Although my choices were slight (there were only 3 or 4 flavors available and two of those were chocolate on chocolate and mandarin surprise), I ordered what appeared to be the most appetizing: a spice cake with honey butter frosting. From a presentation standpoint, the cupcakes were beautiful. Dressed in perfectly white cupcake liners, sitting atop a prim doily and housed in a white box.
The only thing missing was a picket fence.
When I tasted the spice cupcake, sadly, it was like a bland corn muffin topped with a misshapen ball of slightly sweetened butter. The almond cupcake was equally disappointing. It was also a sad reminder that cupcake abuse does occur in America. The texture was crumbly and the flavor was without direction. Overall The Cakery wins for customer service, price and presentation but loses horribly on taste and texture- which is really what this whole food thing is about.
