UPDATE: Springs gets its first cupcake truck

Posted By on Sat, Jan 15, 2011 at 11:32 AM

So the Springs Cupcake Truck folks were kind enough to drop us a small sample yesterday.

Overall impression: YUM!

See captions below for more on each flavor:

Weve got the pistachio made with amaretto butter cream; Zippy Lemon made of lemon cake, lemon curd and cream cheese frosting; Rockin Red Velvet, a Southern-style red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting; and Chocolate Overload, chocolate cake, frosting and chips.

Yeah — I put em in the sunlight for a more dramatic photo. Thoughts on the red velvet: true to the classic and loaded with frosting. Sugar toothes will probably love the sparkling sugar top — to me, its almost overload. Thoughts on the chocolate cupcake: Three forms of chocolate = awesome.

A look inside: Note the ample butter cream frosting. Pistachio has always been my favorite gelato flavor, so this ones a no brainer. The lemon might be my favorite of the batch because of the bright lemon curd touch. That I wasnt expecting.

So Portland is known for its food cart scene.

L.A. for its Korean BBQ trucks.

Colorado Springs does sport a respectable amount of Mexican taco trucks, and now it's about to get its first cupcake truck.

When you see me coming, youd better smile.

Check out more about upstart The Springs Cupcake Truck on their Facebook page, and check out next Thursday's Side Dish column for much more on the business, including where to find the truck.

In brief, it's coming to us via owner/chef Pat Kennelly of the Mediterranean Cafe downtown. Kennelly's niece, Denon Moore, runs The Denver Cupcake Truck as an extension of her and her husband's business, Cake Crumbs Bakery.

As an indicator of how successful this venture could be for Kennelly, she says the Denver outfit currently enjoys more than 8,000 Facebook fans.
