Cupcake Afternoon

Since it was my friend's birthday the other day, I decided to use the occasion to try a cupcake bakery that has been on my radar for a while. I even tried to patronize the bakery last year only to get caught in a torrential rainstorm as soon as I parked my car to go to into the bakery. Needless to say, I never got out of my car and almost got stranded because of the rising water on the roads. Houston, I will not miss your crazy storms when I move!
Cake Swirl has actually moved locations from when I tried to visit the bakery last year. It relocated about 5 miles south of its original location from Old Town Spring and into the Houston city limits. They had about 9 flavors available and I (surprise) chose the banana pudding cupcake and got a German chocolate for my friend Rachel. Each cupcake is $3.25. 
Traditional banana pudding is vanilla custard topped with fresh bananas and Nilla wafers. This rendition of the popular southern dessert was a vanilla cake topped with vanilla frosting and filled with a layer of fresh bananas underneath the frosting. The cake actually tasted like a Nilla wafer and the bites with the bananas were delicious. Overall, it was an enjoyable afternoon treat. 

And even though it was a cloudy day with storms brewing, I was safe from the rain today while on my cupcake adventure. Phew!
