The Food Truck Dish: Trailercakes

I am a huge fan of cupcakes.  I have them often from several Dallas and Collin County bakeries. 

Recently I began hearing a lot about a food truck named Trailercakes.  I thought to myself “Trailercakes?  Hmmm, I wonder if the cupcakes are as good as the name.”  So I went to their website to gather more information.

The Trailercakes website boasts a goal to always serve the best tasting cupcakes you’ve ever had, while evoking nostalgic emotions of happiness and bliss.  Pretty lofty goal I’d say.

Last week I finally made a stop at their commercial kitchen in the basement of 740 East Campbell in Richardson.  I went with the notion that these are going to be “good” cupcakes, like the rest…not “great” cupcakes.  As I stepped off the elevator, the smell of fresh-baked goodies made my mouth begin to water and my mind begin the change.

I was greeted by the fabulous Ricardo and he informed me about the selection of cupcakes, their cute names and why I should call ahead early to avoid being sadden by a sellout.

With so many choices, it was hard to make a decision but I purchased 4 mini cupcakes: Strawberry Fields, Hitched, PB&J and their newest creation Cookie Monster.  Let’s take them one by one.

Strawberry Fields-white cake with strawberry frosting topped with a piece of strawberry Pop Tart (I think there were bits of white chocolate in the cake…unsure)

This frosting of this cupcake has bits of strawberry in it! YUM!  I like this one very much.

Hitched-white cake with white frosting

This cupcake is a basic cupcake and is a very good choice if you like something with a little less frill.  I like this one as well.

PB&J-white cake with a strawberry jelly center with peanut butter fluff frosting topped with a Nutter Butter

I originally visited the bakery for this particular flavor.  I love peanut butter!  This cupcake tastes just like a PB&J sandwich…my favorite late night snack.  You must try this!

Cookie Monster-white cake, cookie crumb bottom with a cookies and cream frosting topped with a Oreo

This cupcake tastes just like my favorite cookies & cream ice cream.  I didn’t think I would like it much and that the PB&J flavor would be my top choice but I must say Cookie Monster was a delight and clearly my top choice of the 4 mini cupcakes purchased.

I will still enjoy cakes from other bakeries but Trailercakes are one of the best cupcakes I’ve ever eaten that did not come from my own kitchen.  I love how pure the flavors are and how fresh the cakes taste.

I can not wait to go back and try more flavors.  What I plan to try next…The Tourist.  It has Nutella Buttercream frosting!

I usually stay away from chocolate cupcakes because I don’t care for chocolate cake but Trailercakes are so good that I am willing to try the Slap-Your-Mother Chocolate

Looks yummy!
