Cakes Plus - Tampa, Florida

While on my adventurous cupcake tour of Tampa, I found out that a custom cake bakery, Cakes Plus, actually made cupcakes too. That was an exciting new finding!

The first time I stopped by that weekend, they had run out of red velvet cupcakes. I was sad, but promised myself I would return. I went back a few weekends later and found myself elbow deep in red velvet cupcakes!

I decided not to be too greedy so I only got one cupcake. During the drive to my apartment, the cupcake scent filled my car. I have the say that the scent of the cupcake was fairly misleading.

While the cupcake looked delicious, the cake itself was fairly plain. I didn't taste any chocolate flavor. In fact, there was a hint of cinnamon. The texture was okay, the cake was moist and airy. The icing was a whipped cream type frosting. There wasn't any cream cheese flavor at all.

Overall I was really disappointed, especially when I looked at the various cakes in the displays. The decorations for the cakes looked amazing, they made the cake look like they would taste delicious. 

Oh well, I get my quest continues...
