The Road Trip Cupcake

The last thing I expected myself to do was grab a cupcake as I was driving 1300+ miles out of Florida to Buffalo earlier this week, especially after consuming so many cupcakes in the past month. But alas, I couldn't help but consult The Daily Meal's List to see if any were on my route.

There were about 7 cupcakeries in cities I drove through but there was only one that wasn't too far from the interstate. Abby Girl Sweets, located in Cincinnati--about a mile from the highway, is no. 71 on 2014's Top 101 Cupcake List. Timing worked out perfectly too, since I got a later start than I originally planned and got to the bakery just as it opened.
Even with a good variety of flavors available, I so predictably only had eyes for the Banana Pudding cupcake (I can never say no to a banana cupcake). Each cupcake is $2.75.

This cake was so perfectly fluffy and moist. The banana pudding filling was a delicious addition to the frosting and cake. But to be extra picky, there was too much frosting on top of the cake, which was also a tad too sweet. However, once I scraped off some frosting, it became so incredibly wonderful.
I made it safely to Buffalo after 23 hours solo in the car over two days. Here for six weeks and then off to Chicago in August! Happy Summer!!!
