Tamara’s the Cake Guru [Cherry Cheesecake Cupcake]


After lunch at Jansen’s Bar and Restaurant this afternoon, we headed to a new cupcake place in Oshkosh that came highly recommended by our lunch companions. Tamara’s the Cake Guru is located on 1529 Oregon Street in Oshkosh and is worth the drive. Let’s just say this place was a little piece of heaven. I think Oshkosh may be home of the two best cupcake places in the Fox Valley (the other being Caramel Crisp Cafe downtown).

When we walked in the small bakery, the smell took me away. It was a nice complement to what my eyes soon laid eyes on. There were probably 12 different types of colorful cupcakes behind the glass counter and about 10 large cake displays sitting around the large windows. They were all decorated adorably, whether it be for a wedding, fall festival or a baby shower. These cakes were impressive and 100% better looking than any dessert I have every attempted to make. We took our place in line, looking starry-eyed at the choices of cupcakes that were in the case. As you can see below, they were colorful and all wrapped in decorative wax paper. They were even on the cheap. $2.50 for one huge cupcake that probably was the equivalent of a pound of sugar.

I cannot imagine walking into this place, having to choose from this many flavors. I thought picking from about 12 was rough. Anyways, I decided on the Cheery Cheesecake Cupcake. It was vanilla cake with cherry filling in the middle with cream cheese frosting and a fresh cherry on the top. It was to die for. I even scraped the wax paper to make sure I didn’t leave any cupcake behind. If you are ever in the mood for a cupcake and live in Guatemala, New York, Egypt, or even as far a Green Bay, make the trip. You will not regret it!
