Food truck review: Rockstar Bakeshop
Classic rock-inspired whoopie pies go gourmet.
Denver and Kristin Leonard of Rockstar Bakeshop have incorporated their love for Classic Rock music into the lowly Whoopie Pie by naming each of their creations for a classic rock hit song or album. And just like the glitter, glamour and lights at a rock concert where anything goes, they’ve unleashed their creative imaginations to bring DFW unexpected Whoopie Pies like you’ve seen before.
Our stroll down memory lane begins with “Sweet Caroline.” Neil Diamond wrote this song about a girl. Just imagine if he’d met Rockstar’s Sweet Caroline first...
Whoopie Pies never seemed so good
I’ve been inclined
To believe they never would...
The good times have never been so good as when you bite into the Strawberry Cake combined with Hazelnut Vanilla Buttercream swirled with Nutella. I always pictured Caroline as a strawberry blonde, how about you? And she tastes so sweet when your lips meet...
Order a “Summer in the City” and you’ll want to make sure you get every Lovin’ Spoonful of this delectable Whoopie Pie.
Cool town, evening in the City
Dressed so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a Whoopie
Gonna look in every corner of the City.
Hot summer day or cool summer night, the perfect treat is the cool Blueberry cake sandwiching a Basil Mint Buttercream and Lemon Curd.
If you get there too late, Rockstar Bakeshop may be sold out. Don’t let that happen or you and your Motley Crue may want to “Shout at the Devil.”
Shout, Shout, Shout
Shout at the Devil
He’ll be the love in your eyes
Depending on whose version of the lyrics you hear, I can’t make the promise later in the chorus that Shout at the Devil will put the thrill back in bed but there’ll be love in your eyes when you wrap your lips around the luscious chocolate cake paired with a Godiva Chocolate Liqueur Buttercream infused with a white chocolate Grenache. I get it! Devour one of these beauties and you’ll want to Shout at the Moon!
I admit it. I’m the wrong demographic to be a White Zombies fan. In fact I’m not a big fan of plain old zombies. But even if you’ve never liked zombies before, you’re gonna want to give the White Zombie from Rockstar Bakery a try.
I know – you’re expecting song lyrics here unless you are a White Zombie fan (the group). Honestly, I looked up some of the lyrics and just couldn’t relate them to anything as sweet and sumptuous as this Whoopie Pie. You’ll just have to ask Denver or Kristin about their inspiration for the White Zombie.
Don’t get me wrong. The Vanilla Cake is a great partner for the Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur Buttercream and White Chocolate Ganache. One bite of this delight and there’s no way you’ll be mistaken for a zombie with that big grin on your face.
If you’ve never had a Whoopie Pie, the decision to look up Rockstar Bakeshop is a no-brainer. You’ve got no idea that legend has it that the original Whoopie pie was little more than leftover cake batter and icing. Denver and Kristin have worked their magic and elevated the Whoopie Pie into rock star status, a long way from its humble beginnings. We just had a little fun and gave it the accessories to go with its Rockstar status.
Rockstar Bakeshop is always on the move, literally and as they develop the business. Check the Rockstar website for information about their brown bag breakfasts available on Tuesday & Thursday and how you can get custom labels on your order of Whoopie Pies. Follow them on Facebook or Twitter for their scheduled locations. Just look for the black & white checkered truck! Denver and Kristin are waiting to unleash their creative Whoopie Pies on you.
