Review: Katie's Cupcakes

On Jerrie's tip, we hit this new Fairhaven cupcake shop — Katie's Cupcakes — this afternoon. We were tasked with providing her with her pre-birthday visit review... oh, such an arduous task! ;o)

Here's the skinny:

Adorable shop! Fun, cheerful decor, and even a tiny kids' table near a shelf filled with toys, games, and books (for kids and grown ups).

On to the cupcakes... We shared one mini of each type for sale today:

Very Very Vanilla - pretty good, Madeline's fave. Light, sweet, good.
Classy Cupcake (vanilla with milk choc frosting) - eh. No one was a fan of this one...
Coconut (coconut with white chocolate coconut frosting) - YUMMM - I LOVED this one. Joel LOVED this one. Luckily, the kids do not like cake or frosting with shredded coconut in it. Darn. We just split this one. I hope you like coconut...
Black and White (choc with van frosting) - OK. No one but Erik loved this one...
Chocoholic - YUM!! This one was delicious. It had dark choc frosting. Yummy!!
Red Velvet - OK. The frosting was good. Cake - eh. Frosting would be wonderful on carrot cake or hummingbird cake or similar...
Cookies and Cream (choc with cookies n' cream frosting) - This one was a hit. I really liked it. E loved it. M loved it. Joel - eh. (he's tough to impress - claims to be spoiled by all the high-quality homemade treats he gets...)

Sounds fabulous, and what an excellent job it would be to go around reviewing desserts!
