Product Review: ChapStick Cupcake Creations
Cupcakes are kind of special in our home. Ten year old Emma, takes her baking very, very seriously. A few years ago, she begged me to stop using boxed mixes for cakes and brownies and requested I stock the pantry with proper baking staples like self-rising flour and dutch cocoa powder. Everything had to be made from scratch! She has plans to open her own bakery when she’s grown up and she certainly practices enough now, making her scrumptious treats a few times a week. She even sells them around the neighborhood to raise money for animal shelters and other causes.
When ChapStick Cupcake Creations arrived for review I can’t say I was happy to see them…It had been years since I’d used ChapStick and my pre-conceived notion was that it would be waxy and thick with a medicinal-ish taste, the way they used to be when I was a kid. But Emma was excited to give it a shot…after all, it is cupcake themed.
Boy, was I ever wrong! Both flavors (Cake Batter and Velvet Cupcake) glide on smoothly, leaving a light, protective, moisturizing and delicious film behind. No waxy feeling at all…just slick in a very good way and moist. I particularly love Cake Batter which has a warm, almost butterscotch-y flavor. Emma is partial to Velvet Cupcake which tastes sweet and rich like a Red Velvet cupcake and leaves just a hint of color behind.
