Cupcakes Galore

Brandon and I tasted cupcakes from four different locations in order to find the tastiest treats to serve to our guests. It was a tough job, but someone had to do it.

Tasting #1: Dots Cupcakes

Pros: cute decorations, variety of flavors, customizable fondant flowers, adorable shop
Cons: no free tasting, stale cupcakes, a huge disappointment,
Cost: $2.75 per cupcake, $1.50 per mini cupcake
We tasted: Red Velvet, Vanilla Chocolate, Chocolate Lovers', Apple Pie

Tasting #2: Polkatots

Pros: friendly staff, incredibly delicious, free tasting, completely customizable, cuteness factor
Cons: high delivery/set up fee, could not give pricing info right away, pricey
Cost: $3.00 per cupcake, $1.75 per mini cupcake
We tasted: Dulce de Leche, Red Diva (red velvet), Cookies N' Creme, Little Penguin(chocolate w/vanilla frosting)
Tasting #3: Violet's Cakes

Pros: super yummy, immediately in love, free tasting, freshly baked, large, very affordable
Cons: none (except for the fact that they are on vacation during the holiday season)
Cost: $2.50 per cupcake
We tasted: Twix, Strawberry Shortcake, Red Velvet, Carrot Cake, Hi-Hat (marshmallow creme dipped in chocolate)

Tasting #4: Cakes Created With Love (206 S. Glendora Ave., West Covina, CA 91890)

Pros: free tasting, completely customizable, cheap!

Cons: cupcakes were not fresh
Cost: $1.75 per cupcake
We tasted: Red Velvet, Chocolate, Cookies N' Creme

We are most likely going to go with Cakes Created With Love because Donna's pricing is so terrific.

Brandon and I are so thankful that his mother and step-father are picking up the bill for our cake.
