Cupcake Truck

The cupcake fad is sweeping the nation. You have Cupcake Wars on Food Network. You see cupcake trees replacing wedding cakes. In New York, people now go out for a cupcake instead of a cup of coffee. There are bakeries popping up everywhere that do cupcakes, but none do cupcakes nearly as good (or as awesome) as 3 Girls Cupcakes. But don't take 3 Girls Cupcakes as a fad, they have been around for 2 years.

3 Girls Cupcakes is a cupcake food truck, or cupcake delivery truck, depending on which way you choose to look at it. The girls show up everywhere from the Truck Stop (Crossroads food truck rally that takes place on First Fridays) to a park in KCK on a lazy Sunday. The girls also have their regular customers that they see out on any given Tuesday through Friday on one of their cruises. The weekly cruise schedule is released each Monday, the cruises cover almost all of Kansas City; from 435 & State Line, to Downtown, to Kearney. You can even book 3 Girls Cupcakes for your special event, they are everywhere!

Not only is 3 Girls Cupcakes almost certainly close to where you live, work, or play during the week, but they have the most delicious cupcakes ever! The arrangement varies by cupcake variety. Most cupcakes are hollow (for lack of a better description), filled with a cream filling (more like frosting than like donut filling), and then frosted on top. Some cupcakes come as a traditional cupcake with only frosting (not hollowed and filled with more frosting).

They have their regular 11 flavours, such as: red velvet, peanut butter cup, chocolate chocolate, and vanilla vanilla (which will often come with a special topper to celebrate an event like Mardi Gras, or even the release of the Jason Mraz CD titled LOVE, both seen above and to the right), just to name a few. They also have weekly rotators and special edition cupcakes. Weekly rotators consist of: Sock Monkey, snickerdoodle, the Elvis, Nutella Cheesecake, and Chocolate Cin (one of my personal favs), etc. They even did a chocolate covered pretzel cupcake made with Boulevard's Chocolate Ale (also seen to the right). Its incredibly hard to order only one, becase they are all so good (as shown by the box of cupcakes I brought back from a recent visit to 3 Girls Cupcakes). You can also get mini-cupcakes and frosting shots from the truck (van).

3 Girls Cupcakes is owned and operated by 3 wonderful girls (although the youngest is typically in school), they take pre-orders on their twitter page, 10% of all sales goes to local children's charities, their cupcakes are wonderful, and you do not have to go far to find them. Just check their twitter or Facebook page. They even take plastic and will text or email you a receipt right from the van.
