A walk into Frosting is a walk into cupcake Disney World. The cheery pink and green décor plus the display and selection of their confectionary delights was enough to make a grownup downright giddy.

After trying one of their Cheesecake cupcakes (cheesecake filling oozed out of the little treasure) at a birthday party, I beat a path to Frosting to have another one of their creations. These are not your grandmother’s cupcakes – not with names like Peanut Butter and Jelly, Prozac, Piña Colada, and Fluffernutter. At my second Frosting experience I tried an Apple Cobbler cupcake dressed with a wonderful crumbled cobbler icing and filled with – what else – apples.

I brought home a Prozac they describe as classic chocolate/chocolate, a Red Velvet and yes, another Cheesecake. Different flavors are featured different days of the week: Monday you can pick up Carrot Cake or Lemon Berry; Tuesday, Orange Creamsicle … On Friday try Elvis’ Favorite (peanut butter icing).

This is only a sampling; check out their website above for the whole rundown. These culinary works of art come in different sizes and prices. Frosting also bakes up truffles, pastries and cakes.

Frosting is opening two other locations, one in D’Iberville and another in Gulfport. They need to open in a bigger market and they’d sell like hot … cakes. How about South Florida? Quick, someone get this place on the Oprah Show. © 2009 All rights reserved.
