Stop #3 in the Cupcake Crawl
Today I went to Petsi Pies in Cambridge. The Globe article I've referenced for my summer cupcake extravaganza recommended their Whoopie Pie Cupcakes. I was really looking forward to trying once since I love both whoopie pies and cupcakes. But, alas, there were none to be had so I ordered a coconut cupcake instead.
My first thought about this cupcake was, "man, these are dense. my fork is having a hard time passing through the cake." once i managed to gather a hefty piece onto my fork and shove it in my mouth, my second thought was, "hmm. cream cheese frosting with coconut topping. who knew?" but then, soon after, my third thought was, "wait! i love cream cheese frosting! who cares what it's paired with!"
Those three thoughts basically sum up my review of Petsi Pies. Wicked dense cupcakes, which isn't altogether bad. The flavor of the cake was good, though very light. The highlight was the frosting. Very flavorful, not grainy and just the right amount of sweet. The coconut flakes on top were an extra little treat.
