Red Velvet Cupcake

The last stop on the Dollar Stroll before I had to head back was at Sweet Box Cupcakes a cupcake truck not always around campus. Each small cupcake was $1 and the line was so long. They were good cupcakes, though!

The Cookies & Cream Cupcake had a nice and sweet buttercream with cookie crumbles in it. It did not taste particularly like a cookie, just something sweet. The chocolate cake was not too sweet either, and personally, I wanted more sweetness. The mini chocolate vanilla cream cookie sandwich on top was cute and crunchy.Image

The Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake was delicious. While the chocolate cake could have been moister and sweeter, the buttercream had a very strong peanut butter flavor. It was dense and sweet and savory at the same time, super creamy and rich. The chocolate bits on top made it quite pleasing for the eye as well.

The Pumpkin Spice Cupcake was another of my favorites. The cake and buttercream both had strong pumpkin spice flavors and was decently sweet. The buttercream was especially aromatic, smooth, and sweet. The cake could have been more moist, like all of the other cupcakes, but it was still airy and soft.Image

Finally, the Red Velvet Cupcake, while pretty with the little pink heart on top, was the most disappointing. The cake was a bit too dry for me and quite bland. It had no flavor and needed more sweetness. The buttercream seemed to have some cream cheese in it but not much. It was hard for me to tell. The texture was good but very generically sweet. I was certainly looking for a more identifying feature or flavor in this cupcake.

I would have loved to check out more vendors at thus event. $1 deals are hard to come by nowadays unless you are at McDonald’s. Perhaps next year, but at least I got my share of cupcakes!Image
