Latest Cupcakes-A-Go-Go news and reviews

JM ate the peanut butter cupcake.
Nichole ate the breakfast biscuit with bacon & egg, and a latte.
We also got a 6-pack of cupcakes and a Valentine macaroon.
The bill was $10, or $5/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole both gave Cupcakes-A-Go-Go a B+ (see our grading rubric).

Cupcakes-A-Go-Go is fun. The small, bright storefront in a Mineral Point strip mall does brisk trade in smash cakes and weddings, but even if that's not your demo there's delicious stuff to eat here.

Breakfast muffin

We got breakfast: a huge cornbread muffin baked around an egg, topped with bacon, was very hearty yet flavorful. A bright red, heart-shaped macroon was a Valentine's Day special. It was pleasantly chewy, with good "feet" (is that the right word for the little edge on a macaroon?). JM's peanut butter cupcake was nice but large and a sugar bomb (though not as much as Gigi's). Later, we discovered that A-Go-Go likes to a-hide-hide 'stuff' in the bottom of their cupcakes (such as an entire Oreo).

We also got a six-pack of cupcakes to share with some friends. S'mores, simple chocolate, banana creme (with Nilla wafer!), and more were all good, and not too huge nor did they get lost under a mountain of frosting; however, something about the crumbly texture of each cake made us decide in the end that Cupcakes-A-Go-Go wasn't a go-to, per se.
