Getting my WICKED fix

When the cupcake craze hit, I was on the hunt for a great tasting and LOOKING (presentation is everything) cupcake bakery in my area. I heard there was one in Azusa/Glendora but i never saw it. Unfortunately it is in a terrible location, but when I was starting my journey back home I saw the small print on the backside of the bakery and quickly hopped into the turning lane!

When I walked into The Cake Mamas' Bakery/Shop, I didn't know what to expect. One of the girls who greeted me was sweet and very loud haha. I decided to take 2 trays of mini cupcakes to test a few flavors, one for me and one for my roomie. I didn't know the ones that I chose were winning designs/flavors for the popular show CUPCAKE WARS. That made me more excited and not surprised that they were $10 per tray. Me and my roommate Crystal went to see the Broadway Play WICKED so it was even a little reminiscent :)

Below is a picture of what i took home. For $10 I think I got my money's worth because it look like an expensive treat. 
 No one wanted to share the experience with me :( So here are my thoughts starting with...

"The Elixir" 
This was one was probably my favorite visually. The clock face was edible of course, but I don't think you would want to eat it. Confession: I bit it.
 The buttercream frosting was so different and looked almost like a custard. It was thick and so full of flavor. The color and texture were amazing...yes I am talking about a cupcake. 
 Too bad I can't say the same about the taste of this cool green cake. It was dry and didn't have much flavor. 

"The Bad Which"
This cake by far is the best I have ever tasted. It was so moist and rich and creamy...ooooohhh lord!
 I wish they duplicated the look in the show as in person cause I didn't really understand this one with it just plopped on top. The edible glitter and little heart were attractive. 
 Mouth is watering so much! I only had a bite or two of each of these little guys but this one...my heart hurt when I forced myself to trash the other half. *Being good* I did taste the salt they mentioned in the description and it was just the right amount. SO YUM.

"The Flying Monkey"
We thought this was a crown! It didn't come with a tail either :/ 
 Again - The frosting was amazing but the cake was so dry and it didn't taste good at all. Caca.

"The Good Witch"
The strawberry filling was soooooooooo good I felt the rolls growing on my body. The topping was amazing. The silver pearl was like little jawbreaker, I had to try it lol. 
 A good pairing would be the ever so popular SoCal desert wine - Stella Rosa. Stella is a very sweet lightly carbonate wine that is sold for about $12-14 at BevMo. (I get it straight from the winery, its cheaper)
 Jude has a good amount of years to go before he is legally able to drink so he had some juice (Albertsons $4) 
 I think I am in love with the chocolate, and I will definitely give another flavor or two ;) before I make my final thoughts about this place. I hope I didn't tempt you too much.
