Foodie Review: Molly’s Cupcakes


Seriously, Molly’s Cupcakes has to be my favorite cupcake shop in the Greater Chicagoland area. When I visit any of their locations I always feel like a kid, except I have my own money to spend!

The River East (Streeterville) location is near my workplace where I can easily stop by before my drive home. However, depending on the time of day, you have to hunt for a park. Well today, I had some afternoon PTO, and while driving in the area, there were two parking spaces available. I was quick to grab one!

Although it’s the beginning of March, the flavor of the month carried over from Valentine’s Day. The first option was the VelvetBerry Cheesecake, which has red velvet cake with cheesecake baked inside, plus strawberry cream cheese frosting and topped with dehydrated strawberry powder.

I don’t like red velvet cake of any sort, so I skipped that one.

The second option and the one I choose was the Berry-In Luv, which has strawberry cake, white chocolate mousse filling dipped in ruby chocolate ganache, topped with a strawberry buttercream frosting and a red heart!

Yes it was a lot going on, but my tastebuds were super happy. I got 3 more traditional cupcakes for my home. The Peach Cobbler – you can never go wrong with this cupcake. No matter how many I purchase, I always get this one. LOL! I also got the hubby the Cookies and Cream and Samoa.

All in all, my afternoon was joyous because I was able to get a great parking spot and visit my favorite cupcake shop!
