Last week, IcedGems celebrated its first birthday, and offered an unbeatable deal in honor of itself – buy one cupcake, and get a second one for free. The truck stopped by Hopkins on Thursday, and without a doubt, my fellow cupcake-loving friend Kit Harris and I were there.
The truck parked outside of Charles Commons near 33rd Street, its pink polka-dots impossible to miss. I selected two cupcakes – Key West and Birthday Cake (in honor of IcedGems!). Key West, essentially “Key Lime Pie in a cupcake,” combines vanilla cake with lime zest buttercream icing. Birthday Cake (pictured below) combines Bourbon buttercream icing with vanilla cake speckled with colored sprinkles.
According to IcedGem’s Facebook site, the bakery is creating special Easter-themed cupcakes in honor of the upcoming holiday – the photo I saw appears to be a chocolate cupcake topped with vanilla icing and a Peep. In addition, look for Easter-themed cake balls and Passover specials such as Matzo brittle.
