So I tried the White Chocolate Wasabi cupcake at Yellow Leaf today. Beautiful cupcake. The light purple plum icing and light green wasabi cupcake were very soothing together….like a lavender plant in bloom. There was a tiny hint of wasabi in the cake, just enough to tell there was something “not sweet” in there. The icing was delicately flavored with sugar crystals sprinkled over it to add a bit of crunch.
Mr Shuck had the Root Beer float. This was also a very mild tasting cupcake. Only a hint of root beer in the cupcake. (Good for me as I don’t like root beer, but then it wasn’t my cupcake.) Icing was scooped on top and tasted like vanilla ice cream. The chocolate (?) straw added some whimsy.
Unfortunately for Yellow Leaf, I had another French Toast cupcake. It wasn’t as amazingly delicious as I remembered, so it was KNOCKED OFF the Top 5 list and replaced with Trophy’s Strawberry Lemonade. I don’t know what I was thinking….
Photos to come shortly.
