Many people who know me, know my feelings about Lola’s Cupcakes. The icing is delicious but the cakes themselves… so so. I know it’s extremely hard, to get a cupcake, where the icing and cake are both as good as each other. The only cupcakes I’ve found that has had that magical mixture are the ones from Crumbs and Dollies. Anyway, the cupcakes aren’t the reason why I’m writing this post.
Lola’s Cupcakes Milkshakes Are Too Tasty For Words
Well, that’s kind of a lie, because I’m going to try, and put it into words. I tried the Lola’s Cupcake milkshake, to kill some time, before going to an event. Not that it was a hardship to try them.
There are plenty of Lola’s stores in London. Many of them are little carts or tiny little kiosks. I went to the Covent Garden store, which is a kiosk, between Mango and The Nike Store.
When I asked for the milkshake I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I genuinely thought it was going to be a milkshake, made with flavoured syrups. Boy, was I massively wrong. The milkshake is made of… wait for it… Ice cream and a cupcake of your choice! Yes, you get a Lola’s Cupcake in this milkshake. Certainly, this isn’t a choice for anyone on a diet! Or anyone trying to watch their sugar intake.
The cupcake I chose was Chocolate Hazelnut. Which they then blend up with vanilla ice cream. Sounds decadent right? Well, it could have even more so. But, I declined the offer on cream to top it off.
It’s hard to describe the way this milkshake tastes. I could liken it to cookies and cream ice cream. Or perhaps… Do you remember when at a kids parties, you’d have ice cream and cake? It’s very similar to that. I was extremely pleased that it wasn’t too sickly. It could have been if the ice cream was strongly flavoured. But, as it’s just the cake with the strong flavour, it worked well. The best way to describe it is that it was simply delicious!
What do you think of Lola’s Cupcakes?
As mentioned, I have mixed feelings, about the cupcakes. Have you tried them before? If so let me know which one you liked. I will give it a try to see if it can change my mind about them.
