Taking on the Treats Truck One Treat at a Time: Conecakes Madness!!!

I'm one of those crazies who gets obsessed with a food and has to eat it over and over again in every variation possible until I find my favorite type, and possibly drop that food out of my repertoire forever. This is currently happening with the conecakes. Each weekend I think "What conecakes is Kim thinking up for this week?" Each day I wonder "Will I be able to score a different option?!" On Tuesday, Brownie and I scored, we scored big time.

Brownie and I got word that conecakes would be on the docket the only two days possible until Labor Day Weekend. Holy pajamas Batman! We promptly left our offices in time to survey the scene. The Truck was in the "Secret Spot" as I like to refer to it since 38th St and 5th Ave days seem to have shorter lines. Upon arrival I spied, not two, not three, but four, count it people, FOUR (4) different varieties of conecakes. Red Alert, Brownie!! Man Alive!

In addition to the vanilla-vanilla, chocolate-chocolate, we had chocolate chip AND mint chocolate chip.

Inside the Mint Chocolate Conecake

First up, the mint chocolate. While Brownie was photoging, I was licking frosting off the wax paper. That mint green frosting was actually tinted vanilla, but see those chocolate chips, oh, they're minty. Subtly minty, but definitely adding to the mintyness. The mint flavor continues its subtleties into the chocolate cake, which also had chocolate chips in it (ours seems to have sunk to the bottom of the cone, but my big bites exposed them for all they were. The picture's big because they're hard to see; click on it for more). Nothing was too sweet, or overly powerful in the mint or chocolate arena.

Onto the chocolate chip! At first I though chocolate chips was just in the frosting as there were regular semi-sweets EMBEDDED in it, but one bite revealed chips baked into the vanilla cake! Making it chocolate chip cake!! Again, more delicate than sweet or powerful. I preferred this, while Brownie chose the mint.

Now, we've all agreed that the cones get a little moist/soft due to baking, and the novelty of it all cannot be denied. But they're just so damn cute, I have to love them and disregard the cons. They bring rays of sunshine to my cold, dark world! And you can't deny me happiness or love!

I forgot to mention that the chocolate chips melted at the bottom of the cone were intentional. Kim was putting them there as a little surprise at the end of the cake.
