I really love cupcakes, and the best thing is, there’s 2 different places that sells great cupcakes near me! It gives me variety as they are 2 different companies! I do enjoy Crave Cookies and Cupcakes, and the location in Kensington is the main location! This location is cute and I really like it (even though it’s a bit out of the way!) I like the small community feel to anything in Kensington and it is so neighborly and friendly – plus they know how to bake great food!
We’ve purchased a few cupcakes from this location on different occasions. My favourite flavour from Craves would be A Lovely Bunch of Coconuts Vanilla cupcake. We’ve purchased from single regular sized cupcakes to half a dozen mini cupcakes. Overall, I think we’ve tried them all!
The “A Lovely Bunch of Coconuts Vanilla cupcake is a vanilla cake with a hint of coconut flavouring in the cupcake – then topped with vanilla butter cream icing and smothered in coconut. It is a messy cupcake but well worth it!
The other cupcake that we enjoy a lot is Just Chocolate! You really can’t go wrong with chocolate cupcake with a delicious chocolate butter cream topping! The cupcakes are always light and fluffy while the butter cream topping is always the perfect consistency to hold up to the piping bags – these cupcakes are always perfectly decorated! These icings hardly ever had the hard topping on it from the sugar, since they sell out so quickly, there really isn’t ever a chance for that to happen!
Recently, I’ve been going to the Willow Park location and I’m loving it! It offers the same goodness closer to home. Craves Cookies and Cupcakes is definitely one of the best in town – if it isn’t the best for me!
