Whether it's a blueberry with cream cheese icing or an elaborate Black and White with chocolate and vanilla candy topping, Sweet Love does a good cupcake. We couldn't choose, so we tried both. We were surprised at how well the blueberry flavor muscles through the eggs and milk and all, but the icing is thinner and less fluffy — a little less rich — than the cream cheese varieties we are familiar with. (Have you ever tried a yogurt-based icing? That's what it reminded us of.) Because it's more traditional, we think the Black and White is probably a bigger crowd pleaser. What you get: both chocolate and vanilla swirled cake and icing, but the cake is stronger on the chocolate, and the icing, the vanilla. Moist cake with loose whirls of stiff buttercream and an all-around solid cupcake experience. There was also a Pancake Breakfast cupcake with maple cake and icing and a bacon bits topper. Sounded pretty interesting ... maybe next time?
