I really thought about trying to take a doze of cupcakes with me to the Grand Canyon to enjoy on the North Rim. I thought long and hard about it, but realized that they may not do too well be in the desert. So, I decided I would wait until I got home. Although, a Gigi's cupcake would have been the best thing ever after hiking 21 miles!
Meet the new contenders!
Banana Cream Pie and Double Stuff
I bought the Banana Cream Pie for Ken, I really did. It is not my fault that he did not eat it. I offered it to him, he declined, so I ate it. Isn't that how it works at everyone's house? Yeah, I know I had already eaten my cupcake, but that is not the point.
The Banana Cream Pie was what I like to call a sleeper. It is not something I would normally buy. I am not a huge fan of bananas. This usually shocks people because for whatever reason, all runners like bananas. Well, I do not.
Anyway, back to the cupcake. It was really good! I liked it. It was not super banana-ie, which I am sure helped. Also, you can probably slap buttercream frosting on a brick and I would tell you I love it.
Clearly, the Double Stuff was meant for me. Something that has an Oreo ontop or looks like a Oreo?
Sold. I will take it.
It was really good. I am still learning that chocolate cake, as much as it pains me to say this, is starting to not be my favorite anymore. I know, chocolate cake Gods, please do not hate me. This cake was a dark chocolate cake, which I really liked. Again, it had the wonderful buttercream frosting layered ontop and I ate every morsel of the darn thing.
At this point, the Candy Bar Crunch is still in the lead as the favorite. Don't worry, I will be back next week with more cupcakes.
