Mr Shuck called me while I was at the grocery store last weekend to let me know that Sugar Rush bakery was having a special cupcake to benefit Japan Earthquake relief. I thought I should check it out. Of course, I got a couple other flavors as well…
I think that this was a vanilla cupcake with vanilla icing. I didn’t get any other flavors. It was very cute, but bland. The icing seemed to be Italian meringue butter cream: very silky and smooth, not overly sweet.
I think this was called “Bit of Bliss”…it seems like the closest one from their menu… I should have written it down. The chocolate cake had nice chocolate flavor, but was a little dry. The ganache it was dipped it was delicious and rich. This one was my favorite.
I wasn’t overly thrilled with the Strawberry Lemonade cupcake. The cake was okay. It was lemony and fairly moist. The icing wasn’t good at all. It was too sweet and didn’t have much strawberry flavor.
Sugar Rush has decent cupcakes. They aren’t something I’d go far out of my way for, but then it’s only a mile from my house. They have good coffee and a play area for the children, so it’s always pretty busy. It seems like a nice place to hang out.
