Changing The Way You Think About Cupcakes
Posted: June 21, 2008
So how do you think about cupcakes? I think of a fun & whimsical treat. Maybe a kid's snack. Or a quick sweet treat I might pick up at my grocery bakery. Well Tony & Malgosia Monje have another idea about cupcakes….theirs is all about a sinful gourmet dessert for us grown ups, The Ultimate Cupcake.
You know you have a good thing when celebrities like Rosie O'Donnell quickly embrace your product. Well, I respect Rosie's opinion but wanted to evaluate these new fangled cupcakes for myself. Tony was kind enough to send along a dozen to our GourmetStation R&D center. Fed Ex delivered around Noon and the cupcakes were still nice & cold with both packaging and product in tact. Fortunately we'd just finished lunch so the cupcakes served as an uplifting Friday afternoon dessert. The first thing I noticed was the amount of icing. Most cupcakes might smear a little of this gooey gold on top but not Ultimate Cupcakes. The icing was piled as high as you might expect on a piece of cake at a 5 star restaurant. The relationship of icing to cake is very important mind you - too much or too little icing and the experience is....well, just not right. It was obvious that quality ingredients are used in these cupcakes because of the creamy rich flavors.
I enjoyed dark chocolate, but you may also purchase vanilla, strawberry, red velvet, pumpkin and lemon poppy seed. Prices are a reasonable $33 per dozen. When I say reasonable, you will know what I mean when you try these cupcakes. They rival any gourmet dessert out there.
Right now the cupcakes are only available in the Dallas / Ft. Worth area. But Tony is hard at work to develop a mail order business that will service the entire US. Thanks Tony & Malgosia for putting a new gourmet spin on an old favorite.
