casey’s cupcakes- (NEWPORT BEACH) ORANGE COUNTY
I had never heard of Casey’s Cupcakes before and it wasn’t until I noticed the sticker on the cupcake box that I discovered that Casey was the winner of Food Network’s reality competition show Cupcake Wars in 2011. Although I don’t follow the show and at times made fun of it too (hehe) it made me more eager to try. This particular store is located in the Fashion Island Shopping Center at Newport Beach.
What girly girl wouldn’t love this pink packaging? And when have cupcakes become so gender specific? Oh dear, I’ve even heard news about bakeries creating ‘masculine’ cupcakes now…
The cream cheese frosting was rich and creamy but a little sweet, much like the frosting on a Sprinkles red velvet cupcake. I thought the frosting to cake ratio was slightly heavy on the frosting but that doesn’t bother me. The cake itself was moist and chocolatey and less dense than a Sprinkles cupcake.
According to most online reviews, it seems like the red velvet cupcake is the safer choice.
