Monster Cupcakes is an adorable little Cupcake shop in Kyungridangil in Itaweon. As the name – and the picture- may suggest, they sell the cutest horror-themed cupcakes.
We went there at around 8 or 9 pm, and there weren’t many choices availible- it was either the Tiramisu or the Dark Chocolate. I’ve heard that if you get a little more diligent and get there before everything has been devoured, you’ll be able to see flavours such as Vanilla, Apple Cinnamon, Red Velvet, and Mint, to name just a few.
We chose this cutie- Dark Chocolate, 4500 won, with a gummy worm on top!

So what did we think of it?
Uh.. two stars out of five. The tastes was just- not good. It was more like a sponge cake than a cupcake; no moistness, very spongy and.. just not a good flavour. The frosting was hard with all the sugar, not creamy with that zing of just the right sweetness as it should be.
We really wanted to like it- I mean, how cute are these Jack Skellington Vanilla cupcakes– but no, gurl. Especially at that steep price, jus’ not worth it.
