This past weekend my parents were in Ottawa on a little weekend getaway. While walking in the market they stumbled across The Cupcake Lounge. Immediately they texted me to tell me of this place knowing I would be totally jealous! I was quite intrigued because we do not have cupcake shops here. Their website was beautiful! I replied back with a small request, if they had time on departure day, would they PLEASE bring me one home.
Mom and Dad were there right at 11:00 am when the doors opened (my goodness they are good to me) to get my red velvet cupcake.
They were so cute! I could not wait to dive in!
The verdict… After all the anticipation I am sad to say,very disappointed
The red velvet was very dry and tasteless. The cream cheese icing was good but their was barely any of it. It looked like it had a ton, but the cupcake had a very high dome and just a skim of icing. The best part? the little chocolate on the top.
If in Ottawa I would give them another try, but a different flavour.
