The answer to that: Most definitely.
Today I went to my favorite doughnut shop, Frost, which has reopened itself as a dessert bar.
I’ve been really excited about the opening and was very disappointed last week when it was postponed due to “contractor issues”. Today was their “soft” opening and I met some friends there after work.
It’s been a long time since I had an amazing cupcake…
I love Italian buttercream since it’s silky and not overly sweet, but the icing on the above cupcake didn’t have a distinctive chocolate/butterscotch flavor. However, the cake itself and the butterscotch filling were so flavorful that the icing wasn’t even necessary. One of my favorites!
If this cupcake was supposed to be filled, this one must have been looked over…it’s highly possible since it was missing the sugar shard as well. This was such a good cupcake that I didn’t miss either of them. The cake was “super moist” as promised. The smashed up caramelized sugar garnish added a really nice texture. Also an excellent cupcake.
My only regret on this visit is that I ended up trying 2 vanilla cakes. I have a salted caramel iced chocolate one in my possession, but I must wait for my blood sugar to go down a bit before I try it.
If you are in the Mill Creek, Washington area…go to Frost! If you are in the Seattle area…it’s worth the drive! I loved their doughnuts and now I love their cupcakes!
