I have long been eyeing Bangerang Bake Shop‘s cupcakes-in-a-jar. They always looked so appealing – a large cupcake filled and frosted with creamy frosting and smooshed into a cute little jar with a ribbon! I made a goal that one of the things I had to try before I left the US was a Bangerang Bake Shop cupcake.
I placed my order in October for a Chocolate Chip Off The Ol’ Block, and a Banana Butterscotch Bad Boy. I was so excited to try them, but unfortunately there was a problem with the shipment and I did not receive it in the specified time frame of 2-3 days. I emailed customer service, and also phoned the post office. Apparently the shipment had not been scanned from the sender’s post office, so tracking was telling me that it wasn’t even in transit yet.
Bangerang Bake Shop was so kind and reshipped my order about a week later, but surprise, my first order arrived before the second did! I was a little wary about their freshness, as it had been a week since these cupcakes were shipped. I put them in the refrigerator and hoped for the best. A couple of days later, my second order arrived in the specified time frame. Now I had four Bangerang cupcakes-in-a-jar!
I knew I’d like the chocolate chip one the best, so I saved it for last and tried the banana butterscotch cupcake first. Bangerang even included two plastic forks!
The first thing I can tell you about this cupcake is that there is no mistaking that this is banana! It’s obviously made with tons of real bananas, and the butterscotch is so rich and creamy. Delicious! The cake itself was definitely delicious, but it wasn’t as soft and moist as I had expected. It was more of a muffin texture, but a very yummy muffin!
Next up, the chocolate chip one. This was one of the Cupcakes For A Cause, where the proceeds would go to the CancerCare For Kids program, so it included a sugar smiley face. This program has ended, so the smiley faces are no longer included in this cupcake.
As I expected, this was definitely one of the best cupcakes I’ve ever eaten. It’s the only chocolate chip cupcake I’ve had that actually tasted like a chocolate chip cookie. The cake was softer and moister than the banana one. The vanilla bean buttercream is to-die-for. The addition of the mini chocolate chips brings everything together and you get one of the most amazing tastes that have ever entered your mouth! This is an amazing cupcake, I was so glad I had two of these babies!
I kept my cupcakes in the refrigerator and reheated them in the microwave before I ate them. I really recommend doing this yourself as well, as it makes the cupcake taste like it’s almost straight from the oven.
If you are looking for a big yummy cupcake for yourself or someone else as a treat, Bangerang Bake Shop‘s cupcake-in-a-jar would definitely be the way to go! :)
