I don’t have the biggest sweet tooth but I’m always down for half a cupcake or a scoop of ice cream after dinner - esp with wine! I'm also a bit picky with my dessert: I don't like those over-decorated cupcakes that just taste like sugar and cream. But I like Chantal Cupcake because her flavors are so unique and tasty. I started ordering her homemade cupcakes because I thought the ube, or purple yam flavor, was very interesting and can't be found anywhere else. I ordered a dozen because I also wanted to share with neighbors and friends. Everyone loved it!
The sponge was moist, not too sweet but full of rich ube flavor. The butter cream frosting adds smooth, rich, creamy texture to the cupcakes and everything just melts in your mouth! I later also ordered her Romeo and Juliet cupcakes. They are called Romeo and Juliet because guava and cream cheese are known to be the best combo. And man, the little guava square hidden in the sponge mixing with cream cheese frosting creates a whole party in your mouth! So good with white wine as well. Excited to try her dulce de leche mocha cupcakes and matcha green tea chocolate chip cupcakes🍵
Chantal is based in LA and you can order online through instagram or email:
