        Well, it's not so bad as all that. Would they match up against the Manhattan dessert trucks? Maybe not. Are they decent enough for New Haven and to complement the food carts in the SOM/Science Hill area? Sure.

        I've only been once and thought there was too much icing, but next time I go I expect to ask for less. Part of what you are paying for is the experience of decadence -- buying a cupcake from a truck, fer pete's sake! We'll see whether they can weather the current economic storms.

          I've not see the Cupcake Truck yet, but there is NEVER TOO

            There can NEVER be too much icing! What's the point of having a cupcake, if not for the delicious, sweet icing.

              Reasonable people may disagree, true enough. I definitely favor having bites of cupcake that are on the order of 2 parts cake to 1 part frosting, or even 3-1. However, I still like old-fashioned layer cakes so that I can get the extra frosting in the middle.

              1. re: tripster

                I'm reasonable, but I just don't understand when people say "there was too much frosting". If you're having cake/or cupcakes, there should be enough frosting that the cake doesn't go down dry. I always love the corner piece on a sheet cake (more frosting!) :)
