Cupcake at Mall of America

We seek out cupcake stores whenever possible.  I love the little cakes and their variety of flavors.  And the cost is usually $3-$4 so a cheap indulgence.

The cupcake is located on the third floor of Mall of America on the west side.  It was pretty late on Saturday night but they still had several flavors left for us to choose from. I went with the Key Lime Pie and Daughter had the Betty Crocker.

Her cupcake was $2.50 and mine was $2.95. Not too bad for the mall prices.  We took them to go back to our room for a later snack.

These were not my favorite cupcakes.  The cake part tasted great and like key lime.  The frosting on mine was not a good match for the key lime.  Tasted too much like plain cream cheese.  Daughters cupcake was really good.

Baked and Wired has my Sister Hooked!

I love to seek out cupcakes or macaroons when on vacation.  Each place has its own twist and it gives you a local glimpse.  For this trip I wanted to try Baked and Wired in Georgetown.

Other places try to claim the local fame but we had only time to try one on this trip.  Baked and Wired was easy to find and we waited in a short line of 10 people on a Thursday afternoon to pick out our treats.


The choices!!!!!  Daughter is not a huge cupcake fan so she got a peanut butter brownie.  it was so large she only ate half that day.  I chose a red velvet cupcake with perfect cream cheese frosting!  Frosting is important and most places get it too sweet!  I also took an OMG for later that was graham cracker crust, marshmallow and chocolate like a s’more.    Sister took a Blondie for later and a coconut cupcake she called amazing!

We sat on the cute little cafe chairs outside on the walk to enjoy our treats.  It was a perfect break and Daughter also enjoyed a hot chocolate from the coffee shop inside.

If you are in Georgetown walk over, I wish they were closer to our home!!!!!
