|Cookies & Cream, Lemon/Vanilla, Chocolate, Red Velvet, Coffee, Marble|
Yahhh almost Friday! A partner brought in more of these sinful cupcakes to work and I ate one at 10:30 am because I have the restraint of a 5 year old :( This is my second time I've tried Buzz Bakery & Lounge cupcakes and lord, they are as decadent as they were the first time.
The one I tried was the their signature Cookie Monster/Cookies & Cream (upper left corner). Surprisingly it was not the typical chocolate chip cookie I expected! The mini cookie on top is in fact a cranberry studded oatmeal cookie! The frosting was a rich cream and didn't have much flavor beyond being decadently sweet. The cake part itself was a rather odd mix of chocolate chips, oatmeal, and raisins. There was a mouthful of cookie dough in the center which was a (very) sweet surprise. I feel like they were attempting to add a twist to the typical chocolate chip cookie dough thing but sadly, I must admit, overall I thought this cupcake was a little weird O_o.... It was unique, but weird. I liked the surprise cookie dough center but the whole oatmeal cookie monster thing didn't leave me wanting more. And once again, I feel like Buzz cupcakes = sugar overload. Hello Cupcake in Dupont is much yummier in my opinion. HC cupcakes are smaller, lighter, and less in-your-face-sweet :P but I seem to be in the minority here because Buzz Bakery has higher Yelp ratings :\
