Upon arriving we were greeted by a friendly staff person who didn't speak much but helped us right away. We both got 2 cupcakes for a total of 4. Each cupcake cost $3.25, which is an average price for a cupcake shop, yet still expensive if you are used to buying them at the grocery store. Gigi's has "cupcakes by day" in which they select 10-12 of their 37 flavors to bake for that day. They have the same weekly menu, and their most popular types can be seen on either a more frequent or daily basis. Isaac got "White Midnight Magic" [dark chocolate cupcake with cream cheese frosting,sprinkled with chocolate chips] and "Mississippi Pie" [chocolate cake with baked in coconut & pecans with a chocolate marshmallow frosting, sprinkled with marshmallows and drizzled with ganache.That was a mouthful!] I bet you can tell who's the chocoholic in the relationship LOL. Since I am not much of a fan of chocolate cake, I went with the "Coconut Cream Pie" [coconut cake, filled with a coconut creme filling, topped with coconut creme cheese frosting and graham cracker crumbs, YUM!] and the traditional "Wedding Cake" [white cake topped with white buttercream frosting and white nonpareils].
Instantly, I fell in love with how much frosting these cupcakes were topped with. Being a fan of good frosting, it excites me when I see someone who doesn't skimp on it! I first tried the Coconut Creme Pie one and was instantly hit with a sugar rush. The frosting was SWEET, and I mean almost sickingly sweet. However, seemed to pair well with the not that sweet cupcake. I looked over at Isaac who had just taken a bit of his Midnight Magic cupcake and he seemed to think the same on the frosting. TOO SWEET. LOL As I worked my way througout the actual cake part, I discovered the coconut creme filling. Oh my heavens, was this something wonderful. The filling was not overwhelming and very tame on the sugar compared to the frosting, which made the combination perfection! It finally made sense, the overwhelmingly sweet tower of frosting paired with a tame cake and finished off with a hint of perfect creme filling. The coconut flavor itself was a little too much (that coming from a coconut addict since the age of 4) but I guess I expected that since all 3 elements (cake, frosting, and filling) were all coconut flavor. I asked how Isaac liked his cupcake and he said it was okay, but was not a fan of the cream cheese frosting, he ended up leaving most of the frosting. I ate half of the coconut one.
