A new cupcake store just opened here!
The first cupcake store in this town and I went today and got a dozen for the office. A cupcake run! Ha!!
They've been selling out every day so I went right after lunch and I was able to get a good variety of the ones they had available for today. The classic Red Velvet plus Pink Cadillac, Razzle Dazzle, Key Lime, Strawberry Lemonade and Strawberry Shortcake. I chose the Razzle Dazzle, the chocolate one in the corner of this picture. It was chocolate with chocolate ganache, a raspberry cream in the middle and the frosting was raspberry with glittery sprinkles. It was delicious!! The only thing we really didn't like was the Crisco-like taste the frosting left behind in our mouths. The cupcakes were still really, really good, though, and I understand why they're selling out every day. If they put my mama's buttercream frosting on top of those amazing cupcakes, they'd be perfection. Just sayin'. :)
If you're wondering how cupcakes fit in my South Beach project, they don't. I am extremely hormonal this week so don't judge me. You might get cut. :) I have been ill as a hornet since Tuesday. I even snapped at the mailman today but he so totally had it coming. I actually felt the hormonal imbalance when it happened. Like a surge of bitchiness all of a sudden. That's never happened before. I've been having my sleep interrupted a lot because I wake up covered in sweat a few times a week. So not cool. I know that night sweats are all part of the menopause process but dang, I JUST turned 44. I'm too young for this mess. I had a complete blood panel done last year, though, that showed I was premenopausal. So, too young or not, here it comes.
So, yeah, I ate a freakin' blankety-blank cupcake today!!! You wanna fight about it??
