My hard drive issues came before cupcakes for a couple of days. I was very grateful for new Yellow Leaf cupcake flavors whilst I was restoring my computer to as close to normal as it can be.
Strawberry Lemonade: I like Trophy’s Strawberry Lemonade better, but Yellow Leaf’s is Very good. The cake is fairly dense with a good texture. The interior photo shows that well. 2 different layered cake flavors is nice. The icing isn’t as strongly flavored as Trophy’s, but Yellow Leaf’s icing has a nice silky feel. The lemon icing wasn’t as flavorful as the strawberry, which was very fruity.
White Chocolate Pretzel: This is probably my second favorite Yellow Leaf flavor and one of my favorite cupcakes so far. My palate is not as sophisticated as it could be, so I don’t know if it was white chocolate cake or vanilla. Either way, it was delicious. There was a layer of white chocolate gluing some pretzel bits directly on top of the cake, then pretzels mixed with white chocolate icing on the top. I love the mix of sweet and salty and the contrast of crunchy pretzel with silky smooth icing.
Black Forest: Was just okay. Chocolate cake with cherry glaze topped with icing. I think of Black Forest as very cherry/chocolate. This one seemed like chocolate cake with vanilla icing. Not much cherry flavor.
Chocolate Orange: I didn’t like this one, but James did. Chocolate cake layered with orange cake topped chocolate glaze then orange icing. The orange tasted a bit artificial.
