Cupcakes are good for the soul

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??
