People at work at starting to spoil me - bringing in Gluten Free treats for me to try! Last week, someone generously brought in a cupcake from Coco Cupcakes on Torbay Road. I had heard of them before, but didn't realize they did gluten free 2 days a week (Friday and Saturday).
The cupcake was a vanilla cake with strawberry infused icing - the icing was really awesome! It was sweet (warning if you can't handle too much sugar!) and really thick (you may need to pace yourself).
You kind of need a fork to attack this thing, but I was fine getting my face half messy :) The cake portion was light, fluffy and had a great taste of vanilla without being too sweet. It paired nicely with the strawberry icing which tasted exactly like real strawberries, and was quite sweet! Mind you, I have quite a sweet tooth so it was all good.
You can see the picture of the cupcake (ignore the mushed top, I tried it before I took the picture) - it's quite large and could be shared or half saved for later.
I am not sure how much they cost - I would guess $4ish but, I didn't ask my co-worker when they brought it in.
I'd go back again - the icing was sooooo yummy! Anyone else try any other flavours?
