My daughter Sam wanted to bring home a box of Krispy Kreme donuts last night after a grueling afternoon at the mall shopping for the girls’ shoes and clothes that we had been postponing for weeks. My husband and I, however, weren’t too keen on Krispy Kreme because we find them too sweet — irritatingly sweet, actually, that I never feel like taking a second piece.
The girls fell asleep in the car on the way home and we couldn’t find Krispy Kreme in Global City anyway so my husband just drove to good ol’ Gonuts Donuts. Good thing that decision turned out to be. According to a sign on the wall, Gonuts Donuts started offering a cupcake line about two months ago.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give Gonuts Donuts cupcakes 8.5. The cakes are soft and moist and the frosting is firm enough that it doesn’t drip YET still not taste like flavored shortening and flour. The frosting of the hazelnuts choco cupcake has real hazelnuts and the peanut butter choco cupcake was just divine. :)
Too bad I can’t tell you how much they cost — I lost the receipt.
