After a week of the flu, a couple pre-reading week midterms and the loss of a good friend last weekend, Zed and I finally managed to make it out today for a walk down Whyte.
Starting in Mill Creek we ventured down 82nd and eventually came upon the two day old Flirt Cupcakes shop on 101 and Whyte.
The tiny shop has a couple sleek tables along with some lime green bar stools by the window, but like most coming out of the shop, we were in for some cupcakes to go. Cupcakes topped with blue, yellow and purple icing seemed inviting, and we were hoping for a good variety of flavours under the bright spring colours.
I'm not sure if we arrived too late (around 3:30PM), but there was a disappointingly small choice between chocolate or vanilla/white cake topped with butter cream in the above mentioned variety of colours.
Half a dozen cupcakes set us back $16.95, which we both found steep. In the end they tasted alright, but were definitely not what we were expecting for ~$3 each.
Although we weren't too impressed with Flirt this time around, today was only their second day of business so hopefully the selection and flavours will improve over the next few months.
