Baking it to the streets

Vegas’ food trucks have been plentiful and celebrated for the last couple of years, so I’m not new to the food truck phenomenon.  However, I was intrigued by the lines of food trucks on the National Mall in D.C.  In Vegas, they’re usually only gathered in one spot for special events.

FroYo.  Popcorn.  Pretty standard fare.  American food?  Burgers and onion rings apparently qualify.  Lebanese food out of a truck?  Interesting!

The one I liked the best, though, was Curbside Cupcakes.  First, it was a pink truck.  Love it!  Then, the clever alliteration.  Too cute!  It was also a relief that only three flavors were offered: Red Velvet, Chocolate Delight, and Vanilla Bean.  Too many options equal too much time spent deciding on the side of the road.

After the heat of the jalapenos in my lunch at Elephant & Castle, I thought Vanilla Bean would be a refreshing choice, and I was right.  The vanilla flavor was spot on, and the dark flecks in the frosting made me feel fancy.  The ratio of frosting to cake was ideal.

It was gone by the time we finished our walk back to the parking garage.
