I strive to find the best red velvet cupcakes wherever I may visit. This truck definitely has one of the best ones I've tried. Moist and the cream was not crunchy but soft, just enough sweet to balance the red velvet....yum!!!!! oh, there is seating available so you can seat, chill, have that cupcake and people watch....

Had a seasonal cupcake, chocolate cupcake with strawberry icing. It was a simple moist chocolate cupcake with cream cheese strawberry icing. Nothing crazy unusual, but the flavors were just delicious. Would not hesitate to eat this again the next time I'm in Austin, Thank goodness they have more than 1 location.

It's a food truck, that only serves cupcakes. The cupcakes are SO good, they've been around for years, and managed to step aside from the Great Hotel Massacre (in which all the rest of the trux were shooed away). Seriously good food.

We got the last cupcakes of the night (before 7pm!) and we're so glad we did! The cupcakes were moist and delicious and the perfect size. My husband said his traditional yellow cupcake/chocolate frosting was a bit dry and would have tasted better with a bit of milk. My chocolate/chocolate cupcake was perfect, in my opinion.

Great cupcakes, but a little expensive in my opinion. The cupcakes were moist and had just enough sugar, but $12 for 6 mini cupcakes seemed a little steep for me.

This little gem moves all around, and we caught it when it was in our local off-Austin food trailer park. We got a few cupcakes to split (I recommend the Red Velvet) and enjoyed them all! Probably not somewhere you want to stop frequently (those cupcakes are heavy) but a great treat!
