At least that is my personal opinion. Finally! At this point, I had taken a bite of (and spit out) more cupcakes than you can imagine. Some of these legendary bakeries made products that tasted liked Crisco or raw butter. But we heard about a new little cupcake shop that had opened in Princeton, New Jersey called The House of Cupcakes and that had won a television show called “Cupcake Wars”. We made our way there and walked in to order.
The short version: House of Cupcakes rocks. They were fantastic. You could tell the shop didn’t have a lot of money for leasehold improvements – no mahogany walls or candy jars, just great cupcakes served by friendly people. I hope they make a ton of money, become widely known, and build a franchise. I wish them all the best in the world.
I have no idea what the House of Cupcakes prices were like; I just didn’t pay attention. They are good, though, so you need to try them if you are a cupcake lover. We have crowned a victor. These crush the cupcakes from all the different places we tried in New York.
