Since I happened to be at Vanilla yet again, I couldn't resist picking up another batch of their cupcakes.
This time, we had the Chocolate Raspberry, Pumpkin, and Passion Fruit Blackberry.
One of Vanilla's stuffed cupcakes, and
easily one of my favorites of what I've
had. The cake is standard; the frosting
nice and dark, balanced by the fresh
raspberry and the delicious preserve
on the inside.
Like pumpkin cake, with cream cheese frosting.
The frosting is rich and almost overpowered
the cupcake, but maybe I just ate it wrong.
Passion Fruit Blackberry
Full disclosure: lilikoi is one of my favorite
things. This is a winner. Simple vanilla
cake is accented by the berry frosting,
tartness of the blackberry, and
the intense flavor of the passion fruit.
Probably my favorite of what I've had.
