My birthday was last month, and I planned about 1,285,602 things to do that day.
Go to the lake, get a birthday morning donut, check out a cake decorating store I’ve been dying to go to, try a new cupcake shop, go out to eat with family… I have a toddler who naps and a hubby who works until 6. What was I thinking?
I did get to go to the lake. But trying a new cupcake shop didn’t happen until a couple weeks later.
Anyone ever been? They have locations all over the US.
I always feel so inspired at a cupcake shop.
1. Candy Bar Crunch: Yellow cake with bits of Butterfinger baked in, topped with Butterfinger buttercream frosting and crushed Butterfingers.
2. Hot Fudge Sundae: Devil’s food cake with dark chocolate chips, filled with ganache, topped with a buttercream frosting drizzled in chocolate, with nuts and a cherry on top.
3. Italian Cream: Italian cream cake topped with cream cheese frosting and toasted coconut.
4. Chocolate Cola Cake: Rich chocolate cola cake topped with chocolate cola buttercream frosting both made with Coca-Cola.
You may have noticed that these cupcakes have MOUNTAINS of frosting. And it’s smooth and creamy and perfect. But it’s A LOT. My hubby and I were totally wussies and shared one cupcake and were completely strung out on sugar after just that!
Would you give these cupcakes a swirl? (That’s Gigi’s tagline. I love that!) Are you all about the frosting or is the cake where it’s at? Which one would you choose?
Check out “Cupcake” – the shop I tried out on my birthday last year!
