Restaurant Review (Icedgems Baking)

Mobile Cupcake Wagon
Baltimore, MD

I was told about this mobile cupcake truck that travels all over Baltimore city, and county, by a friend of mine. Who rants and raves about the concept and almost threw their SUV into a 180 turn with the emergency brake to get a cupcake. The owner Christine Richardson studied under the TV chef Rick Stein at his restaurant in Devon, England. The cost of a cupcake is $2.50, a half dozen $12.50 and a full dozen $24.00. This is a cash or check only business also. No Credit Cards are accepted here.

We started with a half dozen to get a wide variety of product and flavors.

We got a:

Vanilla Vanilla Cupcake

Vanilla Chocolate Cupcake

Chocolate Vanilla Cupcake

Chocolate Chocolate Cupcake

Red Velvet (Red Velvet cake with Cream Cheese Butter Cream)

Duche de leche - (Caramel)

So after tasting these cupcakes, I will have to say she makes an amazing Italian butter cream. The piping is done by hand and needs some work, and is not consistent on all the cupcakes. The taste of the cupcakes while made from scratch, were bland and nothing to write home about in my opinion. The Red Velvet cupcake was the best cupcake out of the half dozen selected.

Yes, this is a nice treat every once and a while, no I would not go out of my way to follow her on Facebook or Twitter and drive to her location to get more cupcakes. I like the food concept, mobile cupcake truck but the concept was not done well here.
