The sponge cake itself was very wet at the bottom, and a little dry at the top, but very good. It has a nice cinnamon flavor.

The mousse filling was not as spicy as we were expecting but was creamy and cinnamon-y as well, and delicious. We only wished there had been more of it. The frosting was a good quality traditional buttercream. The sprinkles were a lovely visual touch as well as a solid texture addition. The design on top was a simple white chocolate.

Overall, this was a surprisingly good cupcake. It tasted exactly like Red Hots without the lasting burn. We would have liked more filling, but other than that, it’s a pretty balanced cupcake. We would definitely get this again.

The cupcake sells for $5.99, and can be found at Gasparilla Island Grill. And if you’re looking for more sweets for your sweetheart, be sure to check out our reviews of the new cotton candy and pineapple cupcakes!
