Creme de la CRAP! I'm sorry, I don't understand their good reviews. I guess they are from people who haven't had really amazing food! They must not know any better ;) I really wish I could give this place a good rating. :( However I cannot. \r
My order wasn't totally correct, I had used a groupon for a dozen cupcakes and they put a flavor on a couple of them that I specifically did not want. Unfortunately sometimes when companies offer groupons it's to bring in business because they aren't generating enough on their own. I believe this was the case here. \r
So wrong flavor aside, these cupcakes were nothing but disappointing. The cake part was slightly dry and the frostings were disgusting. Everything tasted artificial, and the cupcakes all tasted like they came from Safeway!!! Wtf? People pay $33 for these?! There was really nothing I liked about them, and I really wish that wasn't the case... Because I love cupcakes!! I'm going to pawn them off on people at work, as they will eat anything... \r
Oh and this is messed up to say (as I'm reviewing Creme de la Creme), but Cupcake Royale has the BEST cupcakes EVER!!!!! They are sooo amazing, and use real, fresh, natural ingredients (and proudly state that on their boxes). I am a huge fan of places that use organic/natural/local ingredients. You can really tell, the flavor is just fantastic!! They also make their own ice cream, and mix in some of their cupcakes into the ice cream :) My boyfriend said it was the best ice cream he'd ever had! Quality makes ALL the difference. \r
In contrast, the cupcakes from Creme de la Creme tasted artificial, there were artificial colors and flavors and just makes for crap food. Bleh! They were not good at all!!! What a waste of money. The difference with Cupcake Royale was not only was there nothing artificial, but it seemed to me like they put much more effort into producing an amazing quality product. It's all about the details. Plus the cupcakes were double the size at CR! So sorry for the long review, but I will never, ever be back. Yuck!!!!! Go to Cupcake Royale, it's like a night and day difference!
