Cake Couture Cupcakes

Author:

My right wrist/hand has been aching from all the computer-ing I’ve been doing the last few days, so Gabe and I decided to take a day off to be out and about. We ended up going to visit one of our favorite places, Cake Couture at the Aina Haina Shopping Center.

Cake Couture offers a variety of classic cupcake flavors that rotates on a weekly basis.  They also have daily “gourmet flavors” that you only learn about once you’re in the shop.  Out of Friday’s menu, I was looking forward to trying the orange creamsicle cupcake (my favorite being the lemon, as I’m a citrus fan), but unfortunately they were sold out by the time we got there, which was around 1:30pm.  Some flavors are very popular, and sell out fast, but because the entire stock of cupcakes sell so well, the shop has a tendancy to close early if there are no cupcakes left.

I was amused to see that the gourmet cupcake of the day was the “Hostess” cupcake, a far superior version of its namesake that was a ligh chocolate cake filled with marshmallow and frosted with a chocolate ganache frosting.  I had to try it, so that was my pick, while Gabe got one mocha cupcake and one red velvet cupcake.

The Hostess cupcake was really good!  I am actually getting to the age where I like a little frosting on a lot of cake, rather than the other way around, so it having a thin frosting layer was very appealing to me.  The marshmallow inside was enough to add that marshmallow flavor without overpowering the delicious perfection that was the cake.  I highly recommend it.  I also stole a taste of Gabe’s mocha cupcake.  I couldn’t really taste the mocha in the cake, which seemed to be just a rich chocolate, but I could definitely taste it in the frosting.  I think it’s along the lines of the chocolate mint cupcake, where the frosting carries the flavoring.

Overall, a delicious excursion.  I’m a fan of sweets, so expect more posts like this in the future!
