I need some help from you and your taste buds. We are having several dozen mini cupcakes at our mini Vegas reception. The problem is, our bakery, Retro Bakery, has some really amazing flavors and narrowing it down it driving me slightly mad. For every dozen cupcakes, we are allowed 2 flavors, which means we get to pick up to 8 flavors. For sanity’s sake, I doubt we’ll pick that many. We also get to pick a flavor for the 6″ cake we’re using as our cutting cake.
The 8 I’ve managed to narrow down for the cupcakes are as follows. We have tried 4 flavors when my amazing friend, TheDearlyWed, sent us a package. Take a peek at all the flavors Retro offers and, if the 8 below don’t satisfy your sweet tooth, feel free to suggest some more.
Red Carpet: Red cake topped with almond buttercream and red glitter sugar
Milk & Cookies: Chocolate-chip cake topped with vanilla buttercream and a freshly baked chocolate-chip cookie.
Cinnamon Toast: Vanilla cake topped with cinnamon buttercream dusted with cinnamon and sugar
Cookies and Cream: Chocolate cake topped with crushed, chocolate sandwich cookie buttercream
Peanut Butter Cup: Chocolate cake topped with peanut butter buttercream and dark chocolate shavings
Mint Chocolate Chip: Chocolate cake topped with green mint buttercream and mini chocolate chips
Pink Lemonade: Lemon cake topped with pink lemonade buttercream and hot pink glitter sugar
PB & J: Vanilla cake filled with strawberry jam and topped with peanut butter buttercream
I’m thinking of going “plain” for the cake and getting Vanilla Loves Vanilla, which is exactly as it sounds: delicious! Alternately, Cinnamon Toast was amazing and might become the cake as well. Who knows! I’d love to have all their flavors. 😀
Pick your top 3 choices and maybe it’ll be amongst our choices!
