The other night at Book Club my friend brought over a dozen Mrs. Beasley’s cupcakes. We all dug in, ooeying and aweing, and sampling every flavor. I had two immediate thoughts upon first bite: 1- these were very moist and tasty cupcakes, and 2- the icing was way overly whipped.
Another point of contention was the vanilla frosting on the Red Velvet cupcake. A couple of the girls loved this cupcake anyway, but most of us missed the fresh cream cheese flavor that makes a red velvet cake special. The Chocolate Chocolate cupcake, however, was AMAZING. I’ve never had chocolate “frosting” quite like it. It was like a deep, rich, chocolate mousse whipped up onto a delicious, moist little cake.
Overall, these treats lurk somewhere between a 3.5-4 Cherry rating. While these cupcakes would surely please your party guests, they’re almost $5 a pop! At 1/5th the price you can get Hansen’s cupcakes on Fairfax. They taste a little more artificial, but they’re still delightful and will be much easier on the wallet!
