Technically I’m not supposed to eat wheat or dairy… or a few things really (IBS problems) but this past week I have been absolutely obsessing over Whoopie Cakes. Soft, moist, absolutely mouth wateringly beautiful Whoopie Cakes. Then my friend Rebecca started talking about Cake Pops and I was totally ruined. There was still a little bit of hope left for my poor stomach though and that was the fact that the only store was in Grey Lynn.
Then a Newmarket store opened and it was all over.
The desire of my taste buds were talking a bit more loudly then the desires of my stomach bacteria and so on Saturday afternoon I popped into the new Whoopie Cake store in Nuffield st.
Tucked into a tiny shop I actually walked past it at first but once I spotted it I found the usual Whoopie Cake set up – an array of full sized cakes, a row of mini cakes and cake pops galore plus popcorn, a coffee machine and a menu of Whoopie Cake smoothies.
I picked up a Gorgeous cake which is essentially a giant Ginger Kiss – but better and a few cake pops to share around.
While Whoopie Cakes may be a bit on the luxurious side price wise – if I was going to eat a cake, it would be this. (My next pick is going to have to Mighty – Mint Chocolate!!!)
If you want to quench your Whoopie Cake desires for yourself then head along to Nuffield St or 2a Hakanoa St, Grey Lynn!
