Food trucks are all the rage these days. I don't know about other cities, but these trucks are buzzing through the streets of Chicago like a swarm of bees. They come in all shapes and sizes and carry all different types of cuisines. Being the good friend that I am, I accompanied Matt so he could scope the goods these mobile kitchens had to offer. It just so happens there was a cupcake truck - Sweetie Cakes - mixed in with the sliders, mac n cheese, and tamales. Obviously I had to check it out. I decided on "spice me up"- spiced sweet potato zucchini cake with a brown butter buttercream frosting aka fall in your mouth.1) The Cake - Similar to a spice cake. I liked the flavor a lot, but it had more of a muffin consistency. This makes sense considering the ingredients. 2) icing - good flavor, but VERY sweet. It works with the cake though. 3) Presentation - so, I didn't get to see the cupcake before purchasing which I didn't love. Once purchased I thought it looked delish and obvi loved the holder so I could carry it back to my office without smearing the frosting. 4)creativity - very creative. Can't say that I have come across another sweet potato zucchini cupcake. 5)overall happiness - so happy. As I mentioned earlier it was like biting into fall. The combo was perfect together and I absolutely appreciated that they were delivered right to me!
If Sweetie Cakes parks out front again I will be sure to stop by and try another one!
