On Friday I was lucky enough to win a Facebook contest via the Kentucky Cupcake facebook fan page that entitled me to four delicious cupcakes from Kalen of KentuckyCupcake.com! We met this evening (real shady-like) in the parking lot of a Speedway for me to pick them up. ;] I wish we would’ve had a little more time to chat because upon leaving the Speedway I realized I thought a lot of things and said none of them, like – “You look great!” So, Kalen- you look great.
Anyway! I knew that I wanted to win so that I could do a little review of her cupcakes. This would require me to eat a cupcake, guilt free in the name of the review of course. Oh, darn. This would also require me to set up the cupcakes in cute locations to run around them, stand in the chair over them, etc. to snap fancy pictures. It’s serious business. Side note: I know I sound crazy but, standing in a chair looking directly down is a great way to photograph food. It turned out that I didn’t like any of the photos from that angle this time, but I usually do!
The particular flavor (one of many) that I won is February’s flavor of the month- vanilla with raspberry filling and creamy white chocolate frosting, topped with a delicious candy heart! The thought of raspberry and white chocolate together kind of sounded like the dreamiest cupcake combo ever, and I can say that I was not disappointed! To be totally honest I am not the biggest cupcake fan around. I always find them to be too sweet with too much icing and a lot of times, too crumbly and dry. But these were moist with just the right amount of icing and not too, too sweet. I still could not eat a second one soon after, so they are sweet – but normal people (aka: people who enjoy deserts a lot) could probably eat the entire box in one sitting. What I’m trying to say is .. if I am impressed by a cupcake, it’s good y’all.
So with that said- if you live in the Lexington, Kentucky area you must order cupcakes from KentuckyCupcake.com! There are a ton of flavors to choose from and I can only speculate that they are just as delicious as the yummy sample I had. =) Thank you Kalen for running such a fun little contest!
