Elizabethan Desserts offers some of the most adorably decorated cupcakes I’ve even seen. They are not only cute, but they have clever names as well. Where else can you find a pistachio cupcake called The Mustachio adorned with a mustache?
The location is interesting. It’s actually located inside a nursery. Once you arrive, there are several signs to direct you towards the bakery. The bakery makes everything from scratch and they offer cupcakes, pies, and cookies.
The cupcakes come in both mini and full sized ones. I chose to get mostly minis so I could sample more.
Once we got our cupcakes, we took them outside to the patio area which has quite a few tables. I took a few photos before digging in.
Here is the black beauty. (Chocolate cupcake with a blackberry chocolate ganache)
Churro cupcake (A cinnamon cupcake)
Monkey Business (A banana cupcake with caramel drizzle)
The plain jane.
This simple white cake is beautifully decorated. I simply adored the name and design.
The mustachio (pistachio chocolate cupcake)
This was FH’s favorite in terms of design. He got a great kick out of the mustahche.
Beez Kneez (chocolate cupcake with honey buttercream)
Overall, we enjoyed the cupcakes. They weren’t the most memorable in terms of taste and flavor, but they are worth a trip, just for the decorations.
