Cupcake and Cookie

Over the weekend, my LA Cupcakes MeetUp Group met to try web-based bakery, Cupcake and Cookie! The owner and baker, Dorothy Tong, was on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars in December and won the Hard Rock episode! Since Dorothy doesn't have a store front (yet!), we met at a park in Culver City, where she brought her cupcakes to try.

The flavors that we tasted included: Chocolate Covered Banana, Cheesecake filled Red Velvet, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Sea Salt Caramel Vanilla and her Cupcake Wars' winning cupcake - Pink Grapefruit Cupcakes with Guava Truffle Cookies and Rosewater Frosting.

I loved that her cupcakes were moist and the icing not too heavy or sweet, but a perfect pairing. Some of the cupcakes also had a hidden cookie or filling surprise. My favorites were the Red Velvet Cupcake which had cheesecake cookie chunks inside and the Chocolate Cupcake with cookie dough inside. Yum! My husband, being a peanut butter fan, liked the Chocolate Covered Banana Cupcake, which also had peanut butter frosting underneath the chocolate shell.

So, If you're looking for a great cupcake delivery service to cater your next shin dig, definitely give Dorothy a call.
