mini tastes, maxi disappointment

The display in the window was so attractive, a cupcake stand filled with Halloween cupcakes: ghosts and monsters and mummies, looking deliciously spooky. And the fireplace was warm and inviting on this cold night.

This was the last stop on a progressive dinner tour, and a plate of 3 mini cupcakes had been selected for each of us. The cupcakes were served on vintage china plates, competing for prettiness with the food on top.

Sadly the cupcakes did not live up to their advance billing. They may be made with organic flour, but two of them were rubbery and tasteless. The buttercream icing was very soft and very skimpy, much of the cake still showed on top. The fruit decorations were cut in large pieces, dominating the tiny cupcakes.

On top of it, there was a shortage of chairs and being the last to arrive, I had no place to sit and had to eat standing up. I would definitely not return.

mini champagne cupcake

This one was pale ivory with a large bubble of whipped cream icing on top. It did not taste of champagne at all. It was very rubbery and very unpleasant to eat. If it had been larger than one bite, I would have sent it back, it was that awful!

mini strawberry cupcake

The cupcake was topped with a large chunk of fresh strawberry, 1/3 to 1/2 of a berry that overhung the edges of the cupcake. It was fastened to the cupcake with the barest minimum of pale pink buttercream icing. And the whole tasted very little of strawberry.

mini chocolate-pear cupcake

This was the best of the three. Chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and a chunk of pear on top. And a couple of small pear chunks in the batter. Inelegant, but moist. Good chocolate flavor but little pear flavor.
