Saint Cupcake Deluxe was giving away free mini cupcakes so we decided to go there instead of plain old Saint Cupcake. Also, why go for plain, when you can have deluxe?
The shop was very cute, but tiny. It is tucked into the alcove of a trendy home decor shop called Noun. Apparently the cupcakes had just been cleaned out by a frantic mother whose own baking had not turned out as expected. The “Dots” were larger than my minis, but smaller than a regular size cupcake. The cupcakes are not made on site, but are brought in from the original Saint Cupcake. We sampled Coconut, Carrot, and Chocolate with Vanilla icing.
The coconut was very nice with a cream cheese icing dipped in toasted coconut to balance out the sweetness.
The carrot cake was moist and delicately spiced, but the icing was a little too sweet (and lacking coconut to help).
The chocolate cupcake must have been okay as I didn’t make any notes about it. I do recall the sugar crystals on top being a bit distracting.
Overall, I think the cupcakes were okay. If I was in the neighborhood, I’d probably stop by, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to pick one of these little cakes up.
One thought on “Saint Cupcake Deluxe in Portland”
I would if only on cuteness factor alone. Those babies are adorable!
