Molly’s Cupcakes!

They make specialty cupcakes ~$3.25 each (filled), vegan cupcakes, cookies, rice crispies, and little tart treats of all sorts! While I absolutely love their creative flavors, the price is pretty steep for a little cupcake!!

As you can tell, the presentation is adorable!!

On the left you have the Cookies-n-cream cupcake – it’s a vanilla cupcake filled with cookies and cream filling, frosted with buttercream and garnished with a cookie.

On the right is the Mixed Berry Cupcake - It’s a blueberry cake with blueberry-raspberry filling, garnished with buttercream and fresh berries.

Here is the inside of each cupcake with a mini review!

While the cookies ‘n cream cupcake with STUFFED silly with cookie dough, the mixed berry cupcake was scant on filling and the blueberry cake itself only had one blueberry lodged in the entire cake! I was rather disappointed!!! For $3.25, you’d hope for a little more than just tonnes of plain cake and lots of cre
am. Better luck with another flavor?

I present to you, The Turtle – consists of chocolate cake, a caramel filling, a chocolate ganache frosting sprinkled with pecans

This cupcake tastes just as decadent and indulgent as it looks. While the cupcake itself with so moist, fluffy, and chocolate-y, the ganache and caramel filling together were simply OVERLOAD of sweetness! IIf you like lots and lots of sugar and chocolate, this will be the cupcake for you. But if you like a lighter dessert, the turtle will overwhelm you for sure!
