Sweet Tooth Fairy

Where: Sweet Tooth Fairy, 1227 S University Avenue, Provo (across the street from Provo Towncenter Mall)

Who Went: Owen & Chelsey

Number of Visits: 1

What We Ordered: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcake & Raspberry Lemonade Cupcake

What It Cost: $5.02

What We Thought:

Oh the popular cupcake. How fun and cute and perfectly sized. Just enough sugary happiness for one. That was my mentality when I coerced Owen into taking me to The Sweet Tooth Fairy after a particularly excruciating midterm.

When we got to the cupcake shop, there was no one inside. We waited around in the awkwardly silent shop for a few minutes until the girl running the register finally came through the back door...oh sorry to interrupt, were you eating cupcakes back there? She kind of pouted while we looked at the different cupcake options...I guess it was like 8:30 but come on lady. A little customer service would have been nice. We made our choices as quickly as we could and then decided to get them to-go because we felt awkward just eating our two cupcakes alone in that shop. The individual carrying cases for the cupcakes were hands-down the best part of the whole cupcake experience.

The cupcakes were average -- a little dry and not really that creative. My raspberry cupcake was chewy and not moist at all, though I did like the tartness of the lemon frosting and the fact that you could actually see raspberry seeds in the cupcake itself. Plus, let's be honest - I like pink. Owen's was your typical pumpkin chocolate chip with cream cheese frosting. The only problem with this was that they were also average size -- three bites and they were gone. More than 80 cents a bite? I don't know if it's worth it.

What You Should Do: Give it a try. You'll probably get a more friendly typical bubbly-cupcake-selling-BYU-girl than I did, and that really would have helped the experience. Personally, I'm more of a Cocoa Bean cupcake fan, but if you happen to be craving a sweet treat and you have lots of cash and you're near the Provo Towncenter Mall, then go and try it. I think I may go back and try some of their macarons or cookies -- I hear the black & white cookie is pretty darn awesome.

  1. Their macarons are no good, or at least they were no good last June when I had one. Stick with cupcakes or just go to Cocoa Bean!

  2. Good to know -- thanks for the tip!! You saved me from another trip down there :)

  3. The Chocolate is a great place for cakes, cupcakes and brownies! You should give it a try. Their cake is the best I have had and the service is great! The atmosphere is also fun. :)

  4. We'll have to check it out! I went there once for a bridal shower, but didn't really get to sample much, so we're definitely going to have to go back :)

  5. I've been to several of the cupcake bakeries around here, and sweet tooth fairy is definitely my favorite by far! Next time (it's definitely worth another try) go for the vaNiella squared--it's the moistest, most deliciously addictive white cupcake I've ever eaten. Avoid any of the berry-cupcake ones (other than the strawberry shortcake, which has a white cupcake base and strawberry frosting). The toasted cupcake (white or chocolate) is amazing too. Their cake bites are really good, but at $1 a piece they're pretty pricey.

  6. I love the strawberry shortcake cupcakes. I've been in several times and had the same experience as others. The women behind the counter make you feel like you are putting THEM OUT. It's very uncomfortable. Maybe if they put more sweetness in their customer service like they do their cupcakes they would have more customers. Just sayin'.
