Bakery Review

* * * * *
Bakery: Cake, Hope and Love
Where: Beavercreek, Ohio
Offerings: Cupcakes or 'Cuppies" as they call them.

Store Front
Simple, but Welcoming
The interior was very spacious and clean. It was a nice atmosphere to enjoy our cupcakes in. Only gripe? The Ikea furniture was a tad small and the chairs felt like you were sitting on the ground. They were perfect for my pint-sized eaters though!

The bakery case was on the small side, but they had plenty of different cupcakes to choose from in enticing flavors like hibiscus, honey bee and lavender lemon. My girls and I had no trouble finding ones we wanted to try.

They also offer (they didn't have them when we went) original flavors like At the Movies which is a a sweet buttery cake filled with a milk chocolate center and topped with a vanilla buttercream and sprinkled with coarse salt and buttered popcorn and Breakfast in a Cuppie - a cinnamon spiced vanilla cake filled with a java buttercream and topped with the cinnamon maple buttercream and sprinkled with  crunchy bacon pieces! I've tried so many cupcakes that I would definitely give these unique flavors a try!

What we tried:

The traditional Ohio cupcake, The Buckeye!
This was a tasty cupcake and would definitely satisfy your chocolate/peanut butter craving. But...the chocolate coating on top was really thick and really hard! We couldn't crack it or cut it with the metal forks they gave us. I wished the chocolate would have been a bit softer. We had to smash the cupcake to get the chocolate off. 
It did have a nice chocolate ganache center though.

Lemon Lavender Cuppie
This cupcake was delicious! The cupcake was moist and the frosting was creamy. The flavors were perfect together and not too strong. It reminded me of my favorite lavendar martini!!

I wanna cuppie.
You should take before and after shots of the bakeries; when you and the girls first walk in the door and the aftermath when you are done.
Like the new look of your blog!
