This weekend a took a trip to find a new cupcakery that had opened in the Virginia Beach area. As excited as cupcakes make me, it makes me even more happy to find others who enjoy my affinity for the tiny cakes. Just Cupcakes is located in the West end of the Hilltop Shopping center in Virginia Beach.
The shop is quaint and the people are friendly. I went on the grand opening day and the place seemed very busy in the few minutes I was there to grab the cupcakes. I got a box of half a dozen because I thought I would be sharing with friends later on that evening. Fortunately for me, my evening fell through and I could indulge in the delicious cakes all by myself :)
I have to say that I'm thoroughly pleased with the size, the cake to icing ratio, as well as the moistness of the cakes. Nothing is too sweet. The lemon is amazingly delicious. You can tell by the taste that the ingredients are top notch and they know what they are doing when they bake their cupcakes. The red velvet will knock your socks off. So moist and dense and the icing was perfectly creamy.
Unfortunately my pictures didn't turn out so well so I'm posting a few pictures from the Just Cupcakes website so you can see how great the cupcakes are. If you are in the area I hope you'll stop by and support them as a new local business. You won't be disappointed and I'm sure you'll want to come back for more.
