It was a random day and I was in a random neighborhood with my wife running an errand, I did not expect to ever take on a Cupcake Crawl, but my partner-in-crime said the magic words, "I just saw a cupcake shop". Well, that is were the story got super sweet and really awesome. I pulled out my iPhone, got directions and since I was already in the mood, I researched several other shops and began my impromptu Cupcake Crawl through Thousand Oaks, CA! Unfortunately there were only 3 shops and one of those shops were closed, but I enjoyed myself anyway...it's cupcakes, I could I not.
First up was For Heaven's Cakes and they boasted the 99 cents cupcakes AND had the most adorable cupcake van ever! There van is used for deliveries which includes birthday parties, deliveries and special events such as weddings. How awesome would it be to have this delightful van to pull up at your location!
I had to purchase several since some were only 99 cents including the cinnamon roll cupcake, pumpkin cupcake and black and white cupcake. I loved the pumpkin cupcake, most and rich and filled with deliciousness!
I then ventured 2 miles over to Frost It Cupcakery and since frosting is my favorite part of the cake, this place was amazing!!!! Even the parking sign made me very happy! Check it out!
The shop itself is also super sweet and full of cupcake quotes and cake trays filled with different treats. I was visiting during the Holiday season so most of their selection was themed after the season. I enjoyed the Gingerbread Cupcake and treated my wife to a Peppermint Cupcake. However, my favorite cupcake is always Vanilla and lucky me, this staple is always on the menu, so I had one and of course it had Holiday sprinkles!
Here is the van. Awesome, right!?!?!
It's pink and looks really sweet....it reminds me of an ice cream truck, I wonder if they have that ice cream truck music and a bell? Now I'm dreaming of cupcake trucks that cruise through the neighborhood delivering cupcakes to all the kids! New business!
Vanilla Bean Frosting and moist, sweet vanilla cake and the ratio of frosting to cake was perfect! If you are going to call yourself Frost It Cupcakery, guess you have to have the frosting pretty plentiful! Lucky Me!
