Red Jett Sweets: Tasty and Fun Cupcakes

C is for Cupcake and that’s good enough for me!  I’m so glad we have several different cupcake truck/trailers in the Metroplex. Of the three I have visited so far, they are all unique, tasty and very supportive of each other. I’ve talked about the other two trucks, last, but certainly not least in my cupcake series is Red JettSweets out of Fort Worth.

Red Jett Sweets is a fun, fun cupcake truck! The owners are fun, the cupcakes are fun, and everything they do is fun! I’ve visited Red Jett a couple of times and have not been never disappointed.   

My first visit was early fall and I tried several flavors, both seasonal and standard and none disappointed. They are also adorable to look at! I don’t know which is better, the smell, the taste, or the cuteness of these cakes!  

The first time I visited Red Jett Sweets, the flavors of the day were Red Jett Velvet, Peter Pumpkin, Vanilla Echo, Chocolate Echo, Vanilla Chocolate and Chocolate Vanilla. Of course, in the name of blogging, I had to have one of each. The first thing you notice when you get one of these cakes is that the smell is amazing, fresh, sweet, yumminess, in a smell. That first bite is pure bliss!

My favorite is the Red Jett Velvet. Perfect Red Velvet cake and a cream cheese frosting that is the exact blend of sweet and creamy. Chocolate Echo and Vanilla Echo are standard flavors that Red Jett has on the menu on a regular basis. The Chocolate Echo is dark chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache. In other words, a chocolate lover’s dream come true! Vanilla Echo is a vanilla bean cake with cream cheese icing. Wow, the flavors in this were pure and strong. If you like vanilla, this is your cake! 


The Chocolate Vanilla and its opposite, Vanilla Chocolate were also tasty with flavors that let you know that everything was freshly made with high quality ingredients. During the late fall season, one of Red Jett’s seasonal items was Peter Pumpkin. I think the name should have been Peter Pumpkin Perfection!  The flavor was full, with the right spice blend that made you know that it was the holidays and it was perfectly okay to enjoy every bite of this dessert.


Around the end of December, I visited Red Jett and had two other flavors, Peppermint Cloud and Coconut. Again, I was not disappointed. The flavors proved that these cakes are made daily and brought straight to the customers! After much thought, I have decided that coconut is my favorite, coconut cake, butter cream frosting, covered with layer of shredded coconut. Pure cupcake perfection and it looks good too!




Red Jett has been busy the last few months. They very recently opened a kitchen co-op that is larger and more convenient than the commercial kitchen they previously used. Last week, they also were seen competing on Cupcake Wars. Although they did not win, they did a great job representing Fort Worth and we are all the beneficiaries of their experience. All month long, Red Jett’s special flavors will be those that they made to compete in the show’s Wicked theme. 

Follow Red Jett Sweets on Facebook and Twitter to find out their locations, they are both mobile and spend much of the weekends at the Fort Worth Food Truck Park.

  1. I agree the red velvet is amazing! I bought it, a flying monkey (banana cupcake with the best chocolate ganache I've ever had), and a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting. They are very generous with the frostings, a good thing because I could eat just frosting. My amazon, quaker & lovebird liked the doggie cupcake, too. Yummy fun truck!
