I was so stoked to finally find a bakery in Golden, Colorado….but now I take that back, cause they were the worst cupcakes I have EVER had! Cupcakes Galore & More is a brand new bakery that opened up in late November at 2575 Youngfield Street. I got 3 different cupcakes, Red Velvet, Pumpkin and Cream Cheese and a Gluten Free Cookies and Cream, and she gave me an extra one (unfortunately!!).
The Red Velvet was so artificially dyed red, it looked like they melted a crayon into the batter. I could not taste the cocoa in the cake, which is the main flavor!! The Cream Cheese Frosting was so…wrong; it tasted like artificial flavoring was dumped in by the gallon. The pumpkin cake tasted like boxed spice cake, topped off with some more of the disastrous cream cheese frosting. The actual cake itself was so undercooked it was still “wet”! (And this is the one she gave me two of…one mini and one regular). The regular size one had MAYBE an inch of actual cake… and for $2.75 WTF!!!
Last but not least is the Gluten Free Cookies and Cream cupcake, I had to keep myself from spitting this one back up.
The cake was so dry, and if I didn’t know it was suppose to be cookies and cream, I would have had no clue that it was suppose to be that flavor. The cake almost had a sour nutty taste, that no one, gluten intolerant or not, should ever taste. The buttercream was a over whippy frosting that tasted more like a shortening base than a butter one. This cupcake is a cruel joke! This has had to be the absolute worst cupcake I have ever had in my life!!
And the fact that it looked like a 3 year old with two left hands made them made them even less appetizing!
Sorry to be the deliverer of bad news, but PLEASE don’t waste your money, calories or sanity on this place!!
