Brown Betty Cupcakes
When was the last time you had a cupcake? In my case, aside from tasting mini cupcakes at the Foodbuzz Festival last year, it was probably many years ago!
For Lisa‘s birthday a few of us got together for a little cupcake party in Northern Liberties. We got fabulous coffee drinks from One Shot Coffee and an assortment of cupcakes from Brown Betty Dessert Boutique. I selected a strawberry cupcake with strawberry frosting.
It wasn’t good at all.
It was seriously the best cupcake I have ever tasted, and it was even better than Lisa & Stephanie‘s choices! The frosting was smooth and light, but the cupcake was dense, yet airy. The flavor of strawberry was mild, but just enough pulled through in each bite.
I also really liked my taste of Stephanie’s sweet potato cupcake with buttercream frosting. To me it had more of a gentle pumpkin flavor, laced with sweet, sweet bites of buttercream.
The boutique itself is tiny, with a small couch and a couple of chairs. We opted instead to sit outside at One Shot where we could enjoy the fall sunshine. Both are in the Northern Liberties area of Philadelphia, which was hopping on a Sunday afternoon. We had a great time people watching, enjoying cupcakes, and drinking coffee.
If you want a cupcake, a magnificent coffee, and a nice afternoon, Brown Betty Dessert Boutique + One Shot coffee will bring it all to you.
