REVIEW & GIVEAWAY – Cupcakes Gourmet

By Shannon Gosney

February 9, 2009

I was recently given the opportunity to taste the wonderfully delicious mini-cupcakes from Cupcakes Gourmet. The idea of Cupcakes Gourmet was born after a celebratory birthday party for a special little girl (the owner’s daughter) and the workings of two friends who made huge amounts of mini-cupcakes for community and church events, thus deciding to go into business for themselves. They’ve even gone one step further and begun to offer national shipping!

The cupcakes from Cupcakes Gourmet are super yummy and I enjoyed every bite I took. I sampled the Cafe Collection. This collection includes Cafe Au Lait, Dark Chocolate Mint, and Peanut Butter. They were so good! My husband and kids also loved them. They were gone within a matter of minutes!

Cupcakes Gourmet has offered one of my lucky readers a dozen mini-cupcakes of his or her choice.
