Honey of a Handcake

Posted by DID 23 Sep 2011 2 Comments

There’s a new cupcake joint in town – Honey of a Handcake – and it’s driving around town in a bright pink van. Specializing in cupcakes, Honey of a Handcake also sells bundt cakes, whoopie pies and cookies. The really friendly owner/baker said she has mostly done catering/corporate events in the past but recently decided to make the leap onto four wheels.

We spotted Honey of a Handcake out at Golden Belt during Third Friday festivities and, per the owner’s advice, tried a classic nilla vanilla cupcake. It was vanilla butter cake with buttercream frosting. She also offers more interesting flavors like coconut strawberry, pink lemonade, ebony and ivory, chocolate snowball and more. Her cupcakes are large and cost $2.25.

The vanilla reminded me of childhood birthday cakes. It was a classic moist, fluffy yellow cake topped with just the right amount of buttercream icing. Since Daisy Cakes rarely makes night appearances, it’s nice to have another solid cupcake choice on the roads in Durham.

    Strawberry is not delicious but in addition most tasty fruit. Strawberry recipe food that created strawberry is definitely sweet. I want strawberry.
