To start, if you like super sweet cupcakes, this is NOT the place for you. Patty’s uses a mousse topping rather than buttercream. The mousse is lighter and easier to store and work with, but is also lighter in flavor and sweetness.
I got 3 cupcakes and 2 cake balls. The cake balls are a little overpriced ($3 each, the same as the cupcakes and about 1/8 the size). The confetti cake ball had good flavor but was also slightly grainy and still had the taste and texture of raw flour in the middle. The chocolate chip cake ball was moist and sweet and was probably the best item I had.
I got 2 chocolate cupcakes and 1 red velvet. All cupcakes have a whipped cream in the middle of them matching the flavor of the mousse. The lemon was eaten by a friend before I got to try it.
Chocolate cupcake with chocolate mousse and caramel on top- The cake was very flavorless. It was moist, but I really couldn’t taste anything in the cake itself. The chocolate mousse was very tasty and light, and the salted caramel on top was the true hero of this cupcake. The caramel saved it.
Red velvet cupcake with chocolate chip mousse- As opposed to the chocolate cake, the red velvet was PACKED with flavor. Very moist and delicious. Unfortunately, the mousse lacked flavor, but the chocolate chips made up for it.
Chocolate cupcake with peanut butter mousse- Again, the cake lacked a strong flavor. The peanut butter mousse had a fluffy and light peanut butter taste and crunchy peanuts on top. Overall a decent cupcake.
The store itself was very clean, had many options, and staff was friendly and made sure I knew all of the options available. The cupcakes were good, but I sorely missed the buttercream frosting, although the mousse was a nice change. Overall 4/5, I will most likely return but not very often.
