Kumquat Cupcakery 04-10-2010


Location: 139 Atlantic Ave. (at Crop to Cup Cafe)
Time: 10am

Feelings: When RB said one day, "I bought some kumquats," I cannot tell you how excited I was. It was only because I thought he brought me mini cupcakes from Kumquat Cupcakery. What was in the bag turned out to be the actual kumquats, and I could not show him any more disappointment on my face that day. I did not care for the taste of these tiny and super sour oranges if you must know. RB is known to be able to telepathically sense what I'm craving, but sometimes the message gets a bit fuzzy.

On early Saturday morning when he said again, "I bought some kumquats," I had a tiny bit of hope. Perhaps this time, he brought me those delicious nibbly goodness. In his hand, he carried what I longed for -- mini blueberry cupcakes!

These "Chocolate Blueberry" mini cupcakes, which only sold from April to August, were moist and full of dark chocolate flavor and real blueberries. The blue-purple frosting was creamy and not overly sugary at all. It sure was very small with one bite size, but it was the most dense and satisfactory bite of all cupcake experiences. If this cupcake was a normal size, I might have some serious upset stomach along with guilty feelings, but this sensible size let me enjoy the luscious texture and flavor.
