Cupcake: Take 8

We were able to review two flavors this week for the ongoing Cupcake Taste Tests.
Smores & Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

When I unveiled the Smores Cupcake and pulled it out, Eva yelled, "I just can't resist that teddy graham!"  And she popped it into her mouth....

This was not one of my favorites.
I do like having both chocolate and vanilla in the icing.
I do like the chocolate chunks in the cake.
But overall, it did not live up to the high expectations the name elicits.
Marj's comment:  "It had such great after-taste!"
Hmmmm.  Is that a selling factor?

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

Now this bite of pure heaven totally lived up to expectations from the chocolate chip laden cream cheese icing to the hidden surprise of smooth cheesecake between the icing and the cake, this was nothing but awesomeness.  The cake was a mix of chocolate and vanilla, but really, who noticed the cake?  It's an afterthought, insignificant in the company of the cheesecake and icing.   I really, really want another one of these. 
Click here here,  here &  here for my last couple cupcake reviews, both of which have links to the other cupcake reviews as well.  And here's a list of all the Cupcake's flavors.
