Cowgirl Cupcakes

It's only fitting that the last Houston cupcake bakery on my list comes complete with a very Texan name: The Cupcake Cowgirls. Located northwest of Houston in Cypress, the former owner happens to be a winner of Cupcake Wars in 2012.
There were 10 flavors available today and having not had a chance to eat lunch this afternoon when I stopped by, it was hard to control myself from ordering them all. I selected a chocolate chip cookie dough and each cupcake is $3.50.
I was surprised to find out that the vanilla cupcake, which was topped with a cookie, also had a cookie dough ball tucked inside the cake. It wasn't too sweet and the cake and frosting were simple, which prevented it from competing with the flavorful cookie and cookie dough. I opted to take off the cookie to make it easier to eat and also scraped off 75% of the frosting. But all-in-all, it was the perfect afternoon treat that acted more like an appetizer to my eventual late lunch meal.
There are a couple more cupcake places on my radar but The Cupcake Cowgirls was officially the last bakery on my list. Now it's on to packing and trying to cross off a few more bucket list items.
