Thanks to a stop outside of DC, I finally had a chance to try out Curbside Cupcake. Normally they go around parts of the city during the week, meaning I wouldn't have time to find them during work, so I was happy to be able to check them out.
I picked up two cupcakes because they were doing a special that day (2 for $5, vs. $3 each), plus a cookies n' cream shake because it was their first day of offering milkshakes on the truck.
I understand that boxes cost more money but I was a little surprised when my two cupcakes came in one paper lunch bag. I had to be pretty careful taking these back to work, especially since there wasn't a divider separating the two cupcakes.
I got a Red Velvet (left) and what I believe was a Snickerdoodle cupcake - I don't see it listed on their online menu, but I think it might have been a special flavor?
Taste-wise these cupcakes were ok, but as you can see in the photo, pretty dry around the edges. I found the core of the cupcakes to be the tastiest section of both cupcakes. Also, not to be nitpicky, but the frosting on the Red Velvet cupcake was completely off-center and about to fall over at any second. And that's how it was when I received it, so it's not an issue of heat or anything. To be honest both cupcakes weren't really that appealing when I first looked at them, and I was a little surprised, given the rave reviews I've heard from people on Twitter mostly.
The cookies n' cream shake was tasty - but then again, give me just about anything with Oreos and I'll like it, haha. I'm mostly happy that I was able to try out this cupcake truck so that I can say that I tried it once, but I'm not really sure I'd be in a hurry to track them down again.
