Walking along 12th Street last night I noticed something out of the ordinary. The usual crack hookers that usualy hang at 12th and Locust have been replaced with the “Call Me Cupcake” truck!
The “Call Me Cupcake” truck is committed to spending Fridays from 8 pm – 11 ish in the Gayborhood!
Now if you’re having dinner in the Gayborhood you can grab a cuppie from the truck at 12th and Locust!!
Let the record show that Foodrulez.com gave props to the Sweet Potato cupcake last month!
However, this month, they take the cake from Philadelphia Magazine as Best Snack in the Gayborhood!
Philadelphia Magazine stated, “Philly Cupcake is like falling down the rabbit hole. With mannequins. The to-die-for cupcakes (our faves are Twix Dream and The Massacre) and random stuff dipped in chocolate (Swedish fish!) make Wonderland seem boring.”
Personally, I recall High 5′ing Michael the owner when he told me they have a Twix Cupcake!
Way to go Philly Cupcake! Way to make the gays proud! Now all you need to come up with is a sugar-free, carb free, fat-free cup cake and all the boys leaving 12th St and Fusion will rush in to grab one. Lord knows the boys need to keep the abs poppin’
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!
