Caramel Apple Mini Cakes at Costco

Caramel Apple Mini Cakes at Costco

Brand new mini cake flavor at Costco! You can now find Caramel Apple Mini Cakes at Costco Bakery! These are a caramel flavored cupcake, topped with a condensed milk icing and apple filling, and a drizzle of caramel! Social media is eating these up [figuratively and literally] lol!

Mini cakes are made fresh in the Costco Bakery daily. We see a new mini cake flavor periodically, sometimes they stay for a few weeks and sometimes a month or two – given this fall themed flavor and the really positive response to them, we’d expect these to stay around for a month or two…but you never know! Occasionally, we’ll even see two mini cake flavors available in the bakery at the same time. To that point, we also heard that the double chocolate mini cakes are back in some stores (we didn’t spot them at our store, but check the bakery for those too!).

Caramel apple tastes great, it’s a nice sweet blend. Apple is easy to chew, it’s neither too hard or too soft. Same level of sweetness goes to condensed cream with caramel. The cream melts in your mouth! Cake’s texture is semi-solid akin to corn muffin. Not as soft as I like but I understand why it is the way it is. Cake also tastes of cinnamon, yum! As someone with a sweet tooth, I like it!

Our Take

We’re pretty forgiving of the mini cakes from Costco because of their very favorable price point and good flavor selection, but they notoriously have ingredients that we try to avoid (we’re not perfect though we try!). These Caramel Apple mini cakes have better ingredients than most other mini cake flavors, particularly as it relates to the icing. We often find it’s an oil based buttercream, but this buttercream frosting appears to be made with real butter! That said, you’ll still find palm oil, corn syrup, and artificial flavors on the ingredient list for the caramel apple mini cakes. Not everyone cares so much about this, so for those who do, there you go…and for those who don’t, disregard! 🙂 Ingredient list for the caramel apple mini cakes above.

  1. I wish the package would have stated the Mini Cakes needed to be refrigerated. They were in the cake section, un-refrigerated. Guess I’ll have to throw away the rest.

    1. Oh shoot! If you’re headed back anytime soon you can definitely return them – but I know storing perishables just to return them doesn’t always work out (it rarely does for me, at least).

    1. I haven’t tried freezing them, but I would think they would be okay. Personally I’d try it, but I would allow to thaw in the fridge (not countertop) which might take awhile…but cream cheese frosting has a high fat content, so I think it would freeze okay? The worst thing that can happen is that the texture is off – but I think you always lose a little of that in the freezing/thawing process…I don’t see why these would be more than the usual? Let me know if you try it – sorry I don’t have a concrete answer for you!
