One of the things I have loved most about this cupcake journey is the recommendations I have gotten from so many people! Recently a friend posted on Facebook that I should check out Sweet Elizabeth’s in Manayunk (Philly) and so the last time I was in that part of town I made a quick stop to check out the cupcakes…and now I know that friend can be trusted for great advice!
Before I tell you more about my experience I want I to let you in on a little secret about myself that I truly hope does not lessen your opinion of me…
– I am not really a big fan of chocolate. In fact, not only do chocolate cake, ice cream, cupcakes, frosting, etc not really do anything for me, I never crave them and would pick vanilla any day over chocolate.
Okay, so now that we have that out in the open you might understand why there was no way I was going to be able to resist the following cupcake…
3 Best Friends…Chocolate Chip poundcake, liquid caramel filling, and salted caramel buttercream
I honestly wouldn’t even know where to begin to describe the goodness that was packed into these 3 Best Friends! There was just the right amount of liquid caramel filling (not so much that you are overwhelmed, and not so little that you feel like you are on a Where’s Waldo mission to find the filling), and the salted caramel buttercream, oh my! How do I learn to make that at home?!?
And just as a friend passed on the recommendation to me, if you are ever in Manayunk, stop by Sweet Elizabeth’s!
