My friend brought over a variety of Frilled Neck Designs Mini Monet Cupcakes that she had bought from the Rocks Markets. I was so excited, because they looked so cute and tasty, and I love cupcakes.
The cupcakes looked so cute in the brown box that I wanted to leave them in the box to admire how pretty they looked. I ended up taking the cupcakes out and D and I ate one, two and three and then gave up.
The first cupcake we ate was the chocolate cupcake, and the icing was really nice, but the cake part tasted very dry. The second cupcake we ate was the coconut cupcake and once again the icing was nice, but the cake part was dry. Lastly we tried the cookies and cream cupcake and the cupcake had the same problem. We were not impressed. D, the not so cake type snob even said the cake part was dry.
I was really disappointed that the cupcakes did not taste very nice, because they really did look cute and the icing is so tasty.
I found it really strange that the company has typos on the labels on their boxes too. Their company is called Frilled Neck Designs, but their labels on the box say “Filled Neck Designs” for the website and email address. However on the paper bag that it comes in, the label is correct. I find this inconsistency to be quite unprofessional.
I guess all cupcakes cannot be perfect….
