Charlotte Cupcakes – Pat-a-Cakes Bakery

As the search for Charlotte's best cupcake winds down, it's time to take a look at another candidate. This time I went to Pat-A-Cakes Bakery in Rock Hill, South Carolina. It's a nice little bakery that has Tuesday price specials, so make sure to stop by on a Tuesday.

Samoan Cupcake

I typically don’t like coconut, so this cupcake had me a little nervous. For whatever reason I do like Samoas though. I figured I’d give this cupcake a shot, but I didn’t have very high expectations for it. There was a giant glob of coconut on top.

The woman who helped me told me it tasted like the cookie. I was skeptical, but without good reason. She was right. This Samoa cupcake does taste like the Samoa cookie.

This giant glob of coconut doesn’t make the cupcake taste like your typical coconut-covered baked good.

The caramel they mixed with it helped create an authentic Samoa taste. That cupcake didn't last too long.

Sweet Potato Pie

I had a tasty Sweet Potato Cupcake a couple of weeks ago at Bow Tie Bakery. I gave that one four cupcake stars.

This one got just as many. It was delicious.

The light, fluffy frosting worked perfectly with the Sweet Potato Pie cupcake.

The combination of cupcake and fluffy frosting reminded me a lot of my mom’s pumpkin pie with whipped cream. You can't hardly go wrong with a cupcake that tastes similar to Mom's pumpkin pie.

I did pick the nuts off the top of the cupcake, but there weren't too many to get rid of.

Oreo Cupcake

The Oreo cupcake was my least favorite. It wasn’t bad by any means. After all, with buttermilk frosting, chocolate syrup and an Oreo cookie on top of a vanilla cupcake, how bad could it be?

The cupcake lacked that certain something to put it over the top though. The flavors didn’t leave me savoring each bite and licking the fork when I was done.

The frosting (the same as the Sweet Potato Pie cupcake) didn't work too well on this one. Maybe a more traditional buttercream or a plain old vanilla would have been better.

Like Meatloaf said, though, two out of three ain’t bad.

The positives: three different flavors and three tasty cupcakes

The negatives: the Oreo cupcake wasn’t as good as the other two, so I guess that’s the only negative

The price: $7.50 for three cupcakes (with a Tuesday discount)
