Cream Bakery - Cupcakes That Will Make You Swoon

Last week, I posted a note about a cupcake promotion from Cream Bakery for buy 1 get 1 free cupcake.  For those of you who know me personally, you won't be surprised to learn that I tried Cream bakery the very next day.  Being a sucker for sweet things, and cupcakes in particular, I just had to taste the deliciousness they were preaching.  And I'm happy to say that I wasn't disappointed.

Although I didn't go to the bakery myself (I sent Dan in my stead), I got to sample Cream's cupcakes at a family birthday party last weekend.  Here are my thoughts and ruminations:

Cupcakes - From the minute I saw them, neatly wrapped in two 6 cupcake containers, I started salivating.  There were so many different flavors that my senses were on overload and I couldn't decide just which one (or more) I would try. 

Dan took advantage of the buy 1 get 1 free special of course, which limits you to 3 free cupcakes, so he paid for 9.  There were 5 varieties he picked including your standard vanilla and chocolate with different colored buttercream frosting and other fancier flavors too, including banana, red velvet and chocolate cheesecake.

I automatically gravitated to the chocolate cheesecake cupcake, which didn't have a creamy frosting like the others, but it was so rich that it didn't need a topper.  Wow! Once I bit into this soft mound of heaven, I knew I chose the right cupcake.  The chocolate dough was moist and not too sweet but still very chocolatey--and as soon as I took a bite out of the creamy, tangy cheesecake portion, my senses were delighted even further.  Overall, the cupcake was surprisingly light, given its rich ingredients and unlike a big slice of cheesecake, it went down easy.

Although I didn't try all the other cupcakes, I licked off the frosting on a few stragglers and was impressed with its sweet, velvety texture and its delightful taste.  I can't wait to sample the other varieties really soon.

Despite the great deal we got with the buy 1 get 1 free, Cream's cupcakes are expensive at $2.00 - $2.75 each.  A dozen came out to $21, even with the aforementioned coupon.
