Sugar Coma – Dewey’s Cupcakes

If you haven’t yet, you should immediately head over to Dewey’s to try their revamped cupcakes – made with new elements to the recipes, new packaging and a new, smaller cupcake size.

I was recently invited to a Dewey’s Bakery Cupcake Tasting with a group of other interesting folks who have some interest in food and the community. We were asked to test the products and offer feedback. They didn’t have to ask us twice.

We arrived and were greeted with sunny seating in a new space off Country Club Rd., and the head chefs discussed how they were altering the cupcake recipes. They were speaking words I could drool over.

Then came the tasting. We tried 16 or so new flavors in all – my favorites were Snickerdoodle (with that cinnamon-sugar-salty sprinkling on top), chocolate-peanut butter, lemon, and strawberry, which had the brightest strawberry-shortcake flavor.

The fruity flavors really tasted like they had fruit in them, and the chocolate was richer, with Ghiradelli chocolate … the peanut butter buttercream icing was a dollop of heaven.

Below, you’ll see the red velvet, cookies & cream, pink lemonade, chocolate cream-filled, double chocolate and strawberry. We got to take a half-dozen home – mine didn’t last long.

After the tasting, a friend instantly ordered a bunch of the key lime cupcakes for a work event, and I am putting in another order this week. I love the smaller size (for easier munching) and the flavors take it a level above everybody else.

Enjoy on your next sugar coma, friends! xoxo
