Sweet Divine, St. Louis, MO – Oh Sweet Cupcake of Mine!

In case you are unaware, there is a Cupcake War taking place across our country.  A strategic battle was recently won by St. Louis’ own, the Sweet Divine.  At a recent food truck event, I finally sampled one of their cupcakes.  Ok, maybe I lied…I bought more than one 😀

This post is specifically about the salted caramel.  Look at this beauty (BEWARE:  you may have the urge to lick the screen):

Let’s dissect it.  The brown sugar cake was moist and made a solid foundation.  The icing…are you freaking kidding me?  It was so decadent!  Just the way a dessert should be.  I’m pretty sure it contained the calories of 10 normal cupcakes crammed into one.  It was smooth but had some crunch for texture.  Last but not least, it had caramel sauce drizzled over the top.  Who doesn’t like caramel?  It added just the right amount of sweetness.  This cupcake top-to-bottom is one of my new favorites.

Dive 2 Five Scale:  Food trucks for me are a 2.  You have to look for places to sit, it’s on the move, etc.  However, this should not deter you one bit.  If you don’t want to chase down the truck itself, go check out their storefront at 4521 S Kingshighway.  Personally, I enjoy trying them a food truck event at a place like Creve Coeur Lake.  Then I can make an evening out of sampling food and enjoying the outdoors.
