About a year ago, I tried cupcakes from Flying Monkey in Reading Terminal Market. I never posted photos from the experience anywhere, ever. I have them somewhere, but I could never bring myself to edit the horrible white balance that market presented me with.
Flying Monkey’s cupcakes are cheaper than most gourmet cupcake shops ($2.50 each), but are rather small and dense. They keep them refrigerated, which I know makes sense since they use buttercreme, but is not good for the cake. Plus, it makes the buttercreme very hard. In my opinion, all butter creme tastes the same, but who am I? I only take the photos. Over all taste, Flying Monkey gets a B+, B for their unfortunate location. I’d give them an A- if they’d switch to a fluffier icing.
