M surprised the February celebrants (that’s me and F) with a box of Gigi cupcakes each. I’ve tried their custaroons and I was pretty confident that the cupcakes are equally good.
After a whole day of walking while lugging around my box, I was surprised that the cupcakes were still very much intact and photogenic. After taking quick snapshots of the goodies, I began to try each one.
The chocolate cupcake was very dense and moist. It wasn’t the overly sweet type either so eating it will not make you gasp for a beverage. I didn’t like the chocolate ball on top though as it was not as smooth as the cupcake.
The chocolate chip cupcake was fun to eat. It wasn’t as chocolatey as the chocolate cupcake but the chocolate chips added bite making it more enjoyable. I wasn’t very happy with the frosting though as I find it quite grainy or rough.
I read that red velvet is one of their best sellers so I was excited to taste it. Moist and soft just like the other two but it seemed to be a tad sweeter. I think it’s because of the frosting on top. I ended up removing the frosting so that I could enjoy the red velvet flavor.
I can’t wait to try the others especially the CHOCOLATE BACON cupcake. I just love anything with bacon.
According to several sites, a box of 6 costs PHP235. It's a pretty good price for a box of moist and dense cupcakes. :)
