The cupcake place we visited is called as their logo states "Batch - a take out bakery, dessert shop, and everything sweet by Chef Pichet Ong." Click on it for the direct link to their site. Above is the picture of the menu and really unique card they have in their quaint little shop. The shop itself is small but very welcoming. I kind of regret not having taken a picture but on the shoppe window is this very comfy white sofa with a coffee table filled with various cooking and retro magazines.
I also picked up this nifty postcard as I love post cards. Well I really love design on it but it turns out to be advertisement for this really awesome website called DailyCandy, which is this unique site that reviews new fashion, food and fun what is really cool is that it's not just a "NYC" thing they have reviews of new stuff from very popular cities like Boston and Seattle. It even goes international to include London also. I'm not very fahsiony but I really love the simple design of the website, anything that's easy to navigate and also looks nice is always a plus in my book. By the way etsy people... they also do advertisements and if this site is in tune with your shop maybe it's a great way to promote your shop.Okay these are the four cupcakes I brought for my buddy... of course she choose them. These are actually 4 of the 5 top cupcakes in the store. We proceeded to sit in a Starbucks and slowly try them. Unfortunately sweet coffee does not go well with cupcakes so I suggest a tall glass of milk. These small cup cakes are about 2.5" x 2.5" (I'm eyeballing it)
The first one we tried was the Carrot Salted Caramel Cupcake. I'm not a big fan of carrot cake but this one was really good! It was moist with a light hint of cinnamon and bits of carrot. The cream inside and the frosting was this wonderful salted caramel lime creme and I was surprised because it had that pitch of sourness that just made the cupcake taste so good.
Next was the Devil Cake and this one was heavy and very chocolaty. Perfect for a chocolate lover and for those who can't handle too much may want to pass on this. The frosting is dusted with this sparkling sugar and it looked almost too good to eat! The middle was this luscious creamy chocolate fudge.
Lemon, Lemon, Lemon cupcake was a bit hard in contrast to the cupcakes above and had this rather plain taste but the lemon inside was pleasantly tart and definitely loads of lemon. The frosting had this hint of lemon too.
I didn't get to try The Velvet though my roomie raved about it. I was at cupcake overload. I think the people looking at us got hungry because all of a sudden they wanted to go eat dessert lolol. So if you're in the area go stop by and see it for yourself.
BTW etsy also sells awesome bake goods. I haven't tried it myself but I've heard rave reviews. Stop by www.etsy.com and search for cakes, candies, cupcakes, maple syrup almost anything you can think of.
Sweet Cupcakes to all!!
