I’ve never had giant, delicious cupcakes like these! Loved the Pink frosting! My favorite cupcake was the vanilla with chocolate frosting. The trailer is so cute!

The berry cupcakes were quite good - a little sweet for me, but my wife enjoyed them. The proportions of the icing to the cake was good, and these were definitely fresh and moist. Next door is a cute little lemonade stand, shaped like a...More
