The festive season has begun all across India and no festivity is complete without ample amount of desserts. Recently I have been really liking cake jars, cupcakes, brownies, etc.
Generally, the cupcakes and iced cakes I have come across are either too sweet or tasteless. It has been really hard to find someone who can bake with the ecact balance of flavors. On tasting the cupcakes and cake jars that Lavanya from ‘The Cupcake Closet’ sent me, I thought my search was over!
One of the best cake jars I have ever eaten! And the cupcakes were so pretty and fresh that I didn’t feel like spoiling them only! And the packaging was just too CUTE.
The cupcakes were absolutely soft and full of flavor. The icing had the exact amount of sweetness it needed. The cake jars have the exact amount of crunch they needed with each layer having flavors of its own yet blending perfectly with one another.
The flavors I was sent are-
– Marbled mint chocolate cupcake – A classic marbled cupcake with a minty center filling and rich chocolate ganache to top it all.
– Nutella Ferrero – A chocolate cupcake with a ferrero and nutella center, iced with chocolate mousse.
– Ga Ga bananas– A vanilla cupcake with toffee and bananas, topped with pastry cream.
– Salted caramel magic – a chocolate cupcake with a salted caramel and ganache filling topped with whipped cream.
Being a huge Nutella fan, my favorite out of the four was the ‘Nutella Ferrero Cupcake’. Absolutely divine.
- CAKE JARS
–Biscotti Chocolate Mousse Cake – A rich chocolate caked layered with biscuits and dark chocolate mousse. To top it all garnished with ferrero rocher.
–Chocoblast – A blast of chocolate right at your doorstep! This jar consists of nutella, oreo, chocolate ganache and all the chocolate you’ve dreamed of in just the right proportion.
Both of the cake jars were so tasty that I just couldn’t pick a favourite! Loved them both.
Other cake jars that are available at The Cupcake Closet include salted caramel and chocolate, oreo delight, chocolate mousse, mango cheesecake, etc.
I am definitely getting back to The Cupcake Closet all round the year to satisfy my cravings for some lip smacking desserts!
