Cupcake Day 2019

December 15, 2019

It's finally sinking in that these are the last few days of this decade. So as a fond farewell to the Cupcake Days of the 2010s, here is my last National Cupcake Day cupcake of the decade (which was consumed a couple days early since I wouldn't have had time to purchase this cupcake on the actual day).

I'd been following Twig Cake Company on instagram for a while now and have been eyeing their beautiful cupcakes that are sold on the weekends at Monarch Coffee. The coffee shop is only a couple miles from my apartment but it took National Cupcake Day for me to finalize get my hands on one.
There was only one (festive) flavor available: gingerbread with salted caramel cream cheese frosting and crystallized ginger, priced at $5.50 (a little $$$ in my 8 years of cupcaking).

I'm so happy to report that this year's National Cupcake Day cupcake was spectacular! It was perfectly moist with a very flavorful cake. It had the right balance between the robust flavor of the molasses-y cake and the tanginess of the cream cheese frosting. I was a little skeptical because of the price but was more than happily surprised by its deliciousness.

Happy National Cupcake Day!
