"We live in an area inundated by the cupcake trend (metro NYC) and, frankly, in most cases that trend hasn't resulted in actual good cupcakes, so when I first read that there is a new cupcake cafe on Sanibel, I wasn't that excited. But then we arrived for our vacation and I thought it'd be nice to bring some midnight snacks back to the condo, so I visited Simply Cupcakes. Bottom line: this place has fantastic cupcakes!
The cupcakes are the thing. First, there is the size. So many places go either mini or maxi with cupcakes, which is annoying a in both extremes. This place gets the size right - they are about the size you would make at home - one can be satisfying, but two are not out of the question. The frosting to cake ratio is also the right balance - you want enough frosting to feel like it's something special, but you don't want a cupcake that is just a platform for some gobbed up mountain of fluff. These folks hit the right amount. The flavors are interesting and well-executed. We tried the key lime and the tuxedo varieties. The key lime cupcakes were filled with the proper sweet/tart/bitter key lime curd we all associate with this part of the world and were a nice moist yellow cake with a creamy white frosting. The tuxedo cupcakes were simple and delicious chocolate cake with a white frosting. Neither was overly sweet and both had complexity of flavor rarely found in cupcake houses.
Simply Cupcakes has managed to produce fantastic versions that should remind us why that cupcake trend got so popular to begin with."
