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!
