This summer is going to be fun! I am on an ongoing search for the best cupcake in Philly!
There will be a “Philly Cupcake Warz” at some point, but I really want to get a lay of the land first.
Allow me to introduce you to – Philly Cupcake! It opened 6 months ago at the corner of 12th and Chestnut. I’ve heard good things about it, and couldn’t wait to try it myself.
I gave them a shout out on Twitter, asking which flavor I should try, they Tweeted back – Sweet Potato! Now, having had Easter brunch at Ms. Tootsies and having fallen in love with sweet potato cupcakes, I was all to happy to oblige.
So far there have been a few cupcakes that have moved me: Brooklyn Blackout @ Two Little Red Hens & The Pistachio @ Sugar Sweet Sunshine – Well, move over baby I’m adding the Sweet Potato @ Philly Cupcake to the list.
An incredibly moist cake that was sweet and cinnamony/all spicey at the same time. Rich and creamy – cream cheese frosting – There were pecans mixed IN the cupcake and the icing, there was sweetness, there was moist, there was crunch, there was smooth, there was spicey……. I temporarily lost the ability to see!
It was a wonderful cupcake! They have tons of other flavors – my mouth dropped open when I saw their Twix Cupcake!! I literally, High 5’d Mike, the owner! Twix is one of my favorite candy bars! Woo hoo!! More than tasting good, the cupcakes here are like little works of art. They are built with meticulous care! Swirls of icing, chunks of goodies placed lovingly a top wonderfully flavored cake!
Run – don’t walk to Philly Cupcake!
