Ghermez Cupcakes

The display of perfectly lined up decorated cupcakes at the red and white store was just too much of a temptation for J&L.

“Ugghhh... I want oneeee!” L proclaimed
“Me toooo!” J chimed. “They’re SOOOO cute!”
So even though we had just had our lunch and were pretty much stuffed, we couldn’t help but settle on a compromise – we’d get the MINI cupcakes! It wouldn’t be too heavy on our already filled stomachs and yet we would still get a dose of a Ghermez cupcake... hehe  :P 
L went with the Mini Red Velvet Cupcake. A red velvet chocolate cake with coconut cream cheese icing.  Some of the bottom bits were unfortunately burnt but overall the cupcake was not too sweet with a good balance of cream cheese, chocolate and coconut. The cake itself was really moist and fluffy, making the perfect texture :)

Though on the other hand, J’s chocolate marshmallow cupcake was a bit of a disappointment. It was a good choclately flavour but nothing too special.

The counter also had a sample tray of generous chunks of 4 cupcakes which we gladly helped ourselves to hehe :p
Fresh Banana Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Icing, Fresh Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Icing, Vanilla Cake with Milk Chocolate Buttercream Icing, Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Icing

The Strawberry Cupcake was made with fresh strawberries and was extremely light and fluffy with the strawberry flavour not being too overpowering. It was surprisingly much better than expected and didn’t have that artificial strawberry taste (reminded us of the fresh strawberry milkshake at Perfection, Rose Bay hehe)
The Banana Cupcake had an eerie resemblance to freshly baked banana bread but with a creamy milk chocolate icing.
The Vanilla Milk Chocolate was nice and rich and was just like eating a moist brownie. The texture was nice with an incredible aroma. Definitely a was guilty pleasure to enjoy hehe.

The Vanilla was not too sweet with a really light and smooth buttercream icing on top :)

Our mini cupcakes and samples was a good compromise after all. There will always be temptations...but sometimes are there are temptations that are just too sweet to pass up ;)

Giving in to the sweet little devils, J bought home a caramel cupcake and another red velvet cake- the more than vanilla but not quite chocolate goodness really gets her hehe :P
Regular Red Velvet ($3.80) 
The caramel cake itself was more firm than the others but it goes well with the sticky caramel layer on top :D
Dulce de Leche ($3.80)
Ghermez makes some of the best cupcakes we've tasted so far :) All their cupcakes had a really soft and fluffy cake base with a light and smooth butter cream icing which are not too sweet overall :) ...Classic flavours made of fresh and fine ingredients with a pinch of glamour and a dash of style as they would say hehe

Nibble on Nibblies! xx
