After sampling cupcakes from various shops and food trucks in Orlando, I am convinced that Sweet! by Holly in Oviedo has the best cupcakes - and some of the most unique flavors - in town. That is why Flavorful Excursions is featuring Sweet! cupcakes in our Facebook contest this week. Enter by midnight on Feb. 28 at www.facebook.com/flavorfulexcursions to win a dozen mini-cupcakes from Sweet!
Here are the reasons I like Sweet! cupcakes so much. First, you can choose from more than 30 different flavors, including three delicious gluten-free options: Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Buttercream, Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream and Red Velvet with White Chocolate Buttercream. Some of the other delicious flavors are: S'mores (with graham crackers crust!), Tiramisu, Heath Bar, White Raspberry, and Carrot. Many of the cupcakes include special fillings and crusts, so they offer a nice surprise when you bite into them.
One of my favorite Sweet! cupcakes is the Dulce de Leche, which is made with spiced cake, dulce buttercream, and a dulce caramel filling. If you are a caramel lover like myself, then this is the one for you. The Toasted Coconut also sports a delicious frosting and coconut filling inside the moist coconut cake. The Black Out (dark chocolate cake and frosting) and the Creamsicle cupcakes are also almong the favorites I have tried there so far. There are so many more for me to try! What is your favorite flavor?
Tip: Every Monday, Sweet!'s mini-cupcakes are only $1 each!
