Heyyyyyyyyyy Cupcake!

Hey Cupcake! No, that's not the latest "cat call" I've received while strolling aimlessly along the streets of Austin...It's one of the hottest cupcake trailers around! Yes, I said trailer, not shop, boutique or store, which is one of the reasons it's so great!

Hey Cupcake! is not your average sweet spot...the "Cupcakers" go out of their way to make your stop extra special! Last night was my first HC experience and our guy "Petey" (he claimes this is his real name) was quite the peach. Not only did he indulge my inquisitive mind and disappointment that only 2 of the 7 flavors were still available (to his credit he was closing in 6 min), but he went above and beyond to make my first experience superb.  The 2 flavors remaining were Michael Jackson (choc bottom, cream cheese top) and Double Dose (choc bottom, choc top). Anna went for MJ so I succumbed to the DD, without regrets. The cake was still moist after being made 12 hrs earlier and the icing was the perfect richness complementing the cake. Even I, not being a chocolate cake fan, was impressed!

Beyond the tastiness of the treats, our pal Petey hooked us up with VIP treatment. One small comment that the cupcakes would be better with milk and he appeared with two milks on the house. Then after gorge when our hands were "like grubby little kids hands" he calls out that he has wet wipes for us (in reality they were Clorox wipes, haha, but did the trick). Seeing as it was closing time, Petey pulled up a chair, in the oh so Austin, friendly way and kept us in good company for the remainder of our cupcake date.


My signature cupcake sandwich :)

So next time you have a hankering for a sweet experience, mosey on down to one of the 5 Austin locations and enjoy!
