The first thoughts I had about entering into the blogging world were actually centered around cupcakes. I’ve somehow become a bit obsessed with cupcakes over the past year and a half or so. I try to find a cucakery in most places I visit and try their wares. Nashville was no different.
My friend and I visited Gigi’s Cupcakes in Nashville last week. It was a very cute shop. I was a big fan of the great photography on the walls – but I’m a sucker for a shallow depth of field. 🙂
We had the White Midnight Magic Chocolate Chip. The cake was a chocolate cake and was very moist but not too dense. The frosting was a cream cheese frosting, which is my preference. It was a pretty good balance of sweet and tart, with a hint of the white chocolate flavor. But I have to say, there was just too much of it. I personally like a good balance of cake to frosting in each bite and this cupcake definitely had more frosting than cake. My friend and I split the cupcake and both had a decent bit of frosting left when we finished.
The cupcakes were served in a bowl, which I’d never seen before. I suppose it works for eating it with a fork, but it didn’t stay in the bowl long. We chose to place it on a napkin instead to make it easier to cut in half.
I wish we’d had a bigger appetite and could have tried more flavors. While I don’t care for so much frosting, I have to say that it was a good cupcake.
