Ramona Susan's Bake Shop

South Philadelphia

I recently had a new local bake shop ask us to check out their cupcakes. Obviously I don't say no to free baked goods. These lovely young ladies even dropped them off at my work! Of course, in true Philly Phoodie fashion, I gave them the wrong address and they drove to West Chester. Well, I have never claimed to be good with directions. I do, however, claim to be good with fattening foods. The "unicorn cupcakes" fit that bill nicely.

The cupcakes came in a box with minimalist branding. It looked sleek. And it certainly drew my co-workers' attention when I was seen walking through the cubes with a box of bright pink baked goods.

The "unicorn" cupcakes feature a sugar horse with clouds, pink strawberry icing, and sprinkles around the edges. There is nothing about these that is not over-the-top.

There are even SPARKLES. I know many friends who have little girls that would LOVE these. That's not to say my grown-ass adult friends won't swoon over these beauts too.

But that's not all. The cake itself is a technicolor dreamcoat of rainbow proportions.

The icing was sweet, light and creamy. The cake was moist, airy, and had a velvet consistency. These were not hard to like. I may be a meat-and-bread type of eater overall, but these cupcakes were pretty damn tasty. I think I know what I am bringing to the next kid party I am invited to. Besides a fifth of bourbon.

Celebrate National Unicorn Day on April 9; call Ramona Susan's to get your order lined up!

Yummy!!! These girls made me special order cupcake toppers for a party of mine. I usually dont eat fondant, but it was soooo good! It was soft and sweet. Not hard and crackley. If i loved closer i would most likely order from them all the time. They were super helpful w/my crazy demands and helping me pick a style. They went above and beyond my expectations
