This was one of those purchases that we made purely off the advertising. Ice cream from a company’s little paddock, baby cupcake as the flavour? Easy $9 spend.
The verdict split the house somewhat though. Mrs P was far less convinced of the ice cream’s charms than I.
Being baby cupcake, the flavours live up to the name. Everything is youthfully light and airy; the little cubes of cupcake with blackcurrant icing on top are very cute. There’s a little raspberry tartness in the background of the ice cream, which I mistook for a light lemon flavour, and the way the whole thing works together suggestively hints at a little cinnamon. Think of it like some cupcakes your aunt might make for a kid’s birthday party, and you won’t go too far wrong with your expectations. There’s no 2 Broke Girls, Max’s Homemade Cupcakes Spring Break razzle dazzle, just a light tartness and chewy cupcake texture. So it really comes down to how you feel about cupcakes, and maybe other peoples’ babies. Cute and endearing is in the eye of the beholder, or here, in the mouth of the eater.
Serve in perfect balls at the top of a tiered cake stand in cupcake holders.
