If you find yourself stranded in the hustle and bustle of the L.A. county area, you should take the time to indulge in a nice, fluffy, and sweet cupcake. Yes, cupcake. We know the cupcake business is now a competitive one and we have seen the rise of the almighty cupcake shops. We’ve stood in line at famous cupcake shops in New York (Magnolia’s Cupcakes, to be precise) and have been seeking a shop just as delicious to enjoy on the west coast. We can proudly say that we’ve found that cupcake shop we are proud to share with all our friends and make us wish it was us who was as talented as the owner to open up shop. We are talking about Frosted Cupcakery, you can find this charming shop in one of our favorite foodie spots in Long Beach, 2nd street! Recently, while waiting for our table to be called at the Crêperie Café (which we will go into detail in another blog entry), we decided to start of with dessert.
We were impressed by the flavors offered and decided to narrow it down to 3 of their “hi-top” cupcakes which are mini cupcake sandwiches. We had a spread of: chocolate with Nutella buttercream frosting, red velvet with cream cheese frosting & royal white with salted carmel buttercream. Each mini cupcake sold for $1.45, regular size cupcakes are $2.95 each. The employees are very helpful and pleasant, they even offer free candles and mini message picks. These were some of the best cupcakes we’ve had. They were moist and sweet and had a wide selection of flavors to choose from. Not to mention, they also offer milk and delicious hot chocolate (with sprinkles!) to help wash down your cupcake. There is seating area, so you can relax and enjoy your treat and people watch. Make sure you visit Frosted Cupcakery if you happen to be near one and share with us your experience and favorite flavors!
