Back in May, we made a little side trip to Divine Bites on the way to Portland. When we went south again last month for VegFest, we stopped back in.
I loaded up with a five pack of minis: Butterfinger, The King’s Favorite, Nestle Crunch, Peanut Butter Dream, and Orange Cream.
The Butterfinger was my favorite: a moist vanilla cake with a tiny bit of chocolate filling topped with vanilla icing coated in crushed up Butterfinger bars. YUM!
The other candy bar themed cupcake, the Nestle Crunch, wasn’t as delightful. The chocolate cake was a little dry and crumbly.
The King’s Favorite is a banana cake with peanut butter icing and a tiny chocolate center. The peanut butter icing was a little sweet, but the cake was moist and flavorful.
The Peanut Butter dream consisted of a peanut butter cake filled with a bit of chocolate pudding and topped with peanut butter icing. This one was a little too sweet for me. It was moist and filled with peanut butter goodness, but also a bit too much sugar. I’m not exactly sure what the chocolate ball on top was, but it didn’t add anything.
The Orange Cream was not good. The orange flavor in the cake seemed very strong and artificial. The icing had flecks of vanilla bean in it and was probably good on its own, but I couldn’t get past the overly orange-ness of it all. This did inspire me for a potential for “O” however. If I decide on Orange Creamsicle, I’m hoping I can make it seem a little more light and natural.
If I lived closer to Vancouver, I’d probably be in Divine Consign frequently, looking for household goods and having a little cupcake treat. For now, I’ll be happy stopping in every now and then on my way to Portland.
