This would be the cake batter cupcake, yes cake batter! Let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised. It was a yellow cake with some sort of custard/pudding filling that tasted exactly like cake batter. I don't know how they did it but it's amazing. Just think of Cold Stone's cake batter ice cream but in a cupcake. Yum! One of my favorites for sure.
This is a peanut butter cupcake filled with ganache and topped with chocolate buttercream. Very rich, pretty good. I'm all for chocolate, I definitely would need to share this cupcake! The frosting is like velvet, very sweet so if you're not a "very sweet" buttercream lover it may be too rich for you.
Red velvet with cream cheese, and topped with adorable heart sprinkles! Red velvet is probably one of my favorite cakes. I had high hopes for this cupcake (so did my sister) it didn't live up to our standards. :( The frosting tastes like cheesecake. Cheesecake you say? How can you not like it? I guess I'm just your typical cream cheese icing gal. The cupcake was very moist, I didn't think it had the typical red velvet flavor. It wasn't strong enough for a red velvet connoisseur like myself. ;)
This would be the Ron Bennington. Chocolate cake, peanut butter filling, ganache icing, sprinkled with what tasted like butterfinger bits. The chocolate cake was very good, peanut butter filling was good, ganache was good. Another one of those cupcakes you need to share with a friend.
In conclusion, I would highly recommend Molly's cupcakes next time you're in Chicago. Very good, great service, and friendly staff! If you're looking for lunch there is a great little empanada place near by. Lito's Empanadas. Mmm! I wish I had one right now.
