I ventured to Nostalgia Cupcakes in Annapolis, MD. Their cupcakes are really pretty, and quite tasty. Pictured here are the HOT chocolate cake and the Pink Lady cupcakes. I was surprised that the hot chocolate cake contained chili powder, or pepper of some sort. It was an interesting idea, but it detracted from the chocolate flavor in the cake. The pink lady cupcake was injected with a bit of strawberry jam and topped with vanilla buttercream.
These cupcakes were definitely among the top tier of bought ones, but I still feel like I can make tastier ones at home. I was also a little put off by the attitude of the workers in the store. They substituted a bunch of cupcakes without letting me know (I had ordered and paid for them ahead of time), and weren't very apologetic about it either. I guess I just figured if you had your own cupcake shop, you'd be in a good mood. Or at least smile when someone picked up their order.
Maybe they were just having a bad day.
