Brownie: "Hold the phone, Blondie. Hold. The. Phone.
Blondie: "What is wrong with you? I'm at H&M trying on clothes."
Brownie: "The Treats Truck has cupcakes in ice cream cones! Ice cream cones I tell you."
I haven't had a conecake since, um, my mom made them for me in third grade and I was like the coolest kid in the class for about a week. It was almost as awesome as the time I showed up back from vacay rocking the first slap bracelet anyone in my elementary school had ever seen. But I digress...back to the conecakes. I had to have them.
I waited in the line which actually wasn't too bad for the 45th street location and silently willed the people in front of me not to take the last conecakes. Then I ordered a vanilla and chocolate and gingerly walked three blocks over to meet Blondie.
The verdict. Mmm, good. The vanilla conecake while it rose more in the cone was still a bit dry, though the frosting was improved from the vanilla cupcake we tried a little while back.
The chocolate was the true winner. Just the right amount of chocolate, tasty frosting, moist cake. Can't ask for anything more. Well, I suppose the cones could have been a bit crunchier. Not sure if their softness was a function of being baked or the extreme humidity we've been having.
Right now the conecakes are part of the specials menu, so they might not be available every day. At $3.50 a pop they are definitely on the pricier end of the Treats Truck treat scale. So while I probably wouldn't go for one all the time, considering I haven't had a conecake since third grade it was worth it to me. Certifiably delicious.
