Monmouth County Cupcake Manhunt - Chocolate Carousel

I've sampled a third location in my hunt for a cupcake bakery in Monmouth County. I don't want to count my cupcakes before they're baked, but I think I found a slice of heaven.

Location #3 - Chocolate Carousel, Wall
I've heard of this bakery before and actually had chocolate covered pretzels from here at a party once. They recently relocated so this is the first time I've been to the new location. As soon as you enter this bakery, there are beautifully created cupcakes on display. Oh, what to choose? Here are the 4 that the boys and I decided upon this day:

From top left going clockwise, there is a cannoli cupcake, a carrot cupcake, a chocolate cookie cupcake, and a vanilla buttercream cupcake. I have nothing bad to say about any of these cupcakes. They were all delicious, moist and left me wanting more. My #1 choice out of these 4 is definitely the cannoli cupcake. This was a chocolate cake with cannoli filling and and cream on top. Heaven. Just absolute perfection.

The total cost for 4 cupcakes was $12. The Chocolate Carousel bakery is, so far, the go-to location for delicious cupcakes in Monmouth County.
