Charlotte Cupcakes – BW Sweets Bakery

This week I made another stop in Cornelius. I’d been to Just Baked and Maddy's Fatty's, but somehow I missed BW Sweets Bakery. The funny thing is: it’s right on Catawba Ave., one of the main streets that goes through the town.

Free parking is available on either side of the street, though crossing the street proved to be difficult because there’s no stoplight nearby.

Thanks to a driver who slowed down for me, I made it across the street after about a minute of waiting for the traffic to break.

It's a small shop inside, but there's a decent selection of cupcakes available. It wasn't hard to choose three different flavors to get.

Cinnamon Roll Cupcake

I’m pretty sure Granny Mac’s forever ruined me with their massive cupcakes. What this Cinnamon Roll cupcake lacked in size, it made up for in flavor though.

I love cinnamon, so the abundance of cinnamon flavor on and in this cupcake made it an exceptional treat for me.

The frosting was probably the only downside. It was crusty. That being said, it tasted good. The frosting stayed on top of the cupcake too. With some cupcakes, the frosting tower that bakers construct ends up toppling over. There was no struggling with the frosting here. It wasn’t going anywhere!

The cupcake didn’t take long to eat, but it was tasty.

Lemon Drop Cupcake

BW Sweets Bakery bakes a good lemon cupcake! There’s a strong lemon flavor in both the cupcake and the frosting. The frosting is sweet, like any good frosting is, but it also has a nice tang to it.

It’s not an overload of sour though. You won't get that 'sour face' when you're eating it.

There’s the right combination of sugar and sour to make a great tasting cupcake.

Just like with the Cinnamon Roll cupcake, the flavors of the frosting and cupcake worked well together.

Pumpkin Cupcake

For the second time in three weeks, I found a pumpkin cupcake.

After the tasty Cinnamon Roll cupcake and the sweet Lemon Cupcake, I was excited to see how the Pumpkin tasted.

Of the three, this one was the least impressive.

It wasn’t bad. I didn’t regret getting it, but it didn’t compare to Granny Mac’s pumpkin cupcake.

There wasn’t a very strong pumpkin flavor in the cupcake. The frosting, while good, was pretty much regular white frosting. I was hoping for cream cheese frosting instead.

The positives: there was a nice selection to choose from and, for the most part, the frosting and cupcakes tasted great

The negatives: the pumpkin cupcake wasn't as good as it could have been

The price: $9.30 (tax included) for three cupcakes? That’s about $3 a cupcake -- kind of pricey for their size.
