Three young world travelers and adventure seekers make up V3, and together they compose an awesome travel and exploration blog. One place they frequent for their cupcake fix is the Yummy Cupcakes Burbank Bakeshop - check out the review below!
Macaroons may be the “it” dessert of 2011, but my heart still swoons over cupcakes! Yummy Cupcakes is a frequent stop for me whenever I’m in Burbank. I usually stop in because of their awesome Twitter freebies (if you have a Twitter account and you’re not following them- you should be!). They offer a special Twitter cupcake FREE to the first 20 or so people who mention the secret word of the day. Needless to say, we’ve tried a ton of different cupcakes, some of which I might not have tried otherwise! Today’s special was Southern Honey BBQ. I mean- Are you kidding me?! Southern Honey BBQ (I’ll say it again), this cupcake was divine!
Besides mouth-watering, sugar coma inducing cupcakes, they also have cupcakes in a jar (amazing) and cupcake truffles! Bob really loves the truffles because they are so easy to just pop in your mouth with less mess of biting into a cupcake! How do you like your cupcake?!
The Dessert Patrol made their rounds at Yummy Cupcakes, and they love our flavors!
I hate working out. The only time in my life that I worked out regularly was during the month before my wedding (when I was suddenly overcome with regret that I had chosen to buy a dress in unforgiving silk charmeuse). Generally speaking, though, if I never go to the gym again it will be too soon. But now that I’m eating desserts on a regular basis, I figure it might behoove me to get up off the couch every once in awhile. Thus, I go for walks. Mostly I go for walks to dessert places, but that’s beside the point. Last week I decided to walk to Yummy Cupcakes, which is about a mile and a half from my place.
Yummy Cupcakes was proud to partner with The Make-A-Wish foundation of Greater Los Angeles for their 2010 Season of Wishes.

We designed a special Make-A-Wish Cupcake: A chocolate cupcake centered with whipped cream, topped with baby blue vanilla bean frosting, clear sanding sugar, and a large fondant star!
50% of proceeds from the sale of our Make-A-Wish cupcake went to support this great event. Thank you to everyone who purchased this Yummy Cupcake for a great cause!

LA Weekly stumbled upon an ingenious solution to time consuming holiday meal preparation – try a Thanksgiving pack from Yummy Cupcakes!
Your Thanksgiving Meal... in Cupcakes
By Samantha Bonar Thu., Nov. 11 2010
Don't want to make an entire Thanksgiving dinner? Just skip to dessert. Yummy Cupcakes (with stores in Burbank, Hollywood, Brentwood and Santa Monica) is offering cupcakes with such holiday flavors as Lime Jell-O (with Jell-O in the center), Marshmallow Yam (with marshmallows and walnuts on top) and even Turkey Cranberry (flavored with gravy in the batter).
Clockwise from top right: Lime Jell-O, Turkey Cranberry, Pumpkin Pie and Marshmallow Yam
"There's something about holiday flavors that remind me of growing up and I like that," said Yummy Cupcakes executive chef Tiffini Soforenko. "So I wanted to take those flavors that we are all familiar with and turn them into cupcakes. Even though I don't like the texture of yams, I love the combination of brown sugar, butter, walnuts and marshmallow so I put them together with fresh baked yams in a cupcake that is absolutely delicious with texture I now love. And of course, where would Thanksgiving be without turkey, gravy and cranberry, so I had to create that combination in a cupcake. Top this with our pumpkin pie cupcake and you have your Thanksgiving meal--in cupcakes."
Other flavors among the 200 offered by the family-owned company include Apple Blue Cheese, Caramel Apple, Hot Chocolate and Maple Crème Brulee. Nearly 50 flavors are vegan and 10 are sugar-free. Not every flavor is offered every day, so check their calendar.
"If I had my way, everything would be a cupcake," Soforenko says. Think she's kidding? Tomato Soup flavor is on the menu for December.
