Sweet Tooth Fairy Review
Okay, I have to admit... If I could have an affair with a food, it would be cupcakes. I love cupcakes. I think they are the greatest idea any foodie ever had. And I love "cupcake porn". I stalk a lot of cupcake bloggers, but there is one in particular who always manages to make me drool just with pictures. I sit and imagine the cupcakes and how they would taste and I just die. But that's just it, it was always imagining. Until yesterday!
I finally made my way to The Sweet Tooth Fairy bake shop in Provo, and I can tell you that I was not disappointed! Now, I feel really bad because I literally spent 20 minutes in there talking to one of the owners, and after all that, I didn't even get his name. Seriously, I'm a brat. I know that it is Megan's brother but I didn't get his name and he was the nicest guy ever! He shared tips with me on making fondant (he said to always use Satin Ice, I think it was called), and he let me try a cake bite (HOLY DELECTABLE!!!), and we chatted about my infatuation with cupcakes. We even talked about credit unions. I can't believe I didn't get his name. I'm rude.
ANYWAY, onto the cupcakes. Sweet, tantalizing cupcakes. I tried the red velvet cupcake, the vanilla cupcake, and the strawberry cupcake. I also bought a black and white cookie. Let me start off by telling you, I don't usually like chocolate. But this cookie was calling my name. And I'm glad it did. Boy, was it good! The frosting was almost a coconut-ish vanilla flavor and it was DIVINE! All of the cupcakes were absolutely melt-in-your-mouth soft and moist and had amazing flavor without being too much. The vanilla was incredible, the red velvet was to die for, but the strawberry? There are no words to describe the amazing-ness of the strawberry frosting. It tastes like it was made straight out of a strawberry. It was SOOOOOO good. Like, good enough that I licked it off of the top of the box when the cupcake was gone. Seriously. I shared these with my sister Shelby who is also heavily infatuated with cupcakes, and her reviews were the same. Fabulous cupcakes. Needless to say, I had cupcakes for lunch yesterday (really).
If you are anywhere near the shop (1227 S. University Avenue in Provo), I really recommend going. Not only are their cupcakes spectacular but the people are wonderful and the shop is darling! Stop in and I dare you to try only one. It's ridiculously hard. If you are on the freeway to somewhere South, get off of the University Avenue exit, go North, and take a right at 1200 South. It's smack-dab in the middle of The Quilted Bear and Hogi Yogi.
I love this place, and I pretty much promise you will, too. Now go and get a cupcake!
