell-o pudding pop, and I still can't get over the fact that they don't make those anymore............tear.
I can't really speak to the Choc-a-lot cupcake, because I didn't eat it, haha. I gave it to M so maybe she can shed some light on that cupcake in the comments section :o) I will say though that the cupcake looked rich and choco-tastic; however the snow flake fondant topping sort of threw me off... it's June..........?? Haha. If I'm in the area again (which I will be, there's a fab BCBGMaxAzria AND Whole Foods across the street), I will try out another one of their flavors, preferably with the same pudding pop frosting :o)
