I made it to Orlando’s Food Truck Bazaar at the Fashion Square Mall on a hot Sunday evening. With 22 trucks in attendance, I had my choice of cuisines. My first pick was the bright yellow striped truck, Yum Yum Cupcake. I’m a freak for some sweet treats. Dessert choice, done!
Their menu of cupcakes is a nice blend of old school and new trends. I have been fortunate to ‘taste test’ about half of them. Yum Yum’s cake texture is so unbelievable, a nice balance of density, sponginess, and moisture. I spotted my next cupcake victim….a newbie, the Maple Bacon. They generally sell out, so I kept my eye on the place while I ventured around to find dinner.
An hour later I felt like a stuffed pinata, but if Yum Yum is parked right in front of your sweet lovin’ face, it is a must to take one to go! Waiting in line, I spied the sample still on the shelf so I knew the Maple Bacon was available and within my heated grasp. Order up and ready to head home with my edible treasure.
Later that evening…..I wasn’t sure how this was going to go down. Many trying to create the maple bacon combo, really miss the mark. Not Yum Yum! The second I had it in my hot little hand, the maple and bacon aroma filled my head. One big chomp, to get the maple cream cheese frosting and bacon cake together, what a dream! Real maple and bacon flavors. Not too overly sweet, just a perfect blend of flavors and textures I adore together. Next bite involved the piece of bacon atop this fab treat. OMG….was it candied? My sweet tooth is beyond satisfied! I’ll take my bacon this way anytime.
Awesome flavors available. There is something for everyone, even a delightful Gluten-free Vegan Peachy Keen! HOlla!
