Guilty Pleasure Alert – Cupcakes! I absolutely loooove cupcakes. While scrolling through Instagram one day I came across Iesha’s Boucakes. Each cupcake on her page is literally art. I knew I had to have them for myself.
There are two different sizes offered, the small or the large. I went with the large which consists of 12 regular sized cupcakes and 6 mini ones. She asked me what flavors I wanted (you can have two for the large box), as well as my preference for color and box design. I opted for the vanilla and chocolate because I was going to be sharing with my family and I wasn’t sure how adventurous they would want to be, but I love that she offers so many great flavors. Beyond chocolate and vanilla, she offers lemon, strawberry, orange cream, birthday cake and coffee. So many great options and after this first experience, I can’t wait to try them all. I let her choose and surprise me with the color and box design.
At this time, it is pick-up only and she’s located over in Surrey. She has a contactless pick-up table set up right outside her door which is nice. Payment was done through e-transfer. Her page also advises that she is foodsafe certified.
My first peek at my boucakes box had me insanely impressed. I could not wait to get them home to take a closer look.
The cupcakes were incredibly beautiful. She created a bouquet that looked exactly like real flowers. Almost too pretty to eat. She put so much detail into each flower, even had edible gold sparkles on one. Her packaging was a wonderful way to showcase the cupcakes – it reminded me of a flower wall. My family was ooohing and aaaahing along with me.
Surprise surprise – the cupcakes are delicious! I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure if they would be. With all the detail that went into the look of them, I wondered if the taste would be compromised. These are sooo good! Fluffy and airy cake with a sweet buttercream icing. Both flavors were equally wonderful. I polished off several (don’t judge, they were soo good!). Everyone in my family enjoyed them too. I’m excited to try the other flavors next.
Imagine sending someone or better yet, getting a bouquet of cupcakes instead of flowers. How unique and cool. I definitely recommend Iesha’s Boucakes.
