Product Review: Wicked Good Cupcakes in Jars

Remember this news story about the cupcake in a jar not making it through airport security? That cupcake was a from a bakery located outside of Boston and appropriately named Wicked Good Cupcakes. After tasting the Cupcakes in Jars, TFAW can confirm that they are wicked good.

Miss Yunks received Peanut Butter Surprise, Chocolate Guinness & Baileys, and Cuckoo for Coconut. We were both all about the Chocolate Guinness & Baileys — dense chocolate cake baked with Guinnness Extra Stout layered with Baileys infused cream cheese buttercream frosting.

Each layer was full of flavor and the different textures melded together flawlessly. I absolutely loved the chocolate fudge frosting on top and could really taste the Baileys in the creamy tangy frosting.

In addition to our beloved Chocolate Guinness & Baileys, A-Tooch received a Cookies n Cream and Chocolate Lab jar. The Chocolate Lab was so decadent and gooey I shared it with a friend (also totally do-able with these since there’s nearly 2 cupcakes packed into every 8 oz. mason jar).

We were impressed that the Cupcakes in Jars tasted fresh the day we received them, and still tasted fresh a week later. These would make an excellent and unique gift for any dessert lover; Wicked Good Cupcakes ships throughout the country.

    My friend wanted to try a “Wicked Good” cupcake today since we were in Boston and since she saw this on “The Shark Tank” so she bought one at Fanueil Hall in Boston. The little cubby hole where the cupcakes were sold had the feel of a little warehouse where one would expect to find a spark plug and not a food product. The cupcake itself tasted like any other cupcake you could buy or bake at home. The only difference being the name, the price and the packaging. If you want an overpriced cupcake you can go to “Sweet” or “Crumbs” and get a cupcake three times as big for half the price. The “Wicked Good” Cupcakes sell for $7.00 and are in a tiny little jar that contains about 4 small bites of cupcake. For me this really is a ridiculous gimic and a feeble attempt at justifying an excessive cost for a common cupcake . The $7.00 you pay for the cupcakes is for the packaging and to assure Kevin O’Leary gets a return on his investment. It would not surprise me though if this product took off. Marketing is a powerful tool for gullible people. I remember back in the 70’s someone had the ridiculous idea of selling a rock in a box and marketing them as “Pet Rocks” and that turned into a craze. My friend and I will never buy these cupcakes again. Although Our curiosity was satisfied it was not impressed

    I am severely disappointed in Wicked Good Cupcakes. After seeing them on Shark Tank, and having come from my home state, I was eager to try them out. I decided to send a couple cupcakes to my dad as a gift. I paid as much in shipping via UPS as I did for the cupcakes, which was fine and I was happy to pay it.

    The problem arises when UPS claims they delivered the package to a 6 story apartment building and leaves the package in the main unlocked lobby. You can imagine how many apartments are in this building! Any delivery service with any common sense would have rung the apartment number doorbell to alert a package was delivered. Worst case scenario *should have been* to leave a notice in the mailbox and bring the package back to UPS. My dad could have picked his gift up that very same evening or at worst, the next day. He was not given that opportunity. And now we are told by Wicked Good Cupcakes they do not stand by their choice of delivery service, and UPS says it was left and that there is nothing they are willing to do about the fact I paid $26 and received nothing. When you check the tracking number link, it says it was left at the front door. This is totally irresponsible delivering. I only thank my lucky stars I placed a small order and not a large one.

    Buyer Beware: A product is only as good as the delivery you do or don’t get.

    I agree 100% with Robert S.’s comment above. I love Shark Tank. I was so excited to try these “wicked good” cupcakes! I ordered 4 cupcakes & shipping for $50. It was 6 days for delivery, only because I was not going to pay an extra $20 to get them sooner. I have never been so disappointed in my life! The cupcakes were SO DRY and tasted just like they were out of a box! Actually I’m pretty sure I could have made them out of a box and they would have been better. The icing tasted like the icing you get at Walmart on their pre-made cupcakes. I would not spend another dollar on these, let alone invest. O’Leary must have tried something different because these were disgusting! Chocolate Birthday, Vanilla Confetti, Sea Salt Caramel, & Red Velvet. The Red Velvet was the better of the four. I recommend if you want a well made cupcake for a decent price, try your local bakery. Otherwise, I assure you, you can make them yourself out of a box. SO DISAPPOINTING!!! 🙁
