Full Disclosure: I paid for these cupcakes with my own money, the opinions are completely my own, and I am not being compensated for this post.
Even though I was only briefly in Milwaukee last week, I was hoping to pick up some cupcakes while I was there. It is a bit of a tradition for me to bring home some sort of sweets for the husband when I go out of town, so I figured I’d give it a shot. I asked my lovely Twitter friends if they had any suggestions for cupcake places in Milwaukee, and they came back with a couple of suggestions, one of which was just a few blocks away from where I was headed! (Thanks Kayla!) So, I headed to Classy Girl Cupcakes.
The shop was really cute. They had several different types of cupcake to choose from as well as cheesecake cupcakes and cupcake push pops! I was temped to get one (or five) of the cheesecake cupcakes, but I wasn’t sure how well they would last sitting in my car for a few hours. The cupcake push pops, however, I could not resist. I’d never seen them before so I had to see if they were as awesome as they seemed they would be!
I ended up bringing home two cupcakes and two cake pops for the husband and I. When I got home we ate the cupcakes and decided to save the cupcake push pops for another day.
The husband had the peanut butter delight cupcake and I had the lemon pound cake cupcake. They were good, but not our favorites. I really liked the flavor of the lemon frosting on my cupcake, but the cake itself was a bit dry.
A couple of days later, we had the cupcake push pops. I got a lemon and a cookies and cream, we shared both of them.
I never know if cupcakes are supposed to be refrigerated if you aren’t going to eat them right away. I always refrigerate them….and that may not have been the best choice for these push pops. The frosting was pretty solidified once we went to eat them, I’m sure they are much better (and easier to eat!) when the frosting is a normal temperature! That being said, they were pretty tasty! I especially liked the cookies and cream, it tasted almost like the cupcakes were made from Oreos! I really like the idea of these pops, and I wish we would have tried them when they were at a normal temperature.
Taste: A-, not our favorite, but pretty good. Bonus points for having cheesecake cupcakes and cupcake push pops!
Cost: A, each cupcake was $2.00 and the push pops were each $3.00. I think that is a great deal for the size and quality of the cupcakes!
Would I go there again? Yeah I think so. I would really like to try a cupcake push pop while it is fresh, and I’d also like to try a cheesecake cupcake!
