Recently a new bakery opened up across the Hudson River in downtown Jersey City – Cupcake Salon. I picked up a Chocolate Lovers cupcake from here and let me just assure you this is the BEST chocolate cupcake with chocolate buttercream I have ever had. Typically, I’m not a huge fan of chocolate on chocolate, however this cupcake takes the cake. It is so moist and the buttercream is silky and creamy. Unwillingly, I split the cupcake with my husband in an attempt not to put on weight, desserts are my weakness ya know. ~ $3 @ The Cupcake Salon
DISLIKE OF THE WEEK
Frontier’s Coconut Flavor Extract @ Whole Foods
When I came home and tasted this coconut extract I couldn’t believe how “oily” it was, that’s because it is made with cottonseed oil. YUCK! Instead of an extract providing coconut flavor, it adds more unnecessary fat to my dish, and more importantly it doesn’t even taste like coconut. Save yourself SEVEN BUCKS and just use real coconut. Imagine, I could have bought 2 cupcakes for that price.
