Good news! I was finally able to try out a new cupcakery called Dots. A friend of mine highly recommended this place and claimed it was the best cupcake store. I’ll be the judge of that…
Interior: Cute, modern design. Reminds me of sprinkles.
Cupcakes: I picked out 4 different flavors:
Apple Pie cupcake was good and had bits of apple in it, but it didn’t really taste like apple pie to me, just tasted like a good spiced muffin.
Mint Chocolate was my absolute favorite. The cake was nice and moist, and the frosting had the right amount of mint, but the best part were the chocolate crunchy pearls…they were like tiny thin mint balls covered in chocolate. The texture of the crunchy balls plus the minty frosting and moist cake made this one awesome cupcake.
Strawberry Shortcake was a complete fail. I felt like I was eating a vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting. Where ‘s the strawberry? Well, I think it was the sad little shriveled up piece of nothing hidden inside my cupcake. Maybe they wanted us to find it like a prize, but all I got was a tiny piece of strawberry like it was there by mistake.
Red Velvet was good, but the frosting lacked the cream cheese flavor. So, Sprinkles you get the win for this one.
Overall, I liked Dots (mostly because of their mint chocolate cupcake), but I definitely see some potential and I’m eager to go back to try their other flavors.
