My mom actually asked me to order some home-made cookies from my friend Miren (of http://bestdesserts.multiply.com ) to give away to her friends..she asked me to get 5 dozen of mixed choco chips cookies (actually my sister got a dozen of those hehe) plus my "get-anything-you-want" order (since I'm the one who loves sweets in my family)..I chose to order a dozen of Vanilla cupcakes with choco chips and Creamcheese frosting...when my Tita Jen heard that we will be ordering from Miren, she asked me to get her a dozen of mixed choco chips cookies and a box of classic Creamcheese brownies too..I'm so glad that my bro drove me to Miren's house to pick up my order since I can't carry it and it's continously raining since the night before.
This is actually the first time that I have tasted her cupcakes..I usually order cookies and bars hehe..hmm, these cupcakes are heaven...I give it 5 out 5 rating for the taste and packaging :)
TASTE: I super love the creamcheese frosting! it's not too sweet and it really complements the vanilla flavor of the cupcake...this didn't made my throat itch and I didn't had the "umay" feeling even if I ate a lot.. everyone who tasted the cupcakes told me they are delicious, even those who don't really love pastries.
PACKAGING: Miren is very ingenious..she placed a toothpick on each piece of cupcake on the corners of the box to keep the frostings from being squeezed..and I am happy that my cupcakes are all intact when I arrived home.
Here are some of the pictures I took before I ate them haha..they really look so good right? Miren colored the frosting blue since they would look blah if not done due to the plain white color of both cupcake and frosting hehe :)
