Jilly's Cupcake Bar & Cafe Wins Cupcake Wars a Second Time

Jilly's delivered some cupcakes for us this morning, so naturally, we ate them for breakfast. And we must say, we really, really liked them. We're used to getting cupcakes from Jilly's that are so huge, we kind of don't know what to do with them. They're tasty, yes, but daunting. The winning flavors were reproduced in normal cupcake size, which is perfect. They were more moist than Jilly's giant cupcakes, and the fillings were small enough that they didn't detract from the cupcake-eating experience.

The cupcakes also looked just like they did on the show, which was a pleasant surprise. Jilly's seems to take its customers' opinions just as seriously as the judges'. Thanks, guys!

The flavors were somewhat wild (to reflect the Miami theme), but we found them to be a pleasant departure from the everyday cupcakes one might find at a grocery store. It seems that Jilly's had a wonderful experience at Cupcake Wars, and thanks to them, Gut Check had a wonderful eating experience this morning.

If you don't mind though, we're going to go fall into a sugar coma now. Wake us up when it's time for dinner.
