Today I decided I deserved a Starbucks Mini Peanut Butter Cupcake, a bakery item from their new “Petites” line.
Pros: THE TOP IS UNBELIEVABLY DELICIOUS — and by “top,” I mean the peanut butter cup adornment and the smooth, super peanut-buttery icing.
Cons: I like cupcake batter well enough, but it was such a letdown after I’d eaten the top (I guess I ate it with a top-to-bottom approach; maybe this isn’t the best cupcake-eating methodology). It tasted dry compared to the icing, and wasn’t nearly as flavorful.
In a perfect world, these ingredients would be mushed up into some sort of peanut-butter-icing-cupcake pudding.
