It may surprise you (or not) to learn that Sam’s Club has gourmet cupcakes. This package is 4 for $4.98, which is obviously a Good Deal.
The first cupcake I tried was the carrot, which had light fluffy cake, very tasty, though it could have used a tad more flavor. But the cream cheese frosting was excellent ~ if I were still doing my cupcake table, I’d give it a 10. There was a generous amount and it was soooo buttercreamy nom. Didn’t need the nuts, but they added to the curb appeal. And lookit the adorable carrot!
Next I tried the coconut. As my long-time readers know, I lurve this flavor and am inclined to nudge it up in the ratings just because. Hey, life is unfair! Deal with it, people. But I’d give the Sam’s coconut a 7 in every category. The cake (again) was pleasantly light and fluffy, but a bit bland. The frosting, while all nommed up with coconut, was not buttercream, but whipped vanilla, and had a slightly odd aftertaste. Plus I didn’t think this cupcake was that pretty compared to the others in the package. Surely there could have been a bit of deco to break up the massive snowball effect? Well, judge for yourselves.
Gatsby makes a ruling.
OK then. Watch for my review of the other two Sam’s cupcakes coming soon!
