Sugarstalgia Confectionery

Thanks to a giveaway hosted by @biteofmia on Instagram, I won half a dozen pumpkin spice cupcakes made by Sugarstalgia Confectionery (@sugarstalgia on Instagram). Sugarstalgia is a local at home business run by Jessika, a fellow 24-year-old Latina pursuing her love of baking. She bakes cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, basically if it can be baked, she can do it. She does custom flavors and designs, all you have to do is email her at sugarstalgia@gmail.com or dm her on Instagram. As for the cupcakes I received, I knew just by smelling them they would taste the way drinking a hot chocolate while wrapped up in your warmest blanket on a chilly fall night feels. My nose was immediately greeted by warm delicious spices upon opening the box. I would love to put the scent of these specific cupcakes in a candle so my house could always smell like freshly baked pumpkin spiced cake. I also loved the little straw she put in them to make it resemble a latte. It’s the attention to little details that really makes food special. As for the taste, I can only describe it as heaven.  It made me feel as if it was actually autumn in Miami and not still 90 degrees outside. The cake is fluffy, moist, and perfectly spiced. The cream cheese frosting was sweet but not in a sickly way. It was perfectly balanced by the cinnamon added. I would highly recommend reaching out to her if you need custom sweets for any event or if you just want to gorge on some deliciousness at home.
