Last month Cecily and I had a chance to visit our cousin Pam for the weekend at her house in Aransas Pass. Since she moved there last year we hadn’t really been able to hang out and see her new place. So we spent the weekend just catching up, talking, laughing, and enjoying some much needed girl time. We also took a trip to Corpus Christi for a day out on the town… and where do three wild and crazy gals go when they are lookin’ for a good time you ask? Yes, a cupcake bakery…cause that’s just the type of girls we are ;). Enter, Lollycakes Cupcakes.
Upon entering Lollycakes you’re not quite sure what to admire first… the lovely decor or the yummy looking cupcakes in the glass display case. Okay, so obviously you admire the cupcakes first, but still I’m always one to be taken in by the atmosphere. While the place is small it feels very inviting, stylish, and fun. Lavender paint on the walls, a lovely cupcake display, cupcake art, and glass light sconces bring such a touch of class and style. A white couch and a coffee table just beg for you to sit and relax with a cupcake and a friend. While us three girlies opted to sit at the bar along the windows to devour our cupcakes.
Oh happy little cupcakes… all different colors and sizes! It’s not just a display of cupcakes, it’s a display of happiness :p. You know that the cupcakes must be good if they are almost sold out by the middle of the day. But more about that in a minute!
Their menu has a lot of delish flavors to choose from and each with its own cute and quirky name! Such as “The Black Sheep” – cookies & cream cheesecake w/ Oreo crust, “Curious George” – banana chocolate chip pecan w/ cream cheese frosting, and “Strawberry Fields” – strawberry cupcake w/ strawberry buttercream frosting, just to name a few.
Rockin’ cupcake art!!! I would so love to have that in my house! The lady at the counter was telling us about all the cupcake paintings on the walls and the artist that did them just for the shop. Pam had mentioned that she would love to have one for her house so she told her to leave her name and number and she’d have the artist give her a call. So hopefully Pam will have some sweet cupcake art hanging on her walls soon! 🙂
These are the three yummy cupcakes that we chose: “Clay Boy” – chocolate cupcake w/ peanut butter chips and peanut butter buttercream frosting, “Heathcliff” – chocolate heath cupcake w/ chocolate frappuccino frosting, and “Nutty Nuttaurelia” – chocolate cupcake w/ chopped hazelnuts and a nuttella buttercream frosting. Yumo! We actually shared all three cupcakes just so we could get a taste of each kind lol. What can we say we’re indecisive girls, we wanted them all!
These cupcakes were so good it was a little hard to share (good cupcakes make you want to be stingy). The “Clay Boy” was my favorite (I’m always on the look out for a good peanut butter cupcake); with peanut butter chips in the cake, creamy peanut butter buttercream, and a mini peanut butter cup on top, it made for a great peanut buttery experience! For all the Nuttella fanatics out there the “Nutty Nuttaurelia” is for you! The chocolate and hazelnuts in the cake and the Nuttella frosting (Nuttella in frosting?! Genius!) is simply delish. And the “Heathcliff” with its heath bits in the cake and slight coffee flavor in the frappuccino frosting will make any heath lovers day.
It may be kind of a funny fact but we’ve been to quite a few cupcake bakeries (bakeries?…cupcakeries?) in our time and Lollycakes definitely made the grade! With its yummy cupcakes, cute decor, and friendly service, Lollycakes makes the perfect hang out for you and your girlfriends! Cause after all, what better combo than friends and cupcakes?
