Today I met up with my lovely friend ess_jay for a long-overdue cake date. I was already going to be in the city to see Edie and Thea for MQFF (which was really excellent), so I suggested we check out the new cupcake shop at QV, The Cupcake Family. Yeah, yeah, I know, cupcakes are so whenever. I don’t care. I heart them.
I had the Blueberry Cream Cheese and ess_jay had the Lemony Sunshine. They were both delicious, and properly cakey. I’ve had a few cupcakes that taste pretty much like packet mix, but these had lovely texture or density. The Lemony Sunshine was especially delicious, with surprise!lemon curd in the middle. Yum!
I forgot to take pictures while we were there, but I did get a couple to bring home:
The Coffee Crunch was very delicious, with yummy walnut chunks and a chocolate coated coffee bean on top.
The Lemony Sunshine got a little but smooshed on the journey, but was still very yum!
Awesome Housemate and I had half of each each, and he immediately asked me where they were from, which is something of an endorsement.
After a taste of ess-jay’s strawberry macaroon, I decided I’d have to get some of my own to take home as well. I got strawberry, chocolate, vanilla and green tea. They were very sweet and moist and chewy and crunchy and AH and I ate them all before I remembered to take photos. I particularly liked the strawberry and vanilla.
