Where can you go to experience a Coco-Lava, a French Kiss and a Showstopper? What about meeting a Southern Belle, Diva or Beach Bum? Last night I had the opportunity to take a taste at some of these exciting flavors at Maribelle Cakery in Bridal Row of Reading, OH. Tina Gutierrez, Part-owner of Maribelle Cakery, gave myself and other members of the Cincinnati TasteCasting team the opportunity to try out 4 flavors of the most delicious cupcakes I have ever had.
Coco-Lava was our first tasting of the cupcakes. I was swearing up and down that this orange butter cake filled with Belgian dark chocolate truffle was my favorite after only a few bites. The Belgian dark cholcote truffle was one of the exciting suprise fillings that you can find in the cupcakes made at Maribelle’s.
The Diva was the second taste and they call this cupcake “The Diva” for a reason. White chocolate cake filled with Madagascar vanilla bean opera cream screams DIVA of all cupcakes. I have to admit that I did think this was a tasty treat but still my fav was the Coco-Lava!
Southern Belle was my third tasting – that is it, I’m in LOVE! No need to continue on to other cupcakes in my life because I have found the one and only cupcake that will keep me happy for eternity. Red velvet cake with a suprisingly tasty cream cheese icing was to DIE for. I honestly had nibbles of the first two cupcakes but downed all of the Southern Belle minus a sliver that was brought home to the hubby.
Mocha Java was the last tasting, thank god because I don’t think my tastebuds could take any more of the rich flavors. The Mocha Java was a good mix of dark chocolate cake filled and topped with mocha icing to give a chocolaty coffee flavor. I really was almost finished with my water bottle and really wanted to down the gallon of milk that Tina presented the Tastecasting team with just to get down the rich flavor.
All in all Maribelle Cakery has just given me my new love, the Southern Belle, and I’ll certainly justify the cost of $38.00 for a dozen of these yummy cupcakes for my next birthday. If you would like to check out more flavors and other tasty treats from Maribelle Cakery you can visit them online.
Last night, as a member of Cincinnati TasteCasting, I was lucky enough to be the guest of Maribelle Cakery. They were generous enough to provide us with samples their newest creations – cupcakes. You can check out the Cincinnati TasteCasting website here.
