Bubba Sweets serves up their unique spin on cupcakes in Huntington Beach, CA

Erieka Pimentel (aka Bubba) has been making her family’s 1967 blue ribbon cake recipe for family and friends for years. In September 2011, Erieka and her husband, James, opened up Bubba Sweets to show off her unique spin on cupcakes and other sweets. Her sultry red hair, spunky style, and big smile invite you in. The walls are adorned with a yummy pink color, reminding you of cake frosting. All of their flavors of the day are displayed on silver cake stands and made fresh daily.

PMS Cure is Hershey’s chocolate cake, caramel buttercream, filled and topped with sea salt caramel. The chocolate cake was moist and the scent of chocolate will fill your senses. The caramel buttercream was creamy with a subtle caramel flavor. The star of the cupcake was the homemade caramel. It’s gooey like it just came out of the vat and just before it hits the candy stage. It was velvety and sensual. Don’t forget the middle. Inside you’ll find salted caramel for that sweet and salty balance. Thumbs up, way up!
