Divine Cupcakes and Yogurt Cafe is the new sweet spot in Charlotte. They had their grand opening October 30th and Vee and I went to check them out.
They offer over 25 different flavors of frozen yogurt and gourmet cupcakes, as well as vegan, gluten-free, and diabetic friendly cupcakes. Visit their website for a full list of flavors and services. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter to find out which flavors are in rotation for the day.
First up, yogurt!
The flavors of the day were Strawberry-Banana, Peach, Vanilla, and Silky Chocolate. Vee and I sampled the Strawberry-Banana. It was smooth, creamy, and delish!
There is also a toppings bar.
And now, for the cupcakes! The cafe is pretty much self-serve. There will be a wall of boxes to choose from, so you can carry your precious cargo home.
Then to left of the boxes, you will see the bright light that is Divine Cupcakes (sorry, just finished watching the movie, Hereafter). I’m hoping there are cupcakes like this in heaven.
We went crazy and got six cupcakes.
Top row, left to right: Chocolate Pecan with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting, White Chocolate Cherry, and Bitter Dark Chocolate.
Bottom row, left to right: Orange Pineapple, Mango, and Caramel.
We taste tested ALL of them when we got home.
My two favs were the White Chocolate Cherry and Bitter Dark Chocolate.
The White Chocolate Cherry is amazing! The icing is dreamy and you will find huge hunks of real sweet cherries on the inside. I believe they are giving Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia ice cream a run for their money.
Now, if you are a severe chocoholic (like I am), the Bitter Dark Chocolate is the cupcake for you. If you are a milk chocolate lover, don’t let the “bitter” part scare you. It’s rich and full of chocolatey goodness.
My third fav was the Mango Cupcake.
The frosting on this is sooooo good. I believe it was some type of buttercream frosting, in which, you can’t EVER go wrong with that.
Vee’s top three were the White Chocolate Cherry, Mango, and the Chocolate Pecan. The Chocolate Pecan is chock full of nuts by the way, for the nut lovers!
I suggest you get thee to the cafe and enjoy a divine treat!
