I decided to share my love of cupcakes with my longtime friend and her family on a recent visit to Cincinnati, Ohio. To do our Cincinnnati cupcake review, we chose a cupcake cafe close to my friend's house. Manna Cupcake Cafe is about 40 minutes outside the City of Cincinnati. It is located in a cute country town right next to a train station.
Manna Cafe Cupcakes had seven different cupcake varieties and three different sizes. The flavors were; vanilla raspberry filled, bon bon chocolate filled with chocolate ganache, monkey cinnamon, red velvet, chocolate and vanilla their special cupcake of the day was a key lime. Because we wanted to try one of each we opted for all minis except for the key lime which wasn't offeren in a mini size.
Everyone agreed all the mini cupcakes were on very dry side.
We all liked the key lime and the raspberry so much we decided to try the medium size in hopes that the cupcake was a little more moist. Much to our taste bud's delight the medium size cupcake in several flavors were more moist than the minis of the same flavor. The frosting on most of the cupcakes were on the sweeter side but not so bad that you felt like you were eating a spoonful of sugar sweet.
Out of all 8 of us cupcake tasters we all decided that the 2 best cupcakes for our cupcake review from Mannas Cupcake Cafe were:
The Raspberry Filled Cupcake
The sugared raspberry on top tasted perfect
The Key Lime Cupcake
Just the right tart and sweet combination
Both of the frostings on these two cupcakes were very light and fluffy and not nearly as sugary as the other cupcakes.
The owner of Mannas was very friendly and informative on all her cupcake.
