So what did we get to try? Well, I wanted to try salted caramel crunch REALLY badly, but it was out and so was the milk and cookies :( But the other one on my list to try..probably first on my list was the Hop Scotch, which is a "Vanilla cake topped with vanilla buttercream dipped in butterscotch ganache" and their best selling cupcake. We also tried Mint Chocolate Chip, Maple Bacon and Sprinkled doughnut.
The second best to me was the Mint chocolate chip. Again, the cake was moist (as were they all...and that is a hugggeee thing for me). The buttercream was refreshing and just the right amount of mint. The maple bacon was good, but not crazy good. I like the idea and have always wanted to try such a cupcake. Inside, there was a sweet center with maple flavoring, which was good. The buttercream topped with the bacon bits was also flavorful and yummy. The only thing that didn't thrill me was the bits of bacon in the cupcake. Just didn't work for me, but I'm sure it can work for some.
The sprinkled doughnut was yummy. I love the idea and it really tasted like a doughnut. The sprinkles were fun for the kids and the ganache under it was perfect, but as you know, I love me my buttercream and there wasn't any on this one, so it came in fourth for me.
I am so glad I got to try Retro Bakery on our trip. Definitely make it a stop if you are in Vegas and treat yourself to some wonderfully moist and flavorful cupcakes!
