Vanilla Bean – 1)the cake – so so so dry, blah terrible. It was heavy and like cornbread. The worst! 2) the icing was vanilla bean butter cream - it was watery - not the texture but the taste. Vanilla is so amazing and this was so blan.
Red Velvet - 1)the cake - so dry. not as dry as the vanilla, but not good at all! Also way too much cocoa in the mix. Red Velvet is supposed to be chocolatey, but not an overwhelming chocolate taste. 2)the icing was mediocre. It wasn't thick enough to hold the true consistency of a cream cheese frosting.
Sweet Potato - 1)the cake was semi dry, but not nearly as bad as the other 2. I did like the flavor. 2)the icing was the same as the red velvet - just okay. The cake was topped with sprinkles, which looked nice, but there were too many. They were so crunchy and distracting.
3)presentation - I liked the box of three and the cute little saying "two for me, one for you". 4)creativity - the first 2 were standard, but the sweet potato was creative. I haven't seen that before. David had a great idea to use a marshmallow icing on top and possibly some brown sugar so it would be like a sweet potato casserole! Very clever - that might be one of my next attempts. 5) overall happiness. terribly unhappy! so so bad. I know I can be a tough judge but these were just all around not good. Justin and I split 3 minis and we did not fully finish a single one that's how bad they were. Nicole saved them to take home, I can only imagine how dry they were by the time she ate them.
So David had a banana pudding and Justin and I also split one. The chick at the truck said it would change our lives. I don't know about life changing, but I thought it was pretty good. Justin said it was "excellent" and David agreed with the lady in the truck that it was life changing. It had actual bananas in it which I appreciated. The boys think it could have had another layer of vanilla wafers and possibly a dallop of whipped cream on top. Then it would have been perfect.
All in all this was a HUGE disappointment. I will not stop at this truck again - even if they have the banana pudding. I am mad at them for producing such crappy cupcakes that I don't want to give them any business.
