I love cupcakes. Yes I am on a diet but I still love cupcakes every now and then. I love to try the highest rated cupcake shops in and around Houston. I recently purchased a new car and decided to drive around and explore different areas. I stumbled upon Oh La La cupcakes in Katy, Tx. Ooh La La has been rated in the top 5 best cupcakes in the city on several websites. The first thing I noticed about the boutique was the drive-thru (what cupcake place has a drive thru!).
Ok these cupcakes were huge! They also had a large selection of cupcakes, cheesecakes, slices of cake, and cookies. To say that I was overwhelmed was an understatement. I decided to stick with my favorite cupcake, red velvet.
Here is the box. The only negative thing I have to say about Ooh La La is that the box is way to small for the size of the cupcake.
This picture does not do the size of the cupcake justice. It took me all day to finish the cupcake and I had to eat it with a fork and knife. So I know the big question is... How did it taste? It really took a lot of time for me to decide what I could compare it to and I still can't think of anything. The cupcake was huge in size but was also light and fluffy. The cupcake did not taste like any cupcake I have had before. It tasted more like a slice of cake, I'm not sure that makes since. I will compare the cupcake to sprinkles because I know most of you have probably tried their cupcakes. The Ooh La La cupcake was soft and fluffy and sprinkles cupcakes are a bit more stiff.
Overall I give this cupcake a 9 out of 10. I cannot give it a 10 because it isn't technically a cupcake if you eat it with a fork. Right?
