Our friend and neighbor works in Berkeley so has access to this great cupcake truck that makes rounds in Oakland and Berkeley called Cupkates, a mobile cupcakery. She offered us a few cupcakes that she picked up while at work and I couldn’t resist.
Part of today’s offerings were a vanilla cupcake and the peppermint chocolate cupcake. So far I’ve eaten half of the peppermint chocolate, the cupcake was really moist and the cream very light (more like whipped cream, not buttercream) with little bits of candy cane on top.
Check out the website for their regular truck route and their flavor offerings. Cupcakes range from $2.50 o $3.00 each. Follow them on Twitter for exact location of the truck. I think they’re closed for Christmas though.
