Coronado Cupcakery - Coronado

Cupcakes.  Cupcakes have been the 'in' thing for a while now since the opening of Sprinkles in Los Angeles and more recently here in San Diego (La Jolla).  I am generally not a 'sweets' person as I would rather have a bite of a rib eye steak than a piece of chocolate, however... some times my taste buds wants just that, a taste of sweetness, after a savory meal.

Coronado Cupcakery was our sweet stop after Lil' Piggy's BBQ on the Ferry Landing.  The Coronado Cupcakery is owned by four sisters who moved back to Coronado after finishing college to open up this shop to share their sweet delights with the public.  They even dedicated a cupcake named 'Mama Rosa' to their mother.  How sweet!  We walked into this little establishment and... wow, there were towers of beautiful decorated cupcakes on colorful round stands.

We seriously took us about ten minutes looking at every single one of them and reading each description of the cupcake.  People came in, ordered, and went... and there we were still deciding which one we wanted to indulge in.

Here are a few of their flavors:

[classic clarice: simple chocolate goodness]

 [carrot cake callie: oooh, carrot cake + cream cheese frosting]

[peppermint patty: not so much into the mint chocolate chip - but hubby is!]

[top tier... sassy jackie: light strawberry yogurt cupcake with a vanilla cream cheese frosting &
bottom tier...
lemon lorena: light lemon cupcake with a lemon filling and vanilla cream cheese frosting]

[black bottom betty: cheesecake in a chocolate cupcake]

My big winner was the Carrot  Cake Callie (now known as Cassie on their website).  Can you say moist, not too sweet, and absolutely heavenly?  The cinnamon carrot cake did not have any nuts and had the perfect amount of cinnamon to create a really darn good cupcake.  The cream cheese frosting was light and very yummy.  I am the person who usually scoops the majority of the frosting off so I can enjoy the cake with a little frosting.  But, no, not this time... I enjoyed the entire cupcake - frosting and all!

The hubby could not resist the Black Bottom Betty with the chocolate chip cheesecake baked into the chocolate cake.  Oh, it was sinful and delicious.

I would like to return to try all their other flavors.  They have them all listed on their website and which days of the week they serve them.  It looks like the Black Bottom Betty is a popular one that they bake every single day along with the Mama Rosa.  The price of one cupcake is $3.25 -- a bit on the high side, but the taste of that carrot cake was worth every penny!  Yum.

Had the red velvet there and washed it down with milk from Burger King (it's cheaper to buy the milk there). The red velvet cupcake was yummy, but not as moist as I'd like it. Nothing seems to measure up to Nothing Bundt Cakes for me!

Can't wait to have a Nothing Bundt cake at my baby shower! They really have a moist, delicious cake.
