Buttercream Cupcake Food Truck

Buttercream Cupcake Truck has a remarkable, yet not entirely unknown story to the food truck world. A former attorney, Kate Carrara decided to quit her job back in July 2009 to pursue her baking passion - namely for delicious cupcakes! Not really much of a sweet guy myself, I still knew I had to check out the truck in Love Park - it didn't hurt that the GF does, in fact, have a sweet tooth!

Make sure to stop on by and be prepared to have a lovely chat through the window with Kate.

But while I love the personable charm, we're here for the delicious cupcakes!

You have the standard types and the fancies, which encompass different fillings within!

I knew I had to get the GF her all-time favorite (red velvet), but I was more intrigued by the trio of fancies available that day - so of course, I got them all.

Cookies n Cream ($3.25)
Chocolate cupcake, oreo buttercream, crushed oreos, chocolate drizzle & filling

I do like cookies n cream ice cream - so I knew I would like this one. This was dense with chocolate, sweet, and had a nice melange of different textures. The innards were perfectly creamy. Be prepared to have a tall glass of milk with this!

Turtle ($3.25)
Vanilla cupcake, caramel buttercream, roasted pecans, dark chocolate filling & drizzle

The vanilla had roasted pecans which imparted nuttiness to each bite. 
This had a subtly sweeter note to it.

S'mores ($3.25)
Chocolate cupcake, milk chocolate filling, buttercream fluff, & graham crackers

The marshmallow and buttercream fluff was nice and light, 
while the cupcake itself was dense with rich chocolate. 

Red Velvet Cupcake ($2.50)
Cream cheese frosting

Despite the fancy nature of the trio, the GF's favorite was the red velvet - no surprise here! The tangy cream cheese was not overpowering and the cupcake itself seemed to be the lightest. A nice sweet ending to the work week!
