Cupcake Review - Cupcake's Bakery and Deli

On my way to visit family in Washington I stopped in at Cupcakes Bakery & Deli in Kennewick, Washington.  I didn't have to go too far out of my way to stop here which was great.   The bakery is easy to spot thanks to the brightly coloured cupcake on the side of the building.

Owner and baker Milli Banks was there to help me pick out some tasty looking cupcakes.  It wasn't easy because they all looked so good.  Milli is a bright spot in your day, especially if you're on a long road trip.  She has hospitality down pat and will have you going home with more cupcakes than you planned. Which is not a bad thing because her cupcakes are really good and it's hard to just pick one flavor to try.

While I was at the bakery chatting with Milli about her cupcakes and my love of baking cupcakes I tried her signature Dr. Pepper cupcake.  Now I happen to like Dr. Pepper so I knew I'd like this cupcake.  As I enjoyed the cupcake, Milli told me her daughter doesn't like Dr. Pepper but she likes these cupcakes.  I can see why. The cake is moist and has the perfect hint of Dr. Pepper.  The frosting melts in your mouth and compliments the cupcakes perfectly.


After having a pleasant conversation about cupcakes and baking I got two to go, a strawberry cheesecake and Milli talked me into a sweet potato.  I continued on my way and stopped at one of my favorite rest stops on the way to my families house.  This rest stop has a great view to enjoy while eating my cupcakes.

The strawberry cheesecake had a lovely strawberry flavor with a cheesecake filling. The beauty of this cheesecake cupcake is that it's not heavy.  The cake is moist and light and the cheesecake filling isn't thick and heavy. It's the perfect consistency.

When I say Milli talked me into the sweet potato cupcake I mean she sold it so good I had to try it.  I don't like sweet potato's.  But, Milli said it was one of her most popular and she doesn't always have it on hand because she only uses the best sweet potato's.  Well call me a liar because I liked these sweet potato cupcakes.  They didn't taste like nasty sweet potato's.  In case you don't know, I'm a really picky eater and can't stand the taste of most veggies.  The cake of these cupcakes was moist and light flavored and the frosting complimented it beautifully. I scarfed this cupcake down.

If you happen to find yourself driving through Kennewick, Washington I highly suggest you make a stop at Cupcakes Bakery & Deli and say Hi to Milli for me.
