Food Review - Cupcakes To Go Go

I have a couple of friends that swear by Cupcakes To Go Go located in Edmond, Oklahoma.  They say their cupcakes are the best in the state and that I should give them a try.  I love and adore my friends, but I've come to the conclusion that we don't have the same tastes when it comes to cupcakes. Their #1 flavor recommendation was the Almond Resort.  First of all, I'm not a fan of fake almond.  I love real almonds, but the fake flavoring just doesn't do it for me.  My friends didn't believe there was a fake almond taste at all, but simply explained it to be like the most incredible wedding cake ever made.  So, I gave this place and their Almond Resort a try.  
My conclusions are that these are not from scratch cupcakes.  The texture was that of a boxed mix.  It was piled pretty high with almond buttercream frosting.  I'm also guessing the buttercream was made of shortening (Crisco) and not butter.  My reason to believe that is due to the fact that it was 104 degrees out and I left 3/4 of 2 uneaten cupcakes in my car for about 1 1/2 hours and they didn't melt.  Also, the buttercream frosting tasted like that fake almond extract of which I'm not a fan.  
We all have different tastes and that's part of what makes the world so beautiful.  Boxed cake mix topped with fake flavoring buttercream that's piled high isn't appealing to me in the least. If you're a fan of a consistent cake that's piled high with buttercream frosting, then this is your place.  You'll love it!  I'll stick to my favorite place which meets my snobbish occasional cupcake needs, Sara Sara Cupcakes.

I am curious what your opinion is of Gigi's Cupcakes...have you ever been? I have once and their frosting piles on about 3 inches above the cake, but it does give a bit of frosting with every bit... I have to say, I like Sara Sara better too! So glad there is one in Edmond now!
