Los Olivos is such a quaint little town, sprinkled with historic buildings, kitchy shops with odds and ends, and great eateries. We immediately started planning our trip for next year, which will certainly involve a stop there - we're sure to find a cute little B&B. Yes please! And then - we saw it.
There are no words to describe how amazing, cute, fun and creative this place is. The Enjoy trailer was parked outside, as the actual cupcakes are sold inside a wine bar. Two of my favorite things under one roof? Sure. I'm getting more ideas for my own bakery. We went to take a peek at their retro trailer. I wanted to crawl inside and move in. How cute is THIS?
The cupcakes are served inside this equally adorable wine shop - love the building, the porch, the outdoor seating, everything. So welcoming and comfy - yay for Emily's great looking out. That's why she's one of my top researchers.
When we walked in, there was a teenytiny little counter, almost like a jewelry counter or something, lined with beautiful little mini cupcakes in an array of flavors. It was fitting that they were displayed in a jewelry case because they looked like little jewels. Wait until you see these babies.
The cool thing about Enjoy is that they have a lot of wine inspired flavors, and a lot of just really outrageously creative flavors overall. Em and I chose 6, and they were delivered promptly to us in an egg carton! What a great idea! The mini cupcakes were a perfect fit, and I really liked the repurposing of the egg carton. Brilliant! I snapped this photo while Em was inside, adding to her copper pot collection at one of the local shops.
And this....is what was inside, ladies and gentlemen.
These were the flavors we ended up with:
OMG Out of This World Flavors
Chocolate Blackberry Syrah
There is something so inviting and decadent about fruit on a cupcake. Drizzle booze over the fruit? I'm sold.
Sweet Potato Marshmallow
Do I really need to write anything about this one? It was very yummy.
Chocolate Cheesecake Swirl
Black and white - just to dress it up a bit, super yummy, nonetheless.
Toffee Vanilla Cake
Crunchy and creamy together - so sweet!
Oreo Chocolate Mousse
Moist chocolate cake with an oreo baked at the bottom!
They were all beautiful to look at, naturally decorated, and had a taste to match. I will definitely be back!! Much thanks to my loyal research assistant!
Decorations: Simple, clean, elegant. Just my style.
Ambiance - It would have been so cool to walk inside that trailer! But, since it wasn't really the cupcakery itself, but the wine bar, I would give it a:
Overall - An amazing little stop. Cute, kitchy and original. Loved it.
