ToDaY I ChEaTeD – Ivey Cake
So today I went to the lake did my 4 miles and then decided all this cupcake talk I needed a cupcake. I had someone share with me that Ivey Cake in Franklin had the best, which as you know I am a Christie Cupcake fan but I thought maybe I should give Ivey Cake 1 more try, just in case.
Well here to report they don’t hold a candle to Christie Cupcake, not even close! I have become a cupcake expert over the past few months and now can better define the difference. First let me say, I’ve never met a cupcake I didn’t love however, today I have a broken cupcake heart. I took 2 bites from both and tossed them in the trash.
Here we go – Ivey Cake Cupcakes are YUCK – I’m so sorry, I know some of you know Ivey and she seems to be a great person and I’m sure her cakes are awesome but her cupcakes stink. I think there is a stick of butter in the cake, it totally falls apart when you take a bite, and the cake is super dry. *note these were first batch of the day so they should melt in your mouth. The icing is WAY TOO MUCH – it’s loaded with somethin…that makes it think and too sweet and too much.
Will I cheat again? yes, that’s my job as the cupcake queen…and I’ve heard great things about Sprinkles Cupcakes which I have recently found out the Houston store was slotted to open 3 months ago but hasn’t opened yet so HOLD TIGHT MY FELLOW CUPCAKE LOVERS!
Ivey Cake Cupcakes in Franklin – FAILED
I really tried to think of a positive polly spin however….
