Endulge Cupcakes is black women owned and began as a dream for two former educators! They pride themselves on baking fashionably scrumptious cupcakes. Let’s get into it:
Endulge sits a colorful neighborhood surrounded by other various stores and stops. However, Endulge catered to the customer with their drive-thru window! Call me fat, but why don’t more cupcake shops have drive thrus? I pulled up to the window and noticed their appetizing menu. They have your typical basics such as vanilla, strawberry, and lemon. Or, you can step your taste buds up and get their banana pudding, cinnamon toast, or red velvet cupcake. Before she even could say how can I help you, I blurted out yes one red velvet cupcake for me please. I looked crazy and apologized, but real fat boys know how tasty a red velvet cupcake can be.
When I took that first bite from of that red velvet, I had to go back to the window and ask “WHO MADE THIS CUPCAKE?”. It was perfectly moist (we all hate this word but it fits). The cream cheese icing was light and worked impeccably. 5 star rating for me! I also, had the chocolate w/ peanut butter cupcake. This was stunning as well. I have never had a more similar reese’s experience. The cake part was superb even with the strong peanut butter icing. Lastly, I had the strawberry cupcake. I am not sure who needs to hear this, but strawberry cupcakes are a top 5 flavor. And this one was quality as hell. The freshness of ingredients was noticeable. The icing was packed with flavor. Next time I hear someone say “it’s dessert time”, I am going to look at them like this and say Endulge..
Vegan Dream Doughnuts sits right by Morehouse University presenting vegan treats to the community. The owner says “it’s a good thing I take pictures, because they last longer than these doughnuts”. I loved these all natural doughnuts. Let’s get into it:
Vegan Dream Doughnuts easily presents one of the most creative menus I have come across. From orange raspberry doughnuts to sea moss infused drinks to blueberry cinnamon rolls. I wanted to order all of these items! This is why you shouldn’t date a pastry chef.. because he’ll dessert you. Wow that was corny, but I know you chuckled.
Anyways, I want to dive into these flavors. Everything was fresh, and the inclusion of fruit into the pastries was perfect. I had a french vanilla donut with almond crisps to start out. The vanilla mixed with the coconut flour was a match made in heaven. It was subtle but very pleasing! Not to mention, the texture reminded me of a light cake doughnut. Next up, I bodied the strawberry and banana donut. This combination is undefeated and to bake this into a donut almost made me cry. Every bite resembled a smoothie with a dash of cheat day. Also, I had lemon & raspberry donut holes. I never would have guessed that flavor profile would be so good with a donut, but it blew my mind. I had to take a deep breath before tapping into this strawberry & blueberry cinnamon roll. As soon I took a bite into, I knew I was not going to be able to stop myself from eating all of it. The cinnamon roll itself was phenomenal, but the fruit element made this an unforgettable dessert. My mom asked me for a bite, and I had to look at her like… #ItsAllLoveButNo
