Last week, Honey of Honey's Cupcakes sent us an email that she was doing some "research" (let's call it that) on her new cupcake flavours coming out on 01/09/15. She wanted us to try a few flavours and let her know our thoughts. We honestly thought we'd get a couple of cupcakes, max four to try out. We were wrong - we got a dozen.
Fortunately for everyone that had gotten a ticket for last weekend's lunch club, the cupcake delivery arrived just as Nosa was heading out to Vellvett and in a split second he decided to bring them along because there was absolutely no way we were going to eat all 12 cupcakes alone. So we decided to share the cupcakes with everyone at Lunch Club and have a little cupcake focus group, and somehow it spiraled into a blog post.
Here's what they* thought:
The Chocolate Cookie Lover
A.I: Yummy, sinful, but a handful.
A.D: It was really nice, but the frosting was a bit much.
I.O: The cake part was really yummy, but the icing part was too sweet combined with the Oreo.
I.A: It was very good 😬
FOLLY: I really liked the peanut butter filling. Something about ti tasted natural/homemade. I bet it was. I loved the salted caramel + chocolate chip topping, it was my favorite part.
K.K: I was not too fond of the coconut flavour but it was moist and delicious regardless.
D.D: The chocolate cake is great. Moist but not too moist. I’m not a fan of Bounty, but it worked really well with the chocolate. Lovely texture and not too sweet. I would have preferred it only as a topping and not as a center as well.
NOSA: I really loved this because I love Bounty so maybe I’m a bit biased. How did she get all that Bounty in there anyway?
The Lemony Delight
S.O: I liked the frosting with the coconut flakes, but the custard could have been a little more “lemony”. The cupcake itself was perfect.
B.O: I absolutely love the the lemon cake. Everything about this cake. The frosted buttercream, the custard down the middle. I've never quite gotten what the fuss about cupcakes was. But now, I'm a believer.
