The Ugly Cupcake

Yesterday, we went to The Ugly Cupcake in Kingsport, TN.  The store itself wasn't much to brag about.  There was bulk candy along the white walls and a single counter with odds and ends behind it where the cupcakes are prepared.  There was no place to sit inside the store to eat your cupcakes.  The cute factor wasn't there that you expect to see at a cupcake shop.  Although, there was a steady line of customers the whole time we were there. 

We bought four cupcakes: red velvet, birthday cake, peanut butter cup, and orange dreamsicle.

The Red Velvet cupcake was ok. The cake didn't have very much flavor but the frosting was pretty good. Although, there was hardened white chocolate on the top of the icing, which was delicious and made the cupcake much better!

The birthday cake cupcake was pretty mediocre. It was white cake, which was a bit crumbly and dry with chocolate frosting and multicolored sprinkles. The frosting was decent, it was whipped, which isn't my favorite, and the chocolate flavor wasn't very strong.  The sprinkles were pretty much the best part!

The peanut butter cup cupcake was pretty good. The chocolate cake was very good. The peanut butter frosting didn't have a very strong peanut butter taste, which some people might like, but I would have liked a stronger peanut butter flavor for the frosting.  Plus, the Resse's cup on the top was delicious, as always. 

The orange dreamsicle cupcake was probably my favorite. The cake was light and fresh with a nice orange flavor. The icing was orange and vanilla mixed together, which made for a very nice 'dreamsicle' flavor. I would definitely get this one again!

Overall, The Ugly Cupcake was ok.  If it was the only cupcake store, I would go to it.  But because it isn't, I probably would go somewhere else or make my own cupcakes.
