Before I left Omaha yesterday afternoon I had to try out the newest cupcake bakery in town, Jones Bros Cupcakes!
I was drawn to the bakery by the sweet smell of freshly baked cupcakes and was greeted with a variety of samples when I walked through the door. I tried the Black and White cupcake (Valrhona chocolate cake with vanilla butter cream and Godiva white chocolate liqueur) and the Chocolate cupcake (French Valrhona chocolate cake with callebaut chocolate frosting).
When I finally got around to leaving the bakery, I walked away with a Chocolate Raspberry (Valrhona chocolate cake with raspberry topped with cream cheese frosting), a Chocolate cupcake (the sample had me sold), and a slice of Cinnamon Swirl cake (Bundt cake infused with orange and packed with streusel), all to take home and share with the family!
I paired the cupcakes with a delicious Raspberry Watermelon Champagne Spritzer! Simply blend watermelon and raspberries together, mix in champagne, and add sugar to taste. Enjoy in a tall champagne glass – love this summer cocktail!
If you haven’t checked out Jones Bros Cupcakes in Aksarben Village in Omaha you definitely should make a trip for a summer treat that won’t disappoint!
