Flavor Selection:   They only had four cake flavors the day we were there but the lady said they do rotate, but they didn't have a full list available, nor have I found one on their facebook page. Something a little different they do is that the cupcakes come un-iced. You can pick if you wanted a flavored filling and what flavor of icing you want. 

Okay, let's get down to business!

This was not one of the original locations on our list since they opened  right around the same time. But after we hear about it we decided to switch on of the locations we selected in Dallas for one right here in Fort Worth. Plus we had really been wanting to check out the new food part - Cowtown Chow Down!

While they give the option to have a filling added to your cupcakes we opted to just pick out the cake and icing. Of course we started with Red Velvet and Cream Cheese frosting. It was the second flavor I was really excited about, Peach with Cream Cheese frosting!!

And the results.............

  • It was a little warm but in the Fall this new food park is going to be great! 
  • The staff didn't really explain all the options with the fillings and different icings, we just sort of had to figure it out. But they were very nice
  • It would have been nice to have a place or something to put the cupcake on verse just a few napkins. 
  • I was VERY excited about the peach flavor, but it didn't even really taste like peach unless you happen to get a peach chunk. :(
  • They just have the icing sitting in containers on the counter and then use an ice cream scoop to put it on the cupcake. Not sure if it was the heat or their recipe (or maybe a combination of both) but the icing was a little runny and make it hard to eat. Plus extra messy, even with a fork! 
The final verdict?  

Sadly, we both gave it a thumbs down. Maybe we should try them again after they have been open a while but not sure if we will or not. 

Well that is 2 down and several more to go...this tour might be extended well into the fall the rate we are going! lol! But we are having fun so that is all that maters!
