I left them out for a while this time before eating it, unlike last time when I made a rookie mistake and succumbed to my craving before it was time! Waiting for the icing to come to room temperature makes all the difference in the world, seriously.
The black bottom cake itself was just sinful - it almost didn't need the icing on top, almost. I loved the icing on this cake, which was different from the icing on the wonderfully moist red velvet cake (pictured above). I wish I knew what the icings actually were, but unfortunately I didn't remember and was counting on the website to tell me - it doesn't.
This leads me to my quick rant about menus. If you are go through the trouble of putting a menu on your website, please let it be helpful! Let me know what a certain dish contains (don't just call it The Pimlico and think we are psychic) or let me know what prices are. I don't know about you, but I don't like to be surprised, and so I usually always base where I want to eat on the restaurant's menu and reviews of the menu items.
Anyway, coming back to the cupcakes - these are rich and sweet, please have a mug of milk waiting for you (am I weird for drinking milk in a mug? My hubby thinks so). My favorite icing was on the black bottom cupcake (creamier), my hubby raved about the icing on the red velvet cake (it was sweeter and denser). So let yourself be the judge and see which one you like the most!
